Call of Duty: Vanguard has its fair share of bugs and glitches, and the list seems to grow with each passing day. Recently, a new elevator glitch has started to gain traction as it sees Call of Duty: Vanguard players floating in the sky.
For Call of Duty: Vanguard players who are willing to risk making the mistake in the game, the process of achieving it is remarkably simple. The first thing players will want to do is find a corner of a structure or wall that they can use for blind shooting. Once one of these areas is found, players simply need to place a drop-down cover next to the wall, getting as close to it as possible. If you hold down the fire button blindly, the player's screens will shake and then float up into the sky. The elevator failure was featured by @CronusNac on Twitter, and the first clip took place on the Castle map.
Players will slowly float in the air while holding the blind fire button, which means they can reach great heights. Interestingly, they don't crash instantly, which is why players have been using the bug to fool their opponents in online play. Once @CronusNac releases the fire button blindly, they slowly descend from above, able to shoot everything below with ease. While Call of Duty: Vanguard snipers are sure to keep using this cheat until it's patched, it's important to know that it has its limits. As shown in the Castle clip, players should not use it to try to get outside of the map points.
When the Twitter user floats down from the sky, he breaks through the roof of the castle and stands where he originally started to float. The glitch also requires several seconds to set up, so it could be difficult to set up within a busy public gaming room.
Regardless, it should keep things cool until it gets fixed. The second clip from @CronusNac sees the player performing a trick, hitting someone on a rooftop as they descend from the sky. The clip also shows that the flaw will appear on Call of Duty: Vanguard security cameras, so players concerned about being reported may want to avoid doing so at the end of a match. While the bug isn't strong enough to ruin games, players may want to start looking at the sky every now and then.
While the elevator failure will surely be addressed in a future Call of Duty: Vanguard patch, Sledgehammer is already working on fixes for various other bugs. As such, it may take a while before the developer finds out about the floating cheats.
