Zombies players blast holiday update lack of detail

The 2021 Call of Duty holiday update brought loads of changes to Vanguard and Warzone but not the popular Zombies mode.

This Reddit post by ‘Dapper-Geologist-468’ has the community in shambles as the festive cheer that Stalingrad received was not exactly what everyone expected.

Der Anfang consists of multiple areas that players can teleport to and complete objectives. But sadly, the holiday spirit on doesn’t go anyway past the starting room.

To make it worse, Zombies players were fuming to see that all the map got was “some Christmas lights.”

One Redditor said, “Do the devs not feel embarrassed? Like as much as I hate my job if I literally put zero effort in I would still feel a little guilt for delivering such a s**t product.”

Others chimed in with their disappointment for Vanguard Zombies thus far. There still isn’t a round-based map or a main Easter egg quest, so the lackluster festive update just further dug the hole the community views the game in.
