Activision is giving away free CoD points to Vanguard players

For some reason, Call of Duty: Vanguard players just woke up with 5,000 free CoD points in their accounts after the April 27 update.

Following the game's major Season 3 update, players are reporting free CoD points in their accounts all of a sudden.

Mind you, 5,000 CoD points are worth roughly around $39.99 / £34.99, which is not a small thing.

It will be interesting to see what kind of backlash awaits once the controversial publisher starts rolling back the CoD points that it had given away.

For what it's worth, some users are suggesting that the 5,000 CoD Points are a reward and not free.

One, in particular, reports that they received the CoD points after completing all the Season 3 Zombies challenges.

Hopefully, this is the case, but if not, we're hoping that Activision doesn't ban the accounts of players who spent their free CoD points.
