Vanguard Zombies Artifact glitch allows infinite uses

It currently appears as though players can infinitely use Artifacts in Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies, thanks to a rather simple glitch.

CoD Zombies is no stranger to weird glitches, and the latest one in Vanguard Zombies seems to let players use Artifacts as many times as they want.

Glitches are pretty much inescapable as there is always at least one thing bound to go wrong with a game. It was only recently that players stumbled across a method that allowed them to instantly equip Perks in Der Anfang.

However, this Artifact glitch is a lot more match-altering where the gameplay is concerned, and we can’t imagine it will be sticking around in Vanguard forever.

Der Anfang has come under criticism for lacking content, and this is something we covered in our extensive review and analysis of CoD Vanguard Zombies.

But it thankfully hasn’t had any game-breaking glitches or anything like that, although this new glitch certainly does affect how players can choose to play Vanguard’s Zombies mode.

KryptCeeper posted evidence of the Zombies glitch in the official CoD Zombies subreddit, and it showed them having constant access to the game’s Artifact abilities.

The OP explained how they were able to pull this simple-looking method off: “Start a game with any artifact and charge it. Then switch to any class with a different artifact and use it. Then switch back before it runs out.”

It seems to be a rather straightforward series of steps for players to follow, and it’s probably safe to assume that Treyarch didn’t want players to be able to have infinite Artifact usage, so expect it to be patched soon.
