All Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Known Issues and Bugs

Activision launched the newest addition to the Call of Duty franchise – Modern Warfare 2 which is a complete overhaul of the older Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. With the release, came tons of bugs and issues that players all over the world are facing. This is an amalgamation of all the bugs, and issues along with fixes if any.

Dying Randomly on the 6th Mission (Cartel Protection)

What’s worse than dying? Dying to something and not knowing what it is.

anyone else having something happen on the 6th mission.

I LEGIT JUST DROP DEAD!!!!!!

Fix: Restarting the game will fix the bug.

Texture Quality Slowly Degrades

The game is looking kinda trashy.

they slowly downgrade in quality as you play, is it even normal, they can go down in quality even in the middle of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and never go back until you restart the game? using 3080 and 12900k, and yes the game is on SSD

This is a persistent issue and a major part of the player base is facing this issue with no fix currently in sight.

Not Respawning After Dying

Firstly, you die to bots and then you won’t respawn. The day just couldn’t get any better.

theres a bug where the game wont let me respawn after dying as it just sits on a black screen with all the background noise…

Fix: The only fix for this issue is to ALT+F4 and restart your game.

Game Stutters After Respawning

Coming back to life only to be welcomed by lag.

If I die and resume my last checkpoint, my framerate tanks for a few seconds before it gets better again. Anyone else experience this or know if there’s a particular setting maybe causing it?

Can’t connect to the servers (Hueneme Concord error)

Let me play the game!!!!!

Can’t play the campaign because of that dumb error. I started everything new (including router etc.) and this game don’t give a ♥♥♥♥. So much crap and such a waste of money

Fix: There are a few fixes that you can try to help resolve this issue.

  • Restart your game
  • Restart your router after 15 seconds of turning it off.
  • Go to game files in your steam library. Search and delete “data0”, “data1”, “tac0”, and “tac1” file. Then start your game.
  • Update your router’s firmware.

Game Crash on 11th Mission (El Sin Nombre)

SPOILER ALERT!! Skip this point if you haven’t played the game.

I dont want to spoil anything but my game crashed while entering penthouse and now it keeps crashing on exact same moment every time, cant play through campain, anyone found fix yet?

Fix: Restart the game to fix the issue.

DLSS Setting is Messed Up

Paying so much money for a game, only for it look bad.

Is anyone else having issues with the image and lighting quality when using DLSS? Textures appear blurry, lighting is poor and sharp edges can be seen throughout the sky. The game is completely unplayable like this. If I switch to FidelityFX, everything looks significantly better, however the framerate drops to 30-40fps (as opposed to getting 110-120fps with DLSS or any of the other upscalers enabled. Makes no sense to me. Running an RTX3060 and an i7-12700k 4.9GHz at 1440p for reference.

Can’t Stand On Top of The APC Tank

It’s a tank, I will stand on top of it. The game thinks otherwise.

Standing on top of the roof of the vehicle results in “***** captors got away”

Fix: Restarting the mission fixes the issue.

FPS Drop During the 1st Mission (Strike)

Lag. My biggest enemy.

Did anyone get a decent fps drop on the first mission after fighting in the helicopter? Once you and your team head into a field the frames just drop. Is it something to do with lighting?

“Time is Mission” Achievement Error

Give me my rewards, please.

I have completed the mission several times now under 4 minutes. However, the Achievment is not unlocked. I had no problems with the other missions. Is it similar to someone? Or does anyone have a solution

Game Not Launching, 18 Files Missing

Who are these files and where do I get them?

Activision fix your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ cashgrab game. There is no support for bugs or crashes and this launch has been shambolic. For anyone who knows how to fix and be able to even start the name, please let me know 🙂

Fix: You can check out our detailed guide on how to fix the crashing issue.
