Call of Duty: Vanguard returns to WWII, bringing an arsenal of classic weapons to multiplayer and Warzone. Here’s every confirmed weapon arriving with Vanguard’s launch in November.

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s story will take players to various theaters of WWII with North Africa, the Western Front, the Pacific, and the Eastern Front taking center stage.

This will allow for a wide range of weaponry, with fan-favorite German, British, and Japanese weapons available to upgrade and customize through the expanded Gunsmith System.

After Vanguard’s reveal, we’ve seen a complete campaign walkthrough, as well as had an entire weekend to play in the Alpha. This has revealed plenty of the upcoming weapons that will be available in Vanguard’s multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone.

Some players also got a pop-up that they had unlocked the M1 Bazooka while playing the Alpha. This is a staple for any WWII game, so we’ve included it in this list.

There was also the reveal trailer, which showed off the many theaters of war that Vanguard covers. Through this, we’ve been able to spot several Vanguard weapons that weren’t available in the Alpha but were available in the Beta and will likely be in the full game.
