Call of Duty fans across the world are digging into the Vanguard multiplayer beta, but an insane spawn system issue is infuriating players.
The Call of Duty: Vanguard beta has opened the floodgates, as PlayStation users are among the first to get an exclusive hands-on experience.
Featuring the likes of gunfight-inspired Champion Hill and classic Team Deathmatch, players are already learning the best tactics and loadouts to employ. Sometimes an exceptional loadout isn’t enough to overcome the enemy.
Players are growing increasingly frustrated, as the beta’s downright broken spawn system is hindering the multiplayer fun.
Ridiculous spawns are trapping players
Spawn systems have always been a prevalent point of conversation in the history of CoD, and it’s a problem that may never be truly fixed, although the developers sweat to improve it.

Even the Dexerto team is encountering some truly strange problems. Spawn issues are ranging from players popping in out of thin air in bizarre places or simply finding themselves trapped in a filthy gunfire trap.
Teleporting into the map might make sense if it was behind friendly lines, but players are still finding themselves thrust into unfair zones. At the time of writing, the problems are specifically appearing on the Hotel Royal map.

Disgruntled players hopefully won’t have long to wait before a hotfix is applied, as the developers are on the case already.
“We are aware of spawn issues on Patrold and are deploying a fix to adjust spawn logic.”
