Call Of Duty: Vanguard Update Fixes Bugs, Makes Changes To Camo Progression, and More

Sledge­ham­mer Games has released anoth­er update for Call of Duty: Van­guard, and it’s brought a num­ber of adjust­ments with it. These include a change to the camo chal­lenge for the 3‑Line sniper rifle, an increase to the charge time of Dead Drop, fix­es to some kill­streaks, and plen­ty more.

The 3‑Line sniper rifle had it’s Blood­thirsty Chal­lenges camo chal­lenges changed to Prone Chal­lenges. Play­ers had request­ed changes to the chal­lenge, but this is quite a dras­tic alter­ation. There is no word on when oth­er weapon camo chal­lenges will be fixed or adjusted.

A cou­ple of kill­streaks also received some treat­ment. The Fla­me­naut had a dam­age direc­tion indi­ca­tor added; while the Fire Bomb­ing Run and Attack dogs both had VFX fixes. 

Maps went through a bit of bug fix­es them­selves, includ­ing Demyan­sk, Oasis, Tus­can, and Numa Numa. Demyan­sk and Oasis had exploits fixed, while Tus­can and Numa Numa had a rare issue–of play­ers spawn­ing out­side of the map–fixed as well. 

You can check out the full changes in the patch notes below, as detailed by Sledge­ham­mer Games. This update also paves the way the the upcom­ing Sea­son 1 for Call of Duty: Van­guard and the switch to the Caldera map in War­zone. Call
