Infinity Ward says they’re aware of concerns over Modern Warfare download size

Published

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone are some of the largest game files out any game to release yet. The studio continues to release massive updates on average between 10 to 30GB for each platform, causing many users to have limited space on their platforms after downloading each new update for the game.

In an interview with USGamer, Infinity Ward Production Director Paul Haile says the studio is ‘cognizant’ of the overall size of the game and ‘working’ to manage the overall footprint over the title.

But he did note in the interview that they do want to support these games with more free updates and that will cause the size to change as they bring out more features.

He also notes that they have made the DLC Pack management system – where users are downloading additional content packs for each mode – specifically to allow players to uninstall packs for modes they don’t want to play.

“Modern Warfare and Warzone are both massive experiences with tons of ways to play and new content being added regularly, and we are cognizant of the overall download size,” Haile writes over email. “As a team we are committed to updating the game with new free content of course, but have also taken steps for overall footprint management, including a DLC pack management screen for console users. This allows players to pick and choose which DLC packs they want to keep, and remove the others to recover more space.”

After this week’s update, Modern Warfare full package sits at around 185GB on PC and around 150GB on console total.

Infinity Ward is treating Modern Warfare and Warzone as two separate games to maintain with updates, fixes, and new content.

“[It’s] no small amount of work,” says Smith with a laugh, about maintaining Warzone alongside the rest of Modern Warfare. “Every time we layer on a new piece, we’re like, ‘Oh! There’s more things we have to maintain,'” adds Cecot.

Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare players have been unable to play thanks to the Diver or Error Code 6, but we’ve got some solutions to help you get back into Season 4 Verdansk.

The Warzone community appears to be reaching a boiling point in Season 4, with glitches and hackers ruining the experience for many. Some players haven’t even been able to launch the game with the Diver or Error 6 Code making an unfortunate return.

There are some solutions to the error, so we’ve detailed them below to help you get back to playing Verdansk, Rebirth Island, or Modern Warfare multiplayer.

How to fix Code Diver 6 Error in Warzone & Modern Warfare

If you’re hit by the Diver or Code 6 Error in Modern Warfare or Warzone Season 4, you’ll be met with a screen telling you “Download Failed.” This is the root of the problem but fortunately, allows us to provide several fixes that should work.

Check the Warzone servers

This error code can often be caused by an issue with Warzone’s servers. Check out our Warzone server-status guide, and if there’s a problem, it’s worth waiting for the issue to be resolved by Raven Software.

If there isn’t a server issue, check out the following solutions.

Restart your router

The first thing you should try is restarting your router, as this could trigger your console or PC to begin the failed download.

  1. First, completely close Warzone or Modern Warfare
  2. Unplug your router / modem, wait thirty seconds, and plug it back in
  3. Wait around five minutes for it to completely reboot
  4. Launch Warzone or Modern Warfare

Download the update through a hotspot / cellular data

If resetting your internet didn’t work, you can try downloading the update through cellular data. Players have reported that this works for some reason, so it’s worth a try. However, you could rack up high data charges so we only recommend trying this if you’re desperate.

Reinstall Warzone and Modern Warfare

Unfortunately, the last solution we recommend is completely reinstalling Warzone / Modern Warfare. This will give a fresh install of Warzone and should be completely free of the Diver or Code 6 Error.

Warzone and Modern Warfare has a huge file size, so redownloading the game will likely take some time. But hopefully, you’ll be able to play battle royale and multiplayer with no issues afterward.


We’re fast approaching Warzone Season 5, so you can check out the leaked artwork and its release date.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players call for White Phosphorus killstreak to be removed or buffed

Modern Warfare’s White Phosphorus is a deadly killstreak, so much so that it is even making players call for its removal due to the frustration it causes.

Some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players have been calling for the developers to remove or buff the White Phosphorus killstreak.

Call of Duty fans are still very much enjoying Modern Warfare in 2021, with the player base even being gifted with new updates and maps every so often.

As the player base is still strong, of course, fans are continuing to give feedback to the development team, with the recent calls for changes to the Ground War mode. However, now it seems players have an issue with the White Phosphorus killstreak.

Modern Warfare White Phosphorus

Reddit user joshua-esaw put up a post with the idea to: “Remove white phosphorus or improve the visibility for your teammates.”

White Phosphorous is a killstreak in Modern Warfare that places a huge area of white smoke across the map that damages the enemy team.

The killstreak is really powerful. However, it can be disorientating for the teammates and the user, especially as you can take damage from it.

The full post is pretty explicit, with the player clearly being frustrated about the issue. The player even states that it is the “worst killstreak” in the game, purely because its negatives outweigh the positives, seeing no reason to use it “except to just annoy people.”

Players in the comments also agree, with one stating that “the coughing is the most annoying part.”

Another user shared their negative experience with the killstreak as well, saying:

“I had a Ground War once where every few minutes someone would call it in. It’s more an inconvenience than anything else when it was enemy, and it just pissed me off when it was friendly. It felt more like a detriment than anything else when I couldn’t see more than a few meters in front of me. For nearly the whole bloody game…”

The killstreak has been in the game since launch, so we doubt it’ll be going anywhere soon. Unfortunately, players who love this game are just going to have to deal with it and hope no one else uses the killstreak.

How to fix Modern Warfare reticle menu not working

An annoying glitch with Modern Warfare’s menu system won’t let players change their weapon reticle. Thankfully, a clever workaround exists.

A frustrating glitch with Modern Warfare’s menu system is leaving players unable to change the reticles on their guns. Thankfully, we’ve got everything you need to work around the problem.

Having the right reticle on your weapons can be super important. Using sights like a Red Dot or Holographic can make it easier to target enemies, but the wrong reticle can make it an even bigger challenge than before.

Unfortunately, an annoying glitch with the Modern Warfare menu system is making it impossible to change them. When players select the option, it immediately launches them into the “Play” menu, and is affecting players on PC and PlayStation.

While this is incredibly frustrating, the good news is that there is a workaround for those struggling to change the reticle on their weapons.

Some players have managed to use the game’s Blueprint system to change their reticles, and while not ideal, does let players choose which one they want to use.

Affected players may want to try:

  1. Open Warzone, and go to the Weapon Gunsmiuth.
  2. Choose your optic, then select the reticle you want.
  3. Go back to the main Gunsmith screen, and create a new Weapon Modiciation.
  4. Once saved, go back to multiplayer and select the gun you modified.

While this is a lengthier process, it will allow you to make any changes to the reticle that you want.

The good news is that this issue has been added to Activision‘s “known issues” page, which means developers Infinity Ward are aware of it.

When the team will drop a fix for this problem remains unknown, but with around 2 million people playing the game daily, fans will be desperate to see this bug squashed in the near future. With major updates set to drop with Warzone Season 5, it’s possible the fix may come then.
