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

Original story (published on March 25, 2022) follows:

Activision released COD Vanguard last year (2021) as the latest installment in the Call of Duty series. With Vanguard, the developers wanted to go back to the series origins (WWII).

However, the game is currently experiencing various glitches that are affecting the players experience.

According to multiple reports, COD Vanguard Quick Play and Combat Pacing settings are resetting automatically. Also, the Mastery challenges tracking is not working properly.

COD Vanguard Armaguerra 43 weapon is also presenting an issue as it has no sound if you equip a silencer or suppressor to it.

COD Vanguard Quick Play and Combat Pacing settings resetting

The first issue impacts the Quick Play and Combat Pacing game modes. In the case of Quick Play mode, the player’s settings are resetting to standard or base each time they exit the game (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).


S2 reloaded an options reset?

Just noticed in my quick play that it was reset to Core since I always play HC. set it to HC played a bit, left out to desktop, came back in and damn it was set back to Core again! nice update!

In the case of Combat Pacing mode, the Pacing chosen by the player randomly changes to another.


Combat pacing is one of the best things added in the franchise, but in this game it’s not working efficiently. For example, i choose blitz and when i search i got tactical?

COD Vanguard Mastery challenges tracking not working

In COD Vanguard Mastery challenges, players must accomplish certain high difficult objectives to obtain very valuable rewards within the game (1, 2, 3, 4).

However, there is an issue with the Mastery challenges tracking system as it is not working properly. In some cases, the progress gets stuck at a certain point, while in others there is no progress at all.


Zombies Season 1 Mastery challenge 19/20 completed

Hi guys sorry if it has been asked and answered, is anyone having issues STILL will unlocking the mastery calling card for season 1?

I have checked and I have all of them unlocked individually and I can select them all to use in game, but it still says 19/20, any help is really appreciated it’s so annoying

Vanguard Armaguerra 43 no audio with silencer equipped

Finally, there is an issue with the Armaguerra 43 weapon. Apparently when you put a silencer or suppressor on the Armaguerra 43, the weapon will not make any sound when shooting (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

The silencer or suppressor should mitigate the sound of the gun, but not completely eliminate it.


Armaguerra-43 suppressor bug

Just wanted to post a bug I’ve come across. I noticed when using either of the two suppressors for this new smg that there is no sound at all when shooting. All you hear are hitmarkers. Kind of game breaking considering that you are quite literally silent and no one can hear your gun being fired.

Sledgehammer Games is aware of the issues

Sledgehammer Games team is already aware of all the issues described above. Regarding the ‘Quick Play and Combat Pacing resetting’ and the ‘Mastery challenges tracking broken’, the company is currently investigating.


On the other hand, the company already has a fix for the ‘Armaguerra 43 silencer audio’ issue as it is tagged as ‘scheduled’ on their public Trello board.


We will update this story once new details emerge on this topic in the future.
