How to Download Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 2 Update Fast

There is a multitude of methods that can increase the speed of the download and having tried and tested many of them, we've found that these techniques work the best.


PS4 and PS5 players should be able to preload the update a few days prior to the launch of Season 2. 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 2 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.
