Derandomize your calling card and emblem

While we don’t know the exact cause of this error, one solution that has been successful in the past is to change your Warzone calling card and emblem. The problem is normally caused by them both being set as “Randomized.”

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Log into the game
  2. Head to the Barracks tab
  3. Check if your emblem is set to “Randomized,” then change it to “All Together Now” or any other category
  4. If your calling card is also set to “Randomized” then change that too

Once that’s done, head back to the multiplayer lobby, and you’ll be able to join the game without seeing the error message.

Verify the Warzone and Modern Warfare game files

  2. Click on the Warzone icon
  3. Select the the gear icon and click “Scan and repair”

  2. Wait a few seconds
  3. Press and hold the power button until the PlayStation turns back on

Modern Warfare players call for anti-cheat changes to counter DDoS attacks

Modern Warfare players are urging the developers to improve anti-cheat measures in order to counter DDoS attacks.

Modern Warfare 2019 players are frustrated with hackers ruining matches with DDoS attacks and are urging the developers to improve the game’s anti-cheat measures.

Despite being two years old and CoD: Vanguard releasing during that time, Modern Warfare continues to remain extremely popular with a strong player base. However, the game has its fair share of issues.

One major problem that plagues Call of Duty titles is cheaters. Modern Warfare players are frustrated with hackers ruining matches and are calling for the developers to improve their anti-cheat measures.

Reddit user ‘AngryWack’ claimed that they’re quitting Modern Warfare 2019 because of the game’s cheater problem. They encountered multiple hackers who proceeded to ruin different matches.

Two hackers aim-botted the player and another one hit the server with a DDoS attack just for fun. This led to the Redditor becoming fed up with the state of the game and another commenter shared this sentiment:

“Wait for MW2 and uninstall MW 2019 if you don’t want to play it anymore. Trust me, I did the same and I am VERY happy that I did because this game took my sanity, patience, and good times.”

DDoS attacks can make a game impossible to enjoy, so it’s completely understandable why Modern Warfare 2019 players are calling for the developers to counter this with improved anti-cheat measures.

Players are so frustrated with the hacker problem in Modern Warfare that some of the commenters suggested trying out other Call of Duty titles like Black Ops Cold War as an alternative.

The issue of cheaters and hackers is something that the CoD devs take seriously. Warzone’s RICOCHET anti-cheat system was implemented in response to this problem, and it has helped improve the game.

How to fix Warzone “friends list not showing” glitch

We have a couple of easy and effective methods to fix Warzone’s glitch that makes it so that your friends list doesn’t show anyone online.

Warzone Pacific friends list not showing glitch

Warzone and Modern Warfare’s long-standing “friends list not showing” glitch that prevents players from showing up on your friends list is still a constant menace after the Pacific update. Here are some solutions to hopefully fix this glitch for you in both Call of Duty games.

It’s undoubtedly frustrating when the only thing you want to do is play a game online, and certain factors are preventing you from doing so. Aside from obvious internet connectivity worries, there is also Warzone’s infamous “Checking for update” bug and Xbox players not even being able to launch the game.

Another issue that continues to haunt players in Warzone Pacific is a glitched friends list that doesn’t allow you to see anyone else online even though they are, and leaves you unable to invite them. As always, we have some ways that might be able to aid you and resolve the problem.

How to make your friends list visible in Warzone and Modern Warfare

You’ll know if the problem is affecting you because when you select Warzone’s social tab and try to inspect your friends, you’ll be hit with “friends list not showing.”

Just to double-check that your friends are indeed online, just quickly open up your general friends list for the console or platform you’re playing on first to check. If they are showing as online, then use our methods to hopefully make them show online on Call of Duty too.

Here are the most efficient ways to get around the glitch.

#1 – Restart Warzone or Modern Warfare

The classic “have you tried turning it off and on again?” Not only is it a way to fix a computer, but it could also cure your temperamental version of Warzone Pacific.

Here’s how you can try this out:

  1. Simply close Warzone or Modern Warfare
  2. Restart your respective platform
  3. Boot up Warzone or Modern Warfare
  4. Check to see if it now appears

#2 – Link Warzone with Discord

Many players have reported great success by using the official Discord service to link up with their friends and enter games together.

To do link up with Discord:

  1. All players must have their Discord activity status set to ‘On’
  2. Make sure you have connected your ‘Battle.net‘ account to Discord
  3. Have everyone launch Warzone or Modern Warfare
  4. Then all players should join from the same Discord

Plus, Discord is expected to arrive on PlayStation this year, so it will be even easier to link up with friends cross-platform.

#3 – Create a Group

Another possible workaround is for one person to create a Group, customize it, and invite everyone to join.

This is how to create a Group in Warzone:

  1. Go to the ‘Social’ tab
  2. Head to the ‘Groups’ tab
  3. Press to ‘Create a Group’
  4. Create a ‘Group Name’ and ‘Group Tag’
  5. Wait to see if it’s approved
  6. With a successful Group, invite friends via the Group option

#4 – Turn off Crossplay

We’ve already covered extensively how you can turn off crossplay in Warzone and why you should consider doing it. On top of this, it’s also been doing the trick for some people with Warzone and Modern Warfare game invites.

To do this, simply:

  1. Make your way into Warzone’s or Modern Warfare’s ‘Options’ setting
  2. Select your Account
  3. Switch the ‘Crossplay’ function from enabled to disabled
  4. Restart the game
  5. See if it’s worked and whether it has or hasn’t, turn Crossplay back on, and see if the result changes with it

#5 – Simply wait

The easiest and most straightforward idea to try, leave it and hope it fixes itself. Believe it or not, waiting 30-60 seconds could actually fix it and could save you a lot of time than the above fixes.

It won’t work for everyone, but it’s another solution to try and help with this persisting, long-term problem in Warzone and 2019’s Modern Warfare.

Do CoD Points carry over across games?

The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.

Players who still have CoD Points in their account from Black Ops Cold War don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when turning to Vanguard.

What can I buy with COD Points?

Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.

Battle Pass

Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:

Bundles

Attack on Titan bundle CoD

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.
