Alternatively, you could spring for the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,400 CoD Points to instantly skip the first 20 Tiers while unlocking every item in them. This will also grant you the bonus ‘Battle Prepped’ Legendary Skin for Polina.

Vanguard players furious with “broken” Attack on Titan bundle

The highly-anticipated Attack on Titan bundle is leaving Vanguard players feeling frustrated with the unfinished product they purchased.

Attack on Titan Vanguard bundle

Just one day after the release of the highly-anticipated crossover and Vanguard players are already frustrated with the “broken” Attack on Titan bundle.

There’s a ton of overlap between fans of both franchises therefore a crossover between brands checked a lot of conceptual boxes. However, early feedback from Vanguard players has been incredibly disappointing as they’ve highlighted major flaws with the cosmetics.

The Attack on Titan bundle already received its fair share of negative feedback prior to release due to the poor design of the Survey Corps Operator skin but some new flaws are leading players to claim the bundle as “broken”.

Attack on Titan bundle CoD

It didn’t take long for things to go sour with the Vanguard Attack on Titan bundle and given the fact that the bundle costs around $20 it’s easy to understand why players feel shortchanged. Paying customers expect a finished product and the bundle is clearly failing to deliver on this promise.

The bundle consists of one Operator skin, three weapon blueprints, three in-game animations, one emblem, one sticker, and one charm. Players have already called out the skin for its poor design and now it seems like two of the weapon blueprints and some animations are not working as advertised.

As you can see in the clip posted to the Vanguard subreddit, the weapon blueprints that advertise Orange Tracers actually boast lackluster “cartoonish muzzle flash.” Without the Tracers working as intended the weapon blueprints look and feel like half-finished products.

A separate post detailing issues with the bundle’s animations is additional proof that the bundle is broken “Dunno if it’s just me but the MVP highlight is broken, just shows every character beating someone with an invisible gun.”

Once again, the most significant selling point fails to work as intended. Without the iconic AoT blades, the MVP highlight animation is meaningless.

Ideally, the bundle would work as intended from the getgo instead of presenting an unfinished product to paying customers.

As this bundle isn’t cheap, costing players $20, hopefully Sledgehammer Games will look into these issues and ensure that they work as intended moving forward.

Vanguard graphics glitch makes CoD Zombies “unplayable”

A new Vanguard graphics glitch appeared after the January 20 update, and it’s making CoD: Zombies “unplayable.”

Vanguard Zombies

CoD: Vanguard’s January 20 update brought a new graphics glitch to the game, and players are frustrated as it has made the game’s Zombies mode “unplayable.”

Sledgehammer Games released a major Vanguard update on January 20 to address the game’s problems. This patch finally nerfed the Double Barrel Shotgun and fixed some frustrating glitches.

However, this update also brought some frustrating new issues for players to deal with. A new visual glitch has been ruining the graphics in Vanguard’s Zombies mode and making the game unplayable.

Reddit user ‘SecretlyHiddenSelf’ showcased this glitch in the CoD: Vanguard subreddit. The image they posted showed missing textures in the game’s Zombies mode, with large polygons taking up most of the screen.

This isn’t the first time that Vanguard players have had to deal with frustrating graphics issues. The Redditor called these new graphical glitches “insane,” claiming that they’re making Zombies “unplayable.”

The commenters were equally frustrated with these texture issues and some of them came to the conclusion that this glitch is a result of the NVIDIA Drivers update on PC. So, they began looking for ways to fix it.

How to fix Vanguard Zombies graphics glitch

A few of the commenters in this thread stated that reverting the NVIDIA Drivers update on your PC will fix this graphics glitch. “If you’re on PC roll your NVIDIA Driver back to 497.29,” suggested one user.

You can get this done by going on NVIDIA’s website and manually choosing a specific driver version to download and install. If you already have the latest driver installed then you can simply uninstall it.

Ultimately, this is a game-breaking glitch that the developers will need to address soon. At the time of writing, it’s unclear whether or not they’re aware of the issue, but we’ll be sure to update you if they announce a fix.

In a blog post on the official CDL website, General Manager Daniel Tsay confirmed that the mode will release in the near future, marking down February as its likely date.

“Ranked Play is planned to roll out alongside new Call of Duty: Vanguard game content in February,” he wrote. “We’re all very excited about the future of Ranked Play here and can’t wait to share more details as we get closer to its release.”

While Tsay didn’t go as far as giving an exact date, it’s likely that it will drop with Vanguard Season 2, which has been delayed to February 14.
