The process of downloading the update can be tedious with all the waiting around but thanks to these handy tips and tricks, there are several ways to speed up the process. In this guide, find out how to download the Season 1 updates for Warzone Pacific and Vanguard as fast as possible!
Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 1 Start Date
Season 1 of Warzone Pacific and Vanguard will commence on December 8th, with Vanguard players getting early access to Caldera on December 7th.
How To Download Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 1 Update Fast
PS4 and PS5 players should be able to preload the update a few days prior to the launch of Season 1. To download the update as fast as possible, make sure that there are no applications running in the background in order to guarantee a fast download speed.
Another method to update Warzone and Vanguard quickly involves placing the console into Rest Mode. This will increase the speed of the update, allowing you to complete the download as quickly as possible. To guarantee a stable internet connection throughout the download, plug an ethernet cable into the back of the console to ensure nothing interrupts the update.
The Season 1 updates should begin to download automatically but if they don't head into 'Games & Apps' and select 'Updates.' The Vanguard and Warzone updates should be listed there and can be started manually. Just like PlayStation, the best way to ensure the update downloads as fast as possible is by using an ethernet cable. If you don't have one to hand, try moving the console closer to the router for a faster speed and less interference.
Call of Duty updates on PC may take longer than their console counterparts thanks to the temporary copying room that's often required. Before you begin downloading the updates, make sure there's enough hard drive space and be sure to run a speed test to check if your internet speed is up to the task.
Following these tips will guarantee the update will download in no time at all. As soon as we know information on the download sizes for each platform, we will update this article with everything you need to know. In the meantime, check out all of the new guns and Operators arriving in Season 1!
