CoD fans usually have passionate opinions when it comes to debating the franchise’s best game, but the same could be said when the community was asked to reveal the worst Call of Duty game ever.
As Vanguard’s cycle slowly comes to a close with Season 5 on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to indulge in some nostalgia and look back through the years of the Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty has been around for so long that most players will have significantly different answers when asked what their favorite or least favorite CoD game is.
While the replies revealed that most players view Black Ops 2 or Black Ops 3 as the best Call of Duty game ever made, the same cannot be said for their opinion of the franchise’s worst game.
The replies for the “Worst Call of Duty” section were varied but a trend did begin to appear after a couple thousand responses. It seems most players opted for Vanguard as the worst game the franchise has put forth.
There’s no doubt that some recency bias likely impacted these results, but Vanguard has been one of the most hated Call of Duty games ever made. Despite being fresh in peoples’ minds, the game has come under fire for being a mess since it was released.

Most Recent Call of Duty: MW 2019
Favorite Call of Duty: Black ops 3
Worst Call of Duty: Vanguard
Vanguard seemed to be the most popular answer, but it failed to grasp a majority vote as players consistently spread their answers between a few titles. 2019’s Modern Warfare was another popular choice.
The game is notably polarizing as most either loved it or hated it. Some players sunk countless hours into the game as its multiplayer kept CoD fans busy throughout the pandemic. Meanwhile, competitive players and content creators shared a disdain for the game’s core mechanics.

Worst Call of Duty: MW2019
Aside from Modern Warfare 2019, and Vanguard, Call of Duty: Ghosts, WWII, and Infinite Warfare were also quite popular responses. With WWII and Vanguard being two boots-on-the-ground WWII-era CoD games, it seems players don’t take kindly to this style and setting.
Only time will tell if the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 2 will have a strong enough impact on players to eventually become a valid answer for this CoD questionnaire. Of course, Infinity Ward will be hoping it improves on its predecessor and makes its way to the “Best” side of the debate.
