Warzone Copying add-on issues in Call of Duty
After releasing the major Call of Duty Season 2 Reloaded patch, Activision also left some players in a frustrating Warzone copy add-on loop.
From what has been shared online, fans of COD can’t play or do anything but constantly try to download Modern Warfare and its Battle Royale spin-off.
The file size is about 28 GB and usually includes a 30 minute wait for anyone wanting to play their games again.
The problem is on PS4, and while the community shares a few fixes, there doesn’t seem to be a sure way to avoid this problem.
Some gamers think it is related to the Modern Warfare disc, while others think it has something to do with the Campaign Packs that can be installed.
A user writes: “Go to your game and check that all data packages have been downloaded; the latest update removed most of it for me; once i reinstalled them this stopped happening.
Another adds, “This only started happening after I removed and reinstalled all data packages. But that will be my next step, reinstall them all to see if that stops it. “
“I had a problem with the copy add-on and I cleaned the disc really well, which solved the problem for me.
“This happened to my son three days in a row. It was loading it from the modern war disk so I digitally removed and installed war zone and it seems to be working fine.
“That’s something to note, probably a malfunction with the updated game files and the disc then. But I still play MP so that’s not an option for me / some players. “
For now, there doesn’t seem to be one solution that works for everyone, preventing some from playing Warzone or Modern Warfare.
Last year, Activision made it possible to download and remove various data packages to help reduce the size of Modern Warfare.
Below is the list of how to find these options on PS4 and PS5 consoles:
1. Start Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
- 2. When you reach the main menu, select Options.
- 3. Navigate to the General tab.
- 4. Scroll down and select Game Installations.
5. Highlight all the content you want to delete.
- Data Pack 1 – Required to access Campaign, Multiplayer and Spec Ops
- Campaign Pack 1 (Xbox One only) – Required to play Campaign
- Campaign Pack 2 (Xbox One only) – Required to play Campaign
- Multiplayer Pack (Xbox One only) – Required to play multiplayer
- Multiplayer Pack 2 – Required to play Multiplayer
- Special Ops Pack – Required to play Special Ops
- Special Ops Pack 2 – Required to play Special Ops
- Survival Pack – Required to play Special Ops Survival
6. Select Delete and then Confirm.
COPY ADD ON SOLUTIONS
Here is a fan solution shared online that is worth checking out for those still affected, but it should be noted that it is up to Activision to create a proper solution to this latest problem:
“You have to wait the first time it happens, but once you’re in the game go to the MW panel, select” Campaign “and it will ask you to download several packs before you can access one of these functions.
Download “Campaign Pack 1” and “Campaign Pack 2” and restart the game, they should be very small files – about 1MB each (approx.).
“During the last update, the game automatically decided to remove several packages you previously downloaded to save space. The packages they removed caused this problem. I would also recommend downloading some of the texture packs in that selection … After getting back in-game for the first time without downloading these packs, the map looked really funky.
“It removed about 150 GB of these packages, despite having more than 3 TB free on my hard drive.
ADDED: “Add the special ops pack at the bottom. It only costs one megabyte and makes the add-on popup unnecessary when starting the game, although it is a quick copy, but annoying. “
