Does Call Of Duty Vanguard Campaign Level Up Weapons?

Call of Duty: Vanguard arrives with the usual offering of a campaign, multiplayer, and zombies – but not all of those modes will level up your weapons.

One of the most entertaining aspects of a new Call of Duty game is getting stuck into levelling up the weapons. There’s a massive arsenal to master in Call of Duty: Vanguard’s multiplayer. As per usual, all of the weapons have attachments and weapon camos to unlock.

Many of the weapons from multiplayer can be found and used in Call of Duty’s surprisingly fun campaign story mode. You can read our full impressions of the Vanguard campaign in our review piece. Sadly, while it’s possible to use several of the weapons from multiplayer, obtaining kills with them doesn’t advance their level in Vanguard’s other modes.

How to level up Vanguard weapons quickly

While it would be useful for your progress to be counted in single player, it does make some sense. Earning weapon XP while fighting against relatively easy AI bots might present an opportunity for players to exploit the game. Sledgehammer wouldn’t want players running around with golden camos on day one now, would they?

If you are looking to level up your weapons quickly, one other option is to try playing the zombies mode. Weapon kills obtained in zombies do count towards your online weapon progression and can be a quick way to earn some easy XP. Give it a try for yourself if you’re not feeling up to the challenge of multiplayer.

If you’re looking for a weapon to start with in Call of Duty: Vanguard, we’ve got you covered. Check out our guides to the best Assault Rifle, SMG, LMG, Shotgun, Marksman Rifle, and Sniper Rifle.
