Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Dead Drop glitch allows players to keep deploying high Killstreaks, and frustrated players are calling for the ‘game-breaking’ exploit to be removed.
Vanguard has been praised as one of the smoothest CoD launches ever, but a few bugs and glitches have got in the way. The Combat Pacing filter still doesn’t work properly and a player’s dog even turned on them. However, it’s the Dead Drop glitch that has players most frustrated.
This allows players to maintain their high killstreak after dying, causing games to be plagued with Attack Dogs and Bombing Runs. Fed-up players are demanding that Sledgehammer Games fix the issue as soon as possible.
Dead Drop is a Field Upgrade in Vanguard that allows players to maintain their Killstreak after dying. However, it’s not working as intended, with players being able to repeatedly call in the same streak.
The Call of Duty: Vanguard subreddit has been chock-full of players calling out the devs for the Dead Drop glitch still being in the game.
One post was particularly critical, saying that “it’s ruining the game.” The OP claims that the Dead Drop glitch “happens every other game” even though “the problem has been known about for weeks.”
Another user acknowledged that the devs have been on holiday, but said that the “Dead Drop bug is game breaking” and that Sledgehammer “should have addressed this by now.” They also brought up that there’s no mention of it on the official Trello board of known bugs and issues.
With the community complaining about the glitch so widely, it’s likely that it’s on Sledgehammer Games’ radar They were quick to patch out the unlimited armor glitch, so there should be a fix incoming.
There’s no guarantee when it will be fixed, but Season 1 launches on December 8, which will bring a host of changes to the Vanguard. Be sure to stay tuned to CharlieINTEL for the full patch notes.
And for more Vanguard, you can check out the leaks that suggest Infected and other classic modes will be arriving soon.
