Why You Should Never Use This Unlimited Ammo Glitch In Call Of Duty: Vanguard

A new glitch that would seem to give players a major advantage has popped up in "Call of Duty: Vanguard." Unfortunately for those who try this exploit, it's not as useful as it first appears. 

As with any first-person shooter multiplayer experience, maintaining a fair and level playing field is paramount to ensuring the new game's success. In this regard, the release of "Call of Duty: Vanguard" has been pretty rocky at best. Since its beta phase, the latest "Call of Duty" entry has polarized longtime fans of the series and run into issues with cheaters ruining the experience for other players. The cheating problem immediately became so bad that developer Sledgehammer had to threaten cheaters with bans across every "Call of Duty" game "past, present, and future." Ever since this announcement, the first season of "Call of Duty: Vanguard" has more or less continued to move along just fine.

Recently, however, a glitch has emerged in "Vanguard" that seemingly gives players infinite ammo. Of course, granting a player unlimited ammunition to fire upon their enemies seems like a game-breaking glitch that would spoil the experience for everyone on the opposing team. However, most players won't bother utilizing the glitch, thanks to a severe disadvantage that comes with it.

Vanguard's infinite ammo glitch is useless

The "unlimited ammo" glitch was first reported on the "Call of Duty: Vanguard" subreddit by user hallmonitor53. In order for the glitch to work, players must swap to a 1911 pistol using full-auto mode before changing it to single-fire mode. If done in the correct order, the player will be able to continuously shoot the gun without depleting ammo. The original post directly called for the game's developers to fix it, fearing that the glitch could be exploited by cheaters. 

However, many of the replies on the post indicate that if the glitch is triggered, the gun won't actually deal any damage to the opposition. Redditor tessib2 remarked that the glitched weapon "doesn't even register shots nor [hit markers] either," making this "exploit" strictly visual.

Hallmonitor53 later followed up on the original post, explaining that they tested the glitch in a private lobby. Of their experience, Hallmonitor said, "If you add full auto to the 1911 then select it to single shot it makes the gun never run out of ammo and when you try to throw grenades or look down sights nothing happens." Basically, using this glitch renders pretty much all of your offensive capabilities unusable. 

For now, the unlimited ammo glitch in "Call of Duty: Vanguard" is nothing to worry about, nor is it something players should do if they're hoping to gain an unfair advantage.
