The announcement is finally here, and Call of Duty Vanguard is officially our 2021 release by Activision. After months of leaks, rumors, and teases, we can finally confirm that the franchise is returning to WW2 this November.
But before Vanguard’s release date rolls around, there’s a mysterious new game mode that Activision is pushing hard. Clearly, Champion Hill is meant to be the exciting new addition to Vanguard – but what is it exactly?
Recently, we heard that Champion Hill is getting 4 maps at launch, as opposed to the incredible amount of standard Multiplayer maps coming on Day 1.
We’re also getting a brand-new WW2 Warzone map with an in-built anti-cheat!

Vanguard Champion Hill Mode Explained
Vanguard’s Champion Hill game mode is a mixture of Battle Royale and Gunfight – but what does that look like? We’ve got all the details for you.
There’s been a lot of teasing for Champion Hill and very little official information to go around. Thankfully, JGOD has the answers for us, as usual.
Recently, the popular content creator was invited to get an early look at Vanguard gameplay. And having seen the new FPS in action, JGOD confirms reports that Vanguard looks stunning on next-gen consoles.
But he was also able to fill us in on what exactly takes place in Champion Hill modes.
According to the YouTuber, Champion Hill will pit a series of teams against each other, for example, 8 teams of Duos. Each Duo would face off against another team, in a series of 2v2 gunfights.

Teams each have a set amount of lives, with the objective is to be the final squad standing. Although you’ll start out with the same basic weapon (i.e. a pistol), between each round players will have the opportunity to purchase new guns, attachments, armor, and more.
However, if you die holding your treasured AK-47, expect it to fall into enemy hands. Champion Hill is a game of fast-paced gameplay, skill, and resource management.
Eventually, two teams will make it into the finals, and the winners of the final gunfight are the champions.
Perhaps this will be the next big game mode for Call of Duty fans. And, speaking of big and exciting modes, Vanguard Zombies is being developed by Treyarch this time around!
But with so much content to enjoy, it’s no wonder that Vanguard’s file size is by far the biggest Call of Duty yet…
Despite all this news, Vanguard’s trailer is already being review bombed with dislikes.
And Xbox fans claim they’re uninterested in Vanguard due to Halo and Battlefield 2042.
