Call of Duty Vanguard is the latest entry into the historic first-person shooter, and once again we're going back to WW2 with Sledgehammer Games leading the development.

In the leadup to the games release, you may want to make sure you have the correct PC components in order to run Vanguard.

Vanguard Minimum And Recommended Spec Requirements

In the leadup to most PC titles releasing, developers will typically unveil minimum and recommended specifications for your PC if you're looking to dive into the game.

It's good to get into the habit of checking these before purchasing a game, as you don't want to load up a brand new game, and have your PC not be able to run it optimally.

Sledgehammer has revealed these metric in the leadup to Vanguard's premier all around the world, and it appears that if you're rocking an old PC, then won't have any issues running Vanguard.

Below is a rundown of the minimum and recommended PC requirements for COD Vanguard.


  • Intel Core i3-4340/AMD FX-6300
  • 8GB RAM
  • 36 GB Storage
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960/AMD Radeon RX 470 GPU

  • 12GB RAM
  • 61 GB Storage
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060/AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU
