How to Fix Audio Issues in Call of Duty Vanguard?
Check for Correct Audio Output
Before anything else, you need to check if you have chosen the correct audio output. Not picking the right output can often result in a lack of audio whenever you play games like Vanguard or browse media.
To check this, you need to head over to the bottom right of your screen. Here, on the Taskbar, you should find a Speaker icon. Right-click on it to open Sound Settings. Here, you should have the option to pick your choice of audio device. Pick the right one, and then try to relaunch Call of Duty Vanguard. You should see your problem rectifying itself now.

The next step you can take to try and rectify the audio issues in Call of Duty Vanguard is by heading to the game itself. To do so, you first need to launch COD Vanguard.

Here, you will be able to check if you have selected the correct audio device for the game. You can also choose to click on Play Campaign Audio Test or Play Multiplayer Audio Test. Once you are completely sure you have chosen the right option, try to check if the game’s audio issues continue to persist. If they do, keep reading this guide for other possible fixes.
Use Audio Jack
If you usually use Bluetooth headphones or the kind of headphones that use a USB port to connect to your PC, we recommend you try using audio devices that require a 3.5mm jack to connect. If these headphones work perfectly on your PC, you will find it really easy to identify the cause of the audio issues in Call of Duty Vanguard. In the event that the 3.5mm earphones work well, it is very likely that there might be an issue with your Bluetooth or USB headphones.
However, if earphones with a 3.5mm jack too fail to work, you might need to keep reading this guide for other possible solutions.
Restart Call of Duty Vanguard
Another really simple solution could be to just restart Vanguard after closing it. There is a very small possibility that doing so might just about correct any audio issues that you come across when you play the game. If this step does not help your cause, check out the other solutions in this guide.
Restart your PC
A lot of players claim that a simple step like restarting their devices tends to help solve issues that are similar to the audio problems in COD Vanguard. Once you restart your computer, connect your audio device, and then launch Call of Duty. Now, try to see if you still come across the issues. If yes, check out the next solutions in this guide.
Update your Audio Drivers
An out-of-date audio driver on your PC could most likely be one of the culprits behind issues with sound. We recommend that you make sure you are always using the latest audio drivers. However, we only recommend you do so if you are facing issues with sound throughout your computer, and not just with COD Vanguard.
And that’s it. These are all of the possible solutions to the audio issues in Call of Duty Vanguard. As you can see, most of these solutions are really simple to execute, so you should not face any trouble.
