The new year has started and Sledgehammer Games is finally back to working on Call of Duty: Vanguard. They’ve outlined what players can expect in the next update, which will likely be when Season 1 Reloaded is released.
Posting to Twitter, the studio listed some of the adjustments they will be making, starting with a tweak to the Panzerfaust Challenges that will help players finish them. Call of Duty: Vanguard will also get “perk adjustments” to help counteract all the fire damage players have been taking. Sledgehammer also plans on balancing weapons, specifically buffing sniper rifles and nerfing shotguns (again).
Finally, and thankfully, they are also going to reduce the mortar barrage’s duration.
“Thank you for your patience while we were working behind the scenes,” Sledgehammer said. “You can expect more frequent updates now that we’re back, with more to come this week.”
The best-selling titles of 2021 haven’t yet been released, but it’s likely that Call of Duty: Vanguard will take that spot for the United States, as it has for years. Call of Duty has been the top-seller game each year for a decade, except for 2018 when Red Dead Redemption II and Grand Theft Auto V placed first in the charts.
