Call of Duty *NEW patch 4/22/2021* - Won't launch

Could play the game without issues until this patch…

UPDATE!!! I GOT MY GAME WORKING on step (5) see below.
THIS MIGHT WORK from [zios007]


  1. I ran first a sfc /scannow

It found some issues and after a restart it found Windows Updates which I installed. However, the game was still not working.

  1. I uninstalled the Nvidia Drivers and tried with the windows 10 standard nvidia drivers. Did not work.
  2. Installed once again the Nvidia Drivers vs. 466.11
    Did not work.
  3. I´ve read in the Activition page to update Synaptic from Razer. So I opened it and updated it, there was an update.
  4. Also read for those with COMODO Antivirus, which I do not have, but I do have the Firewall to go to: Settings > Advanced Protection > Miscellaneous > Don’t detect shellcode injections in these applications. I’ve added the game folder “Call of Duty Modern Warfare”


Heres what i tried to do:

-Reinstalled Call of duty
-Scann to repair Call of duty
-Updated drivers
-Reinstalled drivers
-checked firewall / added allow to ensure

My pc:
Windows 10 Pro / 64 bit * latest updates *
Nvidia Graphics 8gb * latest drivers *

Nothing works! Anyone have a fix?
Update: 24 hours and still nothing!

Update Found in Event Viewer (is this the source of the problem?):

Let’s play when this gets back to life.


Hopefully they sort it out soon. Seems every big update comes with big issues.

I got the same problem. I can’t open the game. When I try to run the game it shows me an alert “Program Call of Duty Modern Warfare stopped working”
I have tried many solutions for example with deleting files less than 2mb, .idx files, removing Battlenet and also moving the game from my friends PC who has no problems. I avoided downloading the whole game today but it might by my last chance.

Man I have done exactly what you have done and I am having the same problem. Ive reinstalled both programs 4 times now and I cant get it to work. I had no issues what so ever with patches until this one. I hope we get a fix very soon.


Literally just bought the game an hour ago, cant play anything, just stuck at the connecting screen till I get an error. Just want to play the campaign at least but noooooooooo… cant do that without connecting. Where is the refund button? can’t find that either.


Same problem, same remedies tried. No luck whatsoever.

Running 3090, I9, 32Gigs, M2 driver…

support sucks.

+1 same problem, tried uninstalling BattleNet, deleting the Blizzard Cache, repairing game files, updating Nvidia drivers, nothing works. Cold War launches but not Warzone.


Same problem here. Just commenting to add traction. i5, GTX1650, 16GB RAM


Frustrating. Same here
