Here’s the crux of the article in video form

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

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

COD: Modern Warfare 2 is now fully up and running with some amazing gameplay features. It has three different editions, action-packed campaigns, multiplayer maps, various game modes, and more.

However, the presence of certain bugs hampering players’ experience is inevitable. For instance, the issue where campaign progress kept resetting and the broken game chat feature was quite irksome for some.

COD: Modern Warfare 2 ‘Daily Challenge’ not working

A number of COD: Modern Warfare 2 players (1,2,3,4,5,6) have now been reporting an issue where the game is not working or tracking Daily Challenges, especially with battle rifles.


And surprise surprise, bonus daily challenge not tracking again, day 3 in a row. I’m owed 30,000 XP at this rate @InfinityWard @Activision

@InfinityWard the daily challenge in #MW2 #MWII for battle rifles isn’t tracking which means the large XP challenge isn’t possible either m

Reports suggest that some players are stuck on a particular challenge as the game is not tracking their progress. This is further preventing them from getting to the bonus challenge.

Even after accomplishing numerous kills with battle rifles, it doesn’t track anything and hinders their progress.

This is quite frustrating because the game’s inability to track its challenges is rendering players’ efforts useless.

Potential workaround

We have come across a workaround that can help fix the issue where Modern Warfare 2 Daily Challenge is not working. You can check it out below:

Use the Lachmann, its the only one i get consistent kills/headshots counted for.

Unfortunately, the developers haven’t acknowledged the issue yet so affected players can try the workaround mentioned above for the time being.

We’ll keep tabs on the latest developments and update this story as and when something noteworthy comes up.
