League of Legends
Call of Duty
The visibility in multiplayer that has spawned complaints from players is seemingly only getting worse in Call of Duty: Vanguard. After the Season 1 Battle Pass went live, players began noticing that the Constanze Operator skin causes them to actually become invisible at certain ranges in Vanguard.
The skin glitch adds to the laundry list of glitches that Sledgehammer Games needs to fix in Vanguard.
Vanguard’s invisible Operator skin
Players can unlock this specific Operator skin at Tier 50 of the Battle Pass. It’s called Urbane and can be equipped for Constanze, one of the Operators in the Sentinel class. The skin is red in color and blends in with some surfaces on maps in Vanguard. Of course, this doesn’t mean this skin should be completely invisible to players at certain ranges.
Sorry to ruin the fun humans & I'm not sure if this skin is still GA but this game gets worse and worse every day, New Constanze skin where her body disappears if you are at a certain angle or range. pic.twitter.com/rZetJ0tlza

As the player in the video showcases, the Urbane skin causes players to completely disappear when looking at them. All the player in the video saw was a floating blue nameplate. To an enemy, the nameplate might not appear, allowing players using the skin to get a free kill.
In another video, LA Thieves professional player Sam “Octane” Larew showcases the skin becoming invisible from a much closer angle.

For what it’s worth, both of these clips were on the map Tuscan, which matches the Urbane skin’s color scheme. It’s unclear whether the glitch is more prominent on this specific map but, regardless, Sledgehammer Games has some work to do with that particular Battle Pass skin. For now, though, players who reach Tier 50 on the pass can become invisible to their enemies.
