Call of Duty Vanguard Zombies will return to WW2 this year, and we may already know where the game’s first map will take us.
We’re only months away from the conclusion of the Black Ops Cold War lifespan and the launch of Call of Duty Vanguard. Although it seems to be an unpopular choice, Vanguard will take us back in time to WW2 once again, with Sledgehammer Games developing.
We recently had a chance to try out Vanguard for ourselves, through the Alpha testing weekend. And on first impression, players are calling Champion Hill boring.
On top of that, it seems that Vanguard’s visibility is incredibly poor too.
But when it comes to Zombies, things are sure to be more positive. After all, for the first time ever, Treyarch is developing the Zombies mode for Call of Duty Vanguard, despite not working on the rest of the title.
And because of that, we may already know some details about Call of Duty Vanguard’s first Zombies map, coming to the game at launch.
Vanguard Zombies Launch Map Revealed?
Thanks to teases left by Treyarch, we may already know the location of the first Vanguard Zombies map.
In the past, we’ve seen pieces of Zombies intel that teases Call of Duty Vanguard. This includes an intel sheet with a demonic rune on it, found in 1944.
This is most likely a hint at Vanguard Zombies, which appears to have a more demonic theme than its predecessor. And this same rune was eventually found as part of the Vanguard Zombies official logo, cementing the theory.
And with the addition of Season 5, Black Ops Cold War Zombies got some more intel added to its Onslaught mode on the Echelon map. Set in Teufelsberg, Berlin, Echelon may well be a key location on the next Vanguard Zombies map.
Built upon the ruins and debris of WW2, Echelon definitely has some secrets to hide. After all, the hill, known as Devil’s Mountain, crops up a few times in the new intel.
YouTuber TheGamingRevolution believes that Devil’s Mountain could hide yet another Project Endstation location to explore. And it’s not unlikely that we’ll end up there in Vanguard Zombies.

In one new piece of intel, one NSA analyst by the name of Jaworski refers to strange transmissions coming from beneath the Echelon Listening Station. Jaworski also reveals that the Devil’s Mountain is also on top of an unfinished Nazi military facility, which is where the signal is coming from.
In a piece of later intel, we learn that undead enemies did eventually storm Echelon. Jaworski reports that a strange indecipherable transmission has been playing for the last week.
The NSA analyst manages to survive, despite being trapped by a horde of zombies, and his story doesn’t end here. Later, Grigori Weaver receives a notice that the outbreak at Echelon has been neutralized, and the transmission is deciphered.
According to the letter writer, Heinrich Meyer, the message was sent by an entity claiming to be Jaworski’s wife Angela. The broadcast has Angela calling out for her husband, claiming to be trapped in a cold, dark place.
Meyer believes that the message came from the Forsaken who players encountered in Mauer Der Toten. The Forsaken acts as the Demonic Announcer in the Dark Aether storyline, which will continue in Vanguard Zombies.
Could we be heading to fight the Forsaken in the Project Endstation location before it gets buried under Devil’s Mountain? We’ll find out more about Vanguard Zombies this Halloween!
It also looks like Ghostface is coming to Warzone as a new Operator on All Hallows Eve.
And we just saw a new Nacht Der Untoten World Record after 300 hours of playtime!
