KG M40 stats in Warzone & Vanguard

At the time of writing, there are no official stats details available for the KG M40 assault rifle. We do know, however, that it features the second highest damage per shot of all Vanguard assault rifles.

Activision has provided a description of the KG 40 AR in Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 2, giving us a taste of what we can expect on 14th February 2022: "Adopted across several Scandinavian armies during the war, and also the preferred weapon of Anna Drake, the KG M40 is a high-calibre fully automatic weapon that rivals the first three Assault Rifles unlocked in Vanguard."

"Boasting the second highest damage per shot in its category, a similar effective range to the NZ-41, and a fire rate above 600 RPM, this weapon can be a strong contender in mid-to long-distance engagements. Its strengths can be fully unlocked when an Operator can control its recoil, a mix of horizontal and vertical kicks like the Cooper Carbine, but with slightly better centring speed."

So there you have it, an easy and fast way to unlock the KG M40 AR at the start of Warzone Pacific Season 2.
