New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on February 17, 2022) follows:

Developed by Sledgehammer Games, COD Vanguard is the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise. The game returns to the origins of the saga with a setting based on World War II.

A few days ago the game received its Season 2 update with a new battle pass. The update brought new items, skins, weapons and other changes.

However, there are still certain glitches that need to be fixed and remain after the update. The issues present in COD Vanguard not only impact gameplay, but also visual elements such as skins.

For instance, the COD Vanguard Beatrice Parisian skin is currently bugged. Players are also having issues unlocking the Diamond Operator skin.

COD Vanguard Beatrice Parisian skin bugged

A glitch in the Beatrice Parisian skin causes visual glitches. The most common is that when equipping the skin, the character is shown with her classic base skin instead of the new one (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

@SHGames Beatrice’s new skin called Parisian does Not display when being used in Vanguard. It displays her older skin but not the new one. Please fix.


@Activision @ATVIAssist can you tell me why the season 2 battle pass tier 20 skin for Beatrice is exactly the same as her base skin??? 🤨🧐🤔

In other cases the glitch causes Beatrice’s hat to be misplaced, which produces a strange visual effect on her head (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).


Official acknowledgment

Sledgehammer Games is already aware of this issue. The company has disabled the Tier 20 reward from the Season 2 update while they work on a fix. Players who meet the requirements will receive the skin when it is fixed.

The Tier 20 reward in the Season Two Battle Pass has been disabled due to a known issue with the Beatrice Parisian skin. This reward will be granted when the fix is implemented in Vanguard’s next update.

Players still unable to unlock Diamond Operator skin

Some COD Vanguard players are also having issues with the Diamond Operator skin. In this case the problem is that you cannot unlock it even if you meet the requirements (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

@SHGames the diamond for the barbarian operators are still locked for me. all my other Operators have their skins unlocked and are max level. has there been a fix put out yet?

This problem is not exactly new, and the company even claimed that with the Season 2 update it had been resolved. However, after the update the bug remains.

Diamond Operator Skins

Hey everyone, I am having problems with unlocking The diamond Operator Skins for the Shadow group even though I maxed every operator out in the 4 original groups. In the most recent patch Notes for season 2, there is supposed to be a fix for this and I do not see that anything has changed. Source
