Dark Shroud Automaton Blueprint in COD Vanguard

With 75-round magazine!

December 12, 2021

If you feel 25 bullets per magazine isn’t good enough for your original Automaton, then take a look at this Dark Shroud blueprint in Call of Duty Vanguard with a greatly tweaked magazine.

Automaton is one of Call of Duty Vanguard weapons that has a really good Speed factor, but featuring a 25-round magazine might be a downside for this automatic weapon.

The brand new Dark Shroud blueprint delivers a very specific version of this weapon with a 75-round magazine while keeping the same effectiveness and adding up to the Accuracy.

Dark Shroud Automaton Blueprint in Vanguard

Here is the full build of Dark Shroud Automaton (Special thanks to Phio for sharing the footage):

  • Muzzle: FB Stabilizer
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Barrel: Zac 600mm BFA
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Magazine: Akura 75 Round Drums (4 Mags)
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Stock: Empress Broadsword
  • Proficiecy: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Surplus

Looking at the weapon’s effectiveness, the new custom doesn’t change the Firepower of Automaton, but it does increase the Ammo and Accuracy of the weapon, though Speed drops a little bit.

Unfortunately, the Dark Shroud Automaton blueprint is not available through Battle Pass or Challenges, which means this is probably a purchasable blueprint for which you need to spend some COD Points.

Call of Duty Vanguard is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.

Season One officially went live earlier this week, delivering the new Caldera Pacific map for Warzone, which is still struggling with some severe visual bugs. That being said, Vanguard itself doesn’t seem to have any similar issues in Multiplayer or Zombies.
