Sledgehammer Games will introduce a new Multiplayer game mode in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta that takes inspiration from a fan favorite.

Call of Duty fans are excited for Vanguard’s release on November 5, especially as PlayStation owners got a taste of gameplay in the recent Alpha. Although the gameplay did spark players to ask for some changes, players seemed satisfied overall.

With that being said, the Open Beta will be available for other platforms also to experience the game, including a brand new game mode for Multiplayer called “Patrol.”

Off the back of feedback from the Alpha, Sledgehammer Games confirmed some changes coming in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta. As well as various changes to visibility, spawns, and audio, the Open Beta will also feature some new content.

Although the Alpha introduced players to a new mode, Champion Hill, the developers aren’t done there, as the Open Beta will also introduce another mode not seen before by players.

In Sledgehammer’s latest blog, they confirmed that the Open Beta will work differently from the Alpha and will actually focus more on the classic Multiplayer modes players are more familiar with.

As well as Champion Hill, players will also be able to dive into Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Search and Destroy. Although it won’t be available on the launch of the Beta, the developers will also introduce a new game mode called “Patrol.”

What is Patrol?

Patrol will work similarly to fan-favorite mode Hardpoint, where players have to capture a position and remain within the area to earn points for the team.

The difference is that in Patrol, the Hardpoint position will move around the map, creating new gameplay opportunities and an exciting twist to an already loved game mode.

Here’s the official description from Sledgehammer:

“Patrol. Based on Hardpoint, this objective-based mode features a scoring zone in near-constant motion; if Operators want to rack up points for their team, they should keep up and move around the map within this Patrol point.”

We’ll have to wait until September 11 for this mode to drop in the Open Beta, so be sure to get some experience in the other modes before you drop into Patrol.

Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 will bring a new Melee Weapon known as the Sawtooth, and here’s everything you need to know about unlocking it in both games.

Vanguard Season 1 is almost here, and it features a plethora of new content, like a new Warzone map, the Season 1 Battle Pass, and some cool new weapons for players to try out.

One of these new additions is the Sawtooth Melee Weapon which you will be able to get your hands on in the Vanguard and Warzone integration. In case you’re wondering how to unlock it, this guide has you covered.

Here’s how to get the Sawtooth in Vanguard and Warzone Season 1.

How to unlock the Sawtooth Melee Weapon in Warzone & Vanguard

You can unlock the Sawtooth Melee Weapon in Vanguard and Warzone by reaching Tier 37 in the Season 1 Battle Pass. This is fairly simple and there are two ways for you to get this done.

The first method is the most straightforward and it involves you playing through multiple matches as you gradually progress through the Battle Pass. You can check out our guide on how to level up fast in Vanguard.

Alternatively, you can pay for a Tier-Skip bundle on day one to immediately progress through the first 20 Tiers of the Battle Pass. This will speed up the process and you’ll be able to get the Sawtooth much quicker.

The Sawtooth is the first Melee Weapon in the Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass. Sewn with shark’s teeth along the club’s perimeter, the Sawtooth is capable of slicing up foes with great efficiency.

Season 1 will also bring other fun additions like new maps, perks, and Zombies content. You can check out all of these changes in the full Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 1 patch notes.

Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 has introduced the new Cooper Carbine, an Assault Rifle that excels in close-range combat. Here’s how you can unlock this weapon.

Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 brings a ton of new content for both games, with new weapons, multiplayer maps, operators, and the highly-anticipated Pacific Caldera battle royale map.

Season 1 will introduce five new weapons in total, with two guns and two melee weapons dropping straight away. Alongside the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, players will also get their hands on the Cooper Carbine Assault Rifle.

While ARs usually work best at long range, the Cooper Carbine excels in close-quarters combat. Here’s how you can unlock the gun in Vanguard & Warzone Season 1.

How to unlock Cooper Carbine Assault Rifle

Getting your hands on this assault rifle is extremely easy, as all you need to do is reach Tier 15 of the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass to unlock the Cooper Carbine.

That means you don’t need to complete any specific challenges, and can just play matches in either game to earn XP and level up your Battle Pass.

If you don’t want to wait, you can purchase the Premium Battle Pass and receive 20 Tiers immediately, but you can still choose not to and grab the Cooper Carbine for free.

As soon as you hit Tier 15 of the Battle Pass, the Cooper Carbine will immediately be added to your inventory. You’ll then be able to create loadouts with it in both Vanguard and Warzone.

The Cooper Carbine is a very interesting weapon. Despite being classed as an Assault Rifle, it functions best at short range, meaning it feels more like an SMG than anything else.

Published

Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 introduces the brand-new Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle. Here’s how you can unlock this powerful weapon in both games.

The beginning of Vanguard Season 1 brings a host of new content for both it and Warzone, new operators, multiplayer maps, weapons, and the Pacific Caldera map for the series’ popular battle royale.

Season 1 will introduce five new weapons into the mix for Call of Duty fans, with everything from melee weapons to assault rifles. The most interesting addition is the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, which is set to be the most powerful sniper in the game.

You won’t want to miss out on your chance to get your hands on this weapon, so we’ve got everything you need to unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle in Vanguard & Warzone Season 1.

How to unlock Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle

The good news is that getting your hands on this powerful weapon is very straightforward, and won’t require you to complete any frustrating challenges.

To unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, all you need to do is reach Tier 31 in the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass.

That means you can earn the right to wield the weapon just by playing games. If grinding for the weapon doesn’t sound like your thing, you can choose to purchase premium skips to avoid playing matches and unlock the Gorenko straight away.

As soon as you hit Tier 31, the sniper rifle will be immediately added to your arsenal, and you’ll be able to add it to any loadout in Warzone or Vanguard.

While the Gorenko does have a slow fire rate and strong recoil, its damage is the highest in its category, which means it could become a replacement for the always-popular Kar98k with the right attachments.

Before jumping into the major update, check out everything that’s coming in Vanguard’s Season 1 patch notes, or take a look at the best Warzone sniper rifles to see where this weapon will fit.
