Marco 5: SMG
A high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power.
For the highly mobile, aggressive player, there are few better options than rushing into battle with the Marco 5 SMG. It’s great for pushing into objectives, as its high mobility allows you to run circles around the enemy while they struggle to get a bead on your position.
Considering its relatively noticeable recoil and damage falloff at longer distances, the Marco 5 is best when fired from the hip at closer ranges. As the first SMG in Vanguard to feature the Akimbo Proficiency, you’ll soon wonder why you ever needed to aim down sights in the first place.
High fire rate, mobile LMG that excels at creating suppressing fire and pushing enemy positions.
Who says an LMG has to slow you down? Combining high mobility with a high fire rate, the UGM-8 is ideal for players looking to keep pace with their teammates while offering suppressive fire.
This thing chews through ammo, so be prepared to feed it. Boost your ammo capacity with one of several different Magazine options or grab Fully Loaded or the Scavenger Perk to prevent going empty in the middle of a fight.
Push Dagger: Melee
A blade with a T-shaped grip that allows for increased push power. Easily concealable and deadly in CQC.
Built for speed and stealth, this new melee tool will be a great addition to loadouts where close-quarters fights and silent takedowns are critical to a mission’s success.
Operators can unlock it either through a bundle to be made available during Season Four, or by completing one of two challenges:
In Multiplayer, get 5 Melee Kills with a Primary Weapon in a Single Match 15 times.
In Zombies, get 100 kills with a Melee weapon while shrouded by your Aether Shroud.
Vargo-S: Assault Rifle
An essential armament for versatile play. This workhorse Assault Rifle offers a high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload, and that’s before adding any of its Gunsmith attachments.
During the season, be on the lookout for a new melee-based challenge that can unlock this new Secondary Weapon, along with a new Store Bundle that will feature this bludgeoning tool.
Unlock both the Marco 5 and the UGM-8 for free through the Seasonal Battle Pass System; more information to come.
Unlock the Push Dagger and the Vargo-S in one of two ways: through an in-game weapon-based Challenge or via a Store Bundle to be released later this season, featuring a Weapon Blueprint from this weapon’s family.
