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

Original story (published on July 29, 2022) follows:

Raven Software’s most recent COD: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update is said to be one of the most ambitious updates yet.

It includes various interesting changes such as a new Rebirth of the dead game mode, Private mode support in Fortune’s Keep map, new Camos, and much more.

This update also introduces a new assault rifle (VG) — Vargo S. It offers strong firepower and is ideal for medium and long-range engagements.


However, it now appears that many players are having trouble unlocking this weapon as they report (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) that Vargo-S (VG) unlock challenge is missing for them. And those affected have taken to Reddit to raise their complaints.

Here are some reports for reference:


Also there is a bug where the vargo s challenge won’t appear on how many close range elims I have I’m sure that’s a bug too or isn’t it suppose to be like that (Source)

Why Vargo appears locked with no info about the challenge next to it? Although I know what to do, and I already did it, I still can’t get the unlock. All of this in Warzone. (Source)

This is making players furious since the bug isn’t allowing them to unlock Vargo-S. But fortunately, it didn’t take too long for Raven Software to acknowledge this annoying bug.

And they said that they are currently investigating it. However, they didn’t provide any ETA for the fix.

In the meantime, you can try the following workarounds suggested by those affected and see if they help you unlock the weapon.

Workaround 1:


Workaround 2:

I’ve tried a few matches in MW and don’t have it yet, would love to see someone confirm though
EDIT: I was able to unlock it through MW19 (Source)

Gas Mask equipping delay

Apart from the aforementioned bug, many players are also complaining (1, 2) of an issue in COD: Warzone where they are facing delay when equipping the Gas Mask.

Here are some reports for reference:

Why is the gas mask always an issue? Hosed again and got a second over it. (Source)

Thank you thank you thank you! The gas mask bug cost me my 18th solo win in a row, absolutely heartbreaking 😭 hope it’s fixed ASAP (Source)
