Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 introduces the brand-new Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle. Here’s how you can unlock this powerful weapon in both games.

The beginning of Vanguard Season 1 brings a host of new content for both it and Warzone, new operators, multiplayer maps, weapons, and the Pacific Caldera map for the series’ popular battle royale.

Season 1 will introduce five new weapons into the mix for Call of Duty fans, with everything from melee weapons to assault rifles. The most interesting addition is the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, which is set to be the most powerful sniper in the game.

You won’t want to miss out on your chance to get your hands on this weapon, so we’ve got everything you need to unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle in Vanguard & Warzone Season 1.

How to unlock Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle

The good news is that getting your hands on this powerful weapon is very straightforward, and won’t require you to complete any frustrating challenges.

To unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, all you need to do is reach Tier 31 in the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass.

That means you can earn the right to wield the weapon just by playing games. If grinding for the weapon doesn’t sound like your thing, you can choose to purchase premium skips to avoid playing matches and unlock the Gorenko straight away.

As soon as you hit Tier 31, the sniper rifle will be immediately added to your arsenal, and you’ll be able to add it to any loadout in Warzone or Vanguard.

While the Gorenko does have a slow fire rate and strong recoil, its damage is the highest in its category, which means it could become a replacement for the always-popular Kar98k with the right attachments.

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.

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

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.

“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.

Vanguard’s game-breaking ‘demon gun’ glitch is now ruining Multiplayer maps

Warzone’s notorious demon gun glitch has made its way to Vanguard and obstructed vision is making the game unplayable.

Published

on

The infamous demon gun visual glitch that has frustrated Warzone players with limited vision in the past has now made its way to Vanguard.

The demon gun glitch has a special place in Warzone glitch lore as the instantly recognizable spiky textures send players into fits of rage. Recently we’ve seen the immensely popular bug even make its way to Halo Infinite for a crossover that nobody asked for.

Now it seems the bug is intent on ruining the Multiplayer experience for Vanguard players as it appeared for the first time and subsequently made the game unplayable due to obscured vision.

For the time being, the issue seems to be prominent for PC players following the January 11 update. This is the latest in a long line of bugs to plague the Vanguard Multiplayer experience since launch.

Fatal_Overflow took to the Vanguard subreddit to share a clip of the ongoing issue. In Warzone it was common for the glitch to ruin the appearance of weapons but in this case, the issue in Vanguard seems to distort Multiplayer maps.

It’s clear to see how Shoot House is transformed into a mass of demon-like textures that makes taking down enemy players nearly impossible. With the game in this state, it’s difficult to imagine PC players dedicating hours to Multiplayer matches.

A community member offers a temporary fix for PC players in the comments of the post, “Revert your Nvidia driver to the December version. The January one is causing this for all pc players”.

Hopefully, Sledgehammer Games looks into the issue immediately as claims that this bug is occurring on console can also be found in the comments of the post which increases the number of players experiencing game-ruining glitches.


As of now, the bug is yet to appear on Sledgehammer’s Trello board but we’ll be sure to provide an update when the demon gun glitch is addressed.

For now check out, when players can expect CoD: Vanguard Season 2 and the Season 1 end date.
