Why does the COD Vanguard server always crash while taking a snapshot? These factors could be at blame for this malfunction: NAT-type domination mode bug, not open
You have now seen some of the potential causes of the Vanguard server snapshot problem. So, what should we do to fix this issue? Read on for further explanation.
Vanguard Server Snapshot Error
Method 1: Stay Out of Dominance Mode.
Some users claim that the COD Vanguard server snapshot fault occurred during Domination mode. If this happens, try to avoid playing in Domination mode. You can play your game in the following settings to disable this error:
Teams of four compete in a deathmatch for patrol control of a hardpoint in a confirmed kill, search, and destroy mode.
Please attempt the following solution if you do not play Domination mode but are still seeing the issue notice.
Method 2: Ensure Your NAT Is Visible
The Vanguard server snapshot error can also occur if your NAT (Network Address Translation) is closed. As such, you should examine your NAT type to see if it is open. There are three methods to verify and alter the NAT type, each specific to a different platform.
1. Make Sure You Know Your Xbox’s NAT Type (Xbox One)
Step 1. To access the Guide on an Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S, use the Xbox button.
Step 2. Follow Step 2 and select All Settings from the System menu.
Step 3. Third, head to the Settings tab and select the Networking subheading.
Step 4. Lastly, under “Current Network Status,” you can see if the NAT Type column is open or closed.
Step 5. Fifth, if you discover that your NAT is closed, you can modify the NAT type by enabling UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) in your router’s configurations.
2. For PC
If you play Call of Duty: Vanguard on a personal computer, you should check the NAT type in the following ways.
Step 1. Start by pressing the Win + S keys on your keyboard, then in the search box type xbox console companion, then hit the Enter key.
Step 2. Select the Network tab in the Settings menu (the gear icon) in the lower left corner of the Xbox Console Companion app.
Step 3. Lastly, in Step 3, you’ll be able to verify the NAT type’s current state. If your network address translation (NAT) setup is not open, you can enable UPnP in your router’s configuration.
3. For PS4 And PS5, Verify the NAT Type
This is a comprehensive instruction on how to determine the NAT type on a PS4 or PS5:
Step 1. First, from the Playstation’s main dashboard, select Settings, and then, from the submenu that appears, select Network.
Step 2. The next step is to go to View Connection Status and see if the NAT type is Type 2. If it isn’t already, make sure UPnP is turned on in your router’s preferences.
When you’re done, launch COD Vanguard to see if the server snapshot error has been resolved.
