'Call Of Duty: Vanguard' Is Making Some Major Changes Following Beta Feedback

Now that the Call Of Duty: Vanguard beta is all wrapped up, developer Sledgehammer Games can set about addressing the various player feedback so that the World War II shooter is in the best possible state come launch day.


The studio has already outlined a list of changes we can expect to see as a result of player feedback from the beta. "All of the official reports, gameplay clips, and messages have assisted our developers in squashing bugs, improving features, and refining the maps and modes for launch," Sledgehammer wrote.

Take a look at the latest Call Of Duty in action below:



These changes run the gamut from pretty serious issues like "a thorough pass at weapon balancing, audio mixing, and visibility," to much, much stranger alterations. For one thing, Sledgehammer has vowed to "nerf the sun". Yes, you read that right.

While this isn't typically the kind of thing you'd expect to see in patch notes, fans will no doubt be glad to learn of it. We're assuming that "nerfing" the sun in this instance refers to toning it down several notches in terms of brightness; players running the game on max settings have reported a ridiculous amount of lens flare that massively hinders vision. Not ideal for PC users that already have to contend with large numbers of cheaters.

In other news, Activision is now being investigated by the United States government in regards to its alleged toxic workplace environment. This is in addition to two lawsuits currently in motion that have been filed in relation to claims of a culture of sexual harassment within the company, and unfair labour practices.


The latest suit, filed by Activision employees in partnership with the Communications Workers of America (CWA), alleges Activision Blizzard has violated numerous federal labor laws through union busting and intimidation. It is entirely separate to the earlier harassment lawsuit filed by the state of California.
