Call Of Duty Fans Are Furious At New Weapon Distortion Effect In Vanguard

Oh, man. We knew that Call of Duty fans were very good at complaining, but we’re reaching new heights now.

To be fair to fans of the FPS series, they’ve been given much to bemoan. Warzone especially is awash with problems, with bugs breaching the immersive battle royale experience and hackers flying through the air and ruining games.

And already, fans have problems with the upcoming title, and it’s an issue that could interfere directly with competitive play.

Fans Are Furious Over Vanguard’s Weapon Distortion

It has been discovered that when playing Call of Duty: Vanguard, firing your weapon produces a curious warped effect that reflects the force of the bullet leaving the chamber, and fans aren’t very happy about it.

YouTube personality TheXclusiveAce has discovered, through playing the Vanguard beta, that when firing your weapon there is a good deal of distortion that is produced, making it a little tougher to focus and fine-tune aim when aiming down sights.

“Look at the amount of distortion that happens while firing this gun”, he says in the video. “What am I supposed to do with this information? How am I supposed to adjust my aim? How am I supposed to control my recoil to make sure I’m staying on target?”

This is a big change to the way that multiplayer games will work. Suddenly, so long as this feature stays in the finished game, a lot more reliance will be put on where you aim first, and adjustments will be much harder to accomplish - but is this really a bad thing?

How Will Vanguard’s Weapon Distortion Change Gameplay?

It seems as though the distortion exists in a bid to bring some realism to the WWII shooter, and it looks like fans aren’t happy about it - but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

With everyone experiencing the same weapon distortion, it’s not like fans are being unfairly hindered, and players will all have equal opportunity to kill with the effect applied. It’s an added challenge to the way gunplay works in Vanguard, and naturally, as it changes the way the game is played, backlash can be expected. But, with everyone in the same boat, once everyone is used to the new way the weapons work, the small detail could change Call of Duty for good, and that’s a good thing in our books.

The weapon distortion is likely to be controversial when the game launches (if it makes it that far), but it certainly doesn’t have to ruin the gameplay. It just might have to get through some angry fans first.
