Call Of Duty: Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded Patch Notes Include Map Fixes And Ranked Play Restrictions

Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s Mercenaries of Fortune Season 4 Reloaded update goes live on July 27, but Sledgehammer Games has released the patch notes ahead of time. In addition to the new map, weapon, and operator being added with Season 4 Reloaded, this mid-season update will include some map fixes, Ranked Play restrictions, and a few improvements to the Zombies mode.

Season 4 Reloaded will add the new Desolation multiplayer map, but Sledgehammer Games also revealed a few fixes are made to existing maps. A change is made to Gondola to address an exploit that allowed bullets to penetrate unintended surfaces near the East Bridge location. On the Paradise map, bullets will no longer penetrate the truck near the Flak Gun to prevent undesirable spawn conditions.

The mid-season update will add the Vargo-S assault rifle. However, the new weapon will arrive as a restricted weapon in Vanguard’s Ranked Play competitive mode. The Serpentine perk is also now restricted for use in Ranked Play.

For Zombies mode, a few fixes are made to the Shi No Numa map. The developer says various visual issues and zombie pathing corrections will be implemented on the map, and it addresses an issue where Wonder Weapon parts were not appearing on the map in offline mode.

Shi No Numa’s Wunderwaffe DG-2 Wonder Weapon will have a slight buff, as the patch notes reveal an increased reload speed of the weapon. The update will also address an issue that caused zombies to sometimes not be killed after being hit with the Wunderwaffe DG-2.

The full Season 4 Reloaded patch notes can be found below, as shared by Sledgehammer Games.
