With Vanguard now in the wild for players to enjoy, users are exploring the many weapons available and there's been some new weapons introduced into the weapon pool that players have flocked too.

The Gracey Auto is one of the many shotguns within the game, and it's been a staple of the game since it was released.

Here's the best loadout for the Gracey Auto in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best Gracey Auto Class for Vanguard

With a staggering, 10 attachments to pick on your weapon, you're truly spoilt for choice.
When choosing your attachments, you'll want to consider what attachments will improve this weapons weak areas and how you tend to play.
As one would expect with any Shotgun, you're going to want to increase the hipfire and spread of the pellets more with the Gracey Auto.


  • Muzzle
    • A5 Smoothbore
  • Barrel
    • CGC 22" Rapid
  • Optic
    • MK.8 Reflector
  • Stock
    • Ragdoll P-Wire
  • Underbarrel
    • SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine
    • Extra Pellets
  • Ammo Type
    • Slug
  • Rear Grip
    • Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency
    • Gung-Ho
  • Kit
    • Quick
There's some Muzzle attachments that are decent for the G-43, but once again, we've chosen the A5 Smoothbore as it'll grant the player a wider pellet spread.
Your Barrel choice will be the CGC 22" Rapid, as players will be able to shoot faster with this barrel equipped.
Your Optic comes down to preference in my opinion the MK. 8 Reflector is one of the best within the game.
For Stock, we've the Ragdoll P-Wire as among the other stocks, this one offers the best movement bonuses, while not taking back from other categories.
The Underbarrel option is one that's subject to change depending as there's some decent options here once again. We've chosen the SMLE Pistol Grip.
The Magazine attachments are vast, and most of them either take away from movement speed or don't do much for the weapon.
So, we've chosen the Extra Pellets option, as each fire will have two more pellets than before.
We've gone with the Slug rounds for this setup, none of the other options are really useable. But, if you want, you can experiment with the Incendiary rounds!
More recoil buffs comes into play with the Rear Grip choice we've opted for with the Stippled Grip.
Your Proficiency also has viable options, Gung-Ho allows you to shoot while sprinting, which is important when using a shotgun.
Your Kit option is going to be Quick, which gives players a little boost to movement.


I would go with the Machine Pistol, simply because it's regarded as one of the best pistols within Vanguard. As well, you're going to need something fast if you run out of ammo in a pinch.

Lethal & Tactical

  • Gammon Bomb
  • Stim Shot

The Gammon Bomb explodes on impact, and will be useful when pushing certain points throughout the map.

While on the flipside, the Stim Shot is going to give players some additonal health when they're in a pinch.


  • Ghost
  • Tracker
  • Lightweight

Ghost will keep you off the enemy radar while is always viable at any given time.

Tracker lets you see enemy footsteps, which can enable you to head where the other team is pushing towards.

The third perk is Lightweight, allowing you to move faster.

Field Upgrade

  • Armor Plates

As the name suggests, this Field Upgrade will allow players to put a bullet proof vest on their player during certain times; givng you some more health.
