Warzone’s Battle Royale & Vanguard Royale modes merging in Season 2 Reloaded update

Vanguard Royale has been a fan-favorite addition, especially with the changes made in Warzone Pacific Season 2. However, Raven have confirmed that Vanguard Royale won’t return after the Reloaded update, with the devs merging Battle Royale and VG Royale together. 

Warzone’s Vanguard Royale offered players a purely WW2 experience, removing modern equipment such as Heartbeat Sensors and only allowing players to use Vanguard guns. Raven Software made changes to separate it from regular Battle Royale in Season 2, increasing the health to 150 and removing UAVs for a few weeks. 

Many prefer Vanguard Royale thanks to these changes, but it will be disappearing after the Warzone Season 2 Reloaded update. Raven Software will be merging Vanguard Royale with Battle Royale to create a single experience.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded is set to make even more major changes to CoD’s battle royale, with Gas Masks no longer making you fall to your death and Rebirth Reinforced bringing new POIs to Rebirth Island.

Although Vanguard Royale has been a huge success, Raven Software said that they “don’t want two different communities playing two different battle royales.” They explained that Vanguard Royale was an experimental mode, but “now it’s time to take the best of both and make one mode.”

Vanguard Royale will disappear from playlists alongside the Season 2 Reloaded update, where there will just be ‘Battle Royale’ with all squad sizes. 

They haven’t revealed all of the Vanguard Royale features that will hit Battle Royale, but we know that the 150 HP will arrive, as well as Big Game Bounties and new Public Events such as the Restock event.
