Beachhead posts FAQ for Clan Challenges; feature now live

Published

on

Beachhead has posted a FAQ on the new ‘Clan Challenges’ feature coming to ELITE real soon. This feature can be seen currently under ‘Compete’, but no challenges are posted yet.

This feature is a highly anticipated feature for many Clans, and appears to be going live soon. But according to some people, they see that the Clan Challenges section is already populated. As of now, I cannot see anything in the section.

Hit after the break for screenshots and the FAQ of Clan Challenges!

SOURCE: ATVI Support

1. What are Clan Challenges?
Clan Challenges are milestones for Clans with at least one Premium member based off of specified MW3 accolades or stats that can earn Clan XP rewards and badges for your Clan. Clan Challenges are split into two types: Daily and Weekly and must be enlisted in by your Free or Premium Clan Leader.

Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for Clan Challenges.  When the Clan Leader enlists in a Clan Challenge, only the clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will count.
2. How do I participate in Clan Challenges?
In order to participate in Clan Challenges, your Clan Leader will have to enlist your Clan on the Clan Challenges Details page, found in the Compete section.

Note: Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge.

3. Who is eligible to participate in Clan Challenges?
Free and Premium members are eligible to participate in Clan Challenges so long as the Clan has a minimum of one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment.  Only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example:  If a Clan Leader enlists at 9am PDT for a Clan Challenge that begins at 12pm PDT, only members who were already in the clan before 9am PDT will count.  If a member joins this clan at 10am PDT, they would not be counted.  However, this clan member would be eligible for subsequent Clan Challenges.
4. What are Daily Clan Challenges?
Daily Clan Challenges allow your Clan to earn Clan XP and badges by earning specific MW3 accolades.  Daily Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section.  Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Daily Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example, the Efficiency Daily Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Sharpshooter Accolades your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.

5. What are Weekly Clan Challenges?
Weekly Clan Challenges allow your clan a chance to earn Clan XP and badges for reaching cumulative MW3 milestones of total kills, assists or score. Weekly Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section.  Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Weekly Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example, the Rampage Weekly Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Kills your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.

6. Why aren’t certain members of my clan counting?
Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
7. Will my participation count if I join a Clan during a Clan Challenge?
No, you must be in a clan that includes at least one Premium member before the time of enlistment for your participation to count.
8. Can I see my performance during a Clan Challenge?
Your performance in a Clan Challenge will usually be updated at various intervals throughout its duration on the Clan Challenges Details Page.
9. How long does it take for Clan XP and Badges to be awarded?
Typically, Clan XP and Badging can take up to 48 hours to be awarded but in some cases may take longer.
10. Do I need to be in the same match as my fellow Clan Members to participate in Clan Challenges?
No, you can contribute to a Clan Challenge with or without being in the same match as your fellow Clan Members.
11. How do I know if my clan is enlisted for a Clan Challenge?
You can confirm that your Clan is enlisted by checking the Clan Challenge detail page.  Your clan will show up as “Enlisted” if enlisted or “Not Enlisted” if your Clan is not enlisted.
12. Can my Clan Leader enlist after a Clan Challenge has started?
No, your Clan Leader must enlist before a Clan Challenge starts.
13. Where can I see how my Clan performed in a Clan Challenge?
Following the end time of a Clan Challenge, you can see how your Clan performed by selecting the Clan Challenge badge in your Clan Showcase and on the Clan Challenges Details Page.

Clan Challenges Detail page
14. Where can I find my Clan Challenges awards?
You can find your Clan Challenges awards in your Clan Showcase on your Clan Details page.

Clan Challenges Detail page
15. Where can I find out the start and end times of a Clan Challenge?
You can find start and end times in the Clan Challenges Details page of the Program Guide.  Always remember to take frequent breaks when you participate in clan challenges.
16. What happens if you change how Clan Challenges work?
Like the other features of the Elite service, we will be regularly trying to improve and refine Clan Challenges. Check back with this FAQ from time to time.  This is one of the places where you’ll be able to find out about any significant changes that are made to Clan Challenges.

Vanguard leaks suggest Infected & other game modes coming soon

Vanguard dataminers have uncovered a variety of game modes in the files, with one of them being fan-favorite mode Infected.

modern warfare infected coming to vanguard

A list of unreleased Vanguard game modes has been leaked by a Call of Duty dataminer, suggesting modes like Infected could be returning to the franchise.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has been a great success for the franchise since its release, with players happy about the variety of maps, weapons, and game modes.

With Vanguard on the verge of its first season and integration with Warzone, dataminers have been uncovering details about the Multiplayer. The most recent leaks have uncovered a variety of game modes that players could be seen in the game soon.

For those that don’t know, Vanguard was created using the Modern Warfare (2019)’s engine. Many have enjoyed this aspect of Vanguard, especially as its integration with Warzone should be much smoother, as it also uses the same engine.

What dataminers have found is that a lot of Modern Warfare’s content is still within the game’s files.

This isn’t anything profound or official, but it does possibly mean that we could be seeing some of that content in Vanguard.

Vanguard Infected leaks

Call of Duty dataminer sebas4412 recently revealed some of this Modern Warfare content and actually managed to get it working within Vanguard. In a tweet made on November 29, they said “lol like almost every MW mode has functionality in Vanguard, just got infected working.”

It is interesting that they were able to get Infected working, as some of the other modes found like “Tanks” and “Skulls” were unplayable. Could this potentially mean we will be seeing Infected within Vanguard’s future?

As players will know, Black Ops Cold War also had the Infected mode, but this wasn’t released until a little while after its launch.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but we’re sure there will be new game modes coming to Vanguard in the future, and perhaps these leaks are a hint as to what we may see.

Battlefield 2042 players desperate to see classic features return

Battlefield 2042 players are calling for the return of some classic features from the franchise’s previous Multiplayer modes.

Battlefield 2042 player with tank

Battlefield 2042 is finally here, and while some players have been enjoying the Multiplayer mode, some feel it needs to bring some classic features back.

Battlefield 2042‘s Multiplayer is a great addition to the franchise. Despite complaints about the launch weapons, the Portal mode and depth of settings and options have been fantastic.

New mechanics such as the Plus system have been welcomed, but some players feel some classic features need to return.

Battlefield 2042 scoreboard

Reddit user At0m11c wants one simple feature to return from previous Battlefield games. In their recent post, they call for the devs to “Bring back the traditional Scoreboard!”

The scoreboard is an important part of Multiplayer FPS games, especially Battlefield. In the past, Battlefield’s scoreboard has provided information such as all the players on the teams and their performance.

The new scoreboard in Battlefield 2042 gives players much less information. Although it does give you a clear breakdown of your own performance, there isn’t much on the whole lobby.

The player believes the devs should bring the Battlefield 4 scoreboard back, calling it “a perfect scoreboard.” They aren’t the only one who feels this way either, as many are disappointed with the change: “Is that seriously not in the game? Very disappointing.”

Further, a Reddit user by the name of jamesswazz has pointed out yet another classic feature the players would like to return in Battlefield 2042. Much like the scoreboard issue, players aren’t happy that there is less information on nearby medics.

Back in previous iterations, players could see how close a medic was to them when they were down. This stopped players from quickly respawning and letting themselves bleed out. The Reddit user has played the medic role in the previous Battlefield games, and always enjoyed “running around reviving everyone.”

Having said that, the player feels that “the opportunities to revive in 2042 are non-existent,” mostly due to the lack of a medic indicator.

Players are confused as to how this feature didn’t make the final game. The user feels DICE needs to add it in order to save the gameplay: “This needs to change for the sake of the game.”

We’ll have to wait and see whether or not DICE decides to return these classic features. One thing to note is that the game is currently very new and will likely go through various updates.

Best DP27 loadout for CoD: Vanguard

The Vanguard DP27 is one of the best LMGs in the game. Try these attachments and perks to make the best DP27 Loadout.

Published

vanguard dp27 loadout

Vanguard’s DP27 can be a lethal weapon of choice for players who like an LMG. Here are the best attachments and perks you can use for the Vanguard DP27.

Vanguard has an abundance of weapons for players to choose from. Whether you like SMGs, Assault Rifles, or even the Riot Shield; Vanguard has an option for you.

The Vanguard DP27 is a strong LMG option with great range and power, especially when combined with the following attachments and perks.

Best Vanguard DP27 loadout attachments

vanguard dp27
  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 604MM
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: ZAC S2M
  • Underbarrel: Mark IV Skeletal
  • Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Mercury Silencer gives the DP27 some slight recoil control. This is definitely needed as the fire rate is surprisingly fast for an LMG. The Slate Reflector optic will also help you stay on target, especially as the iron sights aren’t the best.

Next, the ZAC S2M, Fabric Grip, and Mark IV Skeletal will all improve the Vanguard DP27’s ADS and sprint to fire speed. These attachments are vital, as the weapon is an LMG, so these stats definitely need boosting.

The Lengthened Ammo Type and Kovalevskaya 604MM barrel will increase the DP27’s bullet velocity. This allows the weapon’s bullets to hit the target faster.

Sleight of Hand is a must with this weapon, as you will find yourself reloading quite a lot thanks to the fast fire rate. Further, Fully Loaded will mean you spawn with full ammo, so you won’t have to worry about running out when on a killstreak.

Lastly, the 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans will give you even more ammo in a clip. This is great as you will be able to take out multiple enemies without even having to reload.

Best Perks to use with the DP27

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Piercing Vision
  • Perk 3: Lightweight

Ghost is a classic Call of Duty perk, and its benefits are obvious. Ghost will make you undetectable by Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics while moving. It will also reduce the effectiveness of Local Informants, which is one of the strongest Killstreaks in the game.

The next Perk is Piercing vision, which is great for LMGs in general. As you will likely be spraying through objects a lot with the DP27, this perk will highlight enemies you’ve suppressed for a short time. This is great for finishing kills through walls and smoke.

Lastly, Lightweight will counter the reduced movement speed caused by the LMG. This will keep you fast on your feet, allowing you to reposition effectively.

How to unlock the DP27 in Vanguard

In order to unlock the DP27, players must reach Level 18 in Vanguard’s Multiplayer.

Luckily this isn’t too high of a level, but some of the attachments and perks in the loadout are. If you want to level up fast, check out our guide.

Best alternatives to Vanguard’s DP27

The MG42 is another great LMG in Vanguard, but if you’re looking for something more close range, why not check out the M1928.
