Call of Duty Vanguard update patch notes

Today’s Call of Duty Vanguard update contains everything needed to access the game after Season 3 Reloaded coming later this week. Most of what was added with Patch 1.18 will not be accessible until Season 3 officially begins on May 25th after 17:00 BST on PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms. Among the biggest changes is the introduction of the new H4 Blixen submachine gun, which can also be used in Warzone.

What makes this better for Vanguard is that it will be easier to level up via official multiplayer rather than using Plunder or Battle Royale modes in WZ. There will also be a new map to explore during Season 3 Reloaded. Sphere will be a small multiplayer map with an underground weapons laboratory hidden under the facade of a coal mine.

A message from Sledgehammer Games explains: “Fight on the top floor in the dusty environment of a simulated coal mining village with wooden buildings, crates and natural formations that will make you feel like a true Old West gunslinger. Head underground and you’ll be greeted by the mine, concrete tunnels, workshop, and central laboratory, which operators can pour into from all sides. Operators who are best at navigating between the upper and lower environments will likely have the upper hand in combat, regardless of mode.”
