In the Call of Duty Vanguard Multiplayer preview, players were given access to various game modes on different maps.
About the game modes as known from COD: Vanguard MP preview:
- Tactical Patrol: The new Tactical Patrol game mode takes the players in a 6v6 situation. In this, players are supposed to take control of a moving capture zone, which was earlier stationary in Domination game mode. The first team to reach the score limit of 200 wins the match.
- Tactical Team Deathmatch: In the Tactical Team Deathmatch, the rules remain the same. The first team to reach a total of 200 player eliminations wins the match.
- Tactical Domination: The Domination game mode pushes the players in a 6v6 match with three static capture zones denoted by A, B, and C. The team to capture most zones and hold them with a final score of 200 wins the game.
- Tactical Kill Confirmed: Kill Confirmed game mode is similar to deathmatch, however, players need to confirm their kills by collecting dog tags. When played in a 6v6 mode, the players need to reach a combined score of 100 to clinch victory.
- Blitz Patrol: The blitz lobby for Call of Duty: Vanguard provides the players with a high-action stage that can contain 48 participants. All of them have to rush and take hold of the moving capture zone and score a total of 200 points to win the game.
- Blitz Team Deathmatch: Blitz deathmatch also provides a lobby of a maximum of 48 players. With the increase of player population in a deathmatch, the match can only last for few minutes making it fast and fun. To win in this game mode, players have to reach a combined score of 150 eliminations.
All the aforementioned game modes were played on four different maps: Gavutu, Hotel Royale, Red Star, and Eagle’s Nest.
