A bizarre glitch has been plaguing CoD Vanguard in recent weeks that sees killstreaks mysteriously vanish. Luckily, Sledgehammer Games have finally given indication that a fix is on the way.

Although Vanguard Season 4 has given players plenty to be excited about, including the return of the iconic Shi No Numa Zombies map, there are still a handful of frustrating issues that have been hampering the experience.

Matchmaking slowed down to the point that players were having to wait up to five minutes to find a game, and a bizarre bug even caused players to burst into flames. The latest glitch to affect Vanguard has seen killstreaks randomly disappear for seemingly no reason.

Sledgehammer Games have now shared an update on the issue which seems to reassure fans that it won’t be a problem for much longer.

For many players, the quickest and easiest way to obtain a higher-level killstreak is through a Care Package, offering a random killstreak for just four kills.

While some rewards operate themselves, the Warmachine and Deathmachine killstreaks place devastating weapons into the player’s hands to carry around the map and wreak havoc.

Both killstreaks are supposed to “persist through death until ammo is depleted.” This means they should remain equipped even if a player dies before they burn through all of the ammo.

However, in recent weeks players have reported that Warmachines and Deathmachines picked up through Care Packages have been vanishing after death, even if they had bullets remaining.

From the dev’s official Trello board, we can see that they are aware of the issue and are set to push out a patch. A card titled “Warmachine and Deathmachine from Care Packages are lost upon death” has a “fix scheduled” label attached.

There’s no indication yet as to when the fix will be rolled out to Vanguard players, but it’s safe to say that there won’t be too long to wait.
