An Attack on Titan bundle is making its way to Vanguard and Warzone Pacific. Here is everything you need to know about the collaboration including the release date, bundle content, price, and leaks.

Call of Duty developers released an update on December 15 which addressed bug fixes and weapon balancing. As a result of the update, it appears as though some information concerning a store bundle was revealed earlier than anticipated. 

We now have confirmation that the Attack on Titan bundle will be making its way to Call of Duty via the first update of 2022. It’s safe to say anticipation is understandably high for the Attack on Titan x Call of Duty crossover.

Attack on Titan is one of the most successful original manga and anime of the past ten years. The manga has sold over 100 million copies, making it one of the best-selling series of all time. 

Outside of Japan, the Attack on Titan craze truly came to fruition thanks to the critical and commercial success of the anime’s first season. Attack on Titan is a massive global brand that would represent one of the biggest collaborations in Call of Duty history.

Thanks to the image and bundle name revealed via the Call of Duty blog, we know the content will focus on Levi, also known as Captain Levi.

Once we know more about the bundle we’ll be sure to update its cost. Vanguard bundles have been known to cost between 1,200 and 2,400 CoD points on average. Although, since this is a premium collaboration, players can anticipate a price increase.

For first-time buyers, 2,400 CoD points equate to roughly $20 USD.

AoT bundle content

Levi is by far the most beloved AoT character having placed first in three of four character popularity polls. The bundle is titled “The Tracer Pack: Attack on Titan — Levi Edition Bundle”. 

The Operator Skin in the bundle is titled Survey Corps and makes no mention of Levi but is instead worn by Vanguard’s Daniel Yatsu. Players will be able to show off three unique AoT-themed animations via finishing move, MVP highlight, and highlight intro.

Those who purchase the AoT bundle will also be able to equip the iconic Wings of Freedom logo as their emblem. The Secret Keeper charm alludes to Eren Yeager’s infamous basement key.

In terms of weapons, the standout item is the Titan Piercer melee weapon that is modeled after the weapons used to kill Titans in the anime and manga. In addition, players will also receive the Historia and Ymir Curse weapon blueprints.

DEADROP dev responds as fans accuse CoD of stealing skin from Dr Disrespect game

Dr Disrespect fans are convinced Activision copied a Variant his game for their latest Warzone skin, and a DEADROP dev has responded.



Doomslayer skin in Warzone and Vanguard

Activision dropped Warzone and Vanguard’s Tracer Pack Malware Ultra Skin but players immediately noticed a striking similarity with Dr Disrespect’s DEADROP, and it looks like it’s even prompted a response from a Midnight Society developer.

Not long after Activision had to apologize for copying artwork from an independent artist, plagiarism accusations are flying once again. This time concerning Vanguard and Warzone’s new Doomslayer skin which Dr Disrespect fans immediately recognized.

Dr Disrespect’s ‘vertical extraction shooter’ DEADROP is currently in development, and there have already been plenty of comparisons with Call of Duty — mostly from Doc himself. He’s previously said that Modern Warfare 2 can’t “match” DEADROP.

Those who have bought a DEADROP Founders Pass have received one of 10,000 “Variants,” which are unique in-game characters. Senior developers have shown off their Variants, and many think they are the inspiration for Call of Duty’s latest bundle.

The Tracer Pack Malware Ultra skin dropped in Warzone and Vanguard on August 15, featuring a hooded sci-fi character with a skull-faced digital visor. Those words could also be used to describe DEADROP founder Robert Bowling’s Variant, and players were quick to make the comparison.

“Damn, they had to scrap the Dog they ripped off then went straight for a DEADROP variant,” replied one Twitter user. “Looks like whoever created this skin TRIED to copy the Variant of one of the leaders of [Midnight Society],” commented another.

While not a direct response, Bowling, who’s an ex-Infinity Ward dev, tweeted: “At least name it after me.”

Not everyone was convinced that the skin was a straight copy though, as some said that it’s a classic sci-fi design that’s been around longer than DEADROP.

We’ll need to wait and see whether Activision respond to the accusations, but Doc fans are convinced. In the meantime, check out how NICKMERCS will be “brutally honest” if he thinks DEADROP is trash.

Vanguard devs confirm new round-based Zombies map for Season 5

Vanguard Zombies devs Treyarch have announced another round-based map will arrive with the Season 5 update.

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s devs brought the classic Shi No Numa with Season 4, and another round-based Zombies map will arrive with the Season 5 update.

Although being a continuation of the Dark Aether storyline from Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty players were less-than-impressed with Vanguard’s Zombies offering. The mode was slammed for dropping the round-based format and removing classic features, and even though Season 2’s Terra Maledicta brought the Ray Gun and Decimator Shield, the non-round-based map was labeled “boring.”

Fortunately, a round-based recreation of World at War’s Shi No Numa dropped in the Season 4 update, and now the devs will bring “The Archon” in Season 5.

Both Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 are set to arrive on Wednesday, August 24, bringing “The Archon” as a new Zombies round-based experience.

What this new map will look like is anyone’s guess, but the devs teased back in June that more round-based maps are coming to Vanguard and confirmed that “yes, it’s round-based.”

The Archon is the final map for Vanguard, as Treyarch confirmed that “Vanguard Zombies concludes in Season Five.”

We would expect this map to come with all of the features you’d expect in a Call of Duty Zombies map, such as a Main Quest Easter Egg and Wonder Weapon to build. It appears Kortifex, the main antagonist of Vanguard Zombies, will be the final boss as Treyarch tweeted that “Kortifex must die.”

Hopefully, this new Zombies map will please long-time Zombies players ahead of Modern Warfare 2’s beta and October 28 launch. But, Modern Warfare won’t have its own Zombies mode.

Warzone’s frustrating demon gun glitch is back in Vanguard

Vanguard weapon camos are being plagued by the infamous demon gun glitch which fills the screen with ruined textures.



Demon Gun Glitch in Vanguard

The demon gun glitch is one the most infamous bugs in Warzone and now reports are coming in of it ruining the textures of weapon camos in Call of Duty Vanguard again.

Warzone Pacific players have had to repeatedly deal with the frustrating demon gun glitch that blocks their screens with distorted textures, making it impossible for them to accurately aim their weapons.

This glitch has popped up at complete random numerous times and is now causing problems in CoD Vanguard again, as players are reporting the textures on their weapon camos being reduced to polygons.

Reddit user ‘EPURON’ encountered this glitch when using a weapon camo that was part of the Godzilla vs King Kong event. They then shared a clip showcasing this in the Vanguard subreddit.

Throughout the clip, the textures on the weapon camo were glitching, and the Redditor was unable to see anything through the optic when aiming down sights. They described the glitch as “polygon madness.”

While the textures looked bad when aiming down sights, they looked even worse in the killcam that played after the player was taken out. At that point, the entire screen was blocked by the glitch.

EPURON explained in the comments that this is their first time encountering the Demon Gun Glitch, and others brought up the times they had to deal with it back when Vanguard first launched.

This glitch has become infamous among Warzone Pacific and Vanguard players since it pops up repeatedly to cause mayhem on their screens and still hasn’t been removed for good after multiple update patches.
