It is always an exciting time in the Call of Duty community when the reveal and release of a new entry in the popular franchise are coming up, which is currently the case with Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Leaks have been coming in heavy regarding the reported WWII title that includes artwork and the game’s different editions and information regarding its Beta.

One of the most recent leaks that has surfaced for Call of Duty: Vanguard focuses on an array of reported key dates for the game that consists of its possible reveal, Alpha, Beta, Release, and Season 1 dates.

Call of Duty Vanguard Alpha Beta Release Season 1 Dates

According to a report from ModernWarzone via leaker Tom Henderson, the reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard will reportedly be taking place on August 19, 2021.

An Alpha for the game will reportedly occur between August 27 and 29, with a Playstation Beta following between September 10 and September 12.

The Open Beta will reportedly be taking place for Call of Duty: Vanguard between September 16 and 20. The leak also states that the release date for Vanguard will be taking place on November 5, with Season 1 reportedly scheduled to start on November 23.

DEADROP dev responds as fans accuse CoD of stealing skin from Dr Disrespect game

Dr Disrespect fans are convinced Activision copied a Variant his game for their latest Warzone skin, and a DEADROP dev has responded.

Doomslayer skin in Warzone and Vanguard

Activision dropped Warzone and Vanguard’s Tracer Pack Malware Ultra Skin but players immediately noticed a striking similarity with Dr Disrespect’s DEADROP, and it looks like it’s even prompted a response from a Midnight Society developer.

Not long after Activision had to apologize for copying artwork from an independent artist, plagiarism accusations are flying once again. This time concerning Vanguard and Warzone’s new Doomslayer skin which Dr Disrespect fans immediately recognized.

Dr Disrespect’s ‘vertical extraction shooter’ DEADROP is currently in development, and there have already been plenty of comparisons with Call of Duty — mostly from Doc himself. He’s previously said that Modern Warfare 2 can’t “match” DEADROP.

Those who have bought a DEADROP Founders Pass have received one of 10,000 “Variants,” which are unique in-game characters. Senior developers have shown off their Variants, and many think they are the inspiration for Call of Duty’s latest bundle.

The Tracer Pack Malware Ultra skin dropped in Warzone and Vanguard on August 15, featuring a hooded sci-fi character with a skull-faced digital visor. Those words could also be used to describe DEADROP founder Robert Bowling’s Variant, and players were quick to make the comparison.

“Damn, they had to scrap the Dog they ripped off then went straight for a DEADROP variant,” replied one Twitter user. “Looks like whoever created this skin TRIED to copy the Variant of one of the leaders of [Midnight Society],” commented another.

While not a direct response, Bowling, who’s an ex-Infinity Ward dev, tweeted: “At least name it after me.”

Not everyone was convinced that the skin was a straight copy though, as some said that it’s a classic sci-fi design that’s been around longer than DEADROP.

We’ll need to wait and see whether Activision respond to the accusations, but Doc fans are convinced. In the meantime, check out how NICKMERCS will be “brutally honest” if he thinks DEADROP is trash.

Vanguard devs confirm new round-based Zombies map for Season 5

Vanguard Zombies devs Treyarch have announced another round-based map will arrive with the Season 5 update.

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s devs brought the classic Shi No Numa with Season 4, and another round-based Zombies map will arrive with the Season 5 update.

Although being a continuation of the Dark Aether storyline from Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty players were less-than-impressed with Vanguard’s Zombies offering. The mode was slammed for dropping the round-based format and removing classic features, and even though Season 2’s Terra Maledicta brought the Ray Gun and Decimator Shield, the non-round-based map was labeled “boring.”

Fortunately, a round-based recreation of World at War’s Shi No Numa dropped in the Season 4 update, and now the devs will bring “The Archon” in Season 5.

Both Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 are set to arrive on Wednesday, August 24, bringing “The Archon” as a new Zombies round-based experience.

What this new map will look like is anyone’s guess, but the devs teased back in June that more round-based maps are coming to Vanguard and confirmed that “yes, it’s round-based.”

The Archon is the final map for Vanguard, as Treyarch confirmed that “Vanguard Zombies concludes in Season Five.”

We would expect this map to come with all of the features you’d expect in a Call of Duty Zombies map, such as a Main Quest Easter Egg and Wonder Weapon to build. It appears Kortifex, the main antagonist of Vanguard Zombies, will be the final boss as Treyarch tweeted that “Kortifex must die.”

Hopefully, this new Zombies map will please long-time Zombies players ahead of Modern Warfare 2’s beta and October 28 launch. But, Modern Warfare won’t have its own Zombies mode.

Warzone’s frustrating demon gun glitch is back in Vanguard

Vanguard weapon camos are being plagued by the infamous demon gun glitch which fills the screen with ruined textures.

Demon Gun Glitch in Vanguard

The demon gun glitch is one the most infamous bugs in Warzone and now reports are coming in of it ruining the textures of weapon camos in Call of Duty Vanguard again.

Warzone Pacific players have had to repeatedly deal with the frustrating demon gun glitch that blocks their screens with distorted textures, making it impossible for them to accurately aim their weapons.

This glitch has popped up at complete random numerous times and is now causing problems in CoD Vanguard again, as players are reporting the textures on their weapon camos being reduced to polygons.

Reddit user ‘EPURON’ encountered this glitch when using a weapon camo that was part of the Godzilla vs King Kong event. They then shared a clip showcasing this in the Vanguard subreddit.

Throughout the clip, the textures on the weapon camo were glitching, and the Redditor was unable to see anything through the optic when aiming down sights. They described the glitch as “polygon madness.”

While the textures looked bad when aiming down sights, they looked even worse in the killcam that played after the player was taken out. At that point, the entire screen was blocked by the glitch.

EPURON explained in the comments that this is their first time encountering the Demon Gun Glitch, and others brought up the times they had to deal with it back when Vanguard first launched.

This glitch has become infamous among Warzone Pacific and Vanguard players since it pops up repeatedly to cause mayhem on their screens and still hasn’t been removed for good after multiple update patches.
