Warzone and Modern Warfare players are facing an irritating glitch in the form of an error message which reads “Store is Currently Unavailable,” and here’s how you can fix this.

Now that Warzone Season 5 is here, Call of Duty fans have a variety of cool new content to try out. However, if you’ve attempted to access the in-game Store, you might have encountered a troublesome error message.

Several Warzone and Modern Warfare players have reported seeing a message that says “Store is Currently Unavailable.” This can be particularly frustrating, but there are few ways to get around it.

Various Warzone and Modern Warfare players have tried starting the games up and going into multiplayer, only to come across a message that says “install suspended or missing data pack.”

When attempting to start the installation process for the missing packs, the system informs them that “the Store is Currently Unavailable.” While there’s no guaranteed fix, you can try a few workarounds.’

Download Modern Warfare and Warzone from the in-game Store

One solution that has worked well is to head into the in-game Store and hitting download on the game’s page again. This may not work right away but has shown success upon repetition.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Enter the in-game store
  2. Search for Warzone and Modern Warfare
  3. Once you get to the game page, select ‘Download’
  4. Keep spamming this until the error fixes itself

You can also head over to General Settings and keep selecting game installs until it gives you the option to download the missing data pack.

Check your Internet connection/Restart your device

If that solution didn’t do the trick, then the problem might be with your device’s connection. Check to see if it’s working properly, and reset the Internet device to see if that fixes the problem.

You can also reset your gaming platform, and that may get it connected to your WiFi again.

To hard restart Xbox consoles:

  1. Hold down the power button until the Xbox completely shuts down
  2. Release the power button
  3. Disconnect the power cable
  4. Wait five minutes
  5. Plug the power cable back in
  6. Turn your Xbox back on

Completely restarting the PlayStation is easier:

  1. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds until the PlayStation completely shuts down
  2. Wait a few seconds
  3. Press and hold the power button until the PlayStation turns back on

Check your PlayStation Plus / Xbox Live subscription

One reason you might not be able to get the content you need from the in-game store is that you may need to get a live service subscription. This will grant you access to new online content.

Here’s how to get a PlayStation Plus subscription:

  1. Select the PlayStation Plus option
  2. Click Join PlayStation Plus from the function screen
  3. Enter your PlayStation Network Account details and purchase the subscription

The subscription service membership automatically renews at the end of the subscription period. If you’re an Xbox user then you’ll need to ensure that your Xbox live subscription is active.

Luckily, when you log into your Microsoft account on your console, you’re automatically connected to the Xbox service. Just ensure that you have a working Internet connection.

Check the Warzone servers status

This frustration often leads to players searching for the game’s current server status, and you’ll need to wait for them to come back up. Once they do, you’ll be able to access the Store again.

Hopefully, these solutions will resolve your issue, and you won’t be bothered by the “Store is Currently Unavailable” glitch again. With Warzone Season 5 in full swing, be sure to check out the best audio settings for it.

NICKMERCS explains why he believes Modern Warfare is overrated

Top Twitch streamer NICKMERCS has explained why he believes Call of Duty players think Modern Warfare 2019 is better than it is.

Even though Modern Warfare 2 is almost here, 2019’s Modern Warfare still has an incredibly active player base. However, top streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has explained why Modern Warfare 2019 might not be as good as you think.

Modern Warfare 2019 was the beginning of the Call of Duty franchise as we know it today — for better or worse, depending on who you ask. It brought doors to multiplayer, the Battle Pass, Gunsmith, Warzone, and the live-service seasonal content.

Modern Warfare 2 arrives October 28, bringing new weapons, Warzone 2, and an overhauled Gunsmith. But, top streamer NICKMERCS looked back on Modern Warfare 2019 and explained why he doesn’t believe it’s as good as you think.

“I mean this when I say this, they have not put out a good Call of Duty in years. It has been f***ing years,” claimed NICKMERCS, believing that Warzone has saved CoD. “It really did since Black Ops 3. Black Ops 3 was the last incredible Call of Duty.”

“Modern Warfare was not good. That MW game was f***ing cap… it was okay,” he continued, giving his theory on why players look back on Modern Warfare 2019 so fondly.

“You know what it was? It’s like when you eat a bad meal four or five times and then you have a good meal, so you think it’s great. It was the fact that it’s surrounded by terrible Call of Dutys.”

“You have like two or three back-to-back-to-back really bad Call of Dutys then MW,” elaborated Nick. “MW was like a decent Call of Duty, it wasn’t trash, right? Then after that, you had another two or three bad Call of Dutys.”

With Modern Warfare being the only Call of Duty game that wasn’t “trash” in recent years, Nick believes that it’s considered to be a lot better than it actually is.

He’s hopeful for Modern Warfare 2 though, saying that if the rumors of it bringing weapons and maps from the original MW2 are true, then they “can’t f**k it up.”

Modern Warfare players furious as new update makes graphics even worse

Issues with Modern Warfare’s graphics are leaving players furious as they look to enjoy the game ahead of MW2.

With Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, players have gone back to experience everything Modern Warfare has to offer, but graphics issues are resulting in a frustrating ordeal.

Both Cold War and Vanguard arrived after 2019’s Modern Warfare, yet players continue to enjoy the Infinity Ward-developed Call of Duty title. The game is beloved by fans of the franchise and many are flocking back to Modern Warfare ahead of Modern Warfare 2‘s October 28 release date.

Unfortunately, the quality of the game has taken a major dip with recent updates practically breaking Modern Warfare’s graphics. Not only are players furious with the storage demands of these recent updates, but they’re not pleased with the visual issues that have appeared.

In case you missed it, Modern Warfare 2 will be the Infinity Ward-developed direct sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. In an attempt to get a taste of what’s ahead, players have returned to Modern Warfare as the style of play and feel will be similar to Modern Warfare 2.

Previously, issues have been plaguing PlayStation 5 players as the game was rendered unplayable. Fans of the game called out the lack of dev support for the title. Although it’s only natural that the devs focus on delivering a polished Modern Warfare 2 experience, players are disappointed with the current state of Modern Warfare.

Players were shocked by the continued updates for the game that came with a massive download size. In addition, it seems the graphic issues that have appeared as a result of the updates are having a negative impact on players’ perception of MW2: “This just made me not want to purchase mw2.”

Some players questioned if the game was beyond repair at this point with comments like, “this looks like things just got deleted to me, unplayable,” and “another update that further destabilizes the matrix.”

While it is understandable that the devs prioritize the new title, one player suggests that these issues could lead to the poor perception of MW2: “I gotta say, this event is giving a more negative feedback response from the community.”

It’s unfortunate that CoD fans are unable to enjoy the game to build hype for MW2. With the devs focused on the new title, most players agreed that the state of Modern Warfare would not improve, but we’ll keep you posted if it does.

Modern Warfare players slam state of “unplayable” game on PS5

Modern Warfare players have hit out at the condition of the game on PS5, after visual issues have left the game “unplayable.”

Modern Warfare players have hit out at the current condition of the game on PS5, after visual issues and glitches have left the 2019 CoD title “unplayable.”

Despite being nearly three years old, 2019’s Modern Warfare has still retained a healthy player count. With Vanguard failing to make a big impact with the community, those looking for an alternative to Warzone have flocked back to Infinity Ward’s last release.

However, since Modern Warfare is no longer the main focus of the devs, who are gearing up for Modern Warfare 2 later in 2022, fans have been growing frustrated with the condition the game is in.

A number of bugs and glitches have cropped up, and the game appears to be completely broken on PlayStation 5.

Reddit user BchLasagna uploaded a clip on August 7 simply titled: “The state of Modern Warfare on PS5.” It showed the beginning of a Ground War match on Krovnik Farmland, but the map was unrecognizable due to severe visual issues.

Textures on many of the map’s key features had failed to load in, leaving the game looking like a mess. The ground had no grass or detail on it, while trees were replaced with floating blobs of green and brown.

The Redditor added that it “stayed like this the entire game,” ruining the match for everyone in the lobby.

Other players on PS5 have reported similar issues, while some claimed it was actually affecting gameplay. “It’s not even just a visual issue, you sink into the ground and can’t see anything. Makes it unplayable basically,” said Ram5673.

Meanwhile, many replies called out the devs for allowing Modern Warfare to reach this state, especially since the game worked fine when it was the current CoD release. “This game has been crapped all over by the devs. It comes very low on their priorities,” replied Zimifrein.

It’s no surprise that with Modern Warfare 2 set to drop very soon, Infinity Ward’s focus is mostly on the sequel. However, the players that still enjoy Modern Warfare regularly will be hoping to see the problems on PS5 solved sooner rather than later.
