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.
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.
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 seen 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 Vanguard, 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 Warfare’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.

Battlefield 2042 players desperate to see classic features return
Battlefield 2042 players are calling for the return of some classic features from the franchise’s previous Multiplayer modes.
Battlefield 2042 is finally here, and while some players have been enjoying the Multiplayer mode, some feel it needs to bring some classic features back.
New mechanics such as the Plus system have been welcomed, but some players feel some classic features need to return.
Battlefield 2042 scoreboard
Reddit user At0m11c wants one simple feature to return from previous Battlefield games. In their recent post, they call for the devs to “Bring back the traditional Scoreboard!”
The scoreboard is an important part of Multiplayer FPS games, especially Battlefield. In the past, Battlefield’s scoreboard has provided information such as all the players on the teams and their performance.
The new scoreboard in Battlefield 2042 gives players much less information. Although it does give you a clear breakdown of your own performance, there isn’t much on the whole lobby.
The player believes the devs should bring the Battlefield 4 scoreboard back, calling it “a perfect scoreboard.” They aren’t the only one who feels this way either, as many are disappointed with the change: “Is that seriously not in the game? Very disappointing.”
Battlefield 2042 medic indicator
Further, a Reddit user by the name of jamesswazz has pointed out yet another classic feature the players would like to return in Battlefield 2042. Much like the scoreboard issue, players aren’t happy that there is less information on nearby medics.
Back in previous iterations, players could see how close a medic was to them when they were down. This stopped players from quickly respawning and letting themselves bleed out. The Reddit user has played the medic role in the previous Battlefield games, and always enjoyed “running around reviving everyone.”
Having said that, the player feels that “the opportunities to revive in 2042 are non-existent,” mostly due to the lack of a medic indicator.
Players are confused as to how this feature didn’t make the final game. The user feels DICE needs to add it in order to save the gameplay: “This needs to change for the sake of the game.”
We’ll have to wait and see whether or not DICE decides to return these classic features. One thing to note is that the game is currently very new and will likely go through various updates.

Best DP27 loadout for CoD: Vanguard
The Vanguard DP27 is one of the best LMGs in the game. Try these attachments and perks to make the best DP27 Loadout.
Vanguard’s DP27 can be a lethal weapon of choice for players who like an LMG. Here are the best attachments and perks you can use for the Vanguard DP27.
The Vanguard DP27 is a strong LMG option with great range and power, especially when combined with the following attachments and perks.
Best Vanguard DP27 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 604MM
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: ZAC S2M
- Underbarrel: Mark IV Skeletal
- Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
- Kit: Fully Loaded
The Mercury Silencer gives the DP27 some slight recoil control. This is definitely needed as the fire rate is surprisingly fast for an LMG. The Slate Reflector optic will also help you stay on target, especially as the iron sights aren’t the best.
Next, the ZAC S2M, Fabric Grip, and Mark IV Skeletal will all improve the Vanguard DP27’s ADS and sprint to fire speed. These attachments are vital, as the weapon is an LMG, so these stats definitely need boosting.
The Lengthened Ammo Type and Kovalevskaya 604MM barrel will increase the DP27’s bullet velocity. This allows the weapon’s bullets to hit the target faster.
Sleight of Hand is a must with this weapon, as you will find yourself reloading quite a lot thanks to the fast fire rate. Further, Fully Loaded will mean you spawn with full ammo, so you won’t have to worry about running out when on a killstreak.
Lastly, the 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans will give you even more ammo in a clip. This is great as you will be able to take out multiple enemies without even having to reload.
Best Perks to use with the DP27
- Perk 1: Ghost
- Perk 2: Piercing Vision
- Perk 3: Lightweight
Ghost is a classic Call of Duty perk, and its benefits are obvious. Ghost will make you undetectable by Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics while moving. It will also reduce the effectiveness of Local Informants, which is one of the strongest Killstreaks in the game.
The next Perk is Piercing vision, which is great for LMGs in general. As you will likely be spraying through objects a lot with the DP27, this perk will highlight enemies you’ve suppressed for a short time. This is great for finishing kills through walls and smoke.
Lastly, Lightweight will counter the reduced movement speed caused by the LMG. This will keep you fast on your feet, allowing you to reposition effectively.
How to unlock the DP27 in Vanguard
In order to unlock the DP27, players must reach Level 18 in Vanguard’s Multiplayer.
Luckily this isn’t too high of a level, but some of the attachments and perks in the loadout are. If you want to level up fast, check out our guide.
