All Vanguard & Warzone weapons arriving in Season 4

Thanks to the Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 roadmap we got our first clear look at the new weapons set to arrive with the update.



Vanguard Season 4 Operator with Marco 5

Following the release of the Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 roadmap, players got their first look at the new weapons arriving with the major update on June 22.

Excitement for Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 is starting to build after the Call of Duty team shared the official roadmap on June 16. The roadmap revealed a ton of new content coming to both Vanguard and Warzone including the USS Texas and Fortune’s Keep maps.

Of course, new weaponry was also on display and throughout Season 4, players will be able to acquire four brand-new weapons. Let’s take a look at the weapons that will make their way to Vanguard and Warzone in Season 4.

Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 roadmap

While some Vanguard players have not been pleased with the amount of new content coming to the game in Season 4, at the very least they’ll have four new weapons to discover.

Season 4 will bring a new LMG and SMG to the game via the Season 4 Battle Pass, while an Assault Rifle and Melee weapon are expected to be available later on.

Players will receive another LMG in Season 4 after Season 2 brought the Whitley to the game. The Whitley is notorious for being overpowered in Vanguard, which has caused players to be cautious about the new UGM-8 LMG.

The UGM-8 is designed to be lightweight which is a feature that differentiates the weapon from the rest of Vanguard’s LMG category, “Combining high mobility with a high fire rate, the UGM-8 is ideal for players looking to keep pace with their teammates.”

Marco 5 SMG

Yet another SMG will be introduced in Vanguard and Warzone Season 4. Post-launch Vanguard SMGs have simply dominated Warzone and another one is on the way.

The Marco 5 SMG will be an excellent option for aggressive run and gun players. Not only is the Marco 5 accurate from the hip, but it displays incredible stopping power from close-range. The tradeoff for the high damage output is considerable recoil and damage falloff at long range.

It will also be “the first SMG in Vanguard to feature the Akimbo Proficiency.”

Vargo S Assault Rifle

Season 4 will also introduce a new Assault Rifle to the weapon pool. The Vargo S is coming to Vanguard and Warzone, but it won’t be arriving with the June 22 update. Instead, it will arrive later in the season, likely with the Season 4 Reloaded update.

The Vargo S seems to be a variation of the Vargo 52 that only recently made its way to Warzone in Season 2. You can expect “a high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload,” when using this Assault Rifle.

Push Dagger melee

A unique new Melee weapon is arriving in Season 4, but much like the Vargo S, it is only expected to arrive following the June 22 update. However, according to a Call of Duty blog, the Push Dagger should arrive before Season 4 Reloaded.

The Push Dagger is “built for speed and stealth,” and more than any other Melee weapon, it excels in close-quarters combat.

You can unlock the Push Dagger by:

  • Multiplayer – Getting 5 Melee Kills with a Primary Weapon in a Single Match 15 times.
  • Zombies – Getting 100 kills with a Melee weapon while shrouded by your Aether Shroud.

Vanguard June 30 update patch notes: Ranked Play restrictions, Zombies bug fixes, more

Vanguard’s June 30 update patch notes brought changes to Ranked Play restrictions as well as fixes for several Zombies bugs in Season 4.



Vanguard Operators update patch notes

Call of Duty: Vanguard devs Sledgehammer Games released an update on June 30 that added two weapons to the Ranked Play restricted list and delivered bug fixes for several issues plaguing the Zombies mode.

Vanguard Season 4 introduced two new weapons to the game in the UGM-8 and Marco 5. Players have been enjoying the unique dual wield capabilities of the Marco 5, but it seems the SMG is now a restricted weapon in Vanguard’s Ranked Play following the June 30 update.

The devs also took time to address several bugs and glitches that were hindering the Zombies experience. When playing the new Shi No Numa map, players should notice smoother gameplay following the update.

Vanguard Ranked Play restrictions adjusted

Marco 5 SMG Vangurad

Season 4’s Marco 5 SMG and the Push Dagger Melee weapon have been added to the restricted list of Vanguard’s Ranked Play. Players were enjoying the new Marco 5 SMG in multiplayer and Ranked Play, but it seems they may have to return to the MP40.

This isn’t the first time a strong weapon was added to the Ranked Play restricted list as the Volk also received a ban in Season 3. Also, the top 250 Ranked Play leaderboard is now live in Vanguard.

You can check out the rest of the Vanguard June 30 update patch notes below.

How to get the “new Roze” Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard

Here’s how to get the Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard following comparisons to the iconic Roze skin.



Night Terror Skin Warzone Vanguard

It’s been some time since an Operator skin has shaken up Warzone but the Night Terror Florence skin, which many are calling the new Roze skin, has the potential to do so. Here’s how to get the Violet Stealth bundle in Warzone and Vanguard.

When the Roze skin was at the height of its power, it tormented Warzone lobbies one match after another. Due to the skin’s all-black outfit, it blended in easily with the surroundings and made it hard for enemies to spot before it received a decisive nerf.

In Season 4, a Warzone and Vanguard bundle highlights a similar skin that has made its way to Call of Duty with the Violet Stealth bundle. The Night Terror Florence skin shares many similarities to the Roze skin, so here’s everything you need to know about it.

How to get Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard

Violet Stealth bundle Warzone Vanguard

To get your hands on the Night Terror skin, you’ll have to purchase the Violet Stealth bundle. Following the Warzone update that nerfed the NZ-41 on June 30, the Violet Stealth bundle is available to purchase.

Despite the June 30 release, the bundle has yet to appear in the Vanguard and Warzone store in-game. Here’s where PC, Xbox, and PlayStation players can purchase the bundle.

Given the competitive advantage it might bring, you won’t want to miss the Violet Stealth bundle in Warzone and Vanguard Season 4.

Vanguard & Warzone Violet Stealth bundle content

It seems you’ll have to dish out $19.99 / £16.79 for the Vanguard and Warzone bundle and here’s what you’ll receive in exchange:

  • Night Terror Florence skin
  • Violet Violence Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle blueprint
  • Dark Ambient MP40 blueprint
  • Midnight Malice calling card
  • Hooded Hell emblem
  • Neon Artistry sticker
  • Funeral Director watch
  • Inscribed reticle
  • 2,400 CoD Points

Not only is the Night Terror skin expected to be a powerful cosmetic in-game, but the MP40 is a meta weapon in both Warzone and Vanguard, which further sweetens the deal.

Both the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle and MP40 blueprints will come equipped with neon purple tracer rounds that tie into the Violet Stealth aesthetic. The 2,400 CoD Points are a nice touch as a bonus you could use on another bundle.
