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

Original story (published on October 28, 2022) follows:

Now that Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer has been fully released, fans are eager to try out all of the available content right away.

The game offers a bonus to anyone who pre-orders a digital copy of either Standard Edition or Vault Edition.

The Vault Edition, in particular, includes various items such as Red Team 141, season one Battle Pass, Cinder Weapon Vault, and more.

COD: Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition items missing

But some COD: Modern Warfare 2 players are reporting an issue where the Vault Edition content or items are missing.


I bought the vault edition and now that the games come out, I don’t have the operators, nor the cinder weapons, if anyones had this issue and has managed to fix it please tell me how

Pre ordered the game on my ps5 on the 20th and did not receive the vault edition content! Confirmed via bank statement that it was the vault edition as well!

According to reports, various items like weapons, ghost skin, XP tokens, and bonuses are locked or not working.

Players are also unable to unlock the Vault Edition operators (Price, Ghost, Soap, and Farah) from Red Team 141.

Even more interesting is some COD players who preordered the Vault Edition pack are now required to buy it again.

Official workaround

Fortunately, Infinity Ward has provided COD: Modern Warfare 2 players with an official workaround.


Some players also suggest restarting the console in order to gain access to the missing content.

Restart Console works for me, i got it now

So, those affected will either have to restore their licenses or restart their consoles to unlock the content in Vault Edition.

We hope that the developers figure out a permanent solution so that the missing content starts to show up.

We’ll keep an eye on this issue and update this story to reflect important developments.
