Call of Duty Vanguard recently received some love from the developer. Sledgehammer Games released an update yesterday that brought some improvements, however, it doesn’t add any new content. The update tweaked spawn point locations on several modes and made camo challenges a little easier. The efficiency of the silencer has been reduced as well.

From now on, in the Tuscan map, players will spawn a little further away from the third hill in Hardpoint mode. This change is to make sure that players won’t reach the objective quickly after spawning. The spawn point in Control mode has been pushed back as well. The spawn point in Control mode in the Gavuta map has been tweaked to combat spawn killing.

From now on, weapons won’t go missing if a player equips a combat shield in the secondary weapon slot. Longshot and headshot requirements of several camo challenges have been reduced, making sure that more players unlock them. Silencer Attachment on Armaguerra 43 SMG will not make the weapon completely silent anymore. The patch also addressed the issue where Attachment modifiers will stack, which won’t happen anymore.
