The full build of Call of Duty: Vanguard is finally here and players can now access everything it has to offer. One of the larger aspects of any new title is the selection of killstreaks that multiplayer has to offer and the same is true in Vanguard. Sledgehammer Games has seemingly put a huge emphasis on killstreaks, delivering a wide variety of ways for players to eliminate enemies.
There are a decent amount of new streaks that weren’t available in the Vanguard beta. Below, fans can see all of those killstreaks along with the ones previously known.
Multiplayer killstreaks in Vanguard
There are 16 total killstreaks in Vanguard at its launch. This number likely won’t change for some time but Season 1 could introduce a new streak, as Black Ops Cold War did. The killstreaks in Vanguard multiplayer are fairly lethal in-game, so players are getting their money’s worth when earning a medium to high tier streak. The max streak that a player will need to go on is 12, which unlocks the highest killstreak in multiplayer.
All of the killstreaks:
- 3 kills: Intel
- 4 Kills: Care Package, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane
- 5 Kills: Glide Bomb, Mortar Barrage, WarMachine
- 6 Kills: Guard Dog, Strafing Run
- 7 Kills: Bombing Run, DeathMachine
- 8 Kills: Emergency Airdrop
- 9 Kills: Flamenaut
- 10 Kills: Attack Dogs, Firebombing Run
- 12 Kills: Local Informants
Out of all of the new killstreaks, Local Informants is the one that seems most enticing. This is essentially an Orbital VSAT, which allows players to see exactly where enemies are and their direction on the mini-map. The Firebombing Run is also interesting. It’s a 10 killstreak that acts like a Napalm Strike, leaving behind a long line of fire that will kill an enemy if they touch it. This is a terrific way to block enemies off from an objective or kill a large amount of them in one area.
Players have a plethora of options when it comes to their killstreak loadout in Vanguard. This freedom should allow players to post some high-kill games in multiplayer.
