Call of Duty: Vanguard is a brand new Call of Duty game. But it still has much in common with other games in the series. And one of those similarities is the wide range of errors that afflict the game. With COD: Vanguard error Hunter-Gruber, we at least get an error code with an interesting name. But even if it makes the error sound like a hapless character from a 1980s British sitcom, it still proves to be a pain point when it hits. So with that in mind, here's what to do, if you are affected by it.
