Best BAR Attachments in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Sniper Rifles in Call of Duty: Vanguard usually kill the target with a single shot, which is one of the reasons they’re popular weapons.

However, it can be a significant penalty on those who do not have the greatest aim or want to carry a weapon that can be used from medium and long distances.

The alternative is the BAR rifle. Although it has a low fire rate, this is a rifle that hits like a truck.

It is not about bursting the target, but about multiple chances or hitting those kill shots while you aim at an enemy far away from you.

The BAR works very well at long distances with the right scope, and it does not penalize you for missing the shot, so you can make use of its accuracy and power without being afraid of missing that first shot.

However, you do need really good attachments to make the BAR work this way, and that is why we’re bringing to you the best BAR attachments in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

The Best Attachments

These are the attachments meant to make the bar work at longer distances. It turns the BAR rifle into a hybrid of your usual Assault Rifle and a Sniper Rifle.

With these attachments, you will have precision and damage, making this a dangerous weapon for exposed heads out there that also work to burst down running enemies.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: CGC 27” 2B
  • Optic: Zeiss G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Chariot WR
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: .30-6 12 Round Fast Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point or Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Hardscope
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Muzzle – F8 Stabilizer

The F8 Stabilizer has Sprint to Fire Speed penalties and Hip Fire Accuracy Penalties. However, those are both things that should not worry you too much.

The BAR is not the best weapon for you to run around shooting people down, so the cons of this attachment are not things to worry much about.

You do get +2 Accuracy and +1 Damage Range for this attachment, which makes the BAR more stable and reliable from afar.

Barrel – CGC 27” 2B

This is also an attachment that is intended to improve the stability and accuracy of the BAR rifle.

It does reduce a bit of your Aim Down Sight Speed, but it makes the gun much more controllable as an exchange.

In order to trust the BAR through your scope, we need it to be as steady as it can be. Alternatively, you can also go with the Monitor Brake.

It adds +1 Accuracy — which is never too much — and it has no downside whatsoever.

Optic – Zeiss G16 2.5x

The Zeiss is not the Optic Attachment that has the greatest magnification, but 2.5 will be more than enough in most — if not all — maps.

It has a slight penalty to Aim Down Sight Speed, but it provides Recoil Control, Accuracy, and Zoom.

Stock – Chariot WR

By By now, you will notice that this is not the best rifle for quick scoping since we’re removing a little more Aim Down Sight with this attachment.

However, the Chariot WR provides Accuracy, Recoil Control, and Aiming Stability. All things we want in order to hold down the trigger in case we need.

Underbarrel- Carver Foregrip

Since one of the advantages of the BAR rifle is holding down the trigger, Recoil Control is never too much. That’s why the Carver is a good choice here.

Magazine – .30-6 12 Round Fast Mags

MMagazines give way too many penalties to the BAR, and we don’t want those, so the best one for the jog will be the .30-6 12 Round Fast Mags.

Please note that there is also an option of not using any attachments on the rifle, and it is just fine to do that if you don’t think you need faster Reload Time.

Ammo Type – Hollow Point or Lengthened

Hollow Point is an Ammo Type that removes the damage penalties of hitting limbs, making the rifle much deadlier, especially at distances when you’re aiming at targets you can barely see.

Alternatively, players can also make the choice of going with the Lengthened Ammo Type in case they really trust their aiming skills.

The Lengthened Ammo Type makes your aim more reliable at longer distances due to faster bullet speed.

Rear Grip – Stippled Grip

Stippled Grip improves your Recoil Recovery and Initial Accuracy and Recoil with the BAR rifle without any downside.

This attachment is a no-brainer, really. The recoil recovery is a significant bonus that helps you land a few extra shots when holding down the trigger.

Proficiency – Hardscope or Driller

Hardscope is indeed an interesting proficiency. It increases your Accuracy right when you start Aiming Down.

This is a suitable attachment for quick scoping, but even when it is not the case, it still works very well when used with this loadout.

Alternatively, players can also go with the Driller Proficiency that works very well with the BAR rifle and the suggested loadout.

Driller grants bullet penetration to players, which is something that I particularly like in any of my guns. This allows you to unload your magazine and make bullets rain on enemies that are behind covers.

Kit – Fully Loaded

Fully Loaded is a Kit that makes players start with the Maximum Reserve Ammo, and this is my Kit of choice when using the BAR rifle because I like to Aim Down and unload my magazines when using this weapon.

However, Kits like Fast Melee and Heavy Hitter work just as well depending on your playstyle, so don’t worry too much about this attachment.

Final Thoughts

The BAR is a versatile Rifle. Although it might not have an incredibly fast Time To Kill like the STG-44, for instance, it is quite reliable at longer distances and allows you to effectively use its ammunition.

I usually use the bar along with a quick, faster weapon for short-range distances. The best attachments for the Volk make it quite effective and a good pair with this Bar Loadout.
