Call of Duty: Vanguard received an update on April 7 that was headlined by a change to camo challenges for multiple categories. There was also a massive update to spawns for two CDL maps, as well as some alterations to attachments. Here are the full patch notes from the Vanguard update.

As Season 2 progresses, Sledgehammer Games continues to roll out patches to fix some of the game’s core issues. On April 7, this focused on camo challenges, which have been a long-lasting issue, making some of them easier to complete.

This also saw the likes of two Call of Duty League maps, Tuscan and Gavutu, see its spawn system get a slight revamp to better fit into the flow of matches.

The devs also adjusted an attachment on the Armaguerra 43, as well as some others guns. You can see everything that changed in the latest CoD Vanguard update here.

CoD Vanguard April 7 update: Camos & CDL spawns

The April 7 update had a couple main points, with the first being toward camo challenges. If you have played Vanguard since its release, then you probably remember the odd objectives needed to unlock new skins. Now, SHG is making the Headshot and Longshot medal requirements lower for “several” camos.

Another key part of this focused on Tuscan and Gavutu, which are both CDL maps. The devs have been testing a new spawn system in the Experimental Playlist, and it looks like they will implemented some already. For Tuscan, both Control and Hardpoint spawns are being altered slightly, while Gavutu Control is seeing a change to protect spawners.

Developers also fixed the Armaguerra 43 from being completely silent when using a suppressor as well as attachments that would stack modifiers.
