Call of Duty: Vanguard February 14 Update Introduces New Seasonal Event and New Perks

Vanguard Sledgehammer Games

Call of Duty: Vanguard received an update that added some exciting new content and also fixed many in-game issues. The highlights of this update include the introduction of Ranked Play Beta and Arms Race modes. That’s not the end of it, as developers have plans on adding more game modes in the future.

Seasonal Event

The Seasonal Event is back and this time it’s a Valentine’s Day event where players can run around the map as a teddy bear. To get the teddy bear skin, players just have to get the Flamenaut killstreak. This event will also have Double XP enabled, so players can use this to level up fast.

New Perks

This update also brings two new perks. Armory is one of the newest perks introduced to counter the Engineer. This perk is for players who like to support their team rather than getting all the kills. The second perk is called Mechanic which buffs the Field Upgrade charge time, a really good combination for players who want to complete challenges related to it.
