Iconic Call of Duty map Shipment has made its highly anticipated Vanguard debut following the latest Preseason Patch.

Shipment’s origins can be traced back to one of the most beloved Call of Duty games of all time. Since appearing in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, fans have experienced several iterations of the classic map. Players enjoyed the most recent version in 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

This time, Shipment gets the World War II treatment. Of course, you can expect to encounter the natural chaos that is synonymous with the map. If you thought Das Haus was pure mayhem, just wait until you load into your first Vanguard Shipment match.
