Warzone 2 & MW2 Error Code 14008: Developers Confirm Fix
Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2’s Season Two Reloaded dropped on March 15 after much anticipation. The mid-season update brought huge changes to both titles, including a raft of weapon buffs and nerfs that finally saw the KV Broadside shotgun weakened significantly.
However, as is natural in the aftermath of major updates, some players have reported encountering bugs, glitches and error codes that inhibit normal service on Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
Error Code 2901 emerged and caused plenty of players problems and, now, Infinity Ward developers have addressed and implemented a fix for Error Code 14008, which has been disconnecting players after the Season Two Reloaded update.
In a March 16 tweet, they confirmed they’re investigating and that the issue has been identified as affecting those with new Activision accounts: “We’re currently investigating an issue impacting newly created ATVI accounts receiving error code 14008,” they said. “Existing ATVI accounts encountering a disconnect error when attempting to link other accounts for the first time may also be impacted. Stay tuned for updates.”
Shortly after, the devs confirmed they have implemented a fix for the issue, so it should no longer affect players on MW2 or Warzone 2.
They tweeted: “This issue has been resolved and account linking is working normally again for all users.”
How To Fix Error Code 14008: Potential Solutions
Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there doesn’t appear to be a consistent and reliable fix for Error Code 14008. Hopefully, now it’s been addressed and rectified by the devs, most players won’t need one.
Some users did report that restarting their game allowed them to bypass the issue, so that should definitely be a starting point for any players currently struggling with it.
If you’re a seasoned player on an old Activision account, the solution may also to play without whichever squad mate has the new account, as frustrating as that is.
