Warzone Pacific Update: Best Vanguard Royale Loadout for Caldera

Adding a whole new era of weapons to Warzone hasn't been easy, but Raven Software have just about pulled it off with their Warzone Pacific update and the introduction of Caldera and Vanguard integration. On the whole, it's a fairly solid update - but there's still a lot of work to be done when it comes to squashing bugs and balancing weapons. If you're looking for the best loadout to drop into Vanguard Royale with - while we wait for the next balancing update - we have everything you need to know.


The NZ-41 is a mid-level unlock in Vanguard that packs a punch with erratic recoil - it might not be your first choice in Vanguard's Multiplayer but it should be in Warzone following the Pacific update.

The NZ-41's damage range and solid damage output lend themselves perfectly to Warzone and with a little bit of tweaking, you'll be able to find yourself a force to be reckoned with in Caldera.

FaZe Booya has shared his NZ-41 attachment build for Warzone below - and it's about as good as it gets!

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
    • This could also be replaced with a Silencer - if you want to stay off the radar;
  • Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
    • You could swap this out for the Slate Reflector or the Nydar Model 47;
  • Stock: LOR Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 9mm Sakura 45 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

At the moment, the NZ-41 is very much the meta. ModernWarzone also suggests checking out the Automaton, PPSh-41, and Combat Shotgun. The Combat Shotgun in particular is a little broken and can be used at quite a range for a shotgun.

Looking at the rest of your Vanguard loadout for Caldera, these might be the best options out there at the moment:

  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Perk One: E.O.D
  • Perk Two: High Alert
  • Perk Three: Tracker

Raven Software is due to release a larger weapon balancing update in the coming days - so, we'll keep this updated with any changes when they're available.
