Tactical, Blitz, and Standard Modes in Call of Duty: Vanguard Explained
A new feature introduced as aforementioned is ‘combat pacing’ which effectively allows players to decide the individual intensity of their game. The following is all the modes that are available with some background information on each one:
- Tactical – The classic 6v6 player experience.
- Assault – Balanced combat pacing that gives you enough room to breathe and a lot of targets
to kill. In the multiplayer beta, player counts will vary between 20-28 players.
- Blitz – Includes high action lobbies where the intensity is cranked up with player numbers even ranging from 28-48 players in a match.
Now that you have a base overview of each mode, we will break down each one into more detail. The Call of Duty: Vanguard combat pacing modes will give players a fresh new spin on the multiplayer and offer something new to fans.
The ‘Tactical’ mode is as it says on the tin, a classic experience without any changes to the core matches you are used to, those who prefer things for the multiplayer to stay similar throughout multiple instalments may prefer this mode.
On the other hand, the ‘Assault’ mode will increase the player count to 10 versus 10, 12 versus 12, or even higher player numbers; those who enjoy large scale battles with plenty of players to eliminate will enjoy this addition to the combat pacing modes.
Finally, ‘Blitz’ will offer intense lobbies with up to 48 players in matches and all-out chaos on the battlefield for players to excitingly revel within and enjoy the chaotic action.
That is everything you need to know for the time being about Call of Duty: Vanguard Combat Pacing. Will you be taking part in these new modes?
