[Updated] COD Warzone, Modern Warfare, & Black Ops Cold War bug/issue/problem tracker: Reported, officially acknowledged, & more

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 12, 2021) follows:

The Call of Duty (COD) franchise has offered some of the finest first-person shooter games. With recent entries like the COD Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War, the franchise has taken its multiplayer universe to another level.

However, such multiplayer games with a virtually endless player base often fall victim to bugs and issues.


To recall, COD Warzone players have been reporting about several issues including ‘Dev error 5573’, ‘Error code RUGBY’, and a lot more.

On the other hand, issues like ‘Dev error 6034’, the Cruise and Predator missile slow speed, and more have been troubling COD Modern Warfare players.

Also, the latest entry in the Black Ops series, COD Black Ops Cold War, has seen issues like the ‘Bravo 433 destructive gator’ error and more.

All in all, it is hard to keep tabs on the exact number of users playing these games. And with the evolution of multiplayer gaming, such bugs and issues are quite natural as long as they are being taken care of.

While many major bugs and issues with such games get resolved on priority, some are left for another time or are even forgotten over time.

Moreover, it is virtually impossible to resolve each and every issue in such massive games. That’s where workarounds may come in handy but even they do not guarantee a flawless gaming experience.


All that concerned players can do is stay updated with the latest info about any bugs and issues. Activsion is maintaining individual Known Issues trackers for the COD Warzone, Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War.

However, players can also easily find all the bugs and issues present in the aforementioned titles along with their current status and any workarounds in this consolidated tracker.

Furthermore, we will regularly update the tracker below as and when new details regarding any COD bugs and issues come to light. So, keep a weather eye on this post.

Update 1 (July 13)

02:45 pm (IST): Treyarch Community Manager Josh Torres responded to a user’s complaint regarding the Zombies freezing glitch after every kill in Cold War by confirming that the info will be passed to the team according to a report. Hopefully, this results in a quick fix.

02:55 pm (IST): Apart from that, a streamer found a glitch in Warzone that allows invulnerable players to parachute into the Gulag and kill opponents without any resistance as per a report.

Update 2 (July 15)

01:22 pm (IST): The latest update for Warzone brings a boatload of fixes and improvements to the game including a fix for the Dev error 5573 issues and the Xbox One S crashing when loading into Verdansk Playlists.

Update 3 (July 16)

01:17 pm (IST): Warzone players will be relieved to know that the Dead Silence is being nerfed thanks to the new changes added to the High Alert perk that will allow players to head footsteps even if the enemy has the Dead Silence perk. Finally! A much-needed change.

Further, Raven Software has released a new patch that removes the ability to edit your loadouts in the pre-game lobby as a temporary fix for the unlimited dead silence bug.

Update 4 (July 17)

IST 01:37 pm: While the “Error code: Diver” or “Error code: 6” issue has been fixed, those who are still facing the problem can try workarounds like restarting the game or try setting a static IP and enable Port Forwarding in the WiFi router settings.

Apart from that, Raven Software support has said that they have released a fix for an issue where players are experiencing long queue times for matches.

We are aware Players are seeing long queue times for matches.

We have just deployed a fix and match queue times should begin to normalize.

IST 04:00 pm: As per multiple reports, COD Black Ops Cold War players have been facing a bug in the Mauer der Toten Easter Egg map where they are unable to craft Uranium devices. However, the said bug has been acknowledged officially. More details here.

Update 10 (July 27)

IST 11:20 pm: Several players have demanded that the game should remove the flashes and stuns when fighting in Gulag.

The in-game flashes and stuns last for like 7 seconds and are almost a guaranteed kill if you land them right.

We really hope the developers remove or nerf them in some form since a lot of users seem to be frustrated by the same.

Moreover, players are reporting a Memory Error 19-1793. They say it is affecting their gameplay, sometimes crashing the game multiple times. It is affecting both PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Also, several users have reported that they are stuck on a black screen whenever they win a game. It leads to the game crashing and not recording their win which directly affects the leaderboard stats.

We hope Raven Software all these game-breaking bugs as soon as possible.

Update 11 (July 29)

IST 15:10 pm: More bugs are being reported by COD Warzone fans. Players reported that they are unable to change the operator’s skin, with the game kicking them back to the main screen.

The Special Ops Pro pack also seems to be having an issue with players reporting that they only see the default skin instead of the Portanova operator skin.

A similar bug is making the rounds where players see a different skin instead of the Hypersonic skin.

Update 12 (July 30)

IST 12:00 pm: Ever since the release of Season 4 Reloaded Update, users have been reporting a bug with the ChainSAW Stock’s ViewModel. It seems like COD Warzone developers forgot the fix the issue. The bug affects the Finn LMG.

It basically blocks the player’s sight making it harder to locate or aim at the enemy even when using ADS.

Also, players say that the Finn LMG is broken in the sense that it only shows the barrel of the gun. The bug lets users fire the gun as if they are firing from the hip.

02:13 pm: The reticle bug in COD has officially been acknowledged and as such, it is only a matter of time before it is addressed. More on that here.

Apart from that, there are also a couple of new workarounds that you can try out in case you’re facing issues with the Multiplayer packs on the PS5. Check them out here.
