Activision is investigating reports of players experiencing crashes within Modern Warfare and Warzone, following the recent update and launch of Season 6. They’ve asked for players to “stay tuned for updates” as they investigate the issue. One user on Twitter, Manish Tirkey, posted a screenshot of an error screen, citing that the in-game crashes had occurred “twice in 2 hours.”
Via the Modern Warfare Reddit, players voiced their frustrations about the post-update crashes. Reddit user u/StampedeTC says that following every match, they’d receive an error code, with another user citing that the update broke the game, describing people as “invisible”, and calling the game’s lag “insane”.
Another Reddit user confirmed the issue with lag and a “rubber banding effect.” The user says this had started following the launch of the Black Ops Cold War Alpha last week.
The alpha for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ran from September 18-20, containing three 6v6 modes on two maps, including Domination, and 12v12 Combined Arms.
