Call of Duty Vanguard Ranked Play Divisions & Ratings

One feature that has been missing from previous Ranked playlists in Call of Duty is a clear way of showing Skill Divisions and Ratings. The last title to do so was Call of Duty World War 2, which featured numerous divisions to separate players alongside an MMR rating which increased and decreased depending on the outcome of a match.

The MMR rating was well-received by players back in late 2016, and it looks like it could be making a return in 2022 for Vanguard.

That's all we know about Vanguard Ranked Play so far. As soon as we hear more news, we will update this article with all the latest information. Until then, check out the best STG 44 loadout to use in multiplayer and a list of all multiplayer maps available to play when Vanguard launches!
