Sledgehammer Games' Call of Duty Vanguard is going to be brilliant and PlayStation has shared some new teasers that focus on four of the Operators we're going to be seeing in Vanguard and Warzone soon. Here's the latest.

UPDATE - New Operators confirmed and details offered

PlayStation has shared the following information about four of Vanguard's Operators... The Second World War has never been better represented.


Arthur Kingsley - Leader of the Task Force

  • The protagonist of Call of Duty Vanguard;
  • Leader of Task Force One and the Special Ops team we focus on;
  • "Unwavering devotion to the mission and compassion for his fellow soldiers";

Polina Petrova - Infamous sniper of legend

  • A Soviet sniper who's fighting for her home;
  • A unique story as the only main character where "war came to her";
  • "feared by the Nazis and idolised by the Russian soldiers";

Daniel Take Yatsu - Supportive sniper that fights for his friends

  • A Japanese American sniper who uses his marksmanship to protect his fellow soldiers;
  • A story deeply rooted in the most shameful chapters of American History: the internment of Japanese citizens in US Concentration Camps;
  • " he still fights to protect his fellow soldiers and for the nation he believes America could still be one day";

Padmavati Balan - Fierce soldier adept at jungle warfare

  • A woman who lost her homeland twice - once to colonialists and then again to fascists;
  • A story defined by the duality of being a peaceful citizen and a fearsome fighter;
  • " she eschews a romantic view of warfare, but won’t hesitate to demonstrate courage and leadership on the battlefield when called";

RECAP - The Battle of Verdansk & Vanguard's Reveal

"A new weapon is rolling into Verdansk...
"Assets in the field suggest an armored vehicle but intel is limited...
"Target arrival on location is 8/19...
"Squad up and work together to take it down.
" Intel from command indicates you will be rewarded for taking part in the #BattleOfVerdansk...
" New Weapon and Knife Blueprints, Bike Skin, Timepiece, and more...
"Join the fight, defeat the target, get to the Exfil and earn rewards."
"Target Incoming. A heavily armoured train is on route to Verdansk.
"Grab the TNT coordinate and use it at the ambush point...
"Schematics show turrets are weak points. Take them out, then take out the cars...
Squad up and work together to defeat the target."

TEASER - Official Pre-Reveal Trailer released

Activision has finally released their first fully complete teaser trailer for Call of Duty Vanguard to the public. It's essentially all the other teasers cut together, but it offers us an exciting look at what Sledgehammer Games has in mind when it comes to the direction Vanguard is going to take us.

It looks gritty, character-driven, and very exciting. You can check out the official teaser trailer below:

We should see something more cinematic later this week, following the Warzone Reveal Event.

Call of Duty: Vanguard teaser - Wade

The next Call of Duty: Vanguard tease has landed and this time it's for a character called Wade. Just like Polina, Wade appears to be based on a real-life war veteran, Captain Vernon L. Michael.


In this trailer, we get a close look at the patch that we saw in the Polina tease. We can just about make out that the patch reads 'Task Force Vanguard'. This may confirm the title of the game and suggests that this task force will be the characters that we follow throughout the game's campaign.

Call of Duty: Vanguard teaser - Polina

The second tease for Call of Duty: Vanguard has been revealed and is available to view on Twitter.

Much like the first teaser that was revealed, it's a very short clip consisting of a few cuts of images all from the same scene which in this case is a rifle set up beside a broken glass window.

We get a shot of a discarded army patch that reads 'Task Force' along the top but the bottom text is unreadable. The stock of the rifle also has some letters engraved into, NETPOBA, it but they don't appear to make up a word of English origin at least.


The reason it may be unreadable is that it's likely in Russian as the entire four-second teaser is supposedly a teaser for Vanguard character Polina Petrova. She is based on the real-life sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko who had 309 confirmed kills in WWII. This info comes from noted leaker @_Tom_Henderson_

The tease was only sent to a few Russian Call of Duty content creators.
