A major Call of Duty: Vanguard glitch is causing the right stick to completely stop working mid-game for controller players, but thankfully, there is a way you can quickly fix it.
Vanguard players have had to deal with their fair share of bugs and glitches. These all have different effects on the game, such as making the High Alert perk stronger despite receiving a nerf, or letting players levitate.
Now, players that use controllers are encountering a new issue that causes the right stick to stop working. This leaves them with nothing to do but to keep running straight ahead, putting them at a serious disadvantage with no ability to aim.
Here’s how you can get around this Vanguard glitch.
Vanguard’s “right stick not working” glitch
The right stick glitch occurs when CoD: Vanguard automatically changes your input settings from controller to mouse and keyboard. This causes your controller to disconnect mid-game.
Once the controller reconnects, the right stick stops working entirely. This prevents you from looking around and aiming. Instead, all you’ll be able to do is keep running forward and shooting.
How to fix Vanguard’s “right stick not working” glitch
The first way to get around this glitch is to hit right on your controller’s D-pad. This button helps the game detect that the player is using a controller to play instead of a mouse and keyboard.
If this doesn’t work, then there are other methods that you can try out. Some players have reported that the right stick issue gets fixed after getting killed. This can ruin the match, but you’ll regain control of your Operator.
The final method that you can try out is to turn off the game altogether. Booting CoD: Vanguard back up will cause your controller to function properly again. You should also make sure that your controller is fully charged.
