Alongside assault rifles and snipers, launchers have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, providing players with an option to deal a wealth of explosive damage against opposing players and any Killstreaks that might be causing problems during a match. Call of Duty: Vanguard is no different, with a couple of launchers available to use as part of a loadout.
With very little separating the two launchers available in the arsenal and with Season 2 slowly progressing, launchers have their place in specific situations but won't be appearing amongst the best Call of Duty Vanguard weapons anytime soon. With that said, find the very best launcher to use in our tier list! It's worth noting that this isn't a list of the very best weapons to use, but rather, a ranking of the Launcher category.

Call of Duty Vanguard Launcher Tier List
Having used the MK1 Launcher and the Panzerfaust, this is the definitive Launcher tier list for Vanguard multiplayer. Surprisingly, some possess very different characteristics to others, making it tricky to determine which is the very best to use.
The Bazooka can deal incredible amounts of damage and is the perfect choices when it comes to destroying any airborne Killstreaks or vehicles being operated by the opposing team. While its damage output is impressive, the lack of mobility combined with a slow reload speed often leads to players being caught out when navigating the map or attempting to load another rocket into the chamber.
The Panzerfaust is a disposable launcher and is much faster than any other launcher in the category, making it ideal to clear out a room packed with enemies or an enemy killstreak attempting to swing the game into the favour of the opposition.
There's little to separate the Bazooka and Panzerschreck but having used it on the odd occasion, we found the Panzerschreck to be worse, placing it into A-Tier alongside the MK11 Launcher. The mortars fired from the launcher do deal plenty of damage but with most players using Fortified, it's much easier to use your primary weapon to score kills.
