Other players are the biggest threat to your life once you land on CoD Warzone’s Verdansk map. Before many players even get there, though, Error 13-71 has been preventing them from being able to play the game at all. In this guide, we’ll run through what Warzone’s Error 13-71 is, as well as how to fix it for you Xbox One players.
‘Memory Error 13-71’ is a bug that can affect both Call of Duty: Warzone players and those wanting to play Modern Warfare. The game doesn’t do anything to explain what causes Error 13-71, or even what it means, so players are left to figure it out themselves.
Fixing Error 13-71 in Warzone
There are a few different ways players have been able to fix error 13-71, with varying degrees of success. Some work for some but not others, while some methods seem to have a much higher overall success rate. We’ve listed these below for your convenience from the most effective to the least.
The Best Method to Fix Error 13-71
The easiest way to fix the error is to simply uninstall Warzone (and/ or Modern Warfare) and reinstall the entire game. The problem with doing this is that you’re looking at downloading and installing 100GB + all over again, which can take some serious time for those on slower internet connections.
Option 2 – Leaving a Regiment
Option 2 and Option 3 are largely the same in what they tell you to do, but option 3 is a little more long-winded, so we’ll leave that until last.
For this one, you want to simply load up Warzone and press B to cancel connecting to the servers and going online. This will enable you to play ‘Offline.’
Go to your account settings by pressing the ‘Menu’ button on your Xbox controller (the right-center button) use RB to highlight the ‘Account’ tab. Turn off the ‘Crossplay’ option. Go to load up Warzone and the game will tell you Crossplay needs to be enabled in order to play.
Back out and go back into the Social Menu by pressing Y. This time, remove any Regiment you’re a part of and then go back into the account settings and turn Crossplay back on. When you now try to load up Warzone, you should no longer be hit with Error 13-71 in Warzone.
Option 3 – Creating a New Profile
This one is a bit of a pain, but it does appear to work pretty well for some players if you’re willing to go through with it.
For this, you’ll need to create an entire new Gamertag or ‘profile’ on your Xbox. This means using a new email address and entering all those personal details for the account.
Once you’ve done this, load up Warzone (or Modern Warfare) and ensure you’re signed in with the new profile.
When the game has loaded up, switch your profile to your ‘normal’ Gamertag.
Once this loads the game up, open up the Social menu by pressing Y and remove yourself from any ‘Regiments’ that you’re a part of. A lot of players believe that Warzone and Modern Warfare’s in-game clan system (Regiments) is the cause for the issue. Though other players who are not part of a Regiment have also been hit with Error 13-71 in Warzone.
That being said, those that have been a part of a Regiment and faced the error have had some good success with this option.
