Description

Call of Duty: Vanguard for PC is the eighteenth game in the Call of Duty first-person shooter (fps) franchise. This game takes place after the death of Hitler, despite the name Vanguard implying those in front, and it plays out over four theatres of war: namely: the Western Front, the Eastern Front, North Africa and the South Pacific.

About the Game


The game is set after Hitler’s death, as mentioned above, just as the Allies are beginning to relax into the idea that they have won and the war is, at long last, over. However, word has got out that Hitler had a plan for this, or at least his remaining cronies and supporters do, and the project, code named, ‘Project Phoenix’ is underway to appoint Hitler’s successor – who would, presumably, continue with his nefarious plans for Aryan world domination.

The main protagonist of the game is the evil Heinrich Freisinger who is supposedly based on real life baddy Heinrich Muller, who ran the Gestapo for the Reich showing appalling dedication to his career and apparently driven by ambition rather than ideology… While Hitler did, in fact, have a chosen successor, he was a political appointee, not, as this game implies, the spiritual successor to his plans.

This just goes to show that the Call of Duty franchise is close to exhausting the possibilities of pure historical fact, and moving ever closer to the boundary between historical fact and pure fiction as has already been explored in some of the ‘alternate time-lines’ that have appeared in other games in the series.

You will play as one of four special operatives – which indicates the birth of spec ops teams – running over twenty maps in the various areas. See more about the spec ops troops below.

The Nitty Gritty


This game embraces the authenticity of the time, with an emphasis on realistic WWII weaponry, a win for those who enjoy the differences in the heft and report of the different weapons.

Good News for Zombie lovers, they are back again! There is also an all new Battle Royale with a brand new map in which to fight to the death. Good news for those annoyed by players with cheat codes becoming all but unbeatable: there is a new anti-cheat system, so you will once again be able to sneak up on people, dodge their bullets as allowed by the game’s parameters, and hide from the most blood-thirsty opponents once more.

Sixteen of the twenty game maps allow for 6 player versus 6 player games to play out, while the remaining four maps are dedicated to the Champion Hill mode. The story campaign game plays out on all four fronts but the ending of the saga draws the four antagonists together for a final scenario in which loose ends are tied up.

Special Ops is Born


The Special Ops troops all have fictional names, but were inspired by real life heroes:

  • Sgt. Arthur Kingsley is British, a member of the 9th Parachute Regiment, and inspired by real life Black paratrooper Sydney Cornell

  • Lt. Polina Petrova, who is a Soviet, from the 138th Rifle Division. Polina may or may not be a red hot sniper like her real life inspiration Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who was so good at it that she earned the nickname Lady Death

  • Capt. Wade Jackson, from the USA is a member of the Navy’s Scouting Squadron Six. He is based upon Vernon L Micheel, who was famed for blowing up Japanese aircraft carriers at the battle of Midway in the Pacific

  • And finally, 2nd Lt. Lucas Riggs is an Australian, from the 20th Battalion and based on the real life hero Charles Upham who was a New Zealander, often claimed to be the most decorated Commonwealth soldier for winning not one but two Victoria Crosses – one in Egypt and one Crete

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    it was meh tbh compare the other games it's nothing to go crazy everything is good the story was mostly setting itself up for a sequel with every mission besides the first and last being a flashback it also kinda fucked with the timeline by indirectly referencing both the BlackOps timeline and the Dark Aether (Zombies) timeline
    • snoop dogg
    • Zombies (post season 3)
    • multiplayer is nothing special plays like the last two games
    • you can't buy Snoop Dogg anymore
    • you wait when its on sale

    This game is unfinished, unbalanced, mainstream and has nothing special to offer - even the competitive aspect is gone

    no skill needed to kill somebody

    the same bs over and over again

    no rewards for beeing a "good" player instead the noobs get rewarded for camping in corners and pre-aiming doorways while never moving even 1 cm

    far too many ingame - transactions

    battlepass is completely useless cause its bugged and nothing even slightly worth in it

    woundt recommend this piece of sht even my worst enemy

    This game has lots of potential. The multiplayer is enjoyable but has 1 major problem which never seems to get addressed: packet burst. Lots of people have this problem which causes lag even with very good connection and for me it ruins Vanguard when I can actually have fun. Lots of maps and guns

    Campaign is good but could be longer

    I’ve barely played zombies but you don’t need to to know how bad it is. Hopefully some round based maps can improve it.
    • Actual fun multiplayer
    • Good campaign
    • Lots of content
    • Levelling up guns is very long
    • Packet burst lag problems
    • Bad zombies

    First of all. DO NOT BUY IT IF YOU PLAYED OTHER CODs! This CoD was made for noobs. In every Corner someone is camping and you don´t have a chance to kill him. On every Map you have corners to camp. You can´t have action because everywhere someone is camping.
    • nothing
    • for noobs
    • no action
