Are STG 44 and M1 Garand Worth Using in Warzone?

The STG and M1 Garand are in Warzone at last, but are the Vanguard weapons worth using in Warzone?

When the WW2 weapons dropped in Warzone Season 6, we were certain they were set to be overpowered. After all, Activision will want to get fans hyped and pre-ordering Vanguard to grind out new powerful weapons.

But how powerful are they really?

Incredibly, it appears that Vanguard guns can use 10 attachments in Warzone! That feat in itself is going to make the weapons a nightmare to balance properly.

And it seems that both the STG44 and M1 Garand have very little recoil in Warzone already, making them rather straight shooters. But what plagues both weapons is the Vanguard weapons’ insane amount of visual recoil.

JGOD compares the STG to the AK-47 in terms of overall damage statistics, but we’d wager that the Vanguard gun is far harder to use. However, once we can edit the weapons for ourselves on Vanguard’s launch day, we’re sure both weapons will be even more viable than they already are.

Although both the STG 44 and M1 Garand are powerful Warzone weapons, we wouldn’t call them overpowered. After all, they’re not as easy to perform well with as Warzone Season 6’s best meta guns.

Warzone is still full of hackers right now, but Activision is teasing an anti-cheat update coming today!

And it’s thanks to cheaters that we’re seeing Ghostface and Frank the Rabbit skins in-game early.

After all, the two cinematic icons are set to make their appearance as part of the upcoming Ghosts of Verdansk Halloween event.
