In the latest blog post, the team behind Call of Duty: Vanguard gives players an overview of the weapons and loadout system that will launch tomorrow.
One day before the release, the team behind Call of Duty: The Vanguard gives players an overview of the weapons and loading system that will launch with the game tomorrow. It’s been several years since the franchise visited the WWII era and Call of Duty: The Vanguard aims to blend an iconic setting with modern systems.
Call of Duty: The Vanguard uses a loading system similar to what players have seen in Modern war and Black Ops: Cold War. Custom loadouts for multiplayer and zombie modes unlock at level four. The blog post gives a detailed overview of weapons, perks, equipment, and some tips for getting started.
Players have access to the standard weapon loadout consisting of a primary weapon, secondary weapon, gear, perks, field upgrades, and kill streaks / artifacts. Killstreaks are applicable in Multiplayer while Artifacts come into play in the avant-garde Zombie mode. The equipment consists of lethal and tactical devices like cluster grenades and stims. Field upgrades include items like a box of supplies to reload ammo and a jammer gear that scrambles the mini-map of nearby enemies. Of course, players will also have access to blueprints for particular weapon setups like in previous titles.
Those who know the loading system in Call of Duty should feel comfortable in Avant-garde also. Not much, if anything, outside of weapons has changed. But when a game has such a comprehensive and intuitive system like this, there’s no real need to reinvent the wheel. For those who have experience with any of the last three entries in the series, one should have no problem setting up a preferred loadout and modifying it for the available weapons. For those new to the series, the tips provided along with the preset loadouts provide a solid foundation to get started.
It’s good to see a rotation in the types of weapons used throughout the franchise. It’s a way to keep things relatively cool with each annual outing. Today’s weapons in Modern war to a return to the 80s in Black Ops: Cold War to the classics of an emblematic era in Avant-garde, each offers a fairly unique experience to the player. Call of Duty: The Vanguard doesn’t seem to change the formula drastically, but like previous entries, continues to refine it.
While consistency is good for an annual deductible like Call of Duty, one has to wonder when this weapons loading system will become obsolete. Some may argue that it won’t and each additional release only refines and complements the experience. And knowing what to expect before investing always makes the buying decision a lot easier. Love it or hate it, this weapon modification system has been around for at least a year.
The vanguard of the call of duty releases November 5, 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
