Call of Duty Vanguard received a major update today. The mid-season update of Mercenaries of Fortune Season 4 Reloaded brings new content for both MP and Zombies mode. You can also expect lots of bug fixes.

New Map and Operator

The update added a new map called Desolation, set near the Pacific mountainside, littered with tons of destructible, which should motivate dynamic gameplay scenarios. Desolation 24/7 Featured Playlist has been added as well. A new operator, Ikenna Olowe (Immortal) is introduced in the game; you can get him by purchasing a bundle.

New Weapon

A new weapon, Vargo-S, is added to the game. It has a high firing rate and high accuracy but comes with low firepower. It is best used in medium to long-range engagements. You can access it in MP mode by getting 15 Close Range Kills. To get the gun in Zombies mode, you need to kill 20 or more enemies without getting hit 50 times via Assault Rifles. You could also just purchase its respective bundle to get the gun in both modes. However, keep in mind that the new weapon and the Serpentine perk are restricted in Ranked Mode for the time being.

The highlights of the patch are mentioned below.
