Call Of Duty Vanguard Review Part 3: Multiplayer

The newest installment in the Call of Duty series is finally here, and it has a lot to offer. With its new multiplayer mode, however, comes some controversy surrounding how much “pay-to” content will be included.

Welcome to the third and last installment of our Call of Duty Vanguard review! We’ll cover the most popular component of the CoD series in the last portion of our review… Multiplayer! We both like playing it and despise it! At least, it seems to be the current tendency in Call of Duty games. Let’s get started without further ado!


The multiplayer mode in Call of Duty: Vanguard is adequate. It’s not a very memorable entry in the series. It seems to be pretty basic and has been done before. On one side, it seems like everyone wants the game to change, yet whenever it does, people grumble. When it seems like another copy and paste, on the other hand, everyone appears to grow irritated. While it may be the best-selling video game year after year, no matter how hard the producers try, they simply can’t manage to win us over. 


Vanguard isn’t anything new in my opinion, and it’s sad in the sense that it was delayed last year, and they poured four years on it. Granted, Sledgehammer Studios had a lot of staff changes, including leadership, but I can’t really blame them for not being more innovative this time. After four years, no. I’ll start with the positive and work my way down to the negative. Keep in mind that this is just my viewpoint, and it doesn’t have to agree with everyone else’s. It’s also not intended to be disparaging to people who like the game. 


Call-Of-Duty-Vanguard-Review-Part-3-MultiplayerOn every platform, this game’s graphics are unremarkable. It’s certainly nicer looking on a PS5 than on a PS4, but the change isn’t significant enough to make a difference. It looks better and all, but it could just as well have been launched on the PS4 and ignored the rest of the current-gen systems. It’s not horrible, but it falls short of expectations. 


With this title, the audio is rather nice. Footsteps sound a lot nicer now than they did a few years ago. When I’m playing games, I can notice the difference between my teammates and my opponents, which is really essential to me. It helps to hear them coming in from any direction as I’m going to the opposite side of the map to locate the opposition squad. I don’t always glance up and see the blue friendly markings since I don’t utilize my mini map as often as I should. 


I believe the sound of firearms shooting weapons and kill streaks has been restored to the appropriate level. Since Modern Warfare, I’ve believed the sound effects were too loud and overshadowed everything else in my headset, and after making modifications, I still found it too much. I’m aware that I’m not alone in my viewpoint, but I’m also aware that a sizable number of gamers disagree with me. Having said that, I’m really pleased with the audio settings.


Call-Of-Duty-Vanguard-Review-Part-3-MultiplayerThe controls are in perfect working order. Not that I’ve ever had an issue with controls. Everything is how it should be in terms of responsiveness. There is no ping system as far as I can tell, but maybe I haven’t worked it out yet. That may be the only thing I miss right now, but it’s certainly not a deal breaker. It’s really less of a distraction. 


Overall, it’s Call of Duty, and I believe that most of those who have been playing from the beginning have given up hope for the golden days of skill-based gaming. It is, nevertheless, entertaining. So long as you give yourself permission to appreciate it. So far, I’ve noticed that the game has more run-and-gun players than Cold War and Modern Warfare, which is refreshing, but it’s down to the players, not the game, so I can’t credit Sledgehammer for that. 


Vanguard: Multiplayer gets a 7 out of 10 from me. It’s not perfect, but it’ll suffice. I’m interested to hear what other people think about this game, so please share your ideas in the comments. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope to see you online soon!
