All weapon buffs and nerfs in the Vanguard Season 3 update

Vanguard Season 3 Classified Arms has arrived with a fresh set of buffs and nerfs for the arsenal. From the Welgun to the race, we’ve got all the changes together and ready to break down.

It’s time for Vanguard to get a fresh coat of paint in the form of the Season 3 update. Every season aims to change things up a bit to keep things fresh, and this one was certainly no exception.

There are some big hitters coming to the chopping block and you want to get a handle on where things are before you load into a game.

All weapon buffs and nerfs in the Vanguard Season 3 update

The Welgun from Vanguard and Warzone The Welgun was a long-time fan favorite, but it was ripe for a few key changes

It should come as no surprise that the Welgun has received some of the most significant changes in this patch.

A popular choice in both Vanguard and Warzone, Swift Strike lost a little damage range and accuracy reduction on top of that. The 320mm SA Shrouded barrel underwent a similar modification to keep the gun in check.

Welgun

  • Decreased damage range.
  • Increased initial recoil when firing.
  • 320 mm SA jacketed (barrel)
    • Decreased Accuracy Advantage.

Vanguard’s Volksturmwaffe also saw some major updates after the weapon gained popularity after CDL Major II.

Folk really came to the fore in March, but these nerfs could bring it back to earth.

There, pro player Spart showed the world exactly how good the gun was, and it seems like the developers paid close attention to that fact.

    • Movement speed while aiming decreased.
    • Grenades are no longer ejected from the weapon after sustained fire.
    • VDD 287mm (barrel)
      • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.
    • Reisdorf 22V adjustable (stock)
      • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.

That Armaguerra 43, G-43, STG-44,and Enter 100 also saw similar adjustments to racials, with all three nerf sets focusing on movement speed while aiming down the scope.

The Armaguerra 43 crept into the meta prior to these changes.

Armaguerra 43 (SMG)

  • Imerito 180mm short (barrel)
    • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.
  • Imerito TA skeleton (stock)
    • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.

G-43 (sniper rifle)

    • Fitzherbert Short (barrel)
      • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.
    • Wyvern Skeleton (Storage)
      • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.

STG-44 (AR)

    • Konstanz Tactical (camp)
      • Decreased ADS movement speed benefit.

Type 100 (SMG)

  • Sakura 196mm light (barrel)
    • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.
  • Warubachi 134mm Rapid (barrel)
    • Slightly increased accuracy penalty.
  • Warubachi Grip Folding (stock)
    • Decreased speed advantage when aiming while walking.
  • .30 Russian Short 30 circular magazines (Magazine)
    • Increased rate of fire penalty.

The only weapon that received a buff throughout the patch is the PPSH-41, but that too came with a trade-off.

Although the ADS accuracy has been improved, the weapon will not quite have the same hipfire potential as before.

PPSH-41

    • Increased Accuracy.
    • Decreased hip fire accuracy.
    • Kovalevskaya 230 mm BO3P (barrel)
      • Decreased accuracy advantage when firing from the hip.
    • ZAC 300mm (barrel)
      • Decreased Accuracy Advantage.
      • Increased speed penalty for aim walk moves.
