The first patch of Vanguard Season 3 has arrived in the form of the May 10 update. This time around there was a focus on getting all of the Operators back to being silent, as well as making low-caliber mags more viable when compared to their high-powered siblings. 

This week’s Vanguard patch takes aim at punching up what wasn’t addressed in the Classified Arms update.

While there’s not as much to talk about in this one, veteran players will be happy to know that it’s safe to use their favorite operators again, as the loud groaning audio bug that was plaguing the game has now been dealt with for good.

Vanguard May 10 update: What’s changed?

Several operators were groaning and moaning when they mantled or dropped to the ground, but thankfully that’s out of the game now.

There’s no doubt that the audio bug took center stage this week.

In the notes, Sledgehammer specifies that instead of limiting this to the few operators who were most affected, their fix will apply to everyone equally: “All Operators are now silent while mantling, landing, and performing other movements.”

As a result, it’s going to be much easier to make stealthy little plays like climbing up into Top Church on Tuscan or any of the various high ground areas in Berlin.

That’s not the only global fix though. Low-caliber magazines saw a bump across the board, as the devs noticed that players were heavily favoring the TTK granted by the high-caliber alternatives.

“Magazine Attachments with a low-caliber have struggled to perform on par with their high-caliber counterparts. Today’s update increases the firepower of low-caliber Magazines so that players can equip these Attachments for the handling benefits while maintaining similar bullets-to-kill.”

For the full list of weapons and mags that were affected by this update, check out the full patch notes listed below.

Vanguard May 10 update Full Patch Notes

Operators

  • All Operators are now silent while mantling, landing, and performing other movements.

Ranked Play

  • The Season 3 Top 250 Skill Division and Ladder are now live.

Weapons

Magazine Attachments with a low-caliber have struggled to perform on par with their high-caliber counterparts. Today’s update increases the firepower of low-caliber Magazines so that players can equip these Attachments for the handling benefits while maintaining similar bullets-to-kill. Damage values are crafted to be most effective with shots to the head and torso. Decreases in range will favor close-range gunfights.
