CODE Timeless Pack in Vanguard

Vanguard has launched with a new CoD Endowment Pack, where proceeds go towards helping to place veterans in “high-quality jobs.” Here’s how to get the Timeless Pack and unlock unique Blueprints for the Type 99 and 1911 in Vanguard and Warzone.

Call of Duty often releases Bundles to support their Endowment Charity that helps to put US and UK veterans “into high-quality jobs,” where 100% of Activision’s profits go towards the charity.

Vanguard has finally launched, and players can buy the Timeless Pack to support veterans and rock some unique cosmetics in Vanguard and Warzone.

Here’s everything included in the CODE Timeless Pack, and how to get your hands on it.

How to get Vanguard CODE Timeless Pack

You can purchase the Call of Duty Endowment Timeless Pack in Vanguard’s Store tab, for $9.99 or £8.39.

Just launch Call of Duty: Vanguard and scroll across to the Store tab, and it will be the only Bundle on offer. Bear in mind this is purchased with your card directly, so you won’t be able to use any saved up CoD Points.

What’s in Vanguard CODE Timeless Pack?

The Call of Duty Endowment Pack comes with nine CODE-themed cosmetic items, including Type 99 and 1911 Blueprints, a Watch, Reticle, Charm, and more.

Here’s everything included in Vanguard’s Timeless Pack:

  • “Timeless Destroyer” Type 99 Blueprint
  • “Blast From the Past” 1911 Blueprint
  • “Passed Down” Epic Watch
  • “Get Cracking” Legendary Reticle
  • “Snap ’n Go” Legendary Charm
  • “Stick to Your Guns” Legendary Sticker
  • “Badge of Honor” Legendary Emblem
  • “On the Frontlines” Legendary Calling Card
  • “Trademark” Legendary Spray

All of these items will also be available in Warzone when it integrates with Vanguard in December, bringing the Caldera Pacific map and RICOCHET anti-cheat.

When is Ranked Play coming to Vanguard? Release date, Skill Divisions & Ratings, rewards, more

Vanguard’s Ranked Play mode is just weeks from launch, and we’ve got all news, including possible release date, ranks, and rewards.

Published

on

Ranked Play is officially back in Vanguard, with Sledgehammer Games confirming that the competitive playlist is on its way. Here’s everything we know about the mode, including the likely release date, Skill Divisions, and more.

Call of Duty has always had a large competitive community, with fans jumping into League Play to test their skills, and compete in matches just like those seen in the Call of Duty League.

While frustration has been rampant surrounding the esports side of the game, including the decision not to include a ranked playlist in Vanguard at launch, excitement for League Play is at an all-time high following January’s CDL Kickoff Classic tournament.

Thankfully, we already know for sure that League Play is on the way, and we’ve got all the details.

CoD: Vanguard Ranked Play release date

While we don’t have a definite release date for Vanguard’s ranked playlist, we do know League Play is definitely releasing in February 2022.

In a post on the official Call of Duty League website, General Manager Daniel Tsay confirmed that it would “roll out alongside new Call of Duty: Vanguard,” and said the team were “excited about the future of Ranked Play.”

In terms of exact dates, there’s a good chance that February 14th is a date to look out for, as that’s when Vanguard Season 2 begins.


CoD: Vanguard Ranked Play Skill Divisions and Ratings

In a tweet in October 2021, Treyarch confirmed that they had been working in partnership with the Call of Duty League to bring a “new level of Ranked Play” to the franchise, starting in 2022 with Vanguard.

Vanguard’s Ranked Play will include “competitive modes, Ranked Skill Divisions, and visible Skill Ratings,” which will allow players to see how they stack up against their friends and other players.

How this mode will be implemented is still yet to be confirmed, but we’ll be sure to update this post with any new information.

Vanguard Ranked Play Rewards

Players will also be able to earn various kinds of rewards for their efforts in Vanguard’s Ranked game mode. In Black Ops Cold War, players were able to earn special weapon charms based on their ladder placements and Skill Divisions.

How these will look in Vanguard remains unclear, but it’s likely that we will see a similar system implemented in the Sledgehammer title.


With Ranked Play just around the corner, make sure you’ve got the right settings with our best PC and audio settings guide.

Vanguard’s fastest killing guns: Lowest TTK weapons in Season 1

Here are the fastest killing weapons you can use in Call of Duty: Vanguard which boast the lowest time-to-kill.

Published

on

You’ll need to kill your enemies as fast as possible to win gunfights in Call of Duty: Vanguard, so we’re taking a look at the fastest killing weapons in Season 1.

Time-to-kill, or TTK, is king in Call of Duty. Killing your enemies as fast as possible is key to winning gunfights, so you’ll need the weapons with the lowest TTK possible.

Thanks to data compiled by YouTuber TheXclusiveAce and TrueGameData, we can see which Vanguard weapons have the fastest theoretical TTK in the game – helping you decide which weapons you need to kill your enemies as fast as possible.

Unsurprisingly, apart from one-shot Snipers and Shotguns, it’s the Assault Rifles and SMGs that lead the way in terms of TTK, so here’s the fastest killing gun in each of these categories.

AS44 – Lowest TTK Assault Rifle in Vanguard

AS44 stats

Rate of Fire: 923 RPMBullet velocity: 885 m/sBase TTK: 195 – 260 ms
Chest Damage (0-34.3m): 27Chest Damage (34.3m+): 20ADS Time: 263 ms

Vanguard’s AS44 has proved itself to be the fastest-killing Assault Rifle. Boasting an impressively fast fire rate, with its base version being capable of killing players in only 195 ms, which puts it 15 ms faster than a one-burst from the ITRA Burst Assault Rifle.

The only downside to the AS44 is its recoil, but there are very few weapons that are capable of outgunning it – especially when using the best AS44 loadout.


Welgun – Lowest TTK SMG in Vanguard

Welgun stats

Rate of Fire: 659.3 RPMBullet velocity: 353 m/sBase TTK: 182 – 273 ms
Chest Damage (0-15m): 36Chest Damage (15-20m): 31ADS Time: 245 ms

Season 1’s Welgun is the fastest killing SMG in Vanguard, being able to take down players in only 182 ms. This makes it the fastest killing automatic weapon in Vanguard, only being beaten out by Shotguns.

Using the best Welgun loadout will net you this rapid TTK, allowing you to outgun any weapon in the 0-15m range, where most close-range SMG fights will take place. But of course, it will still lose to a one-shot Shotgun at point-blank range.


Those are the two weapons we recommend picking up if you’re looking to take down your enemies as fast as possible. But, you can check out our ranking of every weapon in Vanguard, which takes into account every aspect of the gun.

Warzone leak reveals another Attack on Titan Operator skin coming soon

A new Warzone and Vanguard leak claims the Armored Titan from Attack on Titan could be added to the games soon.

Published

on

Attack on Titan fans could soon get their hands on another Operator skin from the anime, with leaks claiming the giant human-eating creatures could join Vanguard and Warzone soon.

Crossovers have become a huge part of gaming, with games like Fortnite linking up with blockbuster movies and sports leagues to give fans amazing in-game looks.

Call of Duty is the latest title to try their hand at collaborations, teaming up with popular anime Attack on Titan to drop the Tracer Pack bundle for the game.

The first AoT skin in Vanguard and Warzone wasn’t well-received, with players claiming it looked “embarrassing,” before reporting that the bundle itself was giving players the wrong Tracer rounds. Now, it looks like they’re going to try again with a new skin, according to leaked images on Twitter.

According to leaker Hydra9114, a second Attack on Titan skin is on the way, but we won’t be getting another member of the Survey Corps.

Instead, players will be able to look like the Armored Titan, a 15 meter tall Titan with hardened skin to protect himself, capable of tearing through buildings and Survey Corps members with ease. Luckily, we expect that the Armored Titan’s in-game skin won’t be 15 meters tall.

The tweet shows a four-second video of the Titan in a pre-game lobby, holding a weapon while looking extremely menacing.

As things stand, we don’t have an official release date for this skin, but considering how detailed the Armored Titan looks, we expect it isn’t far away.

It’s very possible that it appears in Vanguard and Warzone Season 2, which has been delayed to February 14, 2022.
