Sledgehammer Games has addressed visibility levels negatively impacting the game for many players, including the bright sun glare that occurred on several maps. For PC players, Twitter user @KIRNEILL managed to change one of the advanced options found within Vanguard's files.

Unfortunately, this fix only works for PC players, meaning that console players could still encounter the bright glare on the odd occasion.
