Vanguard spawn update fix

After analyzing data and feedback from the Experimental Playlist, Vanguard devs have finally delivered a proper fix to major spawn issues.

Vanguard’s subpar spawn logic has been the number one complaint from avid players since the game’s release.

A few weeks ago, the devs put a plan in place to finally fix Vanguard’s spawns. On March 25, players received an Experimental Playlist meant to test the quality of spawns.

The devs also requested that players submit feedback on the state of Vanguard spawns and their overall multiplayer experience. All this valuable data has been used to finally provide a permanent fix to Vanguard spawns across multiplayer maps.

Vanguard Das Haus spawns

At first, the Experimental Playlist only included small Vanguard maps where poor spawn logic was common. Players continued to report spawn issues on Dome, Shipment, and Das Haus as the devs collected feedback.

Spawning next to enemies or enemy bullets is not a pleasant experience and hopefully, players will no longer have to deal with this problem. Later on, the Playlist expanded to incorporate maps of all sizes, which means the overall Vanguard experience on every map could have improved for the better.

As you can see from Sledgehammer’s Tweet above, the devs claim that “the spawn adjustments have proven beneficial.” As of April 12, the spawn changes are live which means that you should notice an improvement on all maps.

Interestingly enough, Sledgehammer has yet to reveal patch notes that detail the various changes. Additional information would be vital to understanding the impact of these spawn changes, so hopefully, players will get their hands on patch notes soon enough.

It’ll be up to the players to decide whether or not they feel the spawn quality has improved but these are certainly positive words from the team in charge.
