COD Vanguard Player Visibility Is a Problem, Here’s How Bad It Is

What a fucking awful site. 1 sentence before you have to click "read more" and 5000 ads to scroll through.

ID: hat0te2

First time I clicked on it there were no ads until the bottom and no read more. Second time once I clicked read more the whole article was there to read with no ads. Don't see what the problem is.

Who in their right mind thought this was a good idea? It's like they have never made a fps before.

ID: har3nt5

The muzzle flash is ridiculous in this game and is the exact same as COD WW2's early days. It's like they took the game code from MW and WW2 and mashed it together with the worst parts of WW2 coming through way more.

I hate how the guns throw sparks every time you fire. I know quality control wasn’t great during WWII but damn! Seems like your guns going to explode

The alpha was really boring.

ID: hat0kdf

Boring is an understatement. I love call of duty but this shit was terrible

Champion hill is another bad attempt at making the game more competetive while also being 'innovative'

It's just a less enjoyable gunfight. The buy mechanic is cute. You will buy the same fucking things over and over. In a co-ordinated group or against one, it'll be even worse. I just want to run around and shoot in not dogshit maps with no tac sprint.. And not fucking MW2019 again; that was unplayable at launch

ID: hatwztr

I only thought it was boring cos there was only 1 game mode but champion hill was fun imo

Devs have already said they're aware and addressing these issues, so that's good to see

ID: hargeqk

Devs are aware their game is a dumpster fire and are addressing the issues.

Seriously how did no one notice you can't see shit?

ID: hasdn8o

It's textbook for " The testers reported it but until the customer is complaining about it, it's not getting fixed."

ID: hat0r8q

Lol people are so hyperbolic and negative. It’s hard to take any of the comments seriously when people are calling shit like this a dumpster fire.

ID: hat4iaa

Eh I dunno, I personally have found it pretty decent in the little bit I’ve played. Certainly far better than Cold War.

I played the game for like 15 minutes and uninstalled it. I completely agree with whats being said, enemies completely disappear behind muzzle flash and smoke if you are even lucky enough to see the dark brown uniformed enemy Infront of the dark brown world

ID: hask03s

Same here. Uninstalled in after 20mins. Also you get 2 shots and you dead. It's more realistic but i did not even see enemies without constantly zooming in with sniper. Call of duty mobile is much easier to enjoy

ID: hasiadb

Its the sound thats also a problem though, you can't hear people sprinting, smashing through wooden walls etc. There's zero directionality to the sound its awful.

It looks great but that's where it all stops. One the worst states I've played a so called competitive shooter in to be honest, CoD reay needs a proper shake up. Hope EA and DICE get it right this time. Competition is good for us all.

ID: hasln5l

And the fact that you hear the entire lobby fighting, , a completely pointless feature that makes the whole gunfight more distracting

ID: hasitd5

I was playing on PS5 with decent surround headphones and found the directional sound one of the few redeeming features

Edit: Changed speakers to Headphones... I have no idea why I keep typing different words to the ones I mean to but its getting pretty irritating

ID: hass2s1

Yeah, the colour palette is really the biggest issue for me. Just so brown.

7 : Anonymous2021/08/29 00:14 ID: haquutl

That's why alpha and beta versions exist, hope they listen to our feedback!

ID: hassl8x

What’s everyone complaining about? As you stated isn’t that the whole point of these? Get into players hands early. Get feedback. Adjust. Do more testing from players. Rinse and repeat?

It’s not like nothing will change before now and release

ID: hat0wv8

You can’t post CoD on this sub and not see comments like the world is raining fire outside. It’s so annoying. It’s a popular franchise and a solid game. They’ll iron out most of the complaints.

The alpha has been decently enjoyable so far, but I wish they gave us a classic game mode like HQ or TDM. I love the WW2 direction, but would have preferred they stuck to an old school vibe without perks, etc. for purchase. One of my all time fav games was COD2 on Xbox 360. Just a classic FPS.

9 : Anonymous2021/08/29 01:35 ID: har4a9z

The interface as a whole is garbage. I do not know what moron thought those grenade indicators were fine to push into the game

10 : Anonymous2021/08/29 02:06 ID: har7txm

Honestly thought my eyesight was going. It really was rough to play.

ID: harwpvn

I was legit worried about the same thing. My reaction time is slower than my prime and now I can't even see the enemy? Was about to hang up the sticks for good.

11 : Anonymous2021/08/29 05:44 ID: hartmgy

Thankfully it’s only a test, I couldn’t hear anything either so hopefully there is a lot of editing to come

12 : Anonymous2021/08/28 23:53 ID: haqsb01

No fov slider is what kills it for me. I’m hoping they add it in later.

ID: haqv8yl

There wasn't an FOV slider in the Cold War's beta either. They'll probably add it in later.

ID: haqw729

I hope they do, honestly. I want to play the game because I love COD and have played everyone since MW2. But now that I’ve gotten used to having the slider, it’s hard to play without it. I’m sure I could adjust back if I played enough.

Visibility has been an issue for years now.

Don’t know why people always bring this up every time a new cod comes out as If it’s a new issue.

Cod issue that will always be around

*bad spawns *Maps with way too many angles and ways you can die *Poor visibility *Bad gun balance

ID: harbitz

I don't know why people keep expecting cod to change, they're probably the wrong market for the game to begin with. It's one of the only popular shooter with smaller maps and instant unlimited respawns because the focus on TDM is to offer an easily accessible way for players to jump into the action without having to master a bunch of mechanics or memorize peek points. Modern Halo is unironically the closest comparison and many people complained about those changes.

ID: hasapam

One of the biggest kickers for me js the invisible walls everywhere, you cant be the slightest bit creative. No climbing on stuff its just run down one of these 3 lanes.

14 : Anonymous2021/08/29 04:31 ID: harn845

What I don’t understand is how people are picking me off in pitch black where I can’t see shit but in the Killcam they twitch shot kill me as if they have none of these problems.

ID: hasb4i8

They boosted brightness on their screens maybe?

15 : Anonymous2021/08/29 10:41 ID: hasewe8

I've just been shooting towards the red diamond thing that appears over peoples heads through walls.

16 : Anonymous2021/08/29 12:41 ID: hasotsl

Im glad it wasn't just me, I thought I was getting old or losing my eyesight.

I haven't played a cod game since the old Mw2 / bo2 days on xbox 360 and when I did my first match I found it so hard to actually see players.

The contrast between players and environment is terrible, the overall colour palate makes it really hard to recognise anything.

Muzzle flash from firing makes it so you can't see anything out of your sights.

On another note, this is supposed to be world war 2, why is there holographic sights in the game haha.

17 : Anonymous2021/08/29 13:34 ID: hasumqd

Can confirm, it sucks.

18 : Anonymous2021/08/29 13:54 ID: hasx61w

Everything is a problem with this game.

19 : Anonymous2021/08/29 14:10 ID: hasz45w

I feel like I have never played worse alpha but I still think the game can (and I hope will) be good. The alpha game mode is horrible and 2 maps are the 2 worst maps in cod history( the one with 3 closed lanes and 2 open lanes, and one with a white house with 2 breakable walls in it). And as you have here stated visibility is bad and spawns are bad and also shooting through everything like it's made of paper is also very bad. But I feel like those are problems that can be solved and it would be a shame if they don't because guns feel amazing and time to kill is awesome. Also, footsteps are much better than in modern warfare 2019. Good game with a bunch of problems.

To be honest everything is just sub par to the point its the same old shit but wrapped up in a new name asking for your goddam 4000 rupees again

21 : Anonymous2021/08/29 03:17 ID: harfp2c

I played one round on PS5 and I was good.

It's COD. It doesn't matter what mode they slap it in. Same thing for the past 15 years

22 : Anonymous2021/08/29 03:26 ID: harglx4

Tbh it only took three rounds for me to decide to skip this one, and I’m a huge COD fan.

23 : Anonymous2021/08/29 09:21 ID: has9i3e

Yeah no thanks. I’m sticking with battlefield this year.

24 : Anonymous2021/08/28 23:54 ID: haqsg0e

I mean it’s an alpha, not even the beta, check some videos form past cod games, on some the difference between the alpha and the beta or even the final game is really huge!, so to be an alpha i think it’s a good game, and yeah it still have some little issues but nothing big.

25 : Anonymous2021/08/29 02:59 ID: hardr29

It’s almost like it’s having the same exact problems as the mw2019 alpha. Wouldn’t be surprised that they didn’t learn shit from then. “We’re listening” no how about learn for the past and stop with the same issues every year and saying you’ll improve it.

26 : Anonymous2021/08/29 10:19 ID: hasdcgl

Can't believe they still let sledgehammer make the cod multiplayers. They have been known for some of the worst cods.

27 : Anonymous2021/08/29 01:20 ID: har2k28

The lack of FOV will probably be fixed but yes I agree with the linked article. The worst thing about the Alpha is the visibility. I got killed many times at medium range and never saw the enemy. Even worse, fire fights are impossible with the screen turning dark once you’re shot. It’s like trying to shoot through flash grenades all the time.

28 : Anonymous2021/08/29 01:59 ID: har71g6

Why are garbage websites like this allowed, but we get blasted when we want to discuss technical issues about the "PS5" on the "PS5 Subreddit". Not the graveyard that is

which the Mods want us use. Anything negative can't be on the front page. Follow the money trail. Sony employees control this board.

Perhaps we should start whitelisting game sites.
