Vanguard Season 3 is in full swing, but players may already be looking at what we can expect over the rest of 2022. Here’s everything we know about Vanguard Season 4, including its release date, round-based Zombies map, and more.
But there’s still a lot more Vanguard content to come, with Season 4 arriving very soon. We’re taking a look at everything we know about Vanguard Season 4 so far, including the release date, Shi No Numa map, USS Texas, and more.
When is Vanguard Season 4? Season 3 end date
Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 4 goes live immediately after Season 3 concludes on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. The update will roll out on June 21, but the content will only be accessible the following day at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST.
Call of Duty confirmed the date when they revealed Season 4’s key art which shows off Warzone’s new Fortune’s Keep map. This is also when the Season 3 Battle Pass expires, so make sure you’ve earned all of the rewards ahead of June 22.
USS Texas coming to Vanguard in Season 4
USS Texas was a launch map from 2017’s WWII taking place on a Battleship where there are long-range fights down the sides with the ship’s interior suited for close-range combat.
“Embark on the High Seas in USS Texas 1945. Battle on the decks and in the interior spaces of USS Texas 1945, launching at the start of the new season.”
A second new map called ‘Desolation’ is also set to arrive, but this is expected with the Season 4 Reloaded update.
Round-based Shi No Numa arrives in Vanguard Zombies
Zombies players have been begging for Vanguard to receive a traditional round-based map, and it’s finally coming in Season 4 with a reimagining of World at War’s Shi No Numa.
This map remaster will bring an “all-new Main Quest and Side Quests, a new area to explore, a new Wonder Weapon Quest, the classic Flogger trap and Electro-Shock Defenses, remastered Easter Eggs, new Pack-a-Punch Camos, and a new Dark Aether narrative for the map.”
Treyarch confirmed that Shi No Numa will arrive at Season 4’s launch on Wednesday, June 22.
New Vanguard Season 4 weapons
At the start of Vanguard Season 4, players will be able to unlock the Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG through the Battle Pass. This will be the fourth SMG and second LMG added to Vanguard post-launch.
Sometime throughout Season 4, players will also be able to get their hands on a new melee weapon called the Push Dagger and the Vargo-S Assault Rifle.
Vanguard Season 4 Blueprint Gun Game mode
The classic Blueprint Gun Game mode will be making its way to Vanguard at the start of Season 4. Players will face off in a race to progress through all 18 Blueprint weapons as they search for kills.
As usual, one kill will allow you to progress to the next weapon while getting a melee kill will set players back one weapon.
There are no Killstreaks, Perks, or Loadouts allowed in this mode which means you’ll need to prove your dominance with a diverse set of weapons.
New Vanguard Season 4 Operators
Captain Butcher, Callum Hendry, and Ikenna Olowe are the members of Task Force Immortal arriving in Vanguard Season 4. Callum Hendry joins Butcher as another member of the British Special Forces.
Meanwhile, Ikenna Olowe is a top-tier strategist hailing from Nigeria. He is Task Force Immortal’s battlefield engineer and a versatile fighter at that. Both Hendry and Ikenna will only be available later on in Season 4, while Butcher will arrive on the season’s launch.
