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

Original story (published on October 21, 2022) follows:

COD: Modern Warfare 2 will be available in less than a week (October 28). However, millions of players worldwide have already been able to experience the game in different ways.

First, the open beta offered a closer look at the MW2 multiplayer experience. During beta stage, gamers found issues like crashing on Xbox and game getting stuck while searching for updates.

Also, buyers who pre-ordered the game have early access to the campaign from start to finish right now. This has also allowed to discover some issues to fix in this mode.


Now, COD: Modern Warfare 2 players with access to campaign mode are dealing with other annoying issues where their progress is resetting and some textures are not loading correctly.

COD: Modern Warfare 2 campaign progress resetting (potential workaround)

The first issue directly affects the players’ progress during the campaign. Apparently, COD: Modern Warfare 2 progress is randomly resetting (fully or partially) when exiting the game on some occasions.


Campaign is killer but had an issue

I absolutely am loving the campaign!! I got all the way to the last mission and then my game crashed and I logged back into it to finish the last mission and it sent me all the way back to the convoy trucks mission….

Just lost all campaign progress on PC at the final mission after a crash

Does anyone know if there’s a way I can recover this through steam settings or anything or am I just screwed? I just played like 7 hours of campaign I really don’t wanna do again.

Fortunately for PC gamers, there is a potential workaround that reportedly helps avoid losing progress.

Saw some steam discussion chatter about Windows protected folder access. I turned it off (first google result for windows protected folder acccess), relaunched the game…

…and now I see it creating save files in /user/documents/Call of Duty/players/cod22/**bunchofnumbers**/savegame.svg. Closed it after intro mission and relaunched and it saved my progress.

However, there is no similar workaround yet to help solve the problem on consoles.

COD: Modern Warfare 2 map textures not loading correctly

The other issue affects the general look of the scenarios during the campaign. Multiple reports indicate that COD: Modern Warfare 2 map textures are not loading correctly for some players, for no apparent reason.

Textures impacted by the issue display with little or no detail. The issue may even appear at the highest graphical settings available.

Low resolution textures bug?

Anyone’s having issues with the textures on the campaign? Mine are looking really awful on some places, almost looking like PS1 textures. I’m playing on a 5600x with an RTX 3070 on a SSD on max texture settings with streaming on.

PC seems out of focus?

Is anyone playing the game and it seems like anything other than 10 feet in front of you is extremely out of focus? Super blurry, low res textures. I have screen display set to native resolution (1440p). Super weird.

Unfortunately, there is no workaround to help resolve or mitigate this bug. There is also no official acknowledgment for any of these issues from MW2 developers.

We will update this story as events unfold.

Update 3 (October 28, 2022)

12:19 pm (IST): Call of Duty support has confirmed that the progress resetting issue is a known bug and they are working to resolve it. Moreover, they’ve shared a potential workaround to fix it.

This is a known bug and is currently being fixed. As a workaround,

1. 2. Select the difficulty separately. Proceed as slowly as possible. (Ghost talks about vehicles, pause for a while, etc.)

I hope you can try the above. (Source)(Translated)
