Vanguard’s two-shot Type 100 loadout exposed by streamers

The two-shot kill Type 100 is leaving many Call of Duty: Vanguard players questioning how they died so quickly.

Call of Duty players are quickly realizing that the Type 100 may soon dethrone the MP-40 for the title of best Submachine Gun in Vanguard. 

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Type 100 is mowing down the competition. Much has been said about Vanguard’s fast TTK, and the Type 100 is yet another Submachine Gun that could abuse this mechanic. 

Upon Vanguard’s release, players immediately flocked to the MP-40 as the preferred Submachine Gun. The Type 100 may have it beat in terms of raw power. Equipped with the correct attachments, this weapon has the potential to two-shot kill your enemies. 

Several Call of Duty streamers and personalities have showcased just how deadly the Type 100 is.

Vanguard’s Two-shot Type 100 Loadout

Streamer RaidAway is one of the earliest players to discover how deadly the weapon can be. In the video below you can watch him run rampant with the Type 100. 

Vanguard players who are eager to test this loadout for themselves can jump to the end of the video where he runs through the recommended weapon attachments. Here’s a quick rundown.

  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Shiraishi Precision 
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal 
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This isn’t the first occasion of broken weapons appearing in Vanguard. During its launch week, many players complained about an STG 44 loadout that similarly killed enemies in two shots. 

Suffice it to say, most Vanguard players are upset at the fact that Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns have two-shot kill potential.

As far as the Type 100 is concerned, there is a pretty big catch to producing the two-shot kill. In order to perform a two-shot kill, players must target an enemy’s chest.

In the video below, you can clearly see the Type 100 eliminating a target with two shots to the chest from some distance. 

Weapon balancing has been a hot topic of conversation lately. Vanguard is still in its early days and we can expect the weapon meta to be affected by future patches. 

Sledgehammer has already addressed certain bug and glitch fixes in their most recent patch. Vanguard players should expect a patch to address weapon balancing sometime soon.

Does Vanguard Zombies have a Main Quest Easter Egg?

Treyarch have returned to continue the Zombies Dark Aether storyline in Vanguard, but does Der Anfang have a Main Quest Easter Egg?

Treyarch returned to develop the Zombies mode for Call of Duty: Vanguard, continuing the Dark Aether storyline. Easter Eggs are one of Zombies’ most popular aspects, so does Der Anfang have a hidden Main Quest?

Vanguard players have been disappointed with Treyarch’s latest WW2 Zombies experience, blasting its lack of traditional features. However, it still offers the Zombie-slaying action that players have come to expect, and is a great place to level up weapons ahead of Warzone Pacific’s Caldera.

All of Black Ops Cold War’s maps, such as Firebase Z and Forsaken, had a complicated Easter Egg to complete, so players are wondering if Der Anfang includes a Main Quest.

Here’s everything we know about Vanguard Zombies’ Der Anfang Main Quest Easter Egg.

Does Vanguard Zombies Der Anfang have a Main Quest Easter Egg?

At the time of writing, Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies does not have a Main Quest or Easter Egg to complete.

So although you can slay Zombies to your heart’s content, there aren’t any ulterior missions or objectives to complete. However, Treyarch have confirmed that a Main Quest will arrive.

In a blog post detailing Vanguard Zombies, Treyarch teased that the Main Quest would begin in Season 1, but will be released in stages.

Treyarch revealed that when Season 1 launches, “new Zombies content & features will begin to roll out in Vanguard, including a new Objective, additional Covenants, new weapons, Zombies Season Challenges, holiday-themed updates, and more.”

They continued, “Players will also encounter some other surprise elements later in Season One that will set the stage for our upcoming Main Quest.”

“This Main Quest will be tied to the arrival of an unexpected ally after Season One,” Treyarch concluded. “Which will further expand the narrative of the Dark Aether, and reveal more details about the characters and entities that players will have encountered thus far.”

Treyarch have been playing their cards close to their chest so far, without a clear explanation of exactly what will be arriving and when.

However, in Warzone’s Caldera map reveal, the developers said players can soon “expect to learn about the two free functional weapons, new Operator, Zombies content, Multiplayer modes, and two maps all coming on December 8.” So, we’re likely to know more about Vanguard Zombies’ next stage in the coming days.

Crazy Vanguard glitch lets players levitate above the map

Since launch, several glitches and bugs have been discovered in Vanguard. One of them takes players soaring into the sky.

Published

Vanguard elevator glitch update

The return of an iconic Call of Duty glitch is giving Vanguard players a broken line of sight on enemies as they take to the sky.

Vanguard hasn’t felt like the smoothest gaming experience since its launch on November 5. Players have been quick to discover some game-breaking exploits that make Vanguard nearly unplayable. Although most issues have been addressed through recent patches, some still remain.

One of the issues yet to be fixed is the elevator glitch. After popping up weeks ago, its relevance diminished as other glitches came to prominence. However, this new clip showing the advantageous position players can get themselves in has renewed interest in the glitch.

MW2 elevator glitch

This particular glitch traces its roots back to Modern Warfare 2. The glitch sees players ascend straight up into the sky emulating an elevator, hence the glitch’s name. There’s no doubt the devs are going to have a look at something this game-breaking.

As the player ascends, their view of the map changes to a top-down perspective. This gives players a clear view of all of the areas on the map including enemy players stomping around.

In the past, we’ve seen this glitch occur on the Oasis map as well as Sub Pens. Recently it has also popped up on close-quarters map Decoy. Odds are this glitch is accessible on just about every Vanguard map.

This clip perfectly explores the incredible advantage someone gains after rising to the sky. The player is equipped with a Sniper Rifle making long-range kills supremely easy to earn. In addition, the small nature of the map means that this player can practically see every enemy player who isn’t in a building.

To make matters worse, they are playing Search & Destroy. This makes the high ground advantage more impactful. With one life per round, players cannot respawn and eliminate the player in the sky. There probably has never been an easier way to guard S&D bomb sites.

With Vanguard Season 1 around the corner, Sledgehammer must be working hard to ensure a smooth rollout. Given the mixed player reaction to in-game issues since launch, a lot is riding on the success of Season 1.

There’s no doubt that Vanguard players will receive a major patch addressing the current glitches running rampant.

Vanguard Zombies players extremely disappointed with lack of Season 1 content

Fans of the popular Zombies game mode are furious with the underwhelming additions coming to Vanguard in Season 1.

Vanguard Zombies season 1

Time and time again Zombies players feel as though their favorite game mode is receiving the short end of the stick. The lack of planned content announced for Season 1 has left them feeling disappointed.

The Call of Duty devs released a ton of information on what players should expect with the launch of Vanguard Season 1 and Warzone: Pacific Caldera. To the dismay of Zombies players, little to no information concerning the game mode was included in the report.

Given the size of the announcement Zombies players were bewildered at not getting new information. They feel that the tendency to ignore the Zombies game mode is becoming somewhat of a recurring theme.

Vanguard Zombies Season 1 content

Vanguard Season 1 road map

While the Call of Duty blog post detailed several new additions coming to Vanguard and Warzone, it mentions practically nothing about Zombies. There are one or two tidbits across the blog post that promise “Zombies content” without ever going into detail on what that might entail.

With how disappointed Zombies players were at Vanguard’s launch, some red flags have appeared from the blog post. They had high hopes of receiving major content in Season 1 given how hollow Zombies has been. Many believe the silence regarding Zombies is a very bad thing.

With no new information to digest, Zombies players have to rely on previously announced content to give them comfort. The devs have already promised a dedicated pause feature, the addition of scorestreaks, 1-2 objectives, and new covenants.

Receiving these minor additions in Season 1 is hardly going to satisfy the Zombies community. This is especially true considering Zombies players felt like they required some of these features at launch.

Players have even started mocking the Vanguard Zombies content by comparing it with Black Ops 3’s superior Zombies experience.

With Season 1 not likely to improve the Zombies experience in Vanguard, players will have to hope that Season 2 and beyond will be kinder to them.
