Call of Duty: Vanguard had its first Alpha over the weekend, and we've already had the first error. What is Vanguard Error Code Hunter-Gruber, and how does it effect CoD Vanguard? Let's take a look at how to fix Call of Duty: Vanguard's Error Code Hunter-Gruber.

Yes, you read that right. Call of Duty: Vanguard is not going to be out for another two months, but we already have a pretty major error code to contend with. Annoying, right? Vanguard's Error Code Hunter-Gruber might not be widespread yet, but that's simply because the game isn't bloody out yet. A solid number of Alpha players experienced this particular problem, and due to the nature of the error code, we expect it to be in the final release too. Thus, here's how to fix Vanguard Error Code Hunter-Gruber.

Stick to EarlyGame for those error codes, and for our fantastic Vanguard coverage. Here's a taster:

What is CoD Vanguard's Error Code Hunter-Gruber?

Call of Duty: Vanguard's Error Code Hunter-Gruber is an error that appears when there are problems connecting to the Vanguard servers. This could be caused either by internet connectivity issues on the player's part, or by server issues on Activision's end. The Hunter-Gruber Error occurred for a number of players during the Vanguard Alpha, and thus we believed it was worth giving you some tips-and-tricks on how to fix server connectivity problems.

It is not unusual, nor unlikely, that a game in its Alpha will suffer some issues. It's an Alpha, after all, so it's the first public version of the game, and will be used for fixing bugs and glitches, as well as making the game a generally better experience to play. Why, then, did I mention that the Vanguard Hunter-Gruber Error Code will probably be in the final release? Well, no matter how many bugs and glitches a developer fixes, there will always be occasional server problems, or problems with player's internet connections. Thus, Error Code Hunter-Gruber is here to stay...

Keep in mind that these CoD Vanguard Error Code Hunter-Gruber fixes will not work for everyone, and are based on the presumption that the error is being caused by player's internet connection. These fixes are also liable to change once the Beta has launched, as well as the main-game in November.
