These are the Call of Duty vanguard settings you need to change before loading into your very first Match of Champions Hill.
If you didn’t already know, Call of Duty and Activision are releasing Vanguard in a few weeks.
I played the game earlier this week, and it was an absolute ton of fun.
But when I loaded into the game and looked at the settings, some were confusing, and others were completely brand new.
So I created this article to go through the key settings. Save you a ton of time and headache trying to figure out the best Vanguard settings.
We have the basic controls in the settings menu, which is not too confusing; we have the horizontal and the vertical stick sensitivity.
It is worth noting that this game is on the M.W The 2019 Modern Warfare engine, the same engine as in Warzone.
So whatever your sensitivity is in those games, I highly recommend that you stay very close to that or use the same settings.
For example, if in Warzone you play 7 7.8, that’s what you should have on Vanguard.
Let’s get into it:
1. Button layout preset
I play on Tactical, and it has all the Standard presets in there. If you play on Standard, then you should know what presets are going to be there.
It’s all the same throughout all the call of duty games.
If you do not play on Tactical, I highly recommend that you make the switch. When you pair Tactical up with the two other settings I am sharing in this article, your movement will significantly improve on the map.
For those who don’t know what Tactical button layout preset is, it switches your crouch and melee buttons on your controller.
So the only thing that changes is your right stick and your circle, basically just making you crouch and slide by pressing down on the right stick.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with this. If not, try to use this with these two other settings, which we will discuss later in the article.
2. Aim response curve type
Here we have three settings available; Standard, linear and dynamic.
The Standard is a simple power curve map from the aim stick to the aim rate.
The linear is the aim stick mapping directly to the aim rate, and then dynamic is a reverse s curve mapping for fine aim rate control.
I do recommend, like I said, whatever you play in Warfare 2019 or Warzone, you use the same here. I play Standard.
Linear is just raw input from your controller.
3. Aim assist settings
The next setting I want to highlight is the aim assist settings. This game again has all the same analysis as Modern Warfare.
But it comes with a brand-new Aim assist that is special to Call of Duty Vanguard.
It’s the first time we’ve ever got a separate Call of Duty’s aim assist in another Call of Duty title.
So again, if you use the regular standard aim assist system as in Warzone. Use the same in Vanguard.
Apart from Standard Aim assisting settings, we also have Precision, similar to Modern Warfare’s Precision.
It’s more for accurate players and doesn’t slow down your aim nearly as much.
Lastly, we have the Focusing, which slows down your aim significantly more than the Standard and Precision.
This makes it better for newer players. Pro players sometimes use these vanguard hacks to improve their aim in the game.
4. Airborne mantle
The next gameplay setting is the Airborne mantle. I recommend that you change this setting to manual.
This is something that’s enabled by default.
It means if you have it on automatic when you jump in the air next to an object, your character will automatically mantle on top of it.
At first sight, this is an excellent feature, but I don’t recommend using it because eventually, you will be in a gunfight, and when you jump, it’s going to accidentally mantle you. Thus getting you killed.
I can’t tell you how many times this has happened in Warzone.
5. Automatic tactical sprint
The most critical setting for good movement in Call of Duty vanguard or any Call of Duty is Automatic tactical sprint.
All you have to do is click forward on the left stick; your character goes into the automatic tactical sprint.
It’s worth noting that you can refill your automatic tactical sprint instantaneously by doing two-slide cancels.
The first setting that I talked about was playing on the Tactical button layout very helpful.
The Automatic tactical sprint is the second part of getting better movement and slide cancel like a demon around the map.
Trust me. You want to play with the Automatic tactical sprint on.
6. Slide behavior
This is the last setting you need to change to improve your movement in Call of Duty Vanguard.
Typically, this setting is on hold, which means you have to hold the right stick down, but if you’re not playing on Tactical, hold the circle button to enter into a sliding motion.
If you want to slide or cancel efficiently, you need to change this from hold to tap, whereby you only have to tap the slide button and get into motion.
It’s much easier and faster that way.
Speed in Call of Duty is something that I try to explain to people.
Call of Duty is not for a tactical shooter or a slow shooter. It’s all about speed.
So anything in the settings, weapons, anything that can do to speed you up, I highly recommend taking advantage of it because that will give you the edge over the opponent’s
I hope you found this article valuable. If you have any other settings that you think should make a list, let me know in the comments.
