Call of Duty: Vanguard April 18 Update New Improvements and Bug Fixes

Call of Duty: Vanguard April 18 Update
April 18 Update Sledgehammer Games

Call of Duty: Vanguard has received a new update that addresses a number of issues, including Zombies and certain game modes. The latest update also implements some improvements to the user interface.

What are the things that got resolved? Well, there was a huge issue back then where some players were prevented from being placed on the competitive ladder after completing their evaluation matches. This has been fixed in the game’s latest update. So, for those who were having trouble with their placement matches previously, it is now safe to engage in ranked play once again.

Some bugs in Zombies mode that affect stability have been addressed as well. For instance, the problem where players would be kicked from a match when reviving a player using melee and tactical items only is resolved. Moreover, the issue where inspecting the Decimator Shield or Ray Gun would result in a crash has been fixed.

While the latest update for Call of Duty: Vanguard has addressed several issues, some players are not happy because it didn’t fix some of the long-standing problems.

Redditor @meteoricburst said that camo tracking for the seven-attachment challenge in Zombies mode is still broken. True enough, it is indicated in the game’s Trello board that some camo challenges are not tracking progress as intended. Although the issue is still present to this day, it is a good sign that developer Sledgehammer Games is aware of it. Hopefully, it gets fixed soon.

Call of Duty: Vanguard April 18 update is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
