CoD: Vanguard Zombies is a great place to earn weapon XP so that you can level up your weapons, and a few players have discovered a trick that lets them do this quickly.
However, leveling up your weapons can take a while and players are always looking for ways to speed this up. Now, a few fans have found a trick that lets them earn weapon XP quickly in Vanguard Zombies.
Vanguard Zombies trick to level up weapons fast
Reddit user justanotherguy_171 highlighted this trick in CoD: Vanguard subreddit. It involves loading into a game and playing for a couple of minutes before leaving. Then you can into Vanguard Zombies to repeat this.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Hop into a game of Vanguard Zombies
- Eliminatie all the zombies in starting spawn
- Enter a “Transmit” portal and take out all 21 zombies
- Leave the game and rejoin to repeat these .
This will let you earn approximately 2,000 weapon XP in just a couple of minutes of playing. You can keep repeating this process to earn about 60,000 an hour and even more during Double XP weekends.
Vanguard’s primary weapons have 70 levels and you take around 150,000 XP to complete. This can several hours and players have previously complained about the “ridiculous” slow weapon XP leveling in the game.
This neat trick will help speed up that process quite a bit. Call of Duty data expert JGOD JGOD, who has maxed out all his Vanguard weapons, has also made use of this strategy in Vanguard.
This tactic will be extremely useful when trying to unlock the Atomic camo, so be sure to try it out the next time you hop into the game to earn some serious weapon XP quickly.

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.
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 Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes
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.
- 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.
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.
