An evolved form of the popular Gunsmith system from Modern Warfare will be one of the main focuses of the Call of Duty: Vanguard Create A Class ecosystem. A total of 10 attachments will be available in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Create A Class Gunsmith including a new Caliber option.

An example of the new Caliber option for the Vanguard Gunsmith is that Shotguns can now be outfitted with a Buck Slug. This Buck Slug “is a shell filled with short-range buckshot and a slug round for longer range,” according to the Call of Duty Blog.

In a major change from Black Ops Cold War, there will be no wildcards available for players to equip and use in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Create A Class system.

Most of the core aspects of the fan-favorite Call of Duty system will remain the same in Call of Duty: Vanguard Create A Class, as players will be able to equip a primary weapon, secondary weapon, lethal equipment, tactical equipment, and perks.

As you can see, there will be a bunch of options for players in the Vanguard Create a Class system, and we will update this hub with all of the latest information for Create A Class and Gunsmith when it is announced.
