Call of Duty Vanguard maps are bound to be, once again, a defining feature of the shooter title. Much like the rest of the franchise, Vanguard is bringing a wealth of locales to its multiplayer modes, giving players the very best playgrounds to shoot their foes to ribbons in.

The Call of Duty maps list this time around is actually a lot longer than expected, with 16 multiplayer maps joining the battle for now, with many more to come later down the line. So, without further ado, here's the Call of Duty Vanguard maps list in full.

Call Of Duty Vanguard Maps: Champion Hill Maps

Champion Hill, Vanguard’s new Gunfight/Battle Royale hybrid game mode, will have four playable maps on release. The designers tailored these maps specifically for Champion Hill.

We got a taste of the Champion Hill maps during the beta, and while the overall map may be large, the playable spaces are quite tight. The collective Champion Hill map is broken up into five sections, the Buy Station Area, Market, Airstrip, Courtyard, and Trainyard.

We should find out more on the remaining three Champion Hill maps as we get closer to the Call of Duty Vanguard release date.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Hotel Royal

Hotel Royal’s theme surrounds the liberation of Paris. The setting of this Vanguard map is the rooftop of a massive hotel. Battles on Hotel Royal will take place at night with air raid lights and fierce fires lighting the skies. Iconic monuments like the Eiffel Tower will be visible in the background. Hotel Royal will feature a three-lane layout, the classic Call of Duty map design adored by casuals and pros alike.

Call of Duty Vanguard Map: Gavutu

Gavutu is an island in Japan. This Vanguard map will present terrains such as caves, forests, oceans, and palm trees. A crashed naval landing craft in the middle of the island will serve as a major point of contention on the map. Gavutu will likely introduce various forms of inclement weather, highlighting Call of Duty: Vanguard’s new reactive environments.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Red Star

Red Star is a snow map based on the Battle of Stalingrad. This Vanguard map will feature classic Soviet aesthetic themes such as an urban plaza with a central fountain area. The enclosed portions of this map will be great for close-quarters combat while the surrounding buildings offer overlook positions for snipers.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Eagle's Nest

Click to enlarge

This Call of Duty Vanguard map featured in the beta. Taking place in a mountain range players traversed the snowy peak with centralised buildings. Distant mountains can be seen in your surroundings when players fight along the longer lines of sight. Swapping for something shorter range might be better suited inside the buildings, as it features tighter corridors.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Bocage

Click to enlarge

This Call of Duty Vanguard map will take place in a farm ranch in Northern France. Players will fight through farmhouses, barns and a house, which is decorated with some abandoned tanks from a previous battle. It is best suited for mid-to-close range combat and is a medium-sized map. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Das Haus

This Call of Duty Vanguard map takes place in a remote woodland training area in Germany. Exploring inside the training area will reveal a mock version of The White House' West Wing, which is superb for that SMG and shotgun gameplay. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Decoy

In yet another mock set up, Decoy features a small fake town where players will fight through homes and businesses. With more open outdoor areas, including a circular central area, this will be home to a great mix of both mid-to-close range combat in the roster of Call of Duty Vanguard maps.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Demyansk

Demyansk is another snowy map, and is made up of a small village featuring a church. With a river running through the map, skirmishes will be broke up into two separate areas, the western Church and the eastern Lumberyard. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Desert Siege

Click to enlarge

This map will feature in the finale of the North Africa campaign, but also features as one of the Call of Duty Vanguard maps. You'll be using sand dunes and rock formation as cover across this large map, which sees rails and oil fields spill across the desert. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Dome

Returning from World At World, this fan-favourite will return amongst the Call of Duty Vanguard maps. This bombed out building in Berlin, will feature the traditional asymmetrical arena design, while supposedly "reimagining" the original. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Numa Numa

Click to enlarge

This Call of Duty Vanguard map is based on the Battle of Pica Forks. You'll be fighting across a small-sized beach area, with a large machine-gun nest acting as the hardpoint of the whole map. 

 Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Castle

Click to enlarge

Castle is a medium-sized map located in Imperial Japan, and marks the second map returning from World At War. The map has unique structures to fight in like the Dojo, Shrine, and Watchtower. The lack of symmetry on Castle makes it a one-of-a-kind multiplayer experience. The aesthetics of Castle are also some of the most beautiful of any Call of Duty map.

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Shipment

Click to enlarge

From the chaotic pits of Modern Warfare, Shipment makes its return as one of the 16 Call of Duty Vanguard maps. This will be close-ranged madness, it will be great for those high-kill high-death games. If you need an SMG or shotgun levelling up in Vanguard, do it in this map. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Oasis

Click to enlarge

Based in Egypt, Oasis is a medium-sized map surrounded by ruins and an oasis lake. Oasis is filled with various chokepoints, to ensure long and hard fights over team advances. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Sub Pen 

Click to enlarge

The third and final (so far) map from World At War, Sub Pen brings this tight, and claustrophobic classic into the roster of Call of Duty Vanguard maps. With its large submarine at its centre, players can take the high or low ground in Sub Pen. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Maps: Tuscan

Click to enlarge

Tuscan is a medium-sized map which allows players to fight in interior areas as well as Roman ruins. You'll be familiarising yourself with the rooftops of this map, but with the smokes of war clouding the sky, there will be no sunbathing here. 

Call of Duty Vanguard: Berlin

Click to enlarge

One of the coolest of the Call of Duty Vanguard maps, Battle of Berlin features a ruined cityscape and is one of the largest maps in Vanguard. Players will be fighting through destroyed building, flank routes and can use stalled tanks for cover. 

That concludes the list of all confirmed Call of Vanguards maps. Vanguard will launch on November 5, however, the following month it will bring a massive update for Warzone too. Why not check out our Warzone Pacific map guide.
