The Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer beta is currently taking place and players are starting to learn the ins and outs of the game. From creating custom loadouts with the new gunsmith to figuring out the maps, players have an ample amount of aspects to learn. However, one unknown aspect that many players might not know how to earn is the V2 Rocket killstreak.

Last seen in Call of Duty: WWII, the V2 Rocket is the mother of all killstreaks. It’s basically the nuke from Modern Warfare 2; players earn a set number of kills and detonate a bomb that ends the game. Although, the killstreak doesn’t even show up in the kill streak menu, so some players have no idea how many kills they need.

Earning a V2 Rocket in Vanguard multiplayer

Players who took part in the Champion Hill alpha for Vanguard might already know about the V2 Rocket. However, the way players earn it in standard multiplayer is completely different from Champion Hill.

In that particular game mode, players can acquire enough money from killing players to purchase the streak from a buy station. In regular multiplayer, players just need kills. The amount of kills needed to earn a V2 Rocket in multiplayer is 25.

Players should note that these can only be gun kills. Any other kills, like those acquired from another killstreak, do not count towards the V2 Rocket.

Another aspect of note is that the V2 Rocket is always selected for all players. In the killstreak menu, players won’t see the V2 Rocket as it’s hidden but always available to earn for any player. This means that, technically, players have a total of four killstreaks to earn in a single life. If players manage to earn themselves a V2 Rocket, the game they’re currently playing will end as every enemy is killed in the process.
