Call of Duty

In this guide dedicated to the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta we will offer you some tips and tricks to get the better of your opponents in the new multiplayer shooter from Sledgehammer Games and Activision.

The second weekend of the beta will start at 19:00 today, Thursday 16 September. All PS5 and PS4 players will be able to participate, while on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S access is limited to those who have pre-ordered the game. From 7:00 pm on Saturday 18 September until Monday 20 September, the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta will be available on all platforms and open to all players.

For the occasion, you can try the new maps of Vanguard (Hotel Royal, Red Star and Gavutu) and the traditional game modes Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed and the new mode called Patrol, as well as Hill of Champions.

The settings to keep at a glance

Call of Duty: Vanguard - Hotel Royal, one of the maps available in the beta As you look forward to experiencing the fast-paced action of Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer, spend a few minutes in the game menus. settings before joining the fray is definitely not a bad idea. Whether it's tweaking some controller options and controls or interface elements, Sledgehammer Games' shooter has plenty of settings you can tweak to get the ideal setup for your needs.

For example, for those who play on consoles, we recommend trying to reduce the value of the dead zone of the controller triggers, in a range between 0 and 5. In this way your gun will fire immediately at the slightest pressure of the dedicated key. We also recommend that you turn off Motion Blur and Depth of Field, as they could be counterproductive on the battlefield, making it more difficult to spot and target opponents.

The balance of the audio mix can also make a difference. With the default options of the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta, you may have difficulty hearing footsteps amid Captain Butcher's exclamations, explosions and background music. For this reason we advise you to lower the volume of the dialogues to 50, as well as all the other "superfluous" options, with the exception of course of the sound effects that it is good to keep to the maximum.

Finally, as far as the peculiarities of the DualSense make the experience of the battlefield even more immersive than in the past, if you play on PS5 it might be a good idea to disable the effects of the adaptive triggers, in order to cancel any vibration or resistance effects of L2 and R2, that could be fatal distractions in hectic situations.

Get familiar with the battlefield

Call of Duty: Vanguard, use the covers to your advantage The Call of Duty: Vanguard beta is a great way to get a taste of Sledgehammer Games' title multiplayer modes ahead of its in-store debut on November 5th. As this is a trial version, your progress will not be retained in the full game. This means you can pretty much ignore your "Kill / Death" ratio and just think about the fun. It is also an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the maps and the feeling of the nine guns, between primary and secondary weapons, available in the beta, as well as to try alternative strategies and, in general, what is new the new iteration of the series offers. .

Having said that, if you aim to win as many matches as possible in the beta, the usual Call of Duty rules apply. As fast as the pace of play is, jumping headlong into the fray could prove doubly fatal. In addition to leaving us feathers, in fact, your opponents will be one step closer to activating spy planes, mortar bursts, unleashing assault dogs and all the other nice tools of death that can be obtained thanks to the series of kills. Ah and of course, wherever possible, always try to aim for the head if you want to quickly take out an opponent without giving them time to react.

Call of Duty: Vanguard shoot-outs are frenetic, but good reflexes are often not enough. an excellent aim to win. In fact, the Sledgehammer shooter also rewards those who play cunning and use the game mechanics to their advantage. Learning by heart which are the destructible elements of the maps allows you to take enemies by surprise and at the same time not to be caught unprepared. In Vanguard it is possible to demolish doors and windows, as well as destroy panels, scenery pieces, structures and other objects to flush out opponents. For example, creating an opening in a wall and using it as a cover while shooting through it could prove to be a tremendously effective solution to take out a group of enemies.

Speaking of cover: Once you have found cover behind solid objects, there are two ways to return fire besides shooting normally or aiming. The first consists in placing the weapon on a surface, a great return from previous titles, with the possibility of making it "slide" horizontally or vertically. The other is blind fire: by sacrificing a little accuracy, this maneuver allows for greater cover in situations where you are about to take cover fire.

Whether you are playing with a group of friends or with complete strangers, communicating with teammates and acting as a team is crucial in Call of Duty: Vanguard, especially in "articulate" modes like Hill of Champions. Always keep an eye on the mini-map at the top left of the screen to monitor the location of allies and the direction they are facing. Also pay attention to the compass at the top of the game interface, as it will indicate the indicative direction of an enemy that is shooting.

Don't forget to make the most of the tactical and lethal equipment, as well as the upgrades on the field. A good number of players just shoot and that's it, forgetting about the potential of these tools, which could guarantee you a few extra kills or save your skin in a complicated situation.

Loadout and Battle Rhythm

Call of Duty: Vanguard, an example of the variety for weapon customization Once you reach level 4 we recommend that you spend some time between games to experiment with various custom loadouts. In the beta of Call of Duty: Vanguard there are nine weapons, between primary and secondary, with which to become familiar, a small taste of what awaits us in the full game. In addition, thanks to the Master of Arms you can customize your favorite guns with up to 10 accessories, allowing thousands of additional possibilities to support any style of play in any combat scenario. Similarly, we advise you to experiment with the various perks available. In particular, the one related to the Radar could prove to be an excellent choice in the beta, since thanks to it the exact position of the opponents who shoot without using silenced weapons will be reported in the mini-map.

In any case ours advice is always to have fun without paying too much attention to the results. If you find that the matches are too chaotic you can filter the matches thanks to the Battle Rhythm. This new feature allows you to choose whether to take part in 6v6 (Tactical), 10v10 and 14v14 (Assault) matches or throw yourself into the chaos of clashes between 24 and 48 players (Blitz). You can also set the "Everyone" option and try several different Battle Rhythms to find out which one is right for you.
