Call of Duty: Vanguard Season Five

In Last Stand, the final season for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone, a cast of legendary Call of Duty villains are out for revenge

Launching August 24, Last Stand gathers Call of Duty’s most notorious villains for an epic finale, crammed with masses of free content for both Vanguard and Warzone. Deploy as one of four of the biggest villains in Call of Duty history — the charismatic Raul Menendez, the ruthless Khaled Al-Asad, the brainwashed Gabriel T. Rorke, and the merciless He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen. They’re hell-bent on revenge — if it’s the last thing they do.

NEW OPERATORS

Raul Menendez (Launch)

Raul Menendez was born in Nicaragua, where his childhood was clouded by the brutal revolution of US-backed Contras. His father founded the Menendez Cartel and was assassinated by the CIA at the height of his power, leaving Raul in charge. But it was the death of his sister Josephina that focused his rage, driving him to become a hostile political activist. His charisma and ruthlessness propelled him to leadership of the social movement turned terrorist organization, Cordis Die.

First appearing in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Menendez orchestrated a cyberattack against automated drones, turning them against major cities across the United States and China. Now, you can harness his wrath against your enemies as part of Task Force Tyrants.

 

Khaled Al-Asad (In-Season)

Khaled Al-Asad grew up in Urzikstan amid political strife. He was drawn to the words of Omar Sulaman and joined the Al-Qatala terrorist group. He was imprisoned but escaped after Sulaman’s death to take control of Al-Qatala. His leadership transformed the militants into an army as he acquired an arsenal for the invasion of Verdansk. Committed to the demise of Western power, Al-Asad launched gas attacks in Verdansk, breaking a fragile armistice between nations.

A Middle Eastern warlord and key antagonist throughout the Modern Warfare series, Al-Asad is the second of “The Four Horsemen,” outranked only by Vladimir Makarov himself.

 

Gabriel T. Rorke (In-Season)

Gabriel Rorke graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and became a captain in the Marines. During an assassination mission in Caracas, Venezuela, Rorke braved the flooding city to locate and kill General Diego Almagro, leader of the Federation. During the chaos of his squad’s extraction, Rorke was left behind. He was found by the Federation, who brainwashed away his loyalties, turning him into a man with an undying vendetta against his own.

The main antagonist of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Rorke formerly led the Ghosts before being turned against them, paving the way for the Federation’s occupation of the United States.

 

He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen (In-Season)

Seraph grew up in the Singapore Quarantine Zone as the daughter of a high-ranking officer in the 54 Immortals. She honored her lineage and excelled within the syndicate, becoming its youngest-ever enforcer. She is a living embodiment of the 54I’s will, strictly quelling dissent within its ranks while projecting the syndicate’s force and ambition wherever it’s needed. Her dedication and skills are unmatched, as she proved when she willingly offered her own arm in return for the honor of receiving a cybernetic limb from the 54I.

Seraph first appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops III as a playable Specialist. She is utterly devoted to furthering her father’s legacy by promoting the 54 Immortals’ objectives.

 

NEW WEAPONS

Available at launch

 

EX1

A prototype energy rifle effective at long range and highly customizable.

This prototype Energy Rifle leaves behind traditional ballistics in favor of a customizable battery system used to power its attacks. Effective at long range, the weapon requires a cooling off period after depleting its charge capacity. You don’t have to worry about running out of ammo, but get caught during the reload and you’re in trouble.

Equip the Heat Muzzle for extra charge capacity, insert a new Battery, and transform the EX1’s capabilities with the Burst Barrel or Charge Sniper Barrel. Its Gunsmith potential is impressive, with options for every scenario.

 

RA 225

This SMG has a high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame.

This lightweight SMG boasts a fast fire rate and quick handling, perfect for shredding enemies in close to midrange battles — if you can manage its upward kick. It’s great for objective play in tight areas, though you may want to pair it with a heavier-damage-dealing weapon when more firepower is needed.

It’s highly customizable via Gunsmith, too, with options for greater power, handling, and accuracy. Find the right balance and soon you’ll never want to be without this blazing SMG. However, keep your eyes out for extra ammo —you’ll need it.

 

Launch window

 

Valois Revolver

A combination knife and revolver that acts as both a lethal melee weapon and a pistol.

This rare weapon is a villain’s dream, capable of landing one-hit Melee eliminations while also holding six rounds in the chamber for extra versatility. Its damage isn’t remarkable, but it’ll do the job against a fleeing or damaged opponent.

Operators can obtain the Valois Revolver by purchasing it in a Bundle, available in Season Five, or by completing one of two in-game challenges:

In Multiplayer, get 15 Melee Kills.

In Zombies, get 1,000 Eliminations using Pistols that have been Pack-a-Punched.

 

Coming in-season

Earn two more weapons launching in the midseason update, the BP50 and the Lienna 57 Assault Rifles. That’s a total of five new weapons arriving in Last Stand, perfect for carrying out all of your villainous deeds.

 

NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS

Beheaded (Launch)

Navigate a war-torn Times Square in this post-apocalyptic small map, built for fast action. Battle under the neon lights outside famed Big Apple establishments, or take up position in Lady Liberty’s fallen head, race through her arms, and dash through the subway to flank your enemies.

 

Fortress (In-Season)

Deploy to the Mediterranean in this medium-sized map featuring close-quarters interiors with rooftop access that grant you power positions. Fight in a maritime graveyard, where ship remains litter the desert landscape. The eponymous fortress incorporates an old ship into its own design, creating a varied landscape to be exploited by savvy Operators.

 

THE ARCHON

From a cursed desert battlefield to the heart of the Dark Aether: pass the Trials, confront the Construct, and defeat the Archon in the epic conclusion of Vanguard Zombies.

The Final Battle Approaches: Get ready to return to Egypt and take on new quests in the finale of Vanguard Zombies following the tragic secrets unearthed at “Shi No Numa.” Gather crucial Intel, survive round after round of the undead, and face off against Kortifex the Deathless within the Dark Aether itself. You’ll need every advantage you can get, so be sure to hit up the Perk Fountains, Altar of Covenants, Tome of Rituals, and the Pack-a-Punch machine and prepare for a larger-than-life final battle.

Caldera’s Fate Lies in Your Hands

Legendary villains seek to sabotage Caldera. Will you aid them or defend the island? A big thanks goes out to Beenox for the Peak updates, Operation: Last Call, and the Heroes vs. Villains Community Event, and to our friends at Toys for Bob for developing the Rage Serum.

Peak — Volcanic POI Expansion

Heightened volcanic activity has been recorded at Caldera, with a major geological event occurring with the launch of Season Five. Battle around a transformed Peak as lava runs down the mountainside in all modes and shoots out over the island during Operation: Last Call.

New Caldera Gulag

Fight for redeployment in the new volcanic-themed Gulag. Best your opponent in this new face-off pit inspired by an old favorite and get another shot at securing victory.

New Weather and Lighting Changes

The storm has cleared on Caldera, the sunlight peeking through the volcano’s billowing smoke. Rebirth Island sees new lighting changes as well, featuring a warm and lush sunset casting a vibrant hue over the map.

 

New Items and Tactical Opportunities

Doomsday Station

Discover this seismic device found within Caldera’s primary Battle Royale game mode. Trigger the device and enemy helicopters arrive to surround the station, deploying enemy soldiers to attack your position. Remain close to the Doomsday Station and defend yourself for a chance at earning powerful items and a unique Watch cosmetic for your Operator.

Only one Doomsday Station will appear per match, with multiple possible spawn locations. Pay the required $10,000 to activate it and prepare for a thunderous fight.

Supply Box UAV

Activate the new Supply Box UAV Killstreak for assistance in tracking down more items. It will mark nearby unopened Supply Boxes on the player’s Tac Map for around 15 seconds. Find the Supply Box UAV in Supply Boxes or purchase one at a Buy Station.

Personal Supply Box

Track down this extremely rare crate with the assistance of the Supply Box UAV to acquire your favorite Loadout weapons in Warzone. Each squad member gets a huge XP boost as well.

Rage Serum

While engaged in a multitude of nefarious activities at the Doomsday Station, forces aligned with Raul Menendez appear to have discovered a new mineral at the core of Caldera. This mineral, when combined with additional chemicals and distilled, increases the volatility of those who inject it. Known as the Rage Serum, Recon Operators have reported small crates of Serum being shipped around the island.

This Field Upgrade allows you to become violently unstable, resulting in a viciously effective boost to your close-quarters fighting. Test subjects were shown to have superior melee damage, increased lunge distance, and enhanced stun power while fighting with melee weapons or fists. However, defensive forces have confirmed that while affected by Rage Serum, an Operator becomes louder, and seems to recoil with more confusion while stunned or flashed.

 

New Mode — Operation: Last Call

Operation: Last Call (Launch)

Cool things off or cause mayhem! In this limited-time mode inspired by Search and Destroy, you can choose to defend Caldera by defusing bombs around the island, or sabotage it by detonating the explosives at designated bomb sites. Witness two different outcomes, depending on your performance and your intent to cause chaos!

Lava Rock

Look above and look out — Lava Rocks are crashing into Caldera, and no one is safe from their volcanic fumes. Stay out of the landing zone to survive in this public event within Operation: Last Call. Check the Volcano Meter for a visual representation of current activity, also indicated by the increasingly smoky atmosphere throughout the match.

 

New Seasonal Event: Heroes vs. Villains

It’s Heroes vs. Villains in this new Community Event. Choose your side and lead them to victory. Collect Villain or Hero Tokens in all game modes by eliminating opponents and scavenging Supply Boxes, then enjoy a discount for Faction Bundles at the Buy Station. Any time you purchase a Faction Bundle, you’ll get a discount on one other item across all Buy Stations.

The winning team’s unique Weapon Blueprint will be given to everyone following the event. Players also have the chance to earn other exclusive rewards like the Legendary animated “One vs. One” Calling Card, the Hero’s or Villain’s Weapon Charm, the “Conflict Spike” Melee Weapon Blueprint, the “Time Duality” Watch, and more.
