Call of Duty: Vanguard has now had its initial playtesting and the first error are coming out of the woodwork. One of the most common our readers have reported is a Vanguard error connecting to online services. So, let's take a look at how to fix it.

A decent number of playtesters experienced this particular problem through the alpha and beta, and due to the nature of the error, we expect it to be in the final release too.

With an error like this; when you're told there was a problem connecting to online services but you haven't been given a specific error code, it's usually server-side. This is good because it means it should be fixed in a short time regardless, but sometimes it actually is an error on your end. And that's where things get trickier.
