Activision has provided a wealth of information regarding the Call of Duty Vanguard beta, including what content will be available to play through and when the open beta starts.

Multiplayer will be the focus of the new playtest, and it won’t be as limited as the one experienced in the Alpha.

Instead of just letting gamers experience Champion Hill, the Call of Duty Vanguard beta will offer several different modes to play through.

Some of these will be available during Weekend One and others during Weekend Two; these are the currently confirmed modes that will be available during the Vanguard beta:

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Domination
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Patrol (Kicking off Saturday of Weekend 1)
  • Search and Destroy (Weekend 2).

Activision has also confirmed that weapon wise, Core MP will allow gamers to level up weapons to level 30. Meanwhile, PlayStation players will get +2 custom loadout slots (12 total, 10 for other platforms).

A message from developers Sledgehammer Games adds: “In addition to the four new maps, six modes, and various features we’re bringing to the Vanguard Beta, we’re also delivering plenty of gameplay enhancements based on player feedback and internal data from the Alpha.

“We passionately believe in being transparent with our community, and we’re addressing feedback as soon as we can. Please know that some of the feedback received during the Alpha weekend was already in flight for the Beta build. As a result, some feedback we were able to address ahead of the Beta, while other changes will come at a later time.”


Activision has confirmed that the Call of Duty Vanguard beta will include both closed and open testing sessions.

The first Vanguard beta will kick off on Friday, September 10, at around 6pm BST on PS4 and PS5 consoles.

In total, the Vanguard beta will be held over two weekends: from Friday, September 10 to Monday, September 13, and Thursday, September 16 to Monday, September 20.

The first weekend – September 10 to September 13 – will be for PlayStation owners who have pre-ordered the game.

The second weekend will be considered an Open Beta in its entirety for PlayStation owners.

Those on other platforms will need to pre-order the game to access the first two days of the Beta (September 16 and 17), before it becomes an Open Beta for all platforms from Saturday, September 18 to Monday, September 20 at 10 AM PT.

So for anyone wondering, the Call of Duty Vanguard open beta will start on Xbox One and PC on September 18 at 6pm BST.

And for those wondering what new stuff will be available during the Vanguard beta, COD fans will be able to experience Patrol, a new game mode based on Hardpoint.

Patrol is an objective-based mode that features a scoring zone in near-constant motion; if Operators want to rack up points for their team, they should keep up and move around the map within this Patrol point.
