What Is Vanguard Royale In Warzone?

Vanguard Royale is a brand new WWII-themed mode available in Warzone as part of Vanguard’s Season One update.

The new game mode aims to focus on a few key elements, the first of which is dogfighting planes and anti-air combat. Players will be able to jump into fighter planes and take down your enemies from above, but watch out for the anti-aircraft guns located around Caldera.

Players will also find a ‘core Vanguard experience’ in the new Battle Royale mode, with a specific WWII ruleset and only Vanguard weapons, operators, vehicles, killstreaks and more allowed.

As well as specific rulesets, Vanguard Royale also includes new environmental hazards. Players will need to ensure they’re on the lookout for ‘Bombing Runs’, which occur throughout the duration of the game.

There are also some important gameplay changes compared to the normal Battle Royale mode, which are listed below:

  • Larger Initial Circle
    • The radii and times for Circle collapses have been rebalanced to accommodate dogfighting further into the mid-late game. The overall game length remains the same as Battle Royale.
  • Public Events
    • The new Public Event structure is as follows:
      • Circle 1
        • Weapon Crates or Cash Drops
      • Circle 2
        • Loadout Drops
      • Circle 3
        • Fire Sale
      • Circle 4
        • Weapon Crates or Cash Drops (High Probability)
        • Resurgence or Jailbreak or Loadout Drops (Low Probability)
      • Circle 5
        • Restock
      • Circle 6
        • Loadout Drops
      • Circle 7 & 8
        • Public Events conclude, you’re on your own!
