Play Vanguard Multiplayer for free during the week of May 18 through May 24 Access all maps and modes, including the new Mayhem Multiplayer map, Arms Race, Ship Haus, and more.


In Classified Arms, the third season for Call of Duty: Vanguard, global Nebula attacks continue to threaten the balance of power. We need all the help we can get to turn the tide back in our favor.

Invite your friends and family to gear up and deploy during the one-week Free Access period beginning 10 AM on May 18 through 9 AM on May 24. Enjoy the entire Vanguard Multiplayer experience with all maps and modes open to Free Access players, including the Season Three launch map, Mayhem. Read on for the highlights.

Roll the Camera in Mayhem

Stomp around a 1950s monster movie set in the new Mayhem Multiplayer map. Despite the map’s tiny layout, you’ll feel absolutely gargantuan as you battle through a small-scale replica of a metropolis. Fight among the skyscrapers in the center of the map, surrounded by an outer path where you can traverse an ocean or move off-set.

Bring fast reflexes and a Trophy System. The fighting here is constant, and the added defense will keep you focused on your targets as opposed to dodging enemy grenades. Visit our Mayhem Multiplayer map guide for a full description, suggested Loadouts, and tips for surviving the chaos.

Lay Siege Across the Alps in Arms Race

Free Access players can also compete in Arms Race, the large-map objective mode first introduced in Season Two. Your goal: Capture all the bases to win.

Operators can respawn at captured bases and can access Buy Stations to beef up their toolset with additional armaments and abilities. Earn Cash by capturing objectives or collecting it off eliminated players to purchase weapons, equipment, Killstreaks, Field Upgrades, or even your own Custom Loadout.

Use vehicles to travel fast between bases, transport friendly Operators, and lay siege to enemy fortifications. Don’t forget to defend your own territory when out on the attack, and get to the Nebula drops first to retain the upper hand. The team that best coordinates their efforts between attack and defense will often win the day.

Classic Hits: Dome, Castle, Radar, and More

With full entry to the Multiplayer experience, Free Access players can also duke it out across Call of Duty® classics like Dome, Castle, Radar, and Shipment. Play the way you want with small-map Playlists like Ship Haus, which features constant battle, or set your own parameters using the Quick Play filter.

Vanguard Multiplayer Free Access begins on May 18 and ends on May 24. An additional download is required to play. See your platform for details on file size.

Rise on every front.

    Nah prefer to keep my unlimited broadband data

  • Game is trash, I bought it for $100, terrible graphics and gameplay. Modern Warfare 2019 looks and plays better, no idea how they stuffed this up so much.

    • On console? I won a key from TCL but it was for Xbox, I had to pay $10 money grab for the cross-gen upgrade to get reasonable graphics.

      • Yep on Xbox Series X.

        • Did you get the cross gen version or are you playing the original on backwards compatibility?

  • Your avatar is exactly what I'd think of if I wanted to marry a CoD devotee with an OzBargainer

    Take a damn +1 sir!

  • Just a suggestion - but some might find it helpful if you add this to the to the OP…. the screenshot and text of what I wrote in it - ?


    Also - note that you have to select an installation folder twice.
    First one seems to be for the 282mb installer, and the second for the game itself.

    thanks for the thread.

    Not worth the hard drive space. I still play Modern Warfare.

    • Do they ever have Free to Play weekends for COD on PC?

      • Not for the older games.

  • MW2019, should have offered that for free instead

  • Are any of the Modes/Maps better than the others?

    Is it just me or are those tiny maps just utterly random mayhem?

    Seems like it's much less about skill than chance?

    • Yeah it lived on my PC for about 15 minutes before I uninstalled it again.

      The first 5 minute just dying next 10 was at least killing as many as killed me if not more but just utter mayhem.

      Not my kind of game at all.

      Enjoyed the trials of Far Cry 6 and Division 2 a hell of a lot more. This was a waste for me.

  • Did anyone actually try this? I can't get it to work.

    It seems to go through the steps then at the end says "you can't install this game yet", then I get stuck in a loop where I say "play for free" and it jumps back a page or two, then rinse, repeat.



    Running the downloaded file a second time seems to put the game in the download queue. I mean it's been sitting on "Waiting" for 15 minutes not doing anything but I guess I'm one small step for man further.

    What a buggy launcher - Jeez.

    WAIT - It just changed to "waiting on another update" then told me to restart battle.net.

    I take it back it's an awesome launcher. Holy c&^p.

    EDIT 2

    All good I think it's stated downloading after restarting Batte.net and it needing to "The battle.net agent seems to have gone to sleep - attempting to wake".

    So the agent was just a little bored. That explains it.
