Call of Duty: Vanguard update goes live today

Sledgehammer Games has released an update for Call of Duty: Vanguard.

The update went live today on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Among other things, it rebalances low-caliber magazine attachments. Operators are now silent while performing specific movements. Plus, the Trophy Systems no longer destroy a thrown Skal Crusher.

Here are the complete patch notes from Sledgehammer Games:

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.
