With Vanguard Season 1 right around the corner, more news has surfaced including the arrival of two new maps. 

December 8 is fast approaching and Vanguard players just received an enormous amount of information regarding Season 1. The devs confirmed the introduction of two free weapons, a new Operator, Multiplayer modes, and most importantly two maps.

The bevy of new content is sure to excite Vanguard players everywhere. However, the one piece of information that is generating the most excitement is the inclusion of a yet to be revealed fan-favorite map

Which maps are coming to Vanguard Season 1?

Vanguard launched with a whopping 16 Multiplayer maps and 4 Champion Hill maps for a total of 20 maps. Considering Sledgehammer spoiled Vanguard players with several maps at launch, some may be surprised to see we’re getting two new maps so soon.

Ultimately, receiving new maps is a great thing for the Vanguard community. It helps keep the Multiplayer experience feeling fresh. The Call of Duty devs promised that one of the two new maps is “a Pacific-inspired take on a fan-favorite classic Call of Duty map.”

This statement has led many to speculate which map is going to make a return. The quote is leading players to believe that an iconic map is going to get a Pacific-themed revamp, much like Vanguard’s iteration of Shipment.

Vanguard players are already beginning to imagine what their favorite map would look like in Vanguard. The most popular guesses seem to be Terminal, Rust, Nuketown, and Shoot House. Considering how highly regarded each of these maps are, Vanguard players would be lucky to receive even one of them. 

When more details involving the two maps are revealed, check back in for an update. In the meantime, CharlieINTEL has got you covered for Season 1’s December 8 launch.

A list of unreleased Vanguard game modes has been leaked by a Call of Duty dataminer, suggesting modes like Infected could be returning to the franchise.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has been a great success for the franchise since its release, with players happy about the variety of maps, weapons, and game modes.

With Vanguard on the verge of its first season and integration with Warzone, dataminers have been uncovering details about the Multiplayer. The most recent leaks have uncovered a variety of game modes that players could be seen in the game soon.

For those that don’t know, Vanguard was created using the Modern Warfare (2019)’s engine. Many have enjoyed this aspect of Vanguard, especially as its integration with Warzone should be much smoother, as it also uses the same engine.

What dataminers have found is that a lot of Modern Warfare’s content is still within the game’s files.

This isn’t anything profound or official, but it does possibly mean that we could be seeing some of that content in Vanguard.

Vanguard Infected leaks

Call of Duty dataminer sebas4412 recently revealed some of this Modern Warfare content and actually managed to get it working within Vanguard. In a tweet made on November 29, they said “lol like almost every MW mode has functionality in Vanguard, just got infected working.”

It is interesting that they were able to get Infected working, as some of the other modes found like “Tanks” and “Skulls” were unplayable. Could this potentially mean we will be seeing Infected within Vanguard’s future?

As players will know, Black Ops Cold War also had the Infected mode, but this wasn’t released until a little while after its launch.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but we’re sure there will be new game modes coming to Vanguard in the future, and perhaps these leaks are a hint as to what we may see.

Battlefield 2042 players desperate to see classic features return

Battlefield 2042 players are calling for the return of some classic features from the franchise’s previous Multiplayer modes.

Battlefield 2042 is finally here, and while some players have been enjoying the Multiplayer mode, some feel it needs to bring some classic features back.

Battlefield 2042‘s Multiplayer is a great addition to the franchise. Despite complaints about the launch weapons, the Portal mode and depth of settings and options have been fantastic.

New mechanics such as the Plus system have been welcomed, but some players feel some classic features need to return.

Battlefield 2042 scoreboard

Reddit user At0m11c wants one simple feature to return from previous Battlefield games. In their recent post, they call for the devs to “Bring back the traditional Scoreboard!”

The scoreboard is an important part of Multiplayer FPS games, especially Battlefield. In the past, Battlefield’s scoreboard has provided information such as all the players on the teams and their performance.

The new scoreboard in Battlefield 2042 gives players much less information. Although it does give you a clear breakdown of your own performance, there isn’t much on the whole lobby.

The player believes the devs should bring the Battlefield 4 scoreboard back, calling it “a perfect scoreboard.” They aren’t the only one who feels this way either, as many are disappointed with the change: “Is that seriously not in the game? Very disappointing.”

Further, a Reddit user by the name of jamesswazz has pointed out yet another classic feature the players would like to return in Battlefield 2042. Much like the scoreboard issue, players aren’t happy that there is less information on nearby medics.

Back in previous iterations, players could see how close a medic was to them when they were down. This stopped players from quickly respawning and letting themselves bleed out. The Reddit user has played the medic role in the previous Battlefield games, and always enjoyed “running around reviving everyone.”

Having said that, the player feels that “the opportunities to revive in 2042 are non-existent,” mostly due to the lack of a medic indicator.

Players are confused as to how this feature didn’t make the final game. The user feels DICE needs to add it in order to save the gameplay: “This needs to change for the sake of the game.”

We’ll have to wait and see whether or not DICE decides to return these classic features. One thing to note is that the game is currently very new and will likely go through various updates.
