Not wanting to be left out of all the current Call of Duty rumors and leaks, Sledgehammer and Treyarch have released details of the massive changes coming with the Vanguard Season 2 update on February 14th, 2022.
Since there’s so much, we’ve even gone as far as to split standard multiplayer and Zombies up, so check out all the new additions coming to Vanguard Zombies for Season 2 in this article. Here, we’ll just run through normal multiplayer.
COD Vanguard multiplayer Season 2 update — New content
Just like with Vanguard Zombies, there’s a massive amount of new stuff coming to Vanguard for Season 2. We’ll take a look at the key changes here, but for full patch notes, including bug fixes and updates, check out the blog post at sledgehammergames.com.
New Ranked Play Mode Beta
Ranked Play is coming to COD Vanguard. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a part of the COD League and play with the best of the best, or want to finetune your competitive skills, then tune into the Ranked Play Roundtable stream. The broadcast will take place on February 11th, 2022 at 11:15 PST/2:15pm EST/7:15pm GMT – or catch up if you’ve missed it – on the Call of Duty League YouTube channel.
New maps Casablanca and Gondola
Whether you’re feeling competitive or not, no doubt you’ll be glad to hear there are two brand-new maps coming to Vanguard multiplayer for Season 2; Casablanca and Gondola.
Casablanca is a medium map located in a bustling marketplace in Morocco and encourages vertical combat thanks to vantage points of varying heights.
Gondola leaves players hanging as you travel on a car headed out of the map. Don’t hang around, or you’ll be taken with it, and make sure you jump off while you have the chance. The gondola route itself provides a long vantage range for snipers, while there is plenty of room for close combat when your feet are firmly on the ground.
New Killstreak, Lethal and Perks from Battle Pass
From COD: WWII, the Ball Turret Gunner is going to become available as a new Killstreak for 12 kills in Vanguard. Plus, sticky bombs are back as an alternative Lethal throwable.
Two new Perks are being introduced for Season 2; Armory and Mechanic.
Armory is a direct counter-Perk to Engineer, and will be useful to Operators who like using placeable, tactical items such as Demolition Charges and Field Equipment.
Mechanic, on the other hand, offers an improvement to Field Upgrade charge time, so will be useful when trying to complete Field Upgrade-related challenges.
COD Vanguard Valentine’s launch day event
A pink-themed launch-day event provides the perfect Valentine’s Day escape whether you’re loved up or not. Get Double XP as you seek out cutesy, thematic map changes during the course of the February 14th event.
