Call of Duty: Vanguard has some great Killstreaks to obtain for those good enough to be rewarded for their effort. Let’s take a look at all of the Killstreaks that players will be earning.
The Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta was officially extended to September 22, allowing those on all consoles to get more time with the Beta and ultimately express their opinion and give feedback to the developers.
With that being said, many players were happy with the return of killstreaks, giving players that classic Call of Duty Multiplayer feel to the game.
Let’s take a look at all of the killstreaks currently available in Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Although some players weren’t too happy with certain Field Upgrades, overall, the feedback for the Vanguard killstreaks has been primarily positive.
A portion of CoD players seem to feel that Vanguard killstreaks mean players will play less of the objective. However, many others love that Killstreaks reward those with enough skill to take enemies down without dying, rather than getting killstreaks from simply capturing a flag.
In theory, Vanguard killstreaks will be less prevalent than scorestreaks, as scorestreaks were more common due to the ease of playing the objective rather than going on a meaningful killstreak.
With that being said, let’s take a look at all the Vanguard killstreaks, as well as what it will take to get them.
List of Call of Duty: Vanguard killstreaks
- Intel – 3 Kills
- A personal radar for the player, allowing them to see enemies closeby.
- Care Package – 4 Kills
- A classic, randomly drops a Killstreak into the map.
- Spy Plane – 4 Kills
- Otherwise known as a UAV, allow you and your team to see enemy red dots on the mini-map.
- Counter Spy Plane – 4 Kills
- This will prevent the enemy team from using their mini-map
- Glide Bomb – 5 Kills
- A remote controlled bomb that players can drop on unsuspecting enemies.
- Deathmachine – 5 Kills
- A huge minigun that does serious damage.
- Mortar Barrage – 5 Kills
- Set bombs to drop on a marked location.
- Warmachine – 7 Kills
- An explosive grenade launcher.
- Flamenaut – 9 Kills
- Similar to a Juggernaut, but this time with a Flamethrower.
- Attack Dogs – 10 Kills
- Release dogs into the map to terrorize and rip the enemy to shreds for a period of time.
- V2 Rocket – 25 Kills
- Not available for selection, but awarded to anyone who can achieve a 25 killstreak.
Players can select three Vanguard killstreaks before a match and will need to level up to unlock them all.
Often players will select killstreaks that they will not obtain every game, so depending on your playstyle, make sure you are choosing Vanguard killstreaks you will be able to earn consistently unless you’re going for a high killstreak, of course.

First Perk in CoD: Vanguard Zombies revealed
A Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies screenshot has confirmed one of the Perks that will be in the game and the design they’re going for.
The official reveal of CoD: Vanguard’s Zombies mode has shown off many elements that players can expect, including a first look at one of the Perks – Stamin-Up.
The fun part of pre-game hype for CoD Zombies is wondering what new enemies we’ll see, the new Wonder Weapons, abilities, and of course – Perks.
Treyarch’s October 14 reveal of Der Anfang showed off a litany of terrifying new Zombies, a darker approach to the Zombies world, and even managed to sneak in a look at one of the Perks and its dispenser.
When you think of Call of Duty Zombies Perks, you think of Juggernog, Speed Cola, Quick Revive, and Double Tap Root Beer. They are the original four Perks that introduced the concept to Zombies.
Since then, there have been many Perks that have had reoccurring roles in subsequent games, and one of these is the legendary Stamin-Up Perk.
It’s gone on to become one of the most important and critical Perks for long runs as the ability to sprinter faster and for longer is vital to escaping perilous situations.
Here is a sneaky glimpse of it in one of the official screenshots.
The striking thing about the Perk is the absence of any discernible vending machines to purchase a can or bottle from.
It seems very much like a magical drink fountain that players will be able to gulp down a few mouthfuls of secret formula to get their sprint on.
As we get closer to Call of Duty: Vanguard’s release, more screenshots, and footage will be sure to uncover another Perk or two.

CoD Zombies players furious over no round-based Vanguard map at launch
Zombies fans have voiced their displeasure about Vanguard’s lack of a round-based Zombies map at the game’s launch.
Despite Der Anfang shaping up to be one of the most intense and unique Zombies experiences ever, fans are unhappy that Vanguard will feature no round-based map at launch.
The Call of Duty Zombies experience is continuing as Treyarch develops the Dark Aether story in Vanguard. However, the debut map – Der Anfang – isn’t a traditional round-based map, and potential players aren’t happy.
Every CoD game that has had Zombies has always launched with round-based Zombies content, and this will mark the first time that a Call of Duty game hasn’t done this.
Black Ops Cold War’s starting map – Die Maschine – was the perfect example of classic CoD, start in a confined space, slowly accumulate points from early rounds, buy doors, Perks, eventually Pack-A-Punch, and you’re off.
Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Zombies portion of the game was revealed on October 14 with a tasty reveal trailer. But once Treyarch began to filter information through about Der Anfang, players became concerned.
“Why do they think we don’t want round based maps?” was the question posed by Reddit user Dreww_115, in response to Der Anfang not being a classic-style map.
They said: “With the vanguard map seemingly being like outbreak 2.0 and not a round based map I am left wondering why the developers think we don’t want a classic round based map.”
The question was counter-pointed by an articulate response pointing out the potential developing schedule of Treyarch: “You have misunderstood everything mate. It’s not a matter of what we want but a matter of what they can deliver with the hell of a schedule they have.”
He continued: “Activision made Treyarch release Cold War one year earlier and also made them make this year’s zombies mode too. They literally didn’t have the time to release a round-based map for launch.
This comment generated nearly 300 upvotes and it’s clear that this response has had some impact on players concerned for the future of Zombies.
It’s highly unlikely that Treyarch will ignore purely round-based Zombies content, and given that Vanguard will probably have a full-year cycle, we’d expect to see several of them.

CoD: Vanguard Zombies will feature fan-favorite World at War Zombies map
Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies’ latest reveal trailer may have hinted at a fan-favorite World at War map returning to the mode.
The latest news on Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies revealed some exciting developments for a fan-favorite World at War map potentially returning.
The trailer didn’t just reveal information and details about the story direction, it also hinted at a fan-favorite map returning.
Vanguard Zombies will launch with a new mode called “Der Anfang,” which is said to combine the classic round-based format with features seen in Black Ops Cold War‘s Zombies and some new innovative mechanics that haven’t been seen before in Zombies.
As we know, the mode will be created by Treyarch, but in the Vanguard/Modern Warfare engine, and it will carry on the Dark Aether storyline introduced in Cold War.
During the trailer, it’s clear that players will be going through rifts and traveling across various maps to complete challenges.
One of the maps the players in the trailer travel to is a classic from World at War, Shi No Numa.
In Der Anfang, not only will players be battling hoards of Zombies in areas exclusive to Vanguard, but also the swamps of Shi No Numa, and who knows, maybe even more classic Zombies maps.
Shi No Numa is a great Zombies map to bring back into the Zombies mode for Call of Duty, allowing those new players to experience a classic map and giving those dedicated fans a nostalgia trip.
This particular map was one of the first that helped put Call of Duty Zombies on the map and become the global success it has been over the years, with Vanguard taking the franchise back to World War II and Treyarch leading the development of the game’s Zombies mode. Shi No Numa is a perfect choice for incorporating classic areas into the franchise’s latest game.
