Best Loadouts for Shi No Numa in CoD Vanguard Zombies

Top weapons for the round-based map.

Months after its release, Call of Duty: Vanguard developers added the highly-demanded round-based mode to Zombies. You can now play the classic Zombies experience on a remastered version of the iconic Shi No Numa map. Here's a guide to the best weapon builds to use in Vanguard Zombies' Shi No Numa.

Best Shi No Numa Weapon Loadouts in Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies

For Shi No Numa gameplay, players should build a strong weapon class that can remain effective from the very first to the endless number of rounds after. In addition to picking the right weapon, you should also make use of other gameplay elements, such as Alter of Covenants, Pack-a-Punch machines, and Tome of Rituals to maximize the effectiveness of your guns and Artifacts.

Here are the best weapons to use in Shi No Numa in Vanguard Zombies:

  • Combat Shotgun
  • Einhorn Revolving Shotgun
  • MG42 Light Machine Gun
  • MP-40 Submachine Gun

  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Barrel: Sawed-Off
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: CGC 2M Wire
  • Underbarrel: M1915 Steady
  • Magazine: 16 Gauge 10 Round Drums
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip

Shotguns are arguably the best weapon class to use in Zombies (besides Wonder Weapons, of course). The Combat Shotgun is the first weapon on our list because it's extremely powerful and fun to use. You can make it even better by upgrading it via a Pack-a-Punch machine and equipping Covenant upgrades, such as Ammo Gremlin, Death Blow, and Dead Accurate.

  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Barrel: Klauser 560mm Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1915 Steady
  • Magazine: 16 Gauge 7 Round Cylinder
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip

While the Combat Shotgun is effective right from the initial rounds, the Einhorn Revolving only becomes worth using after you've played for a while and upgraded your Covenants. Since the gun's ammo capacity and reload time are poor, you need Death Blow and Ammo Gremlin for it to be worth using over the Combat Shotgun.

  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 250 Round Box
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip

The next weapon on our list is for players who like full-auto weapons and hate reloading too often. The MG42 LMG is perfect for Zombies, and once upgraded, it becomes even better. Other good LMGs that you can use in Zombies are the UGM-8 and Whitley.

  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip

The MP-40 is an SMG and has the best mobility features out of all the weapons listed here. With this gun build, you can sprint around swiftly while shooting Zombies. You can also use the Owen Gun and M1912 Thompson SMG for a change.

Players should also try using the Panzerfraust Launcher in Vanguard Zombies. With Explosive Expert, Critical Expertise, and Death Blow Covenants, it transforms into the deadliest weapon in the game. Furthermore, Wonder Weapons like the Ray Gun and Wunderwaffe DG-2 are supreme Zombie-killing tools, if you can get your hands on one.

Besides these weapons, try equipping different Artifacts in your custom class to find out what suits you best. Some good options are Aether Shroud, Ring of Fire, and Frost Blast. You should also keep looking for tactical and lethal equipment and use them when necessary.
