Vanguard Small Map Mayhem is the latest limited time mode to bless Call of Duty Vanguard. The official description tags it as "Blitz and Assault pacing for Team Deathmatch and Domination modes on small maps". The Blitz and Assault pacing vary the size of matches, with Assault being your more typical Call of Duty experience with some room to breath, and Blitz being the more chaotic and target-filled version. Each match of Vanguard Small Map Mayhem will switch pacing types, which will change the size of the team from anywhere between 6v6 and 12v12. This selection excludes Tactical pacing which leans into a more tense and calculated match. Essentially if you want high kill game modes crammed into small maps, Vanguard Small Map Mayhem is for you.
