Call of Duty: Vanguard update makes adjustments to spawns

Sledgehammer Games has released a new update for Call of Duty: Vanguard that makes a couple of changes to map spawns.

According to the patch notes, Hardpoint spawn locations have been moved “slightly further from the third hill” and the Control initial spawn location has been moved further back on Tuscan. Additionally, Gavutu’s Control spawn locations have been adjusted “to avoid putting the player in immediate danger.”
