A new Call of Duty: Vanguard update went live on November 10. The game’s patch notes reveal fixes for 2XP tokens, camo progression, and other problems across multiplayer and Zombies.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has only been out for about five days, but Sledgehammer Games are already attacking the game’s early bugs. While they haven’t quite fixed everything just yet, a new patch is cleaning up some of the mess.

After players complained about 2XP, redeemable rewards, and camo progression bugs, the new patch brought fixes for a variety of those issues. 

Additionally, it fixed a Combat Shield issue and brought a bunch of Zombies changes.

While the patch hasn’t fixed the notorious S&D bomb glitch, it does tackle some other problematic areas. A number of fixes address random issues with the Gunsmith and Zombies, while one specifically tackles the Combat Shield-ruining bug.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that the patch fixed all camo progression issues — but it does apparently solve the pistol problems. The solutions for 2XP tokens and redeemable rewards are sure to satisfy some fan complaints as well.
