A reliable leaker has claimed that a classic Modern Warfare 2 will be returning in Call of Duty: 2021 AKA Vanguard.

A big rumor surrounding CoD 2021’s multiplayer has dropped with renowned leaker TheMW2Ghost claiming that Terminal is set to appear in the new Call of Duty: Vanguard title.

As we creep further into 2021, small details about the latest Call of Duty game continue to seep through the cracks. Rumored to be called Vanguard, the game is set to take place in World War 2, and will even boast a full WW2 Warzone map to boot.

News has filtered through recently that we will apparently see the return of the London Docks map from Call of Duty: WW2, and we’ll also get a reveal of the game soon. The latest gossip is another map returning from a previous CoD game, with Terminal set to return in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

It’s an unusual turn of events as Terminal is very much a current-day Call of Duty map associated with the Modern Warfare games in the franchise.

But ModernWarzone reported that TheMW2Ghost had informed them that this would be the case for CoD: Vanguard in 2021.

ModernWarzone does go on to say that whilst it is a bit strange to see Terminal get such a drastic makeover, anything is possible with CoD: “Take this with a grain of salt, but Ghost has been accurate with some of his map leaks in the past pre-release. Obviously, the era doesn’t match the Terminal we know, but CoD can honestly do whatever they want.”

TheMW2Ghost does claim to be an “EX Activision Ambassador” in their Twitter bio, and they’ve been right about Call of Duty leaks in the past.

We’d listen to the advice of ModernWarzone and approach this information with caution, but don’t be surprised to see it end up in the game.

CoD Vanguard Zombies marketing hints at London map

Some new, interesting Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies marketing has hinted at a possible London map coming in the future.

A London-based Zombies map could be in the pipeline for Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Zombies game mode if some new marketing is anything to go by.

Vanguard Zombies could be in for a British invasion if the newest CoD marketing hint is to be taken very literally.

Whereas Call of Duty’s online multiplayer is generally the focus of each CoD title, Zombies is usually not too far behind as the loyal fanbase continues to yearn for more Zombies maps and innovations – such as Outbreak.

Activision understands this, so as well as the already-confirmed Der Anfang map, some new Vanguard physical marketing placements could already be suggesting what the next map’s location is going to be.

Currently situated in Brick Lane East London is a cool piece of marketing to advertise the upcoming Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Posted by RobMCDuk in the COD Zombies subreddit, some pictures of the interesting promotion are available.

It inevitably didn’t take long for fans to start speculating on the possibility of a new London-based Zombies map.

surfstefan said: “What if we’re finally getting a London map after all these years? That would be very funny.” Whereas another user also added: “Probably a zombified London docks for the new game mode.”

This could be a distinct possibility as it was rumored several months ago that WW2’s London Docks map would be making a return, so there’s every chance it makes a reappearance with an undead rebrand.

It should also be pointed out, however, that Sledgehammer Games have just opened a new studio in Guildford, not far from London, so it could just be a nod to that.

In any event, this is a fun bit of appreciation for Zombies to be given its own marketing like this, and we shall have to wait and see if any London-based content will happen.

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.
