A new update with important bug fixes is available

Just before the weekend, Sledgehammer Games released a new update for the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Vanguard. That should especially please those of you who had or have problems with the so-called buying rounds. In the past it could happen that after such a round you suddenly join the game without a second weapon or with your bare fists – a more than uncomfortable starting position.

Furthermore, the developers have made the spawn mechanics on some maps. In this regard, significantly fewer errors and problems should appear after installing the update. There have recently been several reports that players on the “Desert Siege” map suddenly appeared right next to an opponent. This should no longer happen in the future.

The current (English) patch notes for Call of Duty Vanguard at a glance:


  • Fixed a spawn trap in the cave on Numa Numa while playing Domination, Team Deathmatch, or Kill Confirmed
  • Increased the point-blank range for sniper challenges
  • Fixed spawning close to enemies on Desert Siege
