Call of Duty Vanguard Beta Details – Maps, Game Modes, Weapons, Operators & More

Sledgehammer Games has revealed a load of new details about the upcoming Call of Duty Vanguard beta, including the maps, weapons, and more.

Call of Duty Vanguard is still a couple of months away, but players have already had the chance to play the game in the Vanguard Champion Hill Alpha.

That was just limited to the new Battle Royale-meets-Gunfight mode Champion Hill, but the upcoming beta will feature plenty of maps, modes, and more. Find out everything you need to know below.

But first, you’ll need to know how to play the Call of Duty Vanguard Beta.


Everything Coming to the Call of Duty Vanguard Beta

Call of Duty Vanguard’s Beta is right around the corner now – here’s everything you can expect in the trial:

Vanguard Beta Maps

  • Champion Hill
  • Hotel Royal
  • Gavutu
  • Red Star
  • Eagle’s Nest (weekend 2)

Game Modes

  • Champion Hill (Solos, Duos, Trios)
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Domination
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Patrol (Saturday of Weekend 1)
  • Search and Destroy (Weekend 2)


All of the weapons in the Vanguard Champion Hill alpha will be returning in the Beta, although Sledgehammer Games has not given a full list of all of the weapons available to players.

Additionally, players will have 10 loadout slots (12 for PlayStation players) to customize guns with up to 10 attachments in the Gunsmith, if this leak is correct.

However, players will only be able to level weapons up to level 30 during the beta, so not every attachment will be available.

Meanwhile, Vanguard will be bringing a new map with improved anti-cheat to Warzone. This will be great for frustrated fans of the Battle Royale game.
