If you're the type of Vanguard player that enjoys running around, flanking, and pushing the objective... Serpentine is going to be the Perk for you. This is the first post-launch Perk to be added to Vanguard and we have everything you need to know about how you can unlock it during Season One.
Serpentine - How to Unlock the new Perk?
If you want to unlock the new Serpentine Perk for Vanguard, you're going to need to start levelling the Season One Battle Pass as soon as you can.
Serpentine is going to be the free reward for reaching Tier 21 of the Season One Battle Pass in Vanguard - it's a Perk One option that's going to reduce all incoming damage while sprinting.
Here's what Call of Duty has had to say about this new Perk...
" Breaking out into a regular sprint slightly reduces all damage from ballistics and explosives, while Tactical Sprinting can cut damage by more than a quarter of its normal value."
Is Serpentine coming to Warzone Pacific?
At the moment, there's no information to suggest that Serpentine is coming to Warzone Pacific following the next title update and the release of Caldera.
Warzone is still going to be using the Perk options from Modern Warfare, despite the fact that it's going to be on the same engine as Call of Duty Vanguard. We could see Serpentine added to Warzone in some capacity in the future, though.
Loadout Options - When is this going to be handy?
As a Perk, Serpentine is going to be a fantastic option for anyone who favours an aggressive playstyle and could offer enough additional protection to help you improve your chances on Shipment and Das Haus.
If you're using Serpentine in your Perk One slot, here's what we recommend for the rest of your loadout.
Perk Two Options
- Tracker - Enemies leave behind footprints and Death Markers;
- Radar - Enemies appear on your mini-map when they fire an unsilenced weapon;
Perk Three Options
- Double Time - Doubles duration of Tactical Sprint and faster crouch move speed;
- Lightweight - Increases movement speed;
Vanguard Season One is due to start on December 8th on all platforms.
