Call Of Duty: Vanguard Update Includes Stability Improvements And More

A brand new update has arrived to Call of Duty: Van­guard, and although these patch notes are small, the April 18th update focus­es on qual­i­ty-of-life update for mul­ti­play­er and Zom­bies mode.

Accord­ing to the patch notes, the update address­es an issue that pre­vi­ous­ly caused Oper­a­tors to be invis­i­ble dur­ing the MVP Vot­ing phase while on the map Cas­tle. The update also fix­es anoth­er invis­i­bil­i­ty bug that was caus­ing Oper­a­tors heads to dis­ap­pear when using a com­bat shield and akim­bo weapons.

Improve­ments were also made to a cou­ple of Van­guard’s mul­ti­play­er modes, includ­ing Search & Destroy, Arms Race, and Free-For-All. Of course, there are sev­er­al fix­es to Zom­bies as well, includ­ing a sta­bil­i­ty fix and crash issue adjustments.
