Tips to demolish Zombie hordes in Call of Duty: Vanguard

First, controller players should make sure they change the Aim Response Curve Type from Standard to Linear or Dynamic in the game’s settings, as it feels way too sticky. Along with that, they should even turn off Weapon Fire Threshold as it adds a bit of a trigger delay while firing guns. Plus, Call of Duty fans should also make sure they go through the settings and fine tune them according to their preferences.

Upon spawning, players will have to choose the Loadouts and their preferred Artifact. There are some new Artificats in the game, along with the returning Black Ops Cold War ones as well. Then, they can interact with one of the portals in Der Anfang, and play some of the objectives. Currently, there’s three objectives in Harvest, Transmit, and Blitz for fans to play on the Sledgehammer Games title. However, the developers will update it with more missions as time goes on.

Along with the Dark Aether Abilities and items from the Crafting Table, players can add more abilities with the Altar of Covenants. Players in Der Anfang can purchase them with Sacrificial Hearts, and they will earn these Hearts upon completion of an objective. They can hold up to three of them and they help them improve damage boosts, and thwart Zombies’ attempts to reach players. The best abilities that players should definitely use include the Cryofreeze and the Dead Accurate.

Call of Duty: Vanguard currently has five perks for players to use. The perk system has some slight tweaks as well, with players being able to unlock Tier 1 for free. However, the upgrades will cost a significant amount of Essence. The guns that players will receive from a Zombie will either be White, Blue, Purple or Orange. Additionally, there’s no weapon rarity like Loadout and Legendary from Black Ops Cold War. However, there’s still the three tiers of Pack-A-Punch.

Other than that, Vanguard incentivizes players for Headshot kills more than any other Call of Duty Zombie title. Plus, unlike last year’s Exfil, this year players can only leave the mode through a portal that spawns anywhere near the hub. Currently, Der Anfang doesn’t have a lot of content to offer players. However, with time and development, this Zombies mode could be one of the best in franchise history.
