I have been trying to play Call of Duty Cold War that I purchased last night. After many hours of getting error “Negative 345 Blazing Gator” and all manner of troubleshooting I determined Activision’s servers do not want to play nice with my internet/modem, whatever.
I ended up getting a VPN (Bitdefender) and now whenever I enable my VPN it disconnects from battle.net, crashes the app and disconnects any games launched through battle.net. However, without the VPN on I continuously get the unable to connect error through Call of Duty.
I know there is nothing Blizzard can do about Call of Duty but I was wondering if there were any potential fixes for the VPN/Battle.net interaction as this seems wild that battle.net would not work with a VPN.
I have checked other gaming apps on my computer (Steam/Epic) and both work just fine with the VPN enabled, it is only Battle.net that does not work.
