Warzone players and code SPAN error

Warzone error code 47, also called SPAN, is preventing console players from launching the game. Luckily, there’s a simple way to fix error code 47 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Every now and again, Warzone Pacific players have had run-ins with error messages that suddenly pop up and prevent them from enjoying the game, such as error code 48, and Status Savannah error.

One particularly frustrating issue faced by the Warzone community is error code 47 or ‘SPAN.’ This error was present at the launch of Warzone Pacific and continues to plague players during Season 2.

Luckily, there are known ways to get around error code 47, so here’s everything you need to do to get back to playing Warzone.

How to fix Warzone error code 47 or SPAN on Xbox and PlayStation

1. Start your console in safe mode

Warzone error code 47 completely stops console players from launching the game. However, players have reported that starting their console in safe mode allows them to rebuild the missing or corrupted files that cause the issue.

Unfortunately, this can only be done safely on PlayStation consoles. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Turn off your PlayStation
  2. Hold the power button until there’s a beeping noise
  3. Select the Rebuild Database option once it boots up in safe mode
  4. Let the scan complete

2. Clear console cached data

If you’re an Xbox player or rebuilding the database didn’t work on PlayStation, you should try to clear the cached data on your console. This won’t delete your profile or progress, just the temporary files and data that can become corrupted.

Here’s how to do it:

PlayStation 4 & 5

  1. Fully power down PlayStation (don’t enter rest mode)
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of your PlayStation
  3. Wait at least two minutes
  4. Plug the power cord back in
  5. Turn your PlayStation back in

Xbox consoles

  1. Turn off your Xbox console
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of your Xbox
  3. Wait at least two minutes
  4. Plug the power cord back in
  5. Turn your Xbox console back on

Xbox Series X

  1. Press the Xbox button in the middle of your controller
  2. Scroll to the right to Profile & System
  3. Head to Settings
  4. Select Devices & Connections
  5. Select Blu-Ray
  6. Select Persistent Storage
  7. Select Clear Persistent Storage

3. Check for system updates

If these previous solutions haven’t worked, then it’s possible that you’re encountering this error because your console is in need of a system update. So, you’ll need to check if any are available for you to download.

Here’s how to do it:

PlayStation

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select System Software Update to check for available updates
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to download the update
  4. Wait for it to finish downloading then reset your console

Xbox

  1. Press the Home button to open the Dashboard menu.
  2. Select Settings and then All Settings.
  3. Select System and then go to the Updates tab
  4. Choose Update Console 
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to download the update
  6. Wait for it to finish downloading then reset your console

4. Reinstall Warzone

Completely uninstalling and reinstalling Warzone is a last-ditch effort, but might be the only way to get around the frustrating error code 47.

Although this may take several hours depending on your internet connection, it will remove any corrupted files and install the game with everything as it should be. Hopefully one of these solutions will help you circumvent the frustrating error code 47.

Four classic Modern Warfare 2 maps to return in Warzone 2, claims leaks

Reputable industry insider Tom Henderson claims that Warzone 2’s brand-new map will bring classic Modern Warfare 2 maps as POIs.

Published

Warzone 2 is on the way and while nothing official has been revealed, a ton of new information has come from leakers and insiders. Industry insider Tom Henderson claims we can expect to see POIs built around four fan-favorite Modern Warfare 2 maps in Warzone 2.

Warzone’s sequel was confirmed to be in development alongside Modern Warfare 2 back in February 2022, but the developers haven’t said anything else since. Instead, leakers have been revealing new details about both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.

Soon after YouTuber NerosCinema dropped a ton of new leaks, insider Tom Henderson claims we can see at least four classic Modern Warfare 2 maps in POIs around Warzone 2’s Blackout-like map. While these are just leaks for now and nothing is confirmed, here’s every MW2 map Tom Henderson claims will arrive in Warzone 2’s map.

High Rise

High Rise was first revealed to return by YouTuber NerosCinema, whose source claims to have played Warzone 2. This leak was then corroborated in Tom Henderson’s eXputer report, where it’s “located at the top right of the map under the POI name ‘Modern City.'”

While Modern City isn’t the POI’s final name, Henderson said that Warzone 2’s map “contains a large city with a lot of skyscrapers and tall buildings.” TheGhostOfHope previously claimed that the map is inspired by Medellín, which is the second-largest city in Colombia.

Quarry

Quarry is set to be its own POI at the top left of the map, according to Tom Henderson. Quarry is a classic Modern Warfare 2 map blending long sightlines for sniping with confined spaces for close-quarters combat.

As Quarry is only a medium-sized map, this should be one of the areas that have been “added and expanded upon.”

Terminal

Warzone players were desperate for the fan-favorite Terminal map to be added to Verdansk’s airport, and Henderson claims it’ll finally arrive with Warzone 2’s Airport POI.

He said that it’s “located at the bottom right of the map,” and will be “one of three locations on the map with a large stronghold.”

Afghan

Afghan, which features a crashed aircraft in the middle of a canyon in Afghanistan, is set be “towards the middle of the map, but slightly to the left” inside the ‘Caves’ POI.

The caves are a major chokepoint in Afghan, so you can expect a ton of close-quarters fights at this POI.


Also, according to Henderson, there should also be even more classic Modern Warfare 2 maps arriving in Warzone 2, with Henderson theorizing that the ‘Mountain Town’ POI could feature Favela. He said there are “several more locations” that hint toward more maps, but he couldn’t confirm ahead of publishing.

Henderson also claimed that this will be the same map as Modern Warfare 2’s upcoming Escape from Tarkov-inspired DMZ mode.

Best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Season 3

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and here’s the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Published

on

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and with the right attachments, Perks, and equipment you can make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Warzone features a plethora of powerful SMGs that are ideal weapons for close-range combat, and while the Armaguerra 43 was nerfed shortly after its arrival in Season 2 Reloaded, it still remains a viable pick.

This weapon is a great choice because of its impressively fast fire rate and low recoil. If you want to make it perform even better then you’ll need to equip the right attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Here’s how you can make the best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Botti 570mm Precisione
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Stock: Botti DA
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 72 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by equipping the M1929 Silencer muzzle, Botti 570mm Precisione barrel, and M1930 Strife Angled underbarrel to boost the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control while providing sound suppression.

The Stippled Grip will further improve the SMG’s accuracy and you can take advantage of this by equipping the M38/Slate 2.5x Custom optic to pick off enemies during medium-range engagements.

We picked the 8mm Kurz 72 Round Mags along with the Lengenthed ammo to ensure you have plenty of rounds to eliminate multiple enemies. The Hardscope perk will boost your accuracy after aiming down sights and Quick lets you sprint faster.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 Perks & equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

You’ll need some protection from enemies throwing grenades and thermite during close-quarters combat, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

In the second slot, you’ll need Overkill so that you can pair the SMG with a Sniper Rifle like the ZRG 20mm for long-range combat. Amped will allow you to quickly switch between the two if an enemy team gets the drop on you.

This SMG forces you up close and personal with opponents, so a well-placed Throwing Knife is the perfect way to quickly remove an enemy from the equation, and a Stim will grant you a quick health boost.

How to unlock Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

The Armaguerra is unlocked via an in-game challenge, so all you have to do is score 10 hip-fire kills in 15 separate matches to add it to your arsenal.

If you own a copy of Vanguard, this should be a breeze in multiplayer matches, especially on small maps like the Shipment or Das Haus.

However, if you’re someone who only plays Warzone, it might be worth dropping in to Clash or Plunder to rack up some easy kills.

Best alternatives to the Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

Warzone is brimming with great SMGs, if you’re looking for an alternative to the Armaguerra 43 then the Owen Gun and Welgun are extremely viable picks for close-range combat encounters.

The MP40 is another great SMG that you can use to cause some mayhem in Warzone, thanks to its impressive damage and reliability at a variety of ranges.

Warzone players discover hilarious way to gain XP fast thanks to King Kong’s nuts

Operation Monarch has provided Warzone players with several ways to gain XP, and the latest involving Kong takes big cojones — literally.

Published

If you’re ready to get up close and personal with King Kong, you could snag yourself a ton of free Warzone XP quickly. Be warned though, this hilarious new method involves some monstrous family jewels.

We’ve already revealed that Warzone’s Operation Monarch LTM can be used to level up weapons quickly. However, a new trick discovered by Warzone players seems to provide loads of additional XP despite the questionable method involved.

Operation Monarch and its challenges are set to disappear on May 25, and if you’re brave enough, you’ll only have a few days to test out the method below.

While Operation Monarch received mixed reviews from the Warzone community, it hasn’t failed to provide laughs and downright wacky moments. Most streamers and top players did not care for the LTM, but most players seem to really enjoy interacting with Kong and Godzilla.

The latest example of this interaction appeared on the Warzone subreddit where a player shows off the reward for showing King Kong some admiration.

The player flies a chopper towards Kong’s giant cojones. This area is also known to be quite dangerous, as most of the time Kong will efficiently dispatch players who get too close.

If you’re lucky enough to sneak through his defenses and reach his blind spot, then you could be rewarded for your trouble. As the player describes in the post, it seems you can earn loads of XP that continue to pile on by “tickling Kong’s sack.”

While there’s no way of knowing if this will occur 100% of the time, or if it is the result of some strange glitch, it’s hard to deny that this is one of the most hilarious methods for gaining XP in Warzone we’ve ever seen.
