JGOD Discovers The Most Overpowered Perk In Vanguard

The streamer labels 'Forward Intel' as the most broken perk right now in Call of Duty Vanguard.

Previously available in Call of Duty: WWII, the perk makes a comeback in Vanguard with the official description reading: "see indicators for enemy reinforcements on your minimap. Minimap shows a larger area".

Evidently, this allows users to see where enemies are about to spawn on their map.

JGOD gives his reasoning for Forward Intel, by stating that players can see where enemy spawns change on the map. Users can take advantage of these spawn flips by quickly turning around and spawn trapping the enemy team. Essentially, the perk gives you the upper hand in spawn locations, allowing you to pin down the opposing squad.

While it's certainly a broken perk right now, expect a patch to come very soon, similar to how the MP5 and Gallo SA12 were recently dampened.
