Warzone & Vanguard players slam “scam” MP40 Blueprint

Vanguard and Warzone players have been less than impressed with the Bioluminescence MP40 Blueprint, saying they got “scammed.”

Call of Duty: Warzone and Vanguard players have been less than impressed with the ‘Bioluminescence’ MP40 Blueprint, with the $20 bundle being labeled a “scam.”

Vanguard and Warzone players were excited to get their hands on the Bioluminescence MP40 Blueprint due to its glowing blue aesthetic and cyan-colored tracers. However, players who purchased it through the 1800 CoD Point Blue Thunder Tracer Pack, which roughly equals $20, are more than disappointed.

Rather than glowing as showcased in the store, the weapon has a plain blue camo, leading players to say they “got scammed” and are advising others not to buy it.

As its title suggests, the Bioluminescence Blueprint is meant to emit a blue glow. However, as shown off by YouTuber FaZe Testyment, the actual gun has none of the advertised blue glow. Instead, it’s just a grainy blue camo, leading Testyment to say they “just got scammed.”

Another player took to Reddit to warn the CoD community against buying the Blueprint, showing that it’s no better in Vanguard. ‘Zinqahh’ said that “A £20 blueprint (with tracers) bundle & the gun looks NOTHING like it’s supposed to.” They also said that the tracer rounds are non-existent.

Many players were extremely grateful in the comments, saying that they would have bought the bundle if not for the Reddit post. “I wish I had Reddit [gold] to give you for saving me the money,” said one user. “I was looking forward to buying this pack JUST for that glowing skin.”

One user said that it looks how it should in Vanguard’s Zombies mode, but in multiplayer and Warzone it “looks terrible.” If true, it’s likely that this bundle isn’t appearing as it should, and wasn’t a conscious design choice.

The devs have made changes to bugged Blueprints in the past, so it’s entirely possible that the Bioluminescence MP40 will be updated to match its appearance in the store.

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.

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.

We’re past the Season 4 halfway point of Call of Duty action, and there’s still plenty of time to level up, prestige, and unlock weapons before Modern Warfare 2. Here are the full dates for the next Warzone and Vanguard Double XP weekends.

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.

Vanguard & Warzone Double XP dates

Call of Duty players can get Double XP by taking advantage of the Double XP promotional events that Activision put on.

Thanks to the Raven Software Trello board, we know when the next Warzone & Vanguard Double XP events are:

  • Double XP event – All platforms: Thursday, August 4 – Thursday, August 11
    • 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.

What time does CoD: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific Double XP start?

Here’s a full list of the usual Double XP event’s start time & dates in some of the key timezones:

  • PT – 10:00 AM
  • CT – 12:00 PM
  • ET – 1:00 PM
  • BST – 6:00 PM

These special Double XP events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

If you’re worried about slow progression for Vanguard and Warzone’s Battle Pass, the active Double XP event will no doubt give you a great boost to unlock all the Season 4 Reloaded rewards.
