Vanguard Fans Plead Sledgehammer Games To Stop Ignoring The WWII Setting And Guns

Vanguard Fans Plead Sledgehammer Games To Stop Ignoring The WWII Setting And Guns
Sledgehammer Games

By this time in Call of Duty: Vanguard's life span, it's a little bit too late to stick with the realism vibes of World War II. Sledgehammer Games finally caved in to sticking anywhere near their intended timeline when the community pressured them into adding Trophy Systems to the game - if flame-engulfed Halloween operators and naked Attack of the Titan characters didn't already send that message.

It's all a little bit confusing over in Vanguard, and those players that have remained loyal to the game (and there are not many) are left simply scratching their heads. 

With so much futuristic content being slapped into the World War II trenches, Vanguard loyalists are now calling for Sledgehammer to calm the hell down and get back to basics by adding some classic guns that match the era of its setting.

Fans Want More WWII Content In Vanguard

The game started off with a fair bit of promise, mixing the speed and mechanics of Modern Warfare with a WWII palette and weapons such as the STG44 and MP40 - typical guns of that era. 

However, they soon forgot to continue this trend, and having 'given up' on multiplayer, there's a whole host of WWII guns that never made the game. As a last-gasp saloon, fans have now asked Sledgehammer to throw caution to the wind and throw in a bucket load of WWII guns into the game.

Popular weapons of the era such as the M3 Grease Gun, Browning, M1919, .50 cal, Springfield, and M1-Carbine, have all featured in the previous Call of Duty games and would be a welcome addition to Vanguard.

 

Is It Too Late For Vanguard Realism?

"I feel that this game was way better in Season 1 but then went off the rails. Return to WW2! We really more WW2 guns," one fan said. However, it might be too late, given that the franchise has moved towards the 70s with the addition of Snoop Dog and Fortune's Keep (which is apparently set in 1976).

Instead, popular guns of the 70s and 80s might be more suitable, akin to Black Ops Cold War. Might it be that we get an AK47 or M16? The latter would certainly fit into the current Warzone burst meta.

Whether Sledgehammer will give fans what they want on their fifth and final season is yet to be seen, although, considering the dramatically declining population, they might think it'd be wise to listen.
