A new rumor suggests that Call of Duty 2021’s name will be ‘Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard, and Eurogamer has echoed this information in a new report.

The news, which initially came from ModernWarzone, stated that the current title for the 2021 Call of Duty is ‘WWII Vanguard.’ While ModernWarzone said the name might be a code name, Eurogamer has verified this news, stating that they understand “Activision’s current plan is to stick with the Vanguard subtitle for the final version.”

This is, of course, just a rumor for now. A name has not been officially confirmed and is subject to change.

The new title, set to release in Q4 2021, will mark Sledgehammer Games’ first new title since 2017. Their last title was Call of Duty: WWII.

While Activision has not officially confirmed SHG as the developer, “Eurogamer sources have indicated that this is indeed true.”

Rumors suggest that the 2021 game will take place during the 1950s, expanding beyond what the 2017 game covered in its focus on the European front of the war.

ModernWarzone stated in a video that the game was set in an “alternate timeline” where WWII never ended. However, Eurogamer disputes that information saying that the game is “traditional” WWII setting.

Activision has not officially announced any details on the 2021 Call of Duty game. The company has only confirmed that there will in fact be a new Call of Duty title later this year.

The new title is expected to be integrated with the free to play Call of Duty: Warzone title with it’s launch too, as the company continues to push for Warzone’s expansion.

When Activision plans to reveal the 2021 game remains to be seen. With the success of Warzone and Cold War, the company could hold on revealing it till later in the year, similar to Cold War’s reveal in August 2020.

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Multiplayer has a wide array of Killstreaks for players to earn, but none are more devastating than the V2 Rocket.

Call of Duty’s Multiplayer experience has always involved Killstreaks, allowing players to earn an advantage against the enemy. The illustrious nuke Killstreak has always intrigued players, and in Vanguard, it’s known as the V2 Rocket.

Players have been enjoying the Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta recently, especially since the date was extended to end on September 22.

Players across Xbox, PlayStation, and PC have been getting to grips with how the multiplayer works, testing out and giving feedback on various aspects of the game.

While some players are focused on the Field Upgrades and disappointed with the mini-map, many are happy to see the addition of a nuke-like Killstreak called the V2 Rocket. Let’s get into what it is and how you can get it.

How to get the V2 Rocket in Call of Duty: Vanguard

The V2 Rocket is Call of Duty: Vanguard’s nuke Killstreak that ultimately kills everyone on the map and ends the game.

Previously known as a Tactical Nuke, the Vanguard V2 Rocket essentially works very similarly to Modern Warfare 2019’s rendition of the nuke Killstreak.

To get this Killstreak, players must get a 25 gun streak in a single match. Players do not need to equip the Vanguard V2 Rocket as a killstreak, as it is awarded once you achieve the 25 gun streak regardless of the Killstreaks you have chosen to use before entering the match.

If you happen to get it, an alarm will go off along with a short countdown, and players can even spot the rocket dropping just outside the map before burning everyone’s screen and ending the game.

Having said that, if you are looking to achieve a higher killstreak than 25, make sure you don’t use the V2 Rocket before your streak is over.

Of course, getting this 25 Killstreak is very difficult and will take a lot of time and effort to do so. The best advice we can give e is to play smart, take your time, and don’t panic.

The worst thing that can happen is for players to get close to the Killstreak and then choke at the final hurdle as they panic and overthink situations.

That’s all on the V2 Rocket in Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Multiplayer. Be sure to check out our article on the best audio settings for the Vanguard Beta for more.

Vanguard Beta cheaters can instantly end matches

Call of Duty players have reported hackers who are instantly ending matches and ruining the fun in the Vanguard open beta.

Vanguard’s open beta gives players a feel for how the game will be upon release, but it’s being plagued by hackers who are instantly ending matches and ruining the fun for players.

While Call of Duty: Vanguard is still a bit far off, fans can get a taste of the gameplay through the open beta ahead of the game’s official release on November 5. However, fans have been facing some issues with it.

Vanguard fans have previously called for big spawn improvements after trying out the open beta. A few of them are reporting hackers instantly ending matches and ruining the fun for other players.

Twitter user and streamer EasyStomps uploaded a clip that highlighted cheaters with new powers in the Vanguard beta. The player accused the cheater of using third-party software to wallhack.

The hacker then responded that he was going to end the match, and then the game instantly ended early. EasyStomps was bewildered that the cheater was capable of doing this in the open beta.

“Man you guys are terrible at this game, holy s**t, uh oh, alright, ending the game, oops, whoops,” he tweeted out.

Various players expressed their concern about this since hackers should not be able to wield power like this in Vanguard while it’s still in beta.

It can be particularly frustrating when someone instantly ends a match while other players are enjoying the game. This is an issue that the developers will need to address before the game’s release.

Hopefully, this problem will be resolved soon enough before the latest entry in the fan-favorite first-person shooter franchise is released, as this is an issue that will no doubt cause a great deal of frustration among players if it persists further in the lifespan of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best ITRA Burst loadout for CoD: Vanguard Beta

Here are the best attachments and Perks you should run with your ITRA Burst Assault Rifle loadout in CoD: Vanguard’s Beta.

ITRA Burst assault rifle in call of duty vanguard

The ITRA Burst is a powerful and unique weapon in Call of Duty Vanguard’s Beta, so here are the best attachments and Perks you can use to create the ideal loadout.

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Beta has allowed players to test a wide range of weapons, Killstreaks, and maps ahead of its November 5 launch. One of the most unique additions is the ITRA Burst, a four-round burst Assault Rifle that can be unlocked fairly early.

Here are the attachments and Perks you should run with your ITRA Burst loadout in Vanguard’s Beta.

Best ITRA Burst Vanguard loadout attachments

ITRA Burst Rifle in Vanguard Gunsmith
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 300MM CXII
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Botti DII Grip
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Handstop
  • Magazine: 8MM Jaeger 32 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: On-Hand

This Vanguard ITRA Burst loadout combines accuracy and mobility, allowing you to beam enemies across the map but still hold your own when caught at closer ranges.

We’re starting with the Recoil Booster muzzle for the ITRA. Don’t be deceived by its name though, it actually increases the weapons fire rate, rather than affecting recoil. When using a burst gun such as this, a higher fire rate makes it much more forgiving.

And next, we’ve added the Botti 30MM CXII barrel. There are no better choices to use with the ITRA, as this barrel removes any damage drop-off. You’ll get an extremely useful 40% buff to bullet velocity, but it will also have unlimited range.

For optics, it’s up to your own personal preference. However, we don’t recommend anything with high zoom, as you’ll struggle to fight up-close. We recommend the MK 3 Sunfilter as its 1.5x zoom and idle sway control are extremely useful for all ranges.

For the stock, the Botti DII Grip gives a solid boost to both ADS speed and recoil control without affecting the sprint-to-fire time. Then, the M1941 Handstop improves both horizontal and vertical recoil control without changing that all-important sprint-to-fire time.

As a Magazine, 8MM Jaeger 32 Round Drums don’t come with any major negatives, making them the best option. You’ll have a slightly slower reload, but it will be worth it for the extra bullets at your disposal.

Next up, the Lengthened ammo type is a must for this Assault Rifle. Its bullet velocity will improve by a whopping 30%, allowing your bursts to land almost instantly. After that, the Fabric Grip will speed up both ADS and sprint-to-fire time, with only a minor nerf to horizontal recoil control. Horizontal is much less impactful than vertical, so you should barely notice a difference.

For the ITRA Burst’s kit, we recommend On-Hand, as you’ll be able to use the weapon again after throwing equipment. And its Proficiency, Vital is extremely useful, allowing you to one-burst enemies in the chest.

Best Perks to run with ITRA Burst in Vanguard

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Radar
  • Perk 3: Demolition

Ghost is a staple Call of Duty Perk, and it’s just as effective in Vanguard. While moving, you’ll be hidden from enemy intel such a Spy Planes so you can pull off some effective flanks.

Next, Radar brings the return of the traditional minimap. You’ll see unsuppressed gunfire on the minmap, giving you much more information to work with. And finally, Demolition gives you extra lethal equipment and you can see its flight path.

How to unlock the ITRA Burst in Vanguard Beta

The ITRA Burst is unlocked quite early in Vanguard’s Beta at Level 10. Play for a couple of hours and you’ll quickly gain access to the powerful weapon.

This could change in the full release on November 5, but we’ll keep you updated.

Best alternatives to Vanguard ITRA Burst

Luckily, Vanguard’s Beta includes several other powerful choices. The STG44 quickly became recognized as a fan-favorite choice and the Volk is also an effective Assault Rifle. Or, if you’re looking for something for more up-close, you can’t go wrong with the MP-40.


And that’s the best ITRA Burst loadout you can use in Vanguard’s Beta! For more guides, you can also check out the best audio and controller settings.
