The second Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer beta has begun, but Xbox players are not having the best time right now. People are reporting serious graphical issues on Xbox that are so problematic they are impacting gameplay.
Of course, Sledgehammer Games is aware of this and are currently “investigating the issue.” Some examples of these graphical bugs can be seen below.
Vanguard Beta Graphic Bugs — Xbox Only
The Modern Warzone account posted a video that includes some terrible graphic issues that completely overwhelm the entire screen, rendering the game unplayable. User Unleashion shows off a less extreme but still frustrating graphic bug. You can see clips from plenty of others showing similar problems below:

Vanguard’s multiplayer beta represents an in-development version of the game, so bugs and problems are expected, but this is a bit beyond normal expectations for a pre-release beta stage. These issues are not appearing nearly as much (or at all) on PlayStation and PC.
Sledgehammer hasn’t given any indication of when a fix might be heading to Vanguard’s beta. Hopefully it’s soon, because the beta will end on Monday morning.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on November 5th. You can check out our Call of Duty: Vanguard preorder guide if you’re looking to pick up a copy.
