Call of Duty: VanguardZombies mode has had its fair share of issues, bugs, and design issues over the years, but optional unlockables haven’t been a major bone of contention for the community in the past. Now, however, unlocking a very specific endgame-level weapon skin can be impossible, and players aren’t keen on it.
Special, Call of Duty: Vanguard has a bunch of Zombies-specific weapon camouflages that players are going to have a hard time unlocking, and the pinnacle of that list – Dark Aether – seems utterly impossible to get right now. The problem lies in the fact that unlocking Dark Aether is entirely dependent on unlocking lower tier camos beforehand and these seem to be bugged at the moment.
vanguard Players have reported that anyone trying to unlock the elusive Dark Ether weapon camo at this point should keep their expectations in check. The only way to even unlock Dark Aether is to unlock all other weapon camouflage beforehand, and certain weapons, like the PPSh and Welgun, have their Survivalist camouflage challenges bugged and untracked. To this end, players are getting excited vanguard Zombies’ overwhelming ray gun now has another reason to fret about Season 2 content, as some endgame rewards just can’t be unlocked.
While the list of Zombies Season 2 content in COD: Vanguard While it’s quite impressive and includes long-awaited features like the introduction of wonder weapons, an actual narrative progression system, and a few Easter eggs for players to hunt, the whole experience was a bit disappointing for experienced players. Not only is it impossible to unlock key rewards like Dark Aether, making the endgame grind more tedious than it otherwise would have been, but some of the content was just a disappointment.
The Terra Maledicta Easter Egg in COD: Vanguardfor one, seems to have garnered some of the most commonly voiced complaints, with the general consensus of the community being that what’s included in Season 2 may not have been worth the several months of waiting. Seasoned players hoping to show off their shiny new Dark Aether skin will also have plenty to grumble about, although a fix is sure to come.
On the other hand, it may be worth remembering COD: Vanguard Zombies was completely unplayable not long ago, with excessive visual glitches spoiling the experience for a significant number of players. Overall, the community hasn’t been thrilled with the state of the game for a while, and it’s easy to see why.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series platforms.
