All Restricted Weapons and Items in Call of Duty: Vanguard Ranked Play

Here's what you can't use.

Ranked Play Beta was introduced with Season 2 of Call of Duty: Vanguard. The game mode incorporates the competitive settings rulesets of Call of Duty League (CDL). These CDL rules restrict the use of certain weapons, equipment, and perks that are deemed unfair by the professional teams.

All of these items are inaccessible and highlighted with a caution mark, which ensures that no player can ever equip them in their loadout. The following list mentions all restricted weapons and items in the ranked mode of Vanguard.
