Call of Duty Vanguard Combat Pacing Explained

Sledgehammer shared more information about Call of Duty Vanguard's Combat Pacing feature during the multiplayer reveal. Combat Pacing lets you customize your matches and adjust the difficulty to suit your style and needs, among other things.

Vanguard included three Combat Pacing options: Tactical, Assault, and Blitz. It's unclear just yet whether Sledgehammer will introduce more in later updates.

You'll pick your Combat Pacing option before entering a lobby, and they're all accessible from the Quick Play menu.

Here's what each Combat Pacing style does.
