Killstreaks have been wreaking havoc in Call of Duty’s multiplayer for years, and Vanguard is no exception, with some players begging for a mode without them.

Vanguard‘s Multiplayer has been very popular since release, with many recently enjoying the return of classic Call of Duty map Shipment.

Killstreaks have become an iconic part of the multiplayer experience, and Vanguard offers players some pretty strong options. Killstreaks like the Attack Dogs and Bombing Run can often cause havoc on maps, especially when called in together.

It seems some players are fed up with these overpowered killstreaks, calling on the devs to bring the popular no-streaks mode Face Off from Cold War into Vanguard.

Players call for mode without Vanguard Killstreaks

Face Off was originally a game mode in Black Ops Cold War. This mode saw teams of six battle it out on the Gunfight maps, featuring Domination, Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, and Kill Confirmed.

One of the most loved aspects of this mode was the fact that Scorestreaks were disabled. This is something that Reddit user lookatmycode would also like to see in Vanguard, posting that “there should be a game mode without killstreaks.”

In their post, the player expresses their experience with Killstreaks in Vanguard. The user states that a lot of their games are spent “mostly getting crushed by killstreaks” with the whole map in “chaos.”

They aren’t the only one who feels this way either, as users in the comments are expressing similar opinions:

“Mortar barrages are annoying even if my team is using them, they shake the screen and put smoke in my face, and dogs feel too op with having like double the health of a person plus it feels like my shots go through them sometimes.”

Here’s another similar view: “What’s especially annoying is the kill streak that turns half the map on fire. That on top of people throwing thermites always drops my FPS to about 40 frames.”

Perhaps it’s time for the devs to do something about these overpowered killstreaks. A lot of the community are feeling the same way. A game mode like Face Off from Cold War could satisfy players.
