The Season 6 Battle Pass for Call of Duty: War Zone expanded with Call of Duty: VanguardStg 44 and M1 Garand, which players can win for free ahead of the game’s official launch on November 5. Deck Games ” Obligations will have full integration with Raven Software’s free Battle Royale when it launches, as will both Modern war and Black Ops Cold War have had integrations with War zone. The developers have confirmed many aspects of that future integration, including a massive new battle royale map that will replace Verdansk, as well as additional post-launch maps, modes, and events. Vanguardlink with War zone is supposedly stronger than the past Obligations iterations, and the two will also share a new PC anti-cheat system developed by Raven Software.
Last week, StG 44 and M1 Garand fell into Warzone, probably by accident, after the sixth season update. The bug was quickly addressed and the weapons were removed from the Battle Royale. The American M1 Garand and the German StG 44 were visible in the War zone Gunsmith, although weapons could not be equipped in charges. One YouTuber, however, said that he was able to equip and use the Vanguard weapons that appeared briefly in War zone, although he was unable to inspect the weapons. Now those guns have officially dropped War zone and can be unlocked immediately from the Battle Pass.
According to Obligations, 24 new Battle Pass levels have been added to War zone and Black Ops Cold War, bringing Vanguard weapons and items that players can use immediately prior to the official launch of the game. All items can be won for free by playing War zone and Black Ops Cold War, including StG 44 and M1 Garand. Although Battle Pass levels can be won in any game, the Vanguard Weapons can only be equipped while playing Battle Royale. The developers also confirmed that the Gunsmith will not be available for both basic weapons, as well as weapon accessories and camos starting October 12. However, the functions will be enabled when Vanguard spear.
Following this release, War zoneThe Season 6 update provides the opportunity to level up the StG 44 and M1 Garand before November 5, as all weapon XP will be tracked and transferred to Vanguard when it falls. These levels will also be integrated into War zone when the official integration takes place later this year. However, until that time, neither weapon blueprints nor basic weapons can be edited. The free Battle Pass tiers also include a host of others Vanguard-inspired rewards, including two weapon blueprints for both the StG 44 and M1 Garand, as well as XP tokens, business cards, emblems, sprays, weapon charms and stickers. The last level of the battle pass, level 98, unlocks the “Clocked In” watch wrist accessory.
Developers Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games have teamed up to bring Vanguard contained in War zone early. Players now have a boost to level the StG 44 and M1 Garand, and can start incorporating those weapons into War zone‘s goal before Vanguardofficial launch. It is not yet known how the Battle Royale 100 weapon meta will change with the inclusion of weapons from the WWII era, though players now get a preview with two of those weapons.
