Call of Duty: Vanguard Update 1.11 Improves Xbox Stability and More

A new Vanguard update is available now.

by Diego Perez


Update 1.11 has arrived for Call of Duty: Vanguard, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch. This update is currently rolling out across all platforms, but it is a primarily Xbox-focused patch with multiple Xbox-specific fixes. Multiple connectivity issues have been addressed, and players should no longer encounter a strange bug that swapped default controls to mouse and keyboard when a controller would disconnect. Again, this patch is very small, only weighing in at roughly 511 MB, so don’t expect any major new additions.

Still, Xbox players in particular will have a better experience in Vanguard after installing this update. Some Xbox players were experiencing crashing issues when loading into matches in any mode, including Quick Play, Feature Playlist, and Private Matches, and now the game should be much more stable overall. The game would also crash sometimes during the MVP voting sequence at the end of a match. Basically, this patch should just reduce the number of crashes experienced on Xbox systems overall.

A handful of annoying minor bugs have been squashed as well. In multiplayer, a glitch has been fixed where nameplates would not show up when aiming at an enemy. Nameplates play a large role in enemy visibility in Vanguard, so it’s great that they’ll show up consistently now. For those who are still working through the Vanguard campaign, there are plenty of fixed issues in that mode as well. A bugged achievement glitch has been remedied, and some crashes and freezes have been solved as well.
