CoD Vanguard patch notes nov 11

Following Vanguard’s November 10 update, players noticed that certain Operators had their XP reset back to level one. Thankfully, there’s a quick and easy way to fix the issue, and here’s how to do it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has been a success ever since it launched earlier this month, with fans enjoying the WWII aesthetic and the fresh weapons and maps.

Unfortunately, the game also released with a handful of bugs that have impacted an otherwise fun experience, like the Search and Destroy bomb glitch.

But when Sledgehammer released the November 10 patch to help fix some of the launch bugs, players soon noticed that some Operators had been reset back to level one. Luckily, there’s a super easy fix.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Operators

Shortly after the update went live, PC and PlayStation players noticed that all of the XP they had accumulated for some of the new Operators had been lost.

As you’d expect, fans quickly took to social media to point out the problem, fearing that they would have to start from scratch after nearly a week of effort.

But don’t worry, despite the fact that it looks like all of your progress has been wiped, Sledgehammer confirmed on social media that it’s actually just a UI glitch.

Responding to a concerned player on Twitter, the devs said that this issue is a “small UI bug” that can be fixed by playing one match of multiplayer.

Once a match of any mode is complete and you return back to the menus, the correct level for all of your Operators should be displayed as normal.

This news will no doubt come as a relief to Vanguard players, especially those who put serious hours in since the game dropped on November 5, 2021.

If want to see the other issue devs are working on, you can do so by checking out their official Trello board.
