Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games dropped another update for Vanguard Zombies on October 6, introducing the new Lienna 57 LMG, as well as weapon adjustments and bug fixes. Here are the full patch notes.

Vanguard has now received its final seasonal update ahead of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2’s launch in the coming weeks. While Season 5 Reloaded brought the new BP50 Assault Rifle, the devs dropped another update on October 6.

Vanguard’s October 6 patch didn’t really touch on the multiplayer side of things much, only adding the Beheaded map to Blueprint Gun Game private matches, improving an MVP Highlight’s appearance, and adding the new Lienna 57 LMG to the game.

Zombies got some weapon adjustments and bug fixes as well, with the Armaguerra‘s Botti 315mm CII barrel now dealing more damage as intended, and the Blueprints are now behaving properly.

Treyarch have also fixed the Pack-a-Punch machine, where suppressed weapons will have the correct audio, as well as general “stability fixes.”

The standout addition of the October 6 update is Season 5 Reloaded’s Lienna 57 LMG, so be sure to check out its best loadout for both Vanguard and Warzone.
