With this layout, your gun will be able to perform well in mid and close-range fights. The players can conveniently and easily defeat the opponents in close-quarter combats through changes in a rapid sprint to fire speed, hip fire, and movement speed enchantment.

Besides this, it can be lethal at distanced fighting because of the faster speed of bullets and improved recoil management.

A closely packed stock with the main goal of providing fast-speed gameplay at short distances. The players can move around quite swiftly and this will also make it hard for the enemy to hit them. Moreover, it allows you to aim and fire sooner as compared to your adversary.

Its usage can be beneficial for you.

Underbarrel – Operator Foregrip

This underbarrel is the suggested one for Vel-46. Now I will tell you why it is considered the most suitable for this SMG. This majorly works in the favor of hip fire. It provides you accuracy in hip fire and makes it recoil handling more efficient.

On the top of that this also prevents the unsteady aim walking experience.

Muzzle-SA Schalldämpfer 99

Looking for the Super best suppressor? Then SA Schalldämpfer 99 is the one. It suppresses the noise efficiently and, in this way, your opponents won’t be able to spot you easily. If you want to enhance the mid-range abilities of your gun, then this suppressor is the right choice.

Also, you get other two advantages as well, first one is that it reduces the recoil and the second one is that your enemy gets hit promptly.

Rear Grip- ZLR Combat Grip

ZLR Combat Grip gives you fairly nice support in situations where you find recoil controlling super challenging. It makes recoil management easy and also improves it. This has less stability in terms of aiming but the way Vel-46 setup is it will not affect you much.

Laser- STOVL Tac Laser

The recommended Laser sight for Vel-46 is STOVL Tac Laser. This will allow you to experience greater precision and recoil control during hip firing. It increases the capacities of hip-fire.

Best Perks For Vel-46 Loadout

I have made the selection of the right perk easy for you. The perks given below are the most recommended ones so let’s have a look at them in detail.

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix

Double Time

Perk TypeBase Perks

Twice up the period of your tactical sprint through the Double Time perk. It also speeds up the crouching movement. It can be crucial under stressful circumstances.


Perk TypeBase Perks
ReleaseGame Launch
DescriptionResupply ammo and throw knives from dead players.

It is the second base perk, enabling you to take bullets from deceased opponents. It is extremely handy as Vel-46 rapidly runs out of its ammo. If you are among those who survive for a longer time than the rest of your teammates and want to maintain a kill streak, then Scavenger is best for you.

Fast Hand

Perk TypeBonus Perks

If you have ever thought of enhancing your reloading speed then this perk can do it practically for you. During the combats, the main concern is always to get a quicker reload so this perk will serve this purpose for you.

Quick Fix

Perk TypeUltimate Perks

Last but an ultimate perk it is.   With Quick Fix, your health will be restored while accomplishing the objective and after each kill. You don’t have to worry about depleting your health during the battle. Apart from this, it results in quicker leveling of more points by promoting team-based gameplay.

Best Class Equipment for Vel-46

I am not done yet; the last thing to add to my most excellent setup is the equipment that goes perfectly with the weapon. My suggested equipment pickups are given below.

  • Secondary: .50 GS
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box
  • Field Upgrade 2: Portable Radar.
  • Secondary- .05 GS

A desert eagle can be used as an alternative. The magazine holds seven bullets and provides significant damage over a wide range. .05 proves to be a reliable secondary weapon that you can use during combats that include long distances.

One more thing if in case you run out of your Vel-46 ammo then don’t freak out and use this instead.

Tactical-Stun Grenade

In the situations of run and gun, this stun grenade proves to be the most strategic in your enemies’ mobility, speed, and aiming of your enemies, depending on the correct use. By doing so you can easily defeat them and can also make it difficult for them to track you down.

Stun grenade has a variety of uses, as I have mentioned above, but another one is that you can throw it before entering any building or room and then hold your Vel-46 and start hunting your opponents down.

Lethal- Frag Grenade

The frag grenade comes under the lethal category. As you throw it after pulling the pin at the target location, it explodes after some seconds. This grenade is cookable, and you should cook it before throwing it for some seconds so the opponent may not get a chance to pick it up before it blows up.
