Lots of users are reporting that on Xbox One, digitally, if you pre-loaded Advanced Warfare before the 256MB Day One patch went out, then the game may start re-installing all 46GB again upon unlock at midnight.

As a user on Reddit pointed out, if once the game unlocks, and your percentage is at 99%, you should be good to go as it’s just downloading a 256MB update; however if it is 0% and taking a while…it may be re-downloading it all again. There’s currently no way around this as of now.

    Sucks for the people who digitally pre-ordered the game. Hard copy’s are always the way to go for me.

    • TheShadowReaper

      for day 1 purchases i agree. but for later dates probably not cause the patches and stuff are mostly sorted out.

  • Daniel Sims

    REALLY hoping this doesn’t happen to me.

  • Daniel

    Really hoping this doesnt happen to me, my internet takes 3 days 2 download it, and I pre ordered day 1

  • Sal

    When was this day one patch?

    • Kenny

      I just preloaded the game yesterday. I swear if the update came out today…

      • Waze

        How long did it take to preload?

        • Kenny

          15 hours

        • XLKILLA

          Took forever now I’m re downloading im at 26% after 10 hours this is a nightmare.

          • Aaron A. Abeyta

            same… Well i got the cod xbox One it should of came pre loaded on that bitch but no… I’ve spent a ton of money on the console and still have yet to be able to play the game due to my download 12 hours latter still being at 33%! its ridiculous! I’m so furious because I had friends over as well to play this game with me all night stood up for hours thinking maybe it would go fast… Nope… I have a 60mbps net and still at 33%! this sux..

          • Dalaga

            What percent are you at now I’m still at 30%

          • kyle

            dude I have the same problem I got the cod Xbox and it should have came pre loaded and I was at 50% when the Xbox shut off this shit is ridiculous by time its done its going to be 12 am the net day so much for 24hr early access.

          • Ben

            7%, after 8 hours. Dunno if it’s only in the US region (I bought the game there because HK is restricted – it’s cheaper there) or my net conection, but Titanfall safely downloaded himself on my PC in 5-6 horus. And that was 35 GB…

    • Guest

      That’s what I want to know!

      • zombiefreak935

        12 hours ish, and i have fast internet

        • Bdotson1984

          Took me over a day with 50 down 5 up

    • ccrows

      Just one of the “many” “Many” “MANY” reasons why I got AW for the 360.

      If AW tanks (installing my disk now) then I’m gonna be playing a whole lot more of BO2.

      If Microsoft would have made the 360 backwards compatible (and I don’t want to hear the BS 64 bit architecture excuse cuz they still could have at a slightly higher price) I would have bought the XB1 in 2013 instead of 2015 (while still waiting for Trey 2015)… 🙁

      • Brandon

        How big is the install on the 360?

      • spartanelite

        Not tanking fucking loving this game Imo idk about you thoe 😛

        • ccrows

          *Being Dead Serious* – From a “first impression” so far, I’m kinda disappointed.

          I know people camp hard on day 1 / week 1, but for a game that’s supposed to be “fast”, this has been “ghosts campy” from the lobbies I’ve been in. (both regular & classic)

          & THEY NEED TO MAKE DS A PERK. I’ve already gotten soundwhored killed a few times. IMO Footsteps in this game are loud compared to BO2.

          Meh.. whatever, gonna call it a night but DS as a perk needs to happen and hopefully soon…

          • Brandon

            It’ll all even out soon. Every game is like that at first.

            I would like to know how much the download size is on xbox 360 though, anyone?

          • ccrows

            Been playing since COD2, and for the most part you’re right it will even out. However BO2 wasn’t like that. IDK maybe it’s because BO2 had smaller maps, so you had no choice BUT to move.

            Anywhoo.. I haven’t played since last night, but “the camping and the soundwhoring are real”, and IMO making DS a perk would help both.

            * EDIT – Oh and to answer your other question, AW is taking up 11.6GB on my 360 HD…

          • JuicyJuice

            I personally love DS not being a perk, I’d rather have points for extrra attachments….if people sound whore they sound whore, deal with it…
            My only two complaints are that the servers are EXTREMELY laggy, and the fact that the spawns are horrible at best…

          • Guy

            Only 7 g

          • XLKILLA

            Yea I think the game is shit. Campaign is awful

          • spartanelite

            We’ll the camping thing isn’t the games fault it literally tires to make the game fast and the Devs said if the majority of people Don like exo-silence then they’ll put it it

          • ccrows

            BO2 wasn’t campy (minus Carrier & Turbine which people still camp to this day) in the beginning. Well at least no where near as bad as what I’ve seen so far. Sure there were kids crying about the PDW and the M8 being OP, but at least they moved.

            & IDC if everyone uses it, DS needs to be a perk. “If that helps to get more people to move” then DO IT!

            The audio is like OG BO without using Ninja – AKA a lot louder than the audio levels from BO2. That constant CLOP CLOP CLOP CLOP. It’s just too easy to pick up on that.

            ^ DS NEEDS TO BE A PERK in this game…

    • oddy

      Is anyone else getting the slow echo and reverb from voice chat? Both my wife and I get it at random times. We have 2 Xbox ones and it happens on both. My internet speed is 123 mbps.

  • Bdotson1984

    this will beyond tick me off if this happens.. And will be my last digital pre-order if it does

  • VVFZ

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

    • MeMyself&I

      This is a problem with activision’s part, not Microsoft’s so quit your wining about MS please!

  • king

    If i re install it will that help

    • trumanfilipo

      Yes but it just takes forever

      • Jeremy

        Mine is stuck on 32% will the download start to go faster at midnight? I just pre ordered and started installing it today at around 4:30pm and it is now 11:16 pm and it’s only at 32%

  • Mateo

    guys just re-install it before midnight. you should be able to before then

  • PHAT PETE

    happened to me, i paused the install, turned instant power off, then unplugged my xbox power lead for 30sec, turned it back on unpaused it and it worked.

    • PHAT PETE

      if it fails you can all so hold power the power button on the xbox, hold it down for 10sec,

      • damoenjohn

        So pause the download, hold power down to hard shut off, wait 30 seconds then turn on and then what?

        • Celest1ne

          Try it again. You can also pause download, turn console off, unplug for 30 seconds, the restart the console and try it that way. This is a common thing with the X1.

          • damoenjohn

            I’ll try that if I need to. Still got an hour and a half till 12. Thank you!

          • damoenjohn

            After I turn it back on do I start installing it again or what?

          • Armando M Soza

            Tried that. Didn’t work. I am installing again aka redownloading everything and after an hour in I am at 19%. I don’t even know if it’ll work once it gets to 100%.

      • Devian

        Has this worked for anyone?

        • Samuel Plasse

          Didn’t work for me

          • guest

            Me either..

          • Spaccey

            Same

          • MeMyself&I

            Worked for me! FINALLY! I have been at it for 14 hours and at times the download progress even regressed 10% but I turned it off and unplugged it then left it for a good 5 minutes, came back and restarted it and it finally started to download at a decent pace! I am at 95% now so I am getting my hopes up!

  • WTEO

    If this happens to me tonight, I’m going to be fucking irate, and will be promptly trading in my Xbox for a PS4 tomorrow. Especially seeing as how that download takes over A DAY TO INSTALL. If it didn’t take so fucking long, I wouldn’t give a shit.

    • Guest

      If u hate things not working properly I don’t think a PS4 would be the best choice. Driveclub, PSN, the 2.0 update, etc. are all examples of this. Not hating, just saying.

      • Babooon

        I own a ps4 And it works fine , no lag in user interface , drive club has no problems , update 2.0 is beast and ps servers are solid

        • trumanfilipo

          Next Generation consoles as a whole have been fail,I’ve since switched to PC.

          • Van embden

            Lol me too man its these next Gen consoles that pushed me to PC

          • TheShadowReaper

            its the worst console gen to have ever been graced to gamers, no one can blame you.

          • TehShadewRaeper

            That’s right, down with Console Peasants. They can’t even get oral sex from their console. PC are amazing because we have better graphics.

      • Will

        What you say is true every one knows psn is a sub par service.

    • TehShadewRaeper

      Just get a pc you peasant, U may not get full support like on console but at least u have better graphics. Remember gameplay doesn’t mean shit as long as u have better graphics.

      • Will

        You PC master race people are the biggest losers on the internet.

        • TehShadewRaeper

          I know right

      • TheShadowReaper

        i’m actually stunned by the stupidity and how much you misinterpret my points. but oh well, maybe when you get out of puberty we can talk again. until then, farewell.

        • TehShadewRaeper

          I get u ur points are the…..PC are the greatest because of one reason…….. GRAPHICS

          • TheShadowReaper

            nope, but i wont elaborate on that since you already have formed an opinion and think you are right. you are a waste of time.

      • JuicyJuice

        lol I love it when you brag about PC being “master race”, yet no one cares, its the same game

      • Jt

        Haha I like your satire

      • WTEO

        I would rather game my N64 than game on a PC.

  • Waze

    How long did the download take for you guys? It has been 15 minutes for me and it’s only at 5% and I really want to be able to play at midnight. (I’m on Xbox One)

    • Matt Shotwell

      Took me 11 hours

      • Waze

        Wow, mine has been at 22% for a while now so I think it has frozen. This may be because I turned the Xbox off and then back on. The last thing I want to do right now is restart the download…

        • Tadd Vick

          Mine has been stuck at 22% for 5 hours. Did yours ever move on??

  • Brad

    20 minutes 3% I’m suing Microsoft

    • Waze

      Lol but remember it is 40 GB so it makes sense…

      • Brad

        Shouldn’t have to reinstall at all. I got this a week ago so I can fucking play when it releases not to reinstall it later.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      What’s your mbps?

      • Brad

        47.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Holy shit, everyone must be downloading it, lol.

          • Brad

            I downloaded this 2 fucking weeks ago, great fucking job to the faggots at Microsoft.

          • haha imwhite

            same here- soooo fuking pissed if this isint ready, at 12% now

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    I did it after the patch thankfully. Either way, it only took about an hour and a half.

    • Reptile

      Do you know when the patch was exactly?

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Idk I just bought the digital pro for AW and it gave me the patch to download as well. They downloaded at the same time.

        • Kenny

          What did your xbox say in the download about the update?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            PS4. Idk, it just automatically downloaded at the same time as AW.

    • Kenny

      When was the patch?

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Idk, I downloaded it today.

    • Kenny

      This Shibe better reply

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        anything4u

        • Kenny

    • K.E.M

  • Dark Guy

    I just got a patch update on PS4 but no problems with my pre-load…. (still waiting for the damn countdown >_<)

  • Dan Iron

    This had better not be a fucking troll fucking with everyone i uninstalled it before fucking thinking.

  • legion813

    I added up the amount of space AW took up plus the amount for the dlc. Seems I was missing the 256mb patch. Way to shit the bed on this one Xbox…

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    1 hour hype ;_;

  • bob

    What percent does it need to be to play?

    • Daniel Sims

  • Is anybody else seeing there character customisations wrong in multiplayer and purple kneepads??

  • Devin Wolfe

    What time the patch go out?

  • Pfft, You console peasants

    PC master race

  • TehShadewRaeper

    Yes I don’t have to worry I am a PC elitist that isn’t a console peasant. Time to go jerk off to my pc now that costs over 700 hundred dollars, it does the same thing as consoles but only better graphics…..

    • K.E.M

      Errh, you guys are left in the shadow by the Dev’s

    • Will

      Wow 300$ more I hope its a little better. You must be a lower class PC elitist though.

  • IMAGUEST

    Will I be able to buy the day zero edition tomorrow anybody know ?

  • Run N Gunning Camper

    If this happens to me then it’s gonna set me back 35 minutes unless the servers are clogged.

    Update: i just got home and was met with this 30 minutes content installation. XD

    • Danny Martin

      I assume they are. I have a 50 mb connection, but my download is bouncing between 2-5 mb, This is of course after I already downloaded everything once before.

      • tony

        exact same situation for me

      • Run N Gunning Camper

        i have 150 mbps download and the game loaded fine. it’s just that it needs to download some “content” after I selected MP. it’s still downloading and the timer initially says 30 minutes. I have no idea what it’s downloading.

    • MichiganerE

      Where have you been?

      • Run N Gunning Camper

        I’ve been playing Destiny and racked up 182 hours on it since launch. I love that game.

        • MichiganerE

          Okay then.

  • Juses

  • Siftblade of Rivia

  • Bdotson1984

    Whew, I’m good. Just unlocked and updating

    • alex

        • alex

          It’s said 100% clicked on it, then started updating. It’s 70% done with the update

          • Bdotson1984

            How do you see that… I clicked on it, it takes me to the store. And it says installing 100% there

          • alex

            Mine said 100% installed then said play. I clicked it. It took me to the game and started updating. I’m not sure what’s going on with yours man

          • Bdotson1984

            I think I know what’s going on… I recently added a 3tb external drive. I added in the settings to make it the default drive.. I pre downloaded it to my internal drive so I think it’s moving everything to that

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Me as well. Installing MP apparently.

      • Bdotson1984

        Are you getting updating 1oo%?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          No. I’m in the actual game. I click MP and it says “Notice: Installing Content. Please wait.” With a golden bar at the bottom. 21 minutes left apparently.

          • MichiganerE

            Let me know how the multiplayer is when you can play it. I don’t want to deal with another Ghosts.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            KK. Will update you in half an hour after my first match and give my first impressions.

          • MichiganerE

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol rekt. Pls sony, save me

          • Siftblade of Rivia

          • Chad Reed

            I downloaded for a whole day then I start the game and click on multiplayer and it says “downloading content” and shows 8 hours remaining. It only lets me play single player for now, do I really have to wait 8 more hours to play multiplayer FUCK!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I know, it blows that they did that. Should’ve included it with the pre-download imo :/

  • darwinquez

    ii started downloading at 10pm today is this really gonna take me 10 more hours?

      I downloaded for a whole day then I start the game and click on multiplayer and it says “downloading content” 8 hours remaining. It only lets me play single player for now WTF!

        • Juses

          Made a new account to write that comment? Or are you that other guy? Anyway it’s 7gb. Btw it only took me 50 mins. Not 6 hours 🙁

  • darwinquez

    is download speed slower if your playing a game at the same time or is it all the same (xbox1)

    • Confirminator

      The download speed is extremely slow (for me at least), with or without a game running.

  • wtflolsmh

    I got the retail copy and when I loaded up the game it asked to update before installing and I accidently hit yes and the game stays at “queue” wtf it doesnt install so make sure people are saying no to the update before installation!

  • Stray

    This is amazing they pulled some unbelievable bullshit on this one took me forever to download it before I was hoping to play when it came out especially since I’m movin today just fucking great…

  • Potat0chip

    Can someone help me you see my brother from Australia bought aw an installed it on my ps3 but I deleted his account thinking that it will still let me play the game because I have the american digital version and now when I go play it says copyright protection invalid how can I fix this without having to download it again

  • Charles Holman

    So I got on tonight and it said “Updating 100%” which it has done that before when I pre downloaded it and so I sat for awhile trying for figure it out and I literally tried everything to start the game, hard rebooted my xbox twice and also went to the xbox marketplace to see if I can play from there but it still came up as updating 100%. Mine didnt show 0% or 99%, I played with it for 30 minutes and I looked online before doing this but I just deleted it and reinstalled the game, I did pre-install the game two-three weeks ago, so it might have been that patch, so much for day zero, right?

  • Harry

    What % can you start playing it on xbox one?

    • Juses

      Don’t know. Ask it on reddit.

      • Harry

        I would if i knew how to use reddit 🙁

          ask on the advanced warfare forums then.

  • Tep Kok

    How can you fuck that up so badly? It’s a fucking 46GB game for christs sake

  • Kyoshilonehearted

    I had this game pre-loaded on Xbox One weeks ago, the same day it became available for pre-load. Now, it has been stuck at ‘updating 100%’ for nearly an hour. I have no idea what it is doing. This is such f*cking bullsh*t.

    • Reptile

      This same thing happened to me, I think the entire game is being redownloaded.

      • Kyoshilonehearted

        It took me 8 fucking hours to download it before and that was WEEKS AGO. I cannot fucking believe this. All of this goddamn hype and they ruin it. It is probably going to take much longer now that there is probably a shit-ton of activity.

        I still cannot fucking believe they messed it up this badly.

    • Bdotson1984

      My did the same. And then proceeded to download the entire game, which took me three days. I went to walmart and bought a disc… Installing from the disk and hopefully get $50 for it on eBay. Waste $10, and not the three vacation days I took

  • tony

    so ive been downloading now for almost an hour and at 27% it said i could play but once i entered multiplayer it would only let me play local not online then once returning to the dashboard it said 25% not 27 and then i did it again at 26% and it reset it again to 25%. im beyond heated with how terrible a console microsoft put out. its been terrible since day 1 of me buying it.

    • Tadd Vick

      Mine was at 36% and I did local play for an hour, came back and it is 25%. What??

      • Anthony

        Mine was at 10% then i paused it and went back to 7%

  • guest

    This is complete bs..this is what I get for getting the digital version..and of course its re-downloading as slow as it possibly can..and I’m getting 120mb/s down..I’m at 8% and its been an hour..seriously WTFFF!!!!!!

    • Juses

      That’s because a ton of people is downloading AW

  • RussoHD

    Never Buying Digital on Xbox again. Suck a nut Microsoft

    • Bdotson1984

      Me neither.. Mine is installing the whole game… Went to walmart and bought the disc for much faster installation. Selling disc on ebay for the first $50

    • MeMyself&I

      Just remember, It’s not coming from Microsofts servers, It’s all on Activision Boys and girls.

  • Wayde Alessandro Graves

    yeah, this is BULLSHIT i am reinstalling the ENTIRE DAMN GAME! Fuckin assfucks

  • Drew

    So I downloaded it after the patch I believe however now Ive got this error when I click on Xbox live: “Error setting persistant data: Given int value is too large to fit in a byte; see console”

  • milkysoul

    I got cod aw day zero on disc, installed, an it keeps going back and forth to queue and install. What gives??? My gamertag is Milkysoul, and if you get it to work get back to me. Much thx

  • don

    To all you assfucks who bought the physical copy (digital users I LOL AT YOU) GO OFFLINE AND INSTALL THE GAME. its faster and it won’t fuck up due to the update

    • Kyoshilonehearted

      No, you should be LOLing at Sledgehammer Games, they are the ones that fucked up.

  • no to digital

    How does the hard copy work? I put it in, downloas rhe patch and I can play multiplayer? If so I’l delighted 🙂

  • Anonymous

    im at 25% and it won’t let me play multiplayer but it will let me play local why is this?

    • KuuGeeL

      me too but im at 87% 🙁

  • UnhappyCustomer

    What a calamity from SHG and Microsoft. Hope it’s not a sign of things to come. I bought physical thankfully but even now; the servers are taking an absolute pounding because of this and all the kids trying to DL before skool. As usual; multi-million dollar game and cheap crappy cloud servers running the show. Typical bloody COD yet again.

  • C’mon Man

    I hope we have a class action suit. I think it is time for us to get what we pay for. If you promise it, you need to deliver it. It was a bit too optimistic to have downloaded it in advance and actually believe it was going to work.

  • Juses

    Why do you only get 50 points per kill in Dom and 150 points per capture? -_-

    • J4MES

      I think it’s always been like that in COD DOM. It’s just an incentive to play the objective as opposed to killwhoring.

      • Juses

        It wasn’t always like that. It was 100 points for a kill and 200 point’s for a capture. It takes forever to get streaks now.

  • Juses

    Why can’t you see the player count on aw?

  • ApoX

    Question: If I buy and download this game today, will I be able to play right away or wait till tomorrow?

    • Rodoe528

      If it’s at best buy

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Tomorrow, probably. Download takes a while.

      • Slothigans

        You guys do realize if you’re playing on Xbox one you can start playing immediately once it hits 25 percent right?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Same with PS4, supposedly. You obviously can’t play MP with only 25%, it downloads campaign first. Then once you fully download the game and open it, there’s a 2 hour install to unlock MP.

          • Slothigans

            No, lol. I was able to play multiplayer just like that once it hit 25. Idk about you guys but mine worked that way. I’m not kidding either I’m just saying that’s how it worked for me.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            You’re saying you played full MP with others without actually downloading the full MP? Kay

          • Slothigans

            Yes. I did. What you think I’m lying? I’m not. What would that benefit to me at all? Nothing. All I’m saying is that’s the way it started on my console.

  • Juses

    Seriously, why can’t you see how many people are online on AW?

    • Run N Gunning Camper

      Because the numbers are low and they don’t want you to see it. The USA pre-order numbers are not even a million.

      http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/41931/USA/

      Compare that number to Ghosts last year and you’ll know why they removed the counter.

      http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/41581/USA/

      Even Destiny has way more pre-orders than AW.

      http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/41889/USA/

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        No, that’s not why. if that was the case, explain why they left the player counter on COD Ghosts and didn’t remove it?

        • Puppet Master

          Because people still pre-ordered ghost & were still in love with CoD.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            What? Throughout Ghosts entire lifycyle, people were mocking Ghosts because BO2 had more players on.

        • Run N Gunning Camper

          Because they don’t want to. Just look at the numbers. There is no denying that AW has the lowest pre-orders. You can’t spin it.

          Do you have any theory why it’s not in the game?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            No, but yours makes no sense.

          • Run N Gunning Camper

            It does makes sense. if people sees the low numbers then they will start crying lag. People knows that the smaller the player base is, the farther we are from other players which equates to higher ping. By omitting the player count, the player base have no idea how many are playing AW and there will be less complaints about lag.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s a stretch…

          • Run N Gunning Camper

            Not at all. It’s the reality.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            People say Ghosts had very little lag, yet not many played it

          • Run N Gunning Camper

            There is lag. In Ghosts, ever experienced getting one shotted on your screen yet he unload half a mag? Yup. That’s latency/lag.

  • Guywithbrains

    First impression: 100000000 times better than Ghosts, maps are colorful, weapons are good and exo movement is fun and easy to get used to. My first match TDM stats 13-9. Then I tried Infected and it is fun to try to kill that last survivor.

    • First impressions: Oh wait, I didn’t get the game. When I came home the mailbox was empty… I cri evritiem.

    • Puppet Master

      You’re just a fucking sheep who needs to follow the heard. Ghost is 100000001 times better then this trash.

      • Guywithbrains

        That’s nice from you. Somebody has a bad day.

      • Bilbo

        LOL

  • Mikey9835

    So what’s everyone’s first impressions of the game? I played some of the campaign and a few MP matches and I’m blown away, there are a few graphical and frame rate issues on the old consoles but nothing game breaking. I’m really surprised how fantastic this game is,. The exo movements are surprisingly easy to pull off and you feel like a total badass when you exo slam an opponent for the first time. Now stop reading this and buy it, it is 10x as good as black ops 2. The time to kill is better then Ghosts and in case anyone was wondering there are bots in offline modes as well.

    • Puppet Master

      3rd worst CoD made.

  • TheWeedGuy

    I love to have 100/20 internet. Downloaded the full game from steam in 1 hour and 30 minutes.

  • ScOott

    First game I played and I can safely say .. Me and cod have fallen in love again 😀 had a nice big break thank to ghosts but now everything is right with the world

    • Guywithbrains

      I can easily say that I found new favorite Call of Duty. 😀

      • ScOott

        Me too … The only reason I’m not on it right now … My mother has decided to come visit me! Why! Of all the days of all the months in the year is it today ? I’ve managed to have the one game and set up my custom classes … So excited to get back on it!

        • Guywithbrains

          Indeed.

          Here are pros and cons:

          + F*cking fun
          + Maps are great
          + Dem graphics
          + Campaign is really promising
          + Just perfect TTK, I didn’t see any “meltdowns”
          + No lag

          – Killstreaks hard to get
          – Co-op mode not so original but still fine

          My take: Buy it if you have thought it!

          • Puppet Master

            No lag my fucking ass. I will dump 3-4 rds into a dudes chest just for me to die.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I’ve had no lag yet. Probably will in the future, but so far, none.

          • Tricky VIk

            “No lag either.”

          • Guywithbrains

            Stop playing with your 2mb student internet in your mountain cabin and get real one.

          • Slothigans

            Kill streaks being hard to get is a good thing. That way it’s actually a challenge. Which means no spamming of any killstreak which levels out the play field.

          • Juses

            -kill streaks suck

    • juicestice89

      it’s 109$ for the game, season pass and extras it took me about 10 to 12 hrs to download. Including restart. When I restarted it restarted the whole dl and only went a bit faster than previously
      This was a few weeks ago

    btw, what is everyone’s thoughts on AW so far? i actually think its the COD we always wanted.

    • Guywithbrains

      I have already said it but my new favorite Call of Duty.

      AW > MW3 > Ghosts…

      • Juses

        That’s your list of favorite cods? K

        • Guywithbrains

          I know I am special in this way. But that’s how it goes. 😀

      • TheShadowReaper

        give me a couple of hours more into AW and for me it will become this: AW > BO > COD4 > BO2 > WaW > COD2 > MW3 > MW2 > COD1 > Ghosts

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      It’s like BO2 without the BS.

      • TheShadowReaper

        agreed

  • cesc-2007

    The easy way around this is get off your ass go to the shop and buy the disc. #4The Players

  • drjakeyoung

    So in my opinion, the game is a lot better than ghosts, BO2 and MW3. The maps are colorful and the exos are really fun. However, i have noticed a couple of bullshit things so far.

    The first is that quick scoping is really annoying. I will try and shot someone with a lazer weapon or something, and they full on quickscope me. Also, the weapon balancing is really uneven. It seams like everyone uses assault riffles, smgs and snipers, and although the health has been put up, i keep getting bullshit killed by people. No problem with lag so far so that is good, although it does take it’s time loading between changing modes like black ops 2 did. Currently, i am 1 level off the IMR, and that weapon looks so good. So will be going back on to try and get that.

    • skeetshootin

      This game sucks ass, I dont understand how someone likes this better than bo2, mw3, or ghosts…

  • KevJumbaify .

    I’m loving the kp5

  • skeetshootin

    Dont worry about downloading it, have my pro edition/ game sucks ass….

  • Pickles

    Played MP for 5 hours so far and the only thing I’m kind of hating is how long killstreaks take to get and how TDM games end so fast in AW.

    Off topic: NA45 Sniper Rifle is one of the most weirdest weapon I’ve seen

    • I’m definetily spending the token on either Hardline or IMR (need to try this gun out).

      Bal is being very inconsistent to me

  • kia0525

  • SandwichUSfatkids

  • ScOott

  • Tony

    This is some bullshit!!! Someone predicted this shit would happen!! They said theres no point of being happy about the double Xp because its gonna take all day and night to install this game!! So much for wasting gas by getting a number at gamestop and coming back midnight. Should of jus waited till today!!

    • Guywithbrains

      I was more lucky. I went to pick up the game, put disc in to my PS4 and in 5 minutes I was in MP. I am already level 16 (started about 7 hours ago). 😉

      EDIT: Not whole 7 hours went to MP.

  • LovekillerX

    So first impressions… this game rocks! I knew that this won’t be a disappointment! 🙂 Campaign this far have been so amazing and multiplayer has been really nice and fun. Especially I have enjoyed from Infected which is my favourite mode. For me TTK isn’t too high or too low and sniping in this game requires skill – if enemies know how to dodge and jump everywhere so you won’t die. It is different thing if enemies just stand in there, then things get really fun. 😀

    So what’s up with other’s opinions? I have read some but I would like to hear more. 🙂

  • mm

    i have been trying to download digital version for hours now and only at 26 %–what should i do

    • Slothigans

      It all depends on your internet connection.

  • Favorite Ape

    Not your internet connection, their internet connection and server speed.
    The “it must be your internet” excuse has already started.

    Sledgehammer if you’re reading this. I’d like to let you know that the game is good but… You’re so dumb because you didn’t put a player count. Wtf its in every cod. Are you embarrassed by the numbers online? YOU COULD HAVE ALTEAST SHOWN HOW MANY PEOPLE PER GAME MODE. PLZ PUT IT IN AN PATCH. OR THIS GAME HAS FAILED.

  • Pickles

    Anyone with the game and unlocking Sniper camos can help me? Google is giving me nothing. Well apparently I’m trying to unlock the ‘Kryptek Neptune’ camo which requires 50 Double Kills with the specified Sniper Rifle. Is it asking for 50 COLLATERALS? cause I’m sitting at 0/50…

  • Chris M

    WTF… This is ridiculous I’m on my third time re downloading this game 3 hrs in and I’m at 36 % and like Aaron A said it should have been pre loaded into the advance warfare bundle .but no ooo that’s to easy of a task for them to accomplish . Common we pay the damn money to play a game we expect to play once we get , no bulls hit excuses . So frushtraded at this point

  • jddugsthf

    This error keeps popping up whenever we log in or add a second player for split screen. Either that or saying there isn’t a server or it freezes a bunch.
