For the third year in a row, weapon blueprint codenames are back in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Inexplicably, sometimes while listed in-game, weapons are only shown by their codename. This happens especially often in the in-game store when browsing through bundles of cool-looking weapons. But sometimes, it’s difficult to know which gun you’re even looking at.

If you’re going to spend hard-earned money on a bundle to buy a cool gun, shouldn’t it be a gun that you know you want to use? Having to back out of the store or wherever else you see the codename and look it up in the weapons menu can be such a drag.

Use this handy guide below to always know which guns in Vanguard are which, regardless of whether it’s listed by its name or codename.
