Game-breaking Vanguard skin turns players invisible

A new Operator skin in Vanguard has been found that can turn players invisible at certain ranges and angles.

Glitches and exploits are always factors that can occur at any time. Vanguard seems to have unintentionally created a new one as the new Constanze Operator skin can make her disappear altogether.

Even though Warzone Pacific’s Caldera map is now live, many players are still enjoying all that Vanguard has to offer. Besides, Vanguard is a great way for players to level up their favorite guns, such as the Automaton and Kar98k, outside of Warzone.

Vanguard has tons of amazing weapons and modes, but it also has many Operators and skins. Operator Constanze has a new skin in the Season 1 Battle Pass, and it apparently comes with the secret power of invisibility.

The most concerning thing about this invisibility glitch is that is presumably available to all Vanguard players who own the skin.

Tier 50 of the Vanguard Battle Pass unlocks the ‘Urbane’ Constanze skin, and Twitter user @Indivant has discovered another use for the skin.

In a game of Hardpoint on Tuscan, the player was running to the Hardpoint when they noticed one of their teammates’ avatars behaving erratically.

They noticed that when they moved backward and forwards, and from side to side, the new Constanze skin would disappear completely.

After some experimenting, they found that the disappearing was consistent, even commenting: “you can’t even tell he’s there.”

With the potential for this to be a universal glitch, we would expect Sledgehammer Games to be on the hunt for a fix almost immediately.

How to unlock RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard Season 5

Warzone and Vanguard’s new Season 5 SMG is set to deliver incredible mobility and a fast fire rate, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

RA 255 SMG Warzone Vanguard Season 5

The RA 225 SMG is making its way to Vanguard and Warzone during Season 5, and the weapon’s speed in tight spaces should be a valuable addition to both games.

With Season 5 set to act as the final chapter of Vanguard and Warzone before players move on to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, the RA 225 will be one of the last weapons to enter the fold.

We’ve seen a ton of post-launch Vanguard SMGs join the pool of weapons over the seasons, and it’s only right that players receive one final SMG before saying goodbye.

The new SMG will rely on a high fire rate and excellent mobility to dominate Season 5 of Warzone and Vanguard, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

How to unlock the RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard’s RA 225 SMG will arrive at the start of Season 5 on August 24, and it will be available through the Battle Pass. At the moment, we don’t know the exact tier that the weapon will become available, but it should be either 15 or 31 according to previous seasons.

The RA 225 SMG will be one of two weapons arriving via the Season 5 Battle Pass, with the EX1 being the other. These two weapons should be free unlocks that occupy tiers 15 and 31 of the Battle Pass.

The Call of Duty blog for the Season 5 roadmap explains that “this SMG has a high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame.” The RA 225 is a lightweight SMG, which means it should provide excellent mobility for those looking to finesse opponents in Warzone Season 5.

Although it does come with quick handling, its fast fire rate means that while it will be devastating in close-range gunfights, you will have to manage some upward recoil kick that the RA 225 displays.

Its base form doesn’t boast the highest firepower possible, but with the right attachments, you should be able to increase its damage and recoil control to your liking.

How to unlock Valois Revolver in Warzone and Vanguard Season 5

Here’s how to unlock the new Valois Revolver in Warzone and Vanguard Season 5, which acts as both a knife and pistol.

Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 5 brings a brand-new revolver that doubles up as a knife, so here’s how to unlock the Valois Revolver.

Season 5 arrives on August 24, wrapping up the Vanguard and Warzone storyline ahead of Modern Warfare 2’s launch. Classic villains have returned, setting off Caldera’s volcano which teases a fiery end for the Pacific Warzone map.

Alongside the classic weapons from both the original Modern Warfare 2 and Advanced Warfare, players can unlock the new Valois Revolver. This “combination knife and revolver that acts as both a lethal melee weapon and a pistol,” will be a powerful choice alongside Warzone’s new Rage Serum Field Upgrade, so here’s how to unlock it.

How to unlock the Valois Revolver in Warzone & Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard’s Valois Revolver arrives shortly after Season 5’s launch and can be unlocked through either a challenge or by purchasing the Store Bundle.

Here’s how to unlock the Valois Revolver in both multiplayer and Zombies:

  • In Multiplayer, get 15 Melee Kills
  • In Zombies, get 1,000 Eliminations using Pistols that have been Pack-a-Punched

Sledgehammer recommends that players take a Melee weapon into Season 5’s new Beheaded map, as it’s “a great map for closing the gap to your opponent.”

Similarly, they suggest jumping into the new The Archon Zombies map, as you can “hit that Pack-a-Punch early.”

The devs describe the Valois as “a villain’s dream,” as it’s capable of Meleeing opponents in only one hit “while also holding six rounds in the chamber for extra versatility.” They admit the “damage isn’t remarkable” though, “but it’ll do the job against a fleeing or damaged opponent.”
