The latest release of Call of Duty Vanguard leaks has revealed thanks to one credible Call of Duty leaker.

Credible Call of Duty Twitter informant, @TheMW2Ghost, published a short series of tweets via their leak-specific profile on Saturday, June 12. These tweets allegedly contained the individual's first impressions after seeing unreleased footage of Call of Duty 2021—also known as "Vanguard."

Call of Duty Vanguard Leaks Include Weapons, Modes, and More

According to a pair of tweets published by TheMW2Ghost, Vanguard will have some serious World War II themes. Uniformed WW2 soldiers were present, as were weapons typically associated with the time period such as a "WW2 trench shotgun." Molotov cocktail explosives and the popular Kar98 rifle may also make their way into the game.

One of the maps headed to Vanguard could be based in Africa, if its appearance was anything to go by. TheMW2Ghost stressed that their opinion is based on how the map looked more than any real concrete clues. Whether or not their hunch is correct remains to be seen.

TheMW2Ghost also mentioned that the heads-up display (HUD) seemed to echo that of a previous title, "World at War." They neglected to mention how, exactly. However, we can likely assume it comes down to aspects such as radar display and other notifications.

Finally, having "saved the best for last," TheMW2Ghost revealed "an iteration of Headquarters *might* be coming back" for Vanguard. For those unaware, "Headquarters" was a third-person lobby where objectives and working with other players took precedent over standard PvP gameplay. Unfortunately, due to a plethora of issues at launch, the mode was eventually scrapped and hasn't seen the light of day since.

As always, DBLTAP cannot confirm the veracity of these rumors at the time of writing.
