Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: Vanguard is inspired by its predecessors when it comes to gameplay mechanics while bringing in significant improvements in certain areas like visuals.

Released on November 5 this year, players have already reported a number of bugs and issues which you can check out in our dedicated COD bug tracker.


Unsurprisingly, Vanguard players are now reporting (1,2,3,4) that they are unable to unlock the Mastery Card even after completing all Seasonal Challenges.

Many say that even though they have completed all 20 challenges, the game says that only 19/20 challenges have been completed. This is really frustrating for those affected since it is preventing them from collecting the mastery card.

It is interesting to note that some Warzone has an additional tier for challenges like finishing moves and AR kills. Players said they tried reinstalling their copy of the game to see if fixes the bug but it seems to be not helping.

You can in the image below that all challenges show a tick in front of them, indicating that they are completed but still haven’t received the mastery card.

Just as I suspected I finished all 20 season challenges for multiplayer but it only says 19/20 due to the fact the completion numbers are different from Warzone. Challenge 1 calls for 400 AR kills in WZ but only 300 in Vanguard yet it doesn’t track after 300 in WZ. In Vanguard Finishing moves challenge is complete 10/10 but in WZ it calls for 10/25 yet won’t track after 10. Challenge 19 Bullet Pen. Kills is the same. In WZ it is not registering as complete says 50/75 but in Vanguard it is complete. SHG please fix

Has anyone else had any problems with the seasonal challenges bugging out and not sayin you’ve completed them all even though you have? It still says I have 19/20 but all challenges have a checklist so I’m stumped. Just wonder if I’m the only one or if it is happening to multiple people

Thankfully, it looks like Sledgehammer Games is already aware of the Vanguard Master Card not unlocking issue with a card on their Trello saying that it is currently under investigation.

However, there is no ETA on when it will be fixed, so Vanguard players might have to wait quite a while since holidays are right around the corner.
