Thank you for playing the Vanguard Beta!

by Sledgehammer Games

A round of high fives for our Beta participants! 

We hope you enjoyed your time in Vanguard and the innovations we’ve brought to Multiplayer. Over the course of the Beta, we were able to collect a great deal of community feedback. All of the official reports, gameplay clips, and messages have assisted our developers in squashing bugs, improving features, and refining the maps and modes for launch. 

Here’s a shortlist of things that have either already been fixed for launch or issues we’re currently working on, thanks to your feedback:

  • Nerfing the sun

  • Cracking down on Red Star raves

  • Removing dognados

  • Tuning spawns to avoid Hotel Royal’s murder kitchen

  • Closing open mic lobbies in Search & Destroy 

In all seriousness, we are fixing those things. We’re also taking a thorough pass at weapon balancing, audio mixing, and visibility. But we’ll share more on that later.

As a reminder, Beta was just a sample of the overall Call of Duty: Vanguard experience. You can expect more maps, modes, and weapons in Vanguard on November 5. Vanguard will also include an exciting Campaign set against four major theaters of war and a franchise-first, universe-expanding, Zombies crossover - crafted by our wonderful friends at Treyarch. 

With that, we want to give one last thank you to all of our players! We can’t wait to share more Vanguard with you all. More to come!
