Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone’s Festive Fervor Holiday event has landed, so here are all of the challenges and rewards, as well as the reward for conquering all six in either game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1 is here, and Call of Duty devs wasted no time in giving players another content drop. The Festive Fervor holiday event is here, bringing the Krampus monster to both games, as well as the Shipmas overhaul to Shipment.

There are also six challenges to complete in both Vanguard and Warzone, with each game having its own set of festive rewards. Plus, those who complete each challenge in each game will be able to unlock a new LMG blueprint.

Here are all of the Festive Fervor event challenges and their rewards.

Before we get stuck into the challenges, be aware that Raven Software have disabled Warzone’s Festive Fervor challenges after they weren’t tracking.

These will likely return soon, so when they do, here are all the Warzone Festive Fervor event challenges and their rewards:

  • Play Warzone for 7 hours – Double XP Token
  • Travel 25 miles in Warzone – Derailed Spray
  • Do 365 damage to Krampus in Warzone – Skullflake Emblem
  • Destroy 12 Elves in Warzone – Toy Gun Calling Card
  • Open 24 Holiday Crates in Warzone – Naughty List Emblem
  • Visit 8 Deck The Halls Tree Locations in Warzone – Gnome Wars Calling Card

Luckily, these challenges can all be completed naturally while playing Warzone Pacific. You can check out our guide on where to find Krampus but there’s a high chance you’ll complete all of these tasks before you hit the seven hours, and if not, you can just go back and finish them.

Vanguard Warzone Ol Timey Blueprint

Players who complete all six Festive Fervor challenges in either Warzone or Vanguard will unlock the Ol’ Timey Blueprint for the Type 11.

This Blueprint is Holiday-themed, colored in festive green, gold, and red design. It’s likely exclusive to the Festive Fervor event, so you’ll need to finish them before the event expires on January 4.

And those are all of the challenges and rewards in Warzone Pacific and Vanguard’s Festive Fervor event!

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes: Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes

Vanguard’s August 11 update patch notes delivered bug fixes for an attachment exploit and a Dev Error issue in Season 4 Reloaded.



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.

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes



  • USS Texas 1945
    • Addressed an issue that caused DEV ERROR 10308 to occur.


  • Seasonal Challenges will no longer be marked as complete if the requirements are unmet.


  • Addressed an exploit that allowed players to achieve unintended Attachment combinations.



  • Vargo-S
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Survivalist camouflage challenge from tracking when using specific magazine attachments.
  • Push Dagger
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Plague Diamond and Dark Aether camouflage and challenge requirements from being visible in the loadout menu.


  • Addressed a rare issue where players could become stuck in spectator mode when joining a match in progress as the joined player leaves.

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.

XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific carried on from where Cold War and Warzone left off by giving players limited-time windows of opportunity to increase the XP they can earn.

    • Double Weapon XP and Double Battle Pass XP

These special Double XP events are coming as part of Vanguard & Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded. With major weapon buffs and nerfs, changes to the Fortune’s Keep map, and the new Vargo-S AR there is plenty of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

  • PT – 10:00 AM
  • CT – 12:00 PM
