The multiplayer aspect of Call of Duty: Vanguard features many things that need to be leveled up to unlock new cosmetics, and improve the quality of your loadout.
This can be incredibly time-consuming and you can be put at a major disadvantage if your weapons aren’t upgraded as they won’t be as strong as your opponents.
But, all is not lost as there is one method that will drastically speed up the grind and give you stronger weapons and perks much faster.
Here is how to level up fast in Call of Duty: Vanguard.
How to level up fast in Call of Duty Vanguard
With there being many weapons, 12 Operators at launch each with Progression and regular challenges, and the grind to get to Prestige, there is a lot to work on at the same time.
Although it will still be a huge grind to unlock and level up everything in the game, there is a way that can drastically speed things up.
Call of Duty: Vanguard brings the Zombies mode back to the series, and this can be used to speed up some of the grind and make leveling up much quicker.
Zombies can also be a good way to unlock Operators and each has a requirement for both regular multiplayer and Zombies, with the requirements for Zombies being much easier to complete for the most part.
To show how much faster it can be, here is an example of how much I leveled up in just one match of Zombies which lasted approximately 40 minutes.
- Leveled up from Rank 11 to 15
- Combat Shotgun leveled up from level 1 to 9
- NZ-41 leveled up from level 1 to 3
- STG44 leveled from level 27 to 31
- Solange leveled up from level 5 to 7
In the following match, I used the Combat Shotgun exclusively and played for almost exactly one hour and leveled it up from level 9 all the way to level 27.
If you’re a big fan of Zombies then this will be a fun way to level up fast in Vanguard, if you’re not then it could be a chore.
But, with many players already at Prestige 2, if you’re struggling to keep up with them and their upgraded weapons, this could be the best option for you.
