A deadly Vanguard AR is being slept in by Warzone players despite an extremely high win rate in Season 5 Reloaded.
After Warzone’s last major update in the form of Season 5 Reloaded, both the Cooper Carbine and Grau 5.56 have established themselves as the go-to meta ARs.
While these options are undeniably strong, their huge popularity leads to many other powerful ARs being overlooked.
Opting to use dormant guns can be incredibly fun, as most players have forgotten they exist and there’s always a chance you’ll find a hidden gem.
Well, that could certainly be the case for a particular Vanguard AR whose win rate has skyrocketed recently in Warzone.
The Volkssturmgewehr AR has a pick rate of 0.5% in Warzone.

While most ARs in Warzone are equipped to laser blast enemies from afar, the Volk differs slightly in that it performs best in medium skirmishes.
This means that it absolutely shreds enemies into closer combat and your opponents are guaranteed to be caught off guard as very few players use it.
Not only that, unlike many other off-meta guns, Volk’s recoil is extremely easy to control, making it easy to land all your shots on target.
The above build aims to maximize the weapon’s damage while boosting recoil, giving you deadly sniper support.
The Volkssturmgewehr got a slight grain in Season 5 Reloaded.
Sure, anyone can say a weapon in Warzone is a sleeper, but what’s so special about the Volk? Well, the Vanguard AR has the stats to back it up.
According to WZRanked, the People have the third highest win rate in Warzone on 4% and an impressive one 1.16 KD beside.
This shows that those who use the People are having great success, so consider using the gun for yourself and see if it helps you get a few wins.
