Before presenting a few solutions, this issue seems to be plaguing players who do not own Modern Warfare 2. Warzone 2.0 is a free-to-play experience, so you do not need to buy MW2 in order to play Warzone. Below are a potential handful of solutions that may clear up your problem:

  • Install the Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Files.
    • It may sound crazy, but when installing Warzone, it seems the game doesn’t fully install all the necessary files needed to play the game. Multiplayer is an essential pillar of Warzone, and you may be missing the files needed.
    • Head into your settings, and at the bottom, it will say “Manage Files“. If you are missing the multiplayer files, download them, and it should resolve your problem.
  • Restart your game and check for updates.
    • One of the most frequently occurring issue is trying to play a title on the older version, which causes a disconnect. Close out your game, check for updates, and retry Warzone 2.0.
  • Contact Activision support.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
