It has been months of leaks, rumors, and teases but the Call of Duty Vanguard trailer has officially been revealed. Through an in-game Warzone event, streamers and players took on Verdansk and gave some amazing reactions to the trailer and the announcement of an anti-cheat.
Rumors have been flying around for a while that the next Call of Duty title would be revealed through Warzone and that moment finally arrived.
The Warzone: Battle of Verdansk event took place on August 19, 2021. The game received a special playlist update that allowed players to queue into the event.
Players needed to work together to destroy a train, then run to the exfil location. Even though this sounds easy it took over 100,000 damage points to destroy the train. Completing these steps unlocked the Vanguard reveal trailer for everyone in the lobby and the rest will go down in history.

It wouldn’t be NoahJ456 if something didn’t go terribly wrong. While watching the Vanguard trailer his game decided to tab out, causing the streamer to miss about 10 seconds.
This could only happen to me…
