Call of Duty: Vanguard 5 Best Tips for Newcomers


The Call of Duty franchise has a new game in town, Vanguard, and just like their other recent offerings, it has been a massive success. Sure, the rollout of the game could have been better with the first few versions of the game filled with glitches, overpowered guns, and many funny moments, but the last couple of years have been tough on game developers, so we can give COD at least a little leeway. Anyway, the game is back to its absolute best and is going stronger than ever.

To help gamers get the ultimate gaming experience, we have listed some of the best COD Vanguard hacks that can help them get started immediately without spending their first couple of hours getting familiar with the basics. So, fasten your seatbelts and follow the below-listed tips carefully.

Start with disabling the World Motion Blur.

The first thing that you must do in your COD: Vanguard is to disable the World Motion Blur immediately. The World Motion Blur gives a cinematic experience to the gameplay, and while it does look great, it can make it extremely challenging for one to spot enemies. The blur effect distracts players in their gameplay, which is something no player would want.

Now, that is not to say that you cannot get accustomed to this setting. But if that is what you want, we would encourage you first to play the campaign mode to determine whether or not you would be okay with these settings.

Change the default settings.

It is very likely that many of the readers already have some experience with other Call of Duty games or, at the very least, with other FPS PvP battle royale games. This experience allows you to make some adjustments to the game settings immediately. While there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the default settings, you would not have the best playing experience with them.

No, it is far better for you to change the gaming settings according to your playstyle. Our advice to new players is to find that sweet spot between 4 and 8 in the sensitivity settings.

Invest in quality headphones

You probably have already heard this advice a hundred times for other COD games. But such is their importance that we are forced to offer them again. You just can’t deny the value of investing in a good pair of headphones. With a good pair, you could hear every movement in your vicinity, whether it is by the enemy player or your team.

Combine the headphones with a high alert or radar perk in the game, and you would be close to being invincible in the game. The only way to counteract it is by using a Ninja perk that can let one step around silently.

So, while investing in headphones can certainly help, you would not suddenly become an all-conquering player.

Be smart with your weapons.

Since the game, we are talking about is another COD offering, it goes without saying that choosing your weapons can be extremely crucial. You simply cannot just select any gun for your match without giving it due consideration. Assault rifles, SMGs, and even shotguns are recommended for close and medium-range battles. Going with snipers and LMGs would suit your taste if you are more of a long-distance shooter.

Another thing that you should never avoid always is the weapon XP each of the guns has. It can play a vital role in making that weapon choice. The higher the XP, the more attachments you would be able to unlock. So, simply put, if you have a preferred weapon, use it more and get that weapon XP off the charts.

Play Blitz to level up faster

Adding on to the previous tip, playing Blitz mode is the easiest way to level up faster in COD: Vanguard. One would think that the 48-player mode should be more challenging when in fact, it is quite the opposite. It is common for new players of the game to play this mode rather than the 6v6 or the 28-player mode. Playing Blitz will allow you to match up against players that are more of a match to your skill level and even enable you to experiment with the loadout to your hearts content.

If you are a newbie, you will surely find that the above-mentioned tips are highly useful. Get your game started with these tips and enjoy a brilliant experience while playing Call of Duty Vanguard.
