Vanguard players want simple QoL change to improve HUD

Vanguard players are asking for a quality of life change to help better understand what weapon they are picking up and using.

Published

on

Vanguard players are calling for the devs to make one simple change to the way the HUD works in order to make it easier to know which weapon they are holding.

Since the mid-season update, players have been asking the devs for a lot of changes and fixes for Vanguard. As well as fixes for bugs, such as the scam MP40 blueprint and demon gun glitch, players have also been asking for smaller, quality of life changes.

In general, these changes are small and don’t really impact gameplay. However, they do make the experience much smoother for players. The latest QoL change players want is to do with Vanguard’s HUD.

Reddit user masterchiefs put a post up on the Vanguard subreddit mentioning the QoL change they want to see in Vanguard, which players in the community clearly agree with as the post has over 300 upvotes at the time of writing this article.

The post is titled: “Show the gun’s name on the HUD, not blueprint name!” Clearly, this player would prefer to see the gun’s name on the bottom right of the HUD rather than its blueprint name, which can no doubt be confusing if you aren’t familiar with all the weapons and their blueprints.

Sometimes you may find yourself picking up a weapon that you have no idea about, as the blueprint has made the weapon look different. With no clear indication for what the weapon is, some players would prefer to see the gun’s original name.

As stated in the post, the player feels as if Vanguard should follow the format Black Ops Cold War set out, the one “that shows the name of the gun all the time, not a white sketch, not the blueprint’s name that disappears after 1 second, just the name of the gun, that’s it.”

Some of the comments under the post also agree, as well as bringing up another issue about the alphabetical code-names for the game’s weapons: “This s*** is annoying, along with naming guns after the phonetic alphabet. Just use the guns name? I’m almost 100% certain they did this to confuse or trick people into spending money somehow.”


Hopefully, the devs can come to realize how many players wish for this small QoL change and bring it to the game. For now, check out the dev’s response to player frustrations.

CoD Points price: How to buy, spend & do they carry over

CoD Points are the official currency of Call of Duty. Check out CoD Point prices, where to buy them, and whether they transfer between games.

Published

on

Activision’s in-game currency lets players purchase cosmetics for their characters, and we’ve got everything you need to know about CoD Points prices, how to buy them, and all the items you can spend them on.

Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game, requiring players to spend their own currency named CoD Points to acquire them.

CoD Points can be purchased in-game using the menu systems in games like Vanguard or Warzone or through console marketplaces like the PS Store or Xbox Marketplace.

The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. With Vanguard and Warzone offering special Attack on Titan and Christmas skins as well as unique weapon Blueprints for popular weapons, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend CoD Points.

CoD Points prices

There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying CoD Points that are tailored to different needs.

Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas others need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.

Here are the different prices for the various CoD Points bundles:

  • 200 CoD Points: $1.99 / £1.79
  • 500 CoD Points: $4.99 / £4.31
  • 1,000 (+100 Bonus) CoD Points: $9.99 / £8.49
  • 2,000 (+400 Bonus) CoD Points: $19.99 / £16.79
  • 4,000 (+1,000 Bonus) CoD Points: $39.99 / £34.99
  • 7,000 (+2,500 Bonus) CoD Points: $74.99 / £69.99
  • 10,000 (+3,000 Bonus) CoD Points: $99.99 / £84.99
  • 15,000 (+6,000 Bonus) CoD Points: $149.99 / £123.99

How to buy COD Points

You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.

There are four ways you can buy COD Points:

  • PC players can purchase CoD Points on the Battle.net website
  • PS4 & PS5 players can purchase CoD Points in the PS Store on their console, or on the PlayStation website
  • Xbox Series X, Series S, or One players can buy CoD Points on the Xbox Marketplace on their console, or the official Microsoft Store website
  • Select physical retailers stock vouchers and gift cards with a code that players can redeem for CoD Points.

Where to spend CoD Points

Spending your CoD Points is incredibly easy, with players able to purchase cosmetic bundles and Blueprints in the in-game store.

The stores are available in Vanguard, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare, so you can kit out your character regardless of your preferred title.

Do CoD Points carry over across games?

The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.

Players who still have CoD Points in their account from Black Ops Cold War don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when turning to Vanguard.

What can I buy with COD Points?

Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.

Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:

Bundles

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

Also, check out when Vanguard Season 2 and Warzone Pacific Season 2 are set to begin.

“Scam” Vanguard MP40 Blueprint gives players a completely different gun

Players are calling the new Rune MP40 Blueprint a “scam” after the weapon fails to load into Vanguard Multiplayer matches.

Published

on

For the second time in Vanguard, an MP40 weapon Blueprint is failing to appear in-game as advertised, leading to outrage for anyone who purchased the Graveyard Shift bundle.

Thanks to an incredibly unique design, Vanguard players were eager to get their hands on the Rune MP40 blueprint that is a part of the Graveyard Shift bundle. The Call of Duty developers deserve credit for such a detailed and eyecatching design.

Unfortunately, the Rune MP40 blueprint is completely broken and does not spawn in as the correct weapon in Vanguard leaving players who purchased the bundle for 2400 CoD points furious with the outcome.

Players who equip the Rune MP40 Blueprint to one of their classes will not be able to use the weapon in Multiplayer. Instead, the weapon will spawn in as the STG44.

Players can’t help but feel “scammed” after the blueprint doesn’t even render in Vanguard Multiplayer matches. The clip below showcases the strange shapeshifting weapon blueprint as it continuously turns into the STG44.

As you can see in the video, no matter the amount of times the player selects the Rune Blueprint, it reverts to the STG44 in Vanguard.

The fact that the weapon changes into an entirely different one is baffling but players have found a quick fix to temporarily alleviate the issue.

How to fix broken MP40 Rune Blueprint

There’s no doubt that Sledgehammer will work on alleviating this issue but in the meantime, players can fix the Blueprint by removing certain attachments. ElvisCOD took to Twitter to detail the required steps.

Removing the Removed Stock attachment will stop the MP40 Blueprint from turning into the STG44. Furthermore for the dismemberment animations to work players will have to equip the Lengthened ammo type and remove the magazine.

Of course, forcing players to make these attachment changes is frustrating for those who paid for the bundle and a permanent fix should be a top priority for Sledgehammer Games.

Warzone players will be pleased to hear that this issue has not made its way to the battle royale as the Blueprint works perfectly in Warzone and Zombies.
