21 January 2022 - Ranked Play
The Call of Duty League has confirmed that Vanguard's hotly-anticipated ranked playlist will be arriving as part of the Season 2 update. The playlist is being developed by Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games and with high expectations, many players are looking forward to getting their competitive fix.
Vanguard Season 2 Start Date & Time
The latest Battle Pass is set to end at the beginning of February, more specifically February 2nd, but the new season will commence on February 14th after Sledgehammer Games revealed that it will continue to address various issues impacting the game.
Vanguard Season 2 Battle Pass
As with the start of any season, a brand-new Battle Pass complete with 100 Tiers of rewards will launch. Depending on the theme of the season, players will be able to get their hands on a range of weapon blueprints, Operator Skins, and more. Once we hear what's included, we will update this article with the latest information.
Vanguard Season 2 Operators
Operators have become a key part of the Call of Duty multiplayer experience and it's highly likely at least one Operator will be appearing when Season 2 gets underway. Clues as to which characters will be joining the roster have yet to be revealed but we know that one of them will unlock as soon as players purchase the Battle Pass.
Vanguard Season 2 Trailer
Prior to the start of a season, Activision typically releases a cinematic trailer overviewing all of the new content set to arrive in Vanguard. At the time of writing (January 7th, 2022), there are no signs of a trailer appearing anytime soon. We can expect a trailer to release towards the end of January, a few days before the update begins to roll out.
Vanguard Season 2 Guns & Weapons
Each season brings new guns and melee weapons into the arsenal, spicing up the ever-changing metagame. Season 1 saw the arrival of the Cooper Carbine assault rifle, Welgun submachine gun, and the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle, meaning there's a chance of a new LMG or Marksman Rifle to join the arsenal. We will update the hub as soon as we hear any intel on the new weapons expected to arrive.
