Call Of Duty: Vanguard – Beginner’s Guide: Tips and Tricks for New Players

Call Of Duty: Vanguard - Beginner's Guide

Call Of Duty: Vanguard was released a while ago, and if you’re just acquired the game, and you’re not familiar with any Call Of Duty games, then you might have some trouble with the game. It is a unique FPS game, and its frenetic gameplay might be a little too much for new players to handle. But don’t worry, because here, you’re going to learn how to get started on the game, and hopefully, these tips and tricks will help you feel more comfortable with the game. Call Of Duty’s primary focus is the multiplayer and online mode, so these tips will focus on that.



Let’s Get Started


First, let’s talk about some graphics settings that will help you be able to play the game without a lot of distraction. Motion blur and screen shake are two settings that won’t change the game’s look, but they will remove a couple of distractions. Motion blur can be a little annoying since your screen will be blurry at certain times, and screen shake can also distract you by shaking the screen. It is best to have the camera be as clean as possible, making it easier for you to focus on keeping your sights on the enemy. Another setting that will help you a lot is adjusting your field of view. Adjusting it helps you have a better view of the map and will help you spot your targets.


There are other settings that you can mess around with, so be sure to take a look at them, and as you can play the game, you can adjust them so that the game plays the way you want.






If you’re still unsure what weapons you should use, start using the STG – 44. It is a great weapon and the perfect choice for beginners and for those who aren’t familiar with FPS games. This gun is one of the best assault rifles in the game, and it will help you get familiar with the game. As you use a weapon, you will begin to unlock attachments for it, making the weapon even better. Another great weapon is the MP – 40. It is a great choice if you like SMGs, and it has a high firing rate, which makes it great for close-range combat. Now, if you’re more interested in sniper rifles, the KAR98K is a great choice to get you started, and it will help you get used to how sniping works in the game.


And if you’re looking to focus on close-range combat only, then the Combat Shotgun is the perfect weapon for you. It is a great weapon to cover the corners and will give you the upper hand in smaller maps.





Environment and Movement

Sprinting is a great mechanic that allows you to move quickly through the map, but using it a lot can get you killed, especially if you sprint around corners. So try not to sprint that much, and be careful in smaller maps. To have the upper hand against the enemy team, you can make use of the environments that can be destroyed, giving you the element of surprise. Not everything can be destroyed, but take advantage of what can be. It will help you flank your enemies and escape when in a tight spot. So go on and destroy everything you can; not only is it fun, but also extremely helpful.


Now let’s talk about perks. They have always been an important mechanic of the games, and they still are. So be sure always to try different combinations of perks, and see what works best for you. A good starting perk is radar, which will reveal when the enemy team fires. This will help you find your enemies faster, and it’s great for newcomers.




A mechanic that recently became important to the Call Of Duty games is something called suppression fire and blind fire. If you’re not familiar with these concepts, here is what they mean. Suppression fire will affect the enemy’s movement, and if they’re under heavy fire, they will move slowly, and their field of view will also be affected. This is a great mechanic that helps your allies go in for the kill while you pressure the enemy.  And blind fire is a mechanic that allows you to shoot around corners without peeking. This counters the effect of the suppression fire. These mechanics add more to the game other than just running around like crazy and shooting your enemies. If you’re new to the game, this information will help you a lot since you will understand when you’re under suppression fire and how to counter it by using the blind fire properly.


When searching for matches, don’t forget to use Combat Pacing so that you can play a match that better fits what you’re looking for. This is a new mechanic that allows you to filter matches between three types. Blitz, where matches will be fast-paced and will take on larger maps with more players, Standard is the classic matches, and Tactical is slower and focuses on giving players more time to kill. At first, be sure to give each mode a try, and then choose the one where you feel more comfortable playing, and if you get tired of playing a certain type, you can always change the match type.




Call Of Duty: Vanguard is a game that will require some time to get used to, but once you do, the game will begin to get even more fun. Hopefully, if you’re new to the game, these tips and tricks will help you get started. But remember that the best way to get good at something is to actually do it, so don’t be afraid to play the game. Try out every game mode, and if you’re scared to go straight online, you can play through the game campaign so that you can get used to the controls and overall mechanics. And remember, the most important thing is to have fun.
