Vanguard players want friendly player collision removed
Players are now asking Call of Duty: Vanguard to remove friendly player collision from the game, due to blocking in spawns and doors.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is no stranger to a variety of issues both expected and not, but one of the most annoying issues that pops up from time to time, according to players, is collisions within the same team. Namely, the community is now asking the developers to disable friendly player collision entirely to avoid getting stuck in doors and such.
As it stands, each player character in a match of Call of Duty: Vanguard has its own collision zone, meaning other players, friends or not, can’t just walk through them, if they want or need to. It’s a simple and sensible feature, but it also means friendly players can’t shoot each other, or advance through a door if a friend ends up blocking it.
Players cite major gameplay issues that can occur due to the presence of friendly collisions, such as getting stuck in spawn areas, getting killed because another player is blocking the only viable passage, and a variety of other similar problems. Some are even team killer friendlies that cause these traffic jams in the first place, simply because there is no way around them in some cases, and players want this issue added to the list of fixes essential for Call of Duty: Vanguard.
With recent reports indicating that the annual release schedule for Call of Duty is disputed, chances are the developers will have to dig deeper and keep rolling out fixes for Avant-garde over a longer period of time. Curiously, some players recalled that Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War these same issues persisted for some time, although friendly collisions were eventually disabled.
It should be noted that the possible future launch of Ground War in Call of Duty: Vanguard would put more emphasis on these issues with a larger portion of players. Since positioning is key and choke points always end up being heavily contested, frustrations with how friendly player collisions currently work can become a major concern. Riot Shields, in particular, currently deflect friendly and enemy projectiles, which is bad news for groups of players trying to work together to defend a location.
Additionally, the game has a whole host of other issues that should be fixed sooner rather than later. One such bug, for example, is where attack dogs float in Avant-garde, resulting in unintended mid-game hilarity when this happens. It’s far from the potential deal breaker that friendly collision issues can end up being, but it also shatters any semblance of immersion.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series platforms.
