New CoD: Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map teased by PlayStation

A new Call of Duty: Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map has been teased by PlayStation through a brand new Operator trailer.

PlayStation’s brand new trailer shows off a never-before-seen Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map, getting the fans excited for the game’s official release.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is just around the corner, releasing officially on November 5. With that being said, we’ve already seen the STG44 and M1 Garand in Warzone, but what other weapons will the game have.

After revealing two new Operators from the game, the brand new trailer for Padmavati Balan presents a brand new weapon and map.

The sneak peek happens right at the end of the trailer, where Padmavati is taking people out with a brand new Shotgun. The name of the weapon is currently unknown, but it seems to be very similar to the classic Trench Gun from World at War.

This would make sense considering the close relationship Vanguard is shaping up to have with the classic Call of Duty, as there have even been rumors suggesting some of World at War’s Multiplayer maps will indeed to returning.

The Shotgun looks like it could pack-a-punch as well (no pun intended for the game’s Zombies mode), as it takes enemies out with ease in the trailer.

Further, the small sneak peek also showed off a brand new Multiplayer map that players also haven’t seen before.

This map looks like it could be based in Egypt, or somewhere with desert terrain and hot weather.

The Operator is shown taking enemies out while moving through a building, then busting through a window and completing an execution on an enemy while out in the open.

Once again, we don’t have any other information on this new map or weapon apart from speculation, but as more is released we will keep you updated, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!

Two new Call of Duty: Vanguard Operators officially revealed

The most recent news for CoD: Vanguard has revealed two new Operators that will be available in the newest installment of the franchise.

Two new Call of Duty: Vanguard Operators have officially been revealed ahead of the game’s release, allowing players to get to know the characters they will be playing in the Multiplayer mode.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is almost among us, and now we know much more about the Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies mode, it’s about time they revealed some new Operators.

The latest news revealed two new Operators players will be using in Multiplayer, releasing a blog containing some information on them, as well as quick videos showcasing their characters.

Arthur Kinglsey Operator

The new Operators were revealed on a new PlayStation blog, which makes sense considering Call of Duty will be continuing their exclusivity relationship with PlayStation through Vanguard.

The blog showcased four Operators, two of which we have previously seen and will also be available in the Vanguard Campaign: Arthur Kingsley and Polina Petrova.

For those that didn’t know, you can actually get Arthur Kingsley in Warzone right now, check out our article on how to do so.

The other two are new Operators that haven’t yet been explored, and here are all the details about them.

Daniel Take Yatsu

The first new Call of Duty: Vanguard operator revealed by PlayStation was Daniel Take Yatsu who is an expert marksman that must use his skills to protect his fellow brothers in arms while dealing with the fact that his family is forced into an internment camp in the United States.

You can find the official description of Daniel Take Yatsu below:

“In the movies, there’s often the classic archetype of the cold and unfeeling sniper, calmly dispatching targets one by one.

Daniel’s no slouch as a sniper, but we wanted to depict him as a protector who uses his marksmanship to support his fellow soldiers. His story is also deeply rooted in one of the most shameful chapters of American history: the internment of Japanese citizens in US concentration camps during WWII.

Daniel’s entire world was torn apart when his family was sent to the camps, and like many Japanese Americans, he was drafted into the army to protect a nation who did not consider him an equal citizen. 

Daniel’s feelings about the war and his nation are deeply ambivalent, but he still fights to protect his fellow soldiers and for the nation he believes America could still be one day.”

Padmavati Balan

Vanguard’s second new Operator revealed on October 25 is Padmavati who is from India and has had to deal with conflict her entire life with her fight against the Nazis being her latest in Call of Duty: Vanguard where she uses her leadership and battle-hardened skills to help her comrades secure victory.

You can find her official description below:

“Padmavati is a woman who lost her homeland twice: once to colonialists and then to fascists. Her story is that of a woman whose hope and opportunity for a normal life abruptly vanished when unceasing conflict became a fact of her existence. 

Her character is defined by this duality between fighter and peaceful civilian: Padmavati is a fierce soldier adept at jungle warfare, but also a battle-weary nurse who loves to perform poetry and music. 

Because she understands the true costs of spilled blood, she eschews a romantic view of warfare, but won’t hesitate to demonstrate courage and leadership on the battlefield when called. She dreams of an India whose fate is determined by the will of its own people and is convinced that they will one day prevail.”

There is no doubt that Daniel Take Yatsu and Padmavati Balan will be two Operators who plenty of players choose to step into the shoes of when they are experiencing the action of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Perhaps you’ll find yourself connected to one of these and who knows, they could end up being the Operator you decide to use in Multiplayer and Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone

New Warzone RPD stealth buff makes LMG insanely strong

The Warzone community has recently been discussing what appears to be a stealth buff for the RPD that makes the LMG even better.



jgod warzone rpd

The RPD appears to have gotten a stealth buff that supposedly makes the LMG much stronger in Warzone Season 6 than before.

Warzone Season 6 has seen many weapons come to the forefront, with the current meta including weapons like the Cold War AK-47 and the Bullfrog.

Having said that, some players have picked up on a stealth buff for the RPD‘s recoil that was introduced in Season 6, potentially making it insanely strong.

Before this stealth buff, the RPD’s recoil acted very similar to the Cold War MP5, which meant that the recoil would stabilize and no longer continue going vertically, making it fairly easy to control after firing a certain number of shots.

Players realized that this had changed for the RPD in Season 6, with some even claiming that the stealth change made the weapon even easier to control, becoming one of the best weapons to use.

In his most recent video, JGOD investigated this stealth buff for the RPD, testing out just how good it is now after the recoil change.

The RPD’s recoil now continues to go vertically at a consistent pace even after firing consecutive bullets, which JGOD says “actually makes the weapon easier to control, surprising.”

This is because weapons with consistent recoil patterns are generally easier to control compared to weapons with more sporadic patterns.

The RPD’s new recoil means that players don’t need to adjust their analog or mouse once they have the recoil pattern down, as it remains the same until the mag finishes.

This is ultimately the main reason players are finding success with this weapon after the change and calling it meta in Season 6.

However, according to the stats by JGOD, the RPD’s damage numbers are still not as great as some of the other Warzone Season 6 meta weapons, as its TTK falls below other options.

Further, JGOD personally feels as if the “rate of fire” is what prevents the RPD from being meta in Season 6.

Overall the RPD is still a good LMG in Warzone Season 6, but you may be better off using the FiNN or the RAAL if you’re looking for a better LMG option.
