Vanguard players want classic Call of Duty feature to make a return
Call of Duty: Vanguard is almost upon us, and players are already requesting fan-favorite features from previous games to return.
Players on PlayStation finally got a taste of the upcoming Call of Duty game, Vanguard, through the recent Alpha, which sparked some interesting feedback.
More players will be getting their first experience with Vanguard through the Open Beta, which had dates confirmed very recently.
Although not everyone has played Vanguard just yet, players are already asking the developers for certain features like map voting. In the latest of these requests, players are calling for the developers to bring back another fan-favorite feature that has previously been available in other Call of Duty games.
Custom emblems were previously a staple of Treyarch’s Call of Duty games, but unfortunately, Black Ops Cold War didn’t bring the feature back, which caused players to ask the developers for its return. The feature was also available in WWII, developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind Vanguard.
Although the feature can be quite controversial, it was a very creative way for players to express themselves, and it looks like players are missing it.
Reddit user BigBearSD posted their opinion on why custom emblems should return in Call of Duty: Vanguard, stating: “Something I would like to see in this game. Bring back the ability to create your own emblems!”

The player states that the custom emblem feature provided a creative outlet for when players were done with online matches: “Whenever I maxed out my prestige in WWII and just was bored but feeling creative I would spend hours at a stretch sitting their making historically accurate WWII unit insignia/patches for all factions.”
Through spending hours in the custom emblem creator, the player even had requests from others on how to create the emblems they had made: “I had people asking me how to make a certain patch and I would give them screenshot walkthroughs.”
This must be a great feeling for those who had spent so long trying to perfect emblems and make them look good, hence why players would like the feature back. As the post says, the custom emblems were “a way to de-stress, unwind, (and) kill time.”
Although these custom emblems probably won’t make a return due to their inability to prevent players from creating explicit and insensitive content, the creativity that was allowed was truly a great way to engage players even out of a match.
