Given that Treyarch developed the previous entry, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, many fans were expecting to wait at least another entry before finishing the Dark Aether storyline. In another break from tradition, Call of Duty: Vanguard would not only have its own full-fledged Zombies mode, but it would also be developed and supported by Treyarch for the next year. At launch, there will only be one map for the Zombies mode called "Der Anfang" or "The Beginning."
Zussman returns to duty in time for the American breakout Operation Cobra, where American forces reclaim the town of Marigny. The platoon is ordered by Colonel Davis (Matt Riedy) to conduct an operation with British Special Operations Executive officers Major Arthur Crowley (David Alpay) and Vivian Harris (Helen Sadler) to intercept a German armored train carrying V2-rockets. Daniels and Zussman derail the train before being escorted back to their squad by French Resistance leader Camille "Rousseau" Denis (Bella Dayne).
After recovering for eight weeks, Daniels refuses to abandon Zussman. He learns about the events that changed Pierson in the Battle of Kasserine Pass: instead of Pierson recklessly leading his men to their deaths, as believed, he disobeyed orders to retreat in a failed attempt to save part of his platoon. Daniels confronts Pierson and tears up his honorable discharge papers when Pierson doubts his notions of sacrifice. The platoon capture the last bridge over the Rhine. They head into Germany, liberating concentration camps in search of Zussman, eventually reaching the Berga concentration camp, which they find abandoned; the camp's survivors were sent on a death march. Daniels finds and saves Zussman by killing Metz before he can execute him.
After reuniting with the other three, Marie and the crew proceed further down into the village's hidden bunker, where Straub has set up his laboratory. There, they fend off against Straub's undead horde, as well as Richter, whose obsession on weaponization of Geistkraft puts him at odds with Straub. Eventually, the group recovers the artifact, the Hilt of Emperor Frederick Barbarossa's Sword. They then encounter the creature from earlier, a humanoid-shaped amalgam of numerous body parts sewn and stitched together, dubbed the Panzermörder (literal translation: 'Armor Killer'), with Klaus fused into the creature's chest. Using special magnetized batteries, the group manages to stun the Panzermörder and attach the batteries onto it. Richter's zeppelin, flying above the village, attempts to pull the batteries back, which pulls the creature along as well. The Panzermörder struggles to escape, and destroys the zeppelin and itself, freeing Klaus from its body. The Hilt's power somehow revives Klaus, but in a seemingly possessed state, he staggers into the village while ignoring Marie's pleas. He tells the crew to prevent "the Emperor"'s return, before activating a fire trap, disappearing in the engulfing flame.
Destructoid's Chris Moyse praised the game as a "satisfying experience" and the campaign as "one of the series' best in some time", but felt that "it also makes little effort to overhaul the brand as a whole, playing it incredibly safe when the opportunity for reinvention was right there for the taking." Polygon's Russ Frushtick generally praised the multiplayer, calling it "strong and enjoyable", but criticized the campaign, writing that "just about every mission feels like déjà vu, as if I'd played it before in another game" and that "Changing the time period so dramatically only helps to highlight how little has changed since the franchise's total re-imagining with Call of Duty 4." Jeff Gerstmann of Giant Bomb was more critical of the game, calling the characters "lifeless and generic" and the antagonists "faceless Nazis", stating that "the game doesn't really feel like it's doing anything cool to take advantage of its setting and time period" and summarising "despite all of Activision's big talk about "boots on the ground" action and how this was going to be some big deal, the setting change didn't bring any new and exciting inspiration with it. This feels like the most wheel-spinning, by-the-numbers Call of Duty they've made thus far."
The M4 tree, for instance, includes five guns: the M4 assault rifle, FTAC Recon battle rifle, 556 Icarus LMG, FSS Hurricane SMG, and M16 assault rifle. The FTAC Recon and 556 Icarus are easy enough since you only need to level up the M4 to rank 13 and 18, respectively, but the FSS Hurricane and M16 are larger time sinks. In order to unlock those weapons, you need to also level up the FTAC Recon and 556 Icarus to Levels 16 and 13, again respectively. And before you ask, yes, Modern Warfare 2 includes plenty of weapons that only be unlocked by leveling up items that are hidden behind rank grind walls of their own. The STB 556 assault rifle and X12 handgun are two such pieces of equipment.
You can select your Loadout before you start a match and use it during a game (this ability works only for a certain amount of time, not throughout an entire match). Take others' choices into consideration when you want to select your own Loadout - each ability is useful in different situations.
Like all of the Call of Duty games, Call of Duty: WWII will perform way better if you setup a port forward in your router before you start playing. There are many issues that setting up a port forward will help solve. Some of the known issues that plague many of the Call of Duty games are:
Like many other Battlefield games before it, Battlefield 2042 had a rough start. Especially with EA/Dice trying to do something a little different in the form of "specialists", but a couple of years on this Battlefield outing has been nicely honed and improved. And yes, the class system is back too.

A friendly Meuchler will spawn and run away from you and your objective is to find and shoot/ melee him 3 times. The map will be covered in fog and you only have a certain amount of time to find him before this step fails. He can spawn anywhere on the map but the submarine pen and your best chance to find him quickly is to listen for his screams. Once you have hit him for the 3rd time, this step is complete. 781b155fdc
