Sledgehammer Games tossed a few minor changes and fixes onto Call of Duty: Vanguard live servers Thursday, April 7, adjusting spawns on a few locations and making the Armaguerra 43 audible even when silenced, among other changes.

Spawn points have been a sore spot in Call of Duty games for generations, and Sledgehammer continues to fine-tune them in Vanguard. This latest round of adjustments include changing the Hardpoint spanwn locations on Tuscan to be slightly further from the third hill, and the same map's first Control spawn location has been moved further back. Gavutu also had some of its spawns for Control changed to avoid putting players in danger as soon as they spawn.

See the full list of adjustments below.
