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

Original story (published on November 14, 2022) follows:

COD: Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most anticipated games in recent years. Since its release it has been a best seller for Activision, boasting tens of thousands of simultaneous players daily.

MW2 devs have organized special promotions across multiple platforms and companies. One of the promotions includes exclusive items that can be obtained on the Mountain Dew gaming website.


However, currently many COD: Modern Warfare 2 players are unable to redeem promo codes in Mountain Dew gaming due to the website not working.

Mountain Dew gaming website not working, players cannot redeem COD: Modern Warfare 2 promo

Activision and Mountain Dew (the popular carbonated drinks company) have teamed up so that COD: Modern Warfare 2 can get some benefits by consuming some of their products.

By purchasing certain ‘specially-marked’ Mountain Dew bottles or packs, MW2 players will receive a code. With the code, they can get a special skin, 2XP bonus and some COD points.

But according to multiple reports, the codes to claim COD: Modern Warfare 2 special items through the Mountain Dew gaming website are currently unusable.

Mountain Dew / Activision Authorization Error

Basically title. When attempting to link my Activision Account on Mountain Dew’s website, I get past the 2fa, but when selecting “Authorize”, it always brings me to a “Error Connecting Activision Account” screen.

anyone else can’t load the mountain dew redeem website? wont load for me

it hasn’t been loading for me for about 2 hours. not sure if it’s my internet or if the website is down. need 2 more golden guns and can’t redeem any codes right now. lmk if it works for y’all

For some gamers, the Mountain Dew gaming website loads very slowly. However, they managed to link their COD accounts and receive the special items.

It’s really janky but I managed it on PS4 browser. Mostly because you can snap to the next input using the d-pad if that makes sense. But yeah, page was totally broken and due to the dark background I couldn’t see shit.

Super slow, but sorta working

There is still no official acknowledgment of this issue from the Mountain Dew or Activision teams. We will update this story as events unfold.
