Vanguard November 18 patch notes have officially been revealed by the developers over at sledgehammer games, this update addresses multiple issues that players of the game have been dealing with during gameplay.

The update comes around a week after the Das haus 24/7 playlist was added which was plagued with unskilled shotgun users, as well as users who were upset about a feature found which most users would know of as ‘Bloom’.

Call of Duty: Vanguard also had other issues which wasn’t limited to a bug which allowed users to see someone defusing a bomb in Search and Destroy from across the map.

Here’s EVERYTHING that was included in the Vanguard November 18 patch notes:

We have noted this before but, players have been noticing multiple bugs and issues inside of the latest game in the Call of Duty franchise. Noting most of all that people are using over powered shotguns and are not to fond of the new ‘Bloom’ effect.



It looks like Sledgehammer Games is taking in everyone’s feedback after the Vanguard November 18 patch notes were released and addressed a multitude of these issues.

  • Weapon Tuning
    • Reduced the effects of ADS Spread (aka Bloom) on base weapons (without attachments).
      • Dev Note: Attachments improving Accuracy will reduce ADS Spread. Attachments with Accuracy penalties will increase the effects of ADS Spread. 
    • Balance pass on all Shotguns affecting range, pellet spread, hipfire penalty, and more.
  • Weapon Challenges
    • Fixed an issue where the MK11 launcher’s Long Shot Challenges were not tracking.
    • Corrected a mislabeled Proficiency required for the Mind Games Challenge for the Automaton.
    • Fixed a bug preventing the player from completing the Deadeye Challenge for the Fighting Knife.
  • UI – Gameplay
    • Fixed the Search and Destroy bomb glitch where players could see when an enemy was defusing the bomb.
  • Perks
    • Fixed the Gung Ho sprint speed shooting glitch – Slow down, friends.
  • Field Upgrade
    • Fixed a bug where players had 10x the amount of Armor HP than normal.
  • Challenges
    • Fixed a bug where the Grizzled Veteran Challenge – Get 50 Eliminations in Objective Modes was not tracking properly.
  • XP
    • Operators’ favorite weapons now provide the correct amount of XP when used.
  • Clan Tags
    • You know you shouldn’t be rocking the SHG, IW, and Raven tags. Now we’ve made it so you can’t.


Zombies Patch Notes

  • Exfil
    • Addressed an issue where the player could still interact with the Exfil portal after failing to Exfil.
  • Progression
    • Corrected the MVP Highlight unlock text that displays when reaching Level 5 with Solange.
  • Covenants
    • Addressed an issue where Legendary Covenants were still not appearing for some players.


It does seem that Treyarch is hard at work to make sure they are offering the Zombies community a great experience, but I think people are really waiting for a round based map as players noted that it is more repayable then the current game mode.
