Call of Duty: Vanguard PC system requirements were revealed and Sledgehammer Games have gone an extra mile to detail specifications for different types of players.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is the newest title in Activision's long-running first-person shooter franchise. Sledgehammer Games leads the way for the first time since Call of Duty: WWII and brings the franchise back to that same setting. After years of dominating the console shooter genre, Call of Duty saw a massive resurgence in PC players thanks to not only Warzone, but the competitive scene transitioning to the platform as well.
