M1 Garand in Call of Duty Warzone

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s M1 Garand has arrived early in Warzone Season 6, offering two Blueprints for players to experiment with. The attachments can’t be changed, but we’ve got the best M1 Garand Blueprint you can use in your loadout.

Warzone players were confused when Vanguard’s M1 Garand and STG44 appeared in Warzone at the start of Season 6, but they became unlockable in a Battle Pass update on October 12.

Although you can bring these M1 Garand and STG44 Blueprints into Warzone, you can’t customize them in any way. The M1 Garand Blueprints are well worth using, so we’ve picked the best Blueprint you should bring to Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone M1 Garand Blueprint

The best Blueprint you can run with Warzone’s M1 Garand is the Heirloom. Although it has high visual recoil, the real recoil is almost non-existent, meaning it can melt through enemies at medium range.

The other Vanguard Blueprint, the White Obsidian, is also an extremely powerful choice and there isn’t much separating the two weapons.

Warzone M1 Garand Heirloom Blueprint attachments

  • Muzzle: Mk. 2 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Cooper 25″ Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: Extended Mags
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Reargrip
  • Perk 1: Acquisition Perk 1

What sets the Heirloom Blueprint apart from the earlier White Obsidian is that it uses up more attachment slots. Vanguard weapons can equip ten attachments, and the Heirloom takes advantage of eight of them.

There’s no way of knowing exactly what each attachment does yet, but combined, this makes for a dominant medium-range loadout. The only issue is the visual recoil, which makes tracking targets at long-range difficult.

And the Extended Mags are especially useful when you’re caught at close range and a reload could mean certain death.

Best Perks to use with the M1 Garand in Warzone

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

It’s hard to go wrong with E.O.D in the Perk 1 slot, as it will allow you to survive a barrage of explosives.

Ghost is the obvious choice for Perk 2, as it’s arguably the most powerful Perk in the game, keeping you hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

And for the final Perk, Combat Scout will both highlight and live ping your target. This will be especially useful for keeping track of your target when dealing with the high visual recoil.

How to unlock the M1 Garand in Warzone Season 6

The M1 Garand Blueprints can be unlocked for free in the Season 6 Battle Pass, with the White Obsidian unlocked at Tier 34 and the Heirloom unlocked at Tier 72.

And because they’re free, you simply need to play the game enough to reach the Tiers, and then they’ll be available for you in both Warzone and Vanguard when it releases.

Best alternatives to the M1 Garand in Warzone Season 6

The M1 Garand will suit you well for medium-range fights, and there are several other weapons that fit this category. Until you unlock the Garand, you could use Cold War’s DMR 14 to warm up your trigger finger and get used to semi-automatic rifles. Or, you could use the FARA 83 which is still a solid, low-recoil weapon.


Once Vanguard integrates with Warzone later in the year, you’ll be able to customize the M1 Garand and STG44 to your liking on the brand-new Pacific-themed map.

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.

Published

on

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 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 seeing 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 Vangaurd, 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 Warafre’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.

JGOD reveals Vanguard weapons you need to rank up before Warzone Pacific Caldera

Call of Duty expert JGOD has revealed the 10 weapons he think will make up Warzone’s meta when Pacific Caldera releases.

Published

on

Warzone’s new Pacific Caldera map will release in a matter of days, and players are already thinking about a possible weapon meta. Call of Duty expert JGOD has been doing the same thing and picked out 10 weapons players should rank up before December 8.

Vanguard has now been out for almost a month, and players have been unlocking and ranking up weapons ever since. We already know that Vanguard’s weapons will be added to Warzone, meaning players can use them on the new Pacific Caldera map.

Warzone’s meta regularly changes, and we expect Vanguard Season 1 to bring an enormous change. Now, CoD expert JGOD has picked out 10 guns he thinks players should rank up before the update.

The YouTuber has used a few key characteristics to come up with this list: fire rate, ease of use, recoil, and magazine capacity to determine damage-per-mag. While some weapons may have a great time-to-kill, they may fall short in one of the sections above.

JGOD mostly picked out SMGs as weapons to level up, as their fast rate of fire makes them extremely viable. Of course, some assault rifles also made the list, while he also picked out some LMGs to use too.

JGOD’s 10 Vanguard weapons to level up for Warzone

The 10 Vanguard weapons you need to level up are:

  • Automaton
  • Volk
  • PPSH-41
  • Sten
  • M1928 Tommy
  • Type 100
  • MG42
  • DP27
  • Type 11
  • G-43
  • 1911
  • Machine Pistol

In terms of weapons that JGOD would prioritize, the Automaton seems like a good shout to become a meta weapon, as it has a high rate of fire, low recoil, and the biggest magazine size in its class.

Of course, we’ve seen in the past that guns that do well in multiplayer don’t necessarily perform in Warzone, so be prepared to see a shock weapon dominate the meta.


In the meantime, check out our best Vanguard guns ranked list to make sure you’re using the most powerful weapons in the game.

How to fix CoD: Vanguard Dev Error 5537

Vanguard players are frustrated with the Dev Error 5537 which is crashing the game, and here’s how you can fix this problem.

Published

on

Dev Error 5537 is a particularly frustrating glitch that is keeping Call of Duty: Vanguard players from enjoying the game, and here’s how you can get around this error code.

CoD: Vanguard brought plenty of fun new content after its release on November 5, but players have also reported a few problems such as overpowered killstreaks and teleporting Attack Dogs.

There is also an error code that many fans have encountered known as dev error 5537, which is crashing the game and frustrating the Vanguard community. However, there are a few ways to get around this problem.

How to fix CoD: Vanguard dev error 5537

CoD: Vanguard players encounter the dev error 5537 while changing their Operator’s appearance in the multiplayer menu. When this happens, the game crashes without saving the changes to the outfit.

It’s unclear why this happens and Sledgehammer Games have yet to implement an official fix for this glitch. The good news is that there are different methods you can use when trying to fix this error.

Verify the CoD: Vanguard game files

If you encounter this error in Call of Duty: Vanguard on PC, then the problem could be that one of the game files is corrupted. You can figure out if this is the case by verifying the game files.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Launch the Battle.net client
  2. Select Vanguard, and head to Options
  3. Click Scan and Repair
  4. Wait for the scan to finish

If the game files are corrupted then you can implement the fixes recommended by the scan, although this could happen automatically. Once that’s done, restart the game and see if the error remains.

Update the graphics driver

You might be seeing this error message because the Operator skins menu is too much for your system’s graphics driver. In order to get around this problem, you should try updating it and then playing again.

Here’s how to update the graphics driver:

  1. Download and install Driver Easy
  2. Run the software, and select Scan Now
  3. Wait for the scan to complete
  4. Install the crommended updates
  5. Restart CoD: Vanguard

Avoid changing your Vanguard Operator’s outfit

If all else fails, you can just avoid altering your Operator’s outfit appearance and wait for Sledgehammer Games to implement a proper fix for the problem in a future update patch.

This isn’t the most convenient option so hopefully, the other methods will have resolved the issue for you. The developers will need to look into Dev Error 5537 and come up with a proper solution.
