Season 6 Battle Pass for Call of Duty: Warzone was expanded with Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s Stg 44 and M1 Garand, which players can earn for free prior to the game’s official launch on November 5th. Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty will have full integration with Raven Software’s free-to-play battle royale when it launches, as will both Modern warfare and Black Ops Cold War has had integrations with War zone. The developers have confirmed many aspects of the future integration, including a massive new Battle Royale map that will replace Verdansk, as well as additional maps, modes and events after the launch. Vanguardis linked with War zone is reportedly stronger than before Call of Duty iterations, and the two will also share a new PC anti-fraud system developed by Raven Software.
Last week, StG 44 and M1 Garand dropped in Warzone, probably by accident after the season six update. The bug was quickly corrected and the weapons were removed from Battle Royale. The American M1 Garand and German StG 44 were visible in War zone Gunsmith, although the cannons could not be equipped in loads. However, one YouTuber said he was able to equip and use Vanguard weapons that briefly appeared in War zone, even though he was unable to inspect the cannons. Now these weapons have officially fallen in War zone and can be unlocked immediately from Battle Pass.
According to Call of Duty, 24 new Battle Pass levels have been added to War zone and Black Ops Cold War, bring Vanguard weapons and items that players can use immediately before the game’s official launch. All items can be earned for free by playing War zone and Black Ops Cold War, including StG 44 and M1 Garand. Although Battle Pass levels can be earned in both games, Vanguard weapons can only be equipped while playing battle royale. Developers also confirmed that Gunsmith will not be available for both base weapons, as well as weapon attachments and camos from October 12th. However, the features will be activated when Vanguard launches.
After this launch, War zone‘s Season Six update allows you to level up the StG 44 and M1 Garand before November 5, as all Weapon XP will be tracked and transferred to Vanguard when it falls. These levels will also be integrated into War zone when the official integration takes place later in the year. Until these times, neither the weapons plans nor the base cannons can be edited. The free Battle Pass levels also contain an abundance of others Vanguard-inspired rewards, including two weapon plans for both StG 44 and M1 Garand, as well as XP tokens, calling cards, emblems, sprays, coats of arms and stickers. Battle Pass’s last level, level 98, unlocks the “Clocked In” Watch Wrist Accessory.
Developers Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games have teamed up to bring Vanguard content in War zone early. Players now have a start on leveling StG 44 and M1 Garand, and can start incorporating these weapons into War zoneis meta in front Vanguardis official launch. How battle royale’s 100-cannon meta will change with the inclusion of weapons from World War II is not yet known, although players will now get a preview of two such weapons.
