Call of Duty: Vanguard

Crazy Vanguard glitch lets players levitate above the map

Since launch, several glitches and bugs have been discovered in Vanguard. One of them takes players soaring into the sky.

Vanguard elevator glitch update

The return of an iconic Call of Duty glitch is giving Vanguard players a broken line of sight on enemies as they take to the sky.

Vanguard hasn’t felt like the smoothest gaming experience since its launch on November 5. Players have been quick to discover some game-breaking exploits that make Vanguard nearly unplayable. Although most issues have been addressed through recent patches, some still remain.

One of the issues yet to be fixed is the elevator glitch. After popping up weeks ago, its relevance diminished as other glitches came to prominence. However, this new clip showing the advantageous position players can get themselves in has renewed interest in the glitch.

This particular glitch traces its roots back to Modern Warfare 2. The glitch sees players ascend straight up into the sky emulating an elevator, hence the glitch’s name. There’s no doubt the devs are going to have a look at something this game-breaking.

As the player ascends, their view of the map changes to a top-down perspective. This gives players a clear view of all of the areas on the map including enemy players stomping around.

In the past, we’ve seen this glitch occur on the Oasis map as well as Sub Pens. Recently it has also popped up on close-quarters map Decoy. Odds are this glitch is accessible on just about every Vanguard map.

This clip perfectly explores the incredible advantage someone gains after rising to the sky. The player is equipped with a Sniper Rifle making long-range kills supremely easy to earn. In addition, the small nature of the map means that this player can practically see every enemy player who isn’t in a building.

To make matters worse, they are playing Search & Destroy. This makes the high ground advantage more impactful. With one life per round, players cannot respawn and eliminate the player in the sky. There probably has never been an easier way to guard S&D bomb sites.

With Vanguard Season 1 around the corner, Sledgehammer must be working hard to ensure a smooth rollout. Given the mixed player reaction to in-game issues since launch, a lot is riding on the success of Season 1.

There’s no doubt that Vanguard players will receive a major patch addressing the current glitches running rampant.

Warzone’s frustrating demon gun glitch is back in Vanguard

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.

Vanguard Terminator skin update patch notes

Sledgehammer Games have provided a Vanguard update on August 11 that patched a weapon attachment exploit and fixed a Dev Error bug in Season 4 Reloaded.

Vanguard devs Sledgehammer Games continue to update the game and provide players with fresh content. In addition to a playlist update arriving on August 11, players were also treated to a new update that provided a fix to several of the game’s latest bugs.

The update covers both multiplayer and zombies game modes as certain bugs were hampering the fun. A particularly annoying Dev Error should no longer plague players following the August 11 Vanguard update.

Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded

Vanguard Season 5 is fast approaching, but before we get a brand-new season of content with new weapons, maps, and Operators, Sledgehammer are dedicated to fixing current issues.

It seems an unintended exploit was allowing players to combine attachments from other weapons to achieve combinations that should not be possible. This would result in overpowered weapons running amok and the devs were quick to nerf the issue.

In addition, players will no longer have to deal with DEV ERROR 10308 that occurred on the USS Texas map.

Activision apologize for using artist’s design in now canceled Vanguard & Warzone skin

Activision have scrapped an unreleased Warzone and Vanguard skin after using an artist’s work without permission.

Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded skins

Activision admitted to the major misstep of using an artist’s work without permission. The original art was to feature in an upcoming Vanguard and Warzone skin that has since been axed.

Major content drops like new seasons or midseason updates deliver weapons, maps, and changes to Call of Duty games, but they also tend to bring brand-new skins to enjoy. Vanguard and Warzone have seen some noteworthy skins that certainly got players talking.

After all, who could forget the Armored Titan, or Godzilla and King Kong skins? At the start of Season 4 Reloaded, players also received a new Terminator crossover. However, teasers for Season 4 Reloaded also hinted at a mysterious wolf-like skin.

After the wolf skin was teased in an official Call of Duty blog post, it was later inexplicably removed and replaced from the very same post. It turns out, Activision used content that did not belong to them in order to create the aforementioned skin.

When the wolf skin was first teased, it certainly generated a ton of buzz, or rather raised a ton of eyebrows. The anthropomorphic Operator definitely sticks out in a WWII-era Call of Duty game. Nonetheless, fans were excited at the prospect of running around as a wolf in Warzone.

Unfortunately, that idea won’t come to fruition as Activision have confirmed that they completely removed the skin from their planned content drop for Season 4 Reloaded.

It seems Activision overstepping bounds is the reason behind the skin’s cancelation.

An artist claimed that the wolf skin, also known as Samoyed skin, was stolen without their permission. In a strange turn of events, Activision has issued an apology, seemingly confirming the artist’s claims.

In a statement, Activision admitted that they “regrettably erred in our process and have removed this imagery from the game,” apologizing for the misstep.

While fans may be disappointed to lose their chance at slaying in a furry wolf skin, most would agree that if the artist’s claims are legitimate, the greater injustice was corrected as nobody should have their work stolen without credit.
