Call of Duty Warzone error codes have started popping up left, right, and centre as we're now a couple of weeks into the launch of the game. There was a major update released not long ago and as a result, things like the Call of Duty Warzone 6 error code and Call of Duty Warzone DIVER error code have been prominent, preventing people from being able to access Call of Duty Warzone at all. We've got some potential solutions for all the possible Call of Duty Warzone error codes right here, so make sure you exhaust these options before giving up on the game for good.

Call of Duty Warzone error codes 262146 and 263234

Both of the above Call of Duty Warzone error codes indicate there's a problem with the connection to the servers. There's a few solutions you can try to fix the problem:

  • Log out and back in
    It sounds obvious, but simply logging out then back in of your game can fix the problem. It's a classic solution, but should always be your first port of call.
  • Power cycle your machine
    Whether you're on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, give your system a proper restart. Don't just send it to sleep; turn it off completely, give it a moment, then boot it back up again. This can give it a hard reset and fix the issue.
  • Restart your router
    If neither of the above work, try restarting your router or modem. Switch it off completely then wait for 30 seconds before turning it back on again. When your machine is connected to the internet once more, see if you can get into Warzone.
  • Reset to factory settings
    This is a last resort, but you can reset your machine to factory settings. You'll lose all saved data that isn't stored in the cloud, along with your installed games, but it could fix the problem. Only go for this if you've exhausted every other option because there's no reversing it.

    On PS4, head over to the Settings menu, then Initialization, followed by Restore Default Settings. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    On Xbox One, go to System, then Settings, then System again, followed by Console Info. Now you can choose Reset Console, then Reset And Remove Everything.

    Playing on PC? Depending on your operating system and version the exact method for restoring factory settings will be different, so search Google for a guide on how to do it based on your device.

Call of Duty Warzone error codes 6 and DIVER

Another error code some players have been running into in both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone is the 6 or DIVER error code. There's no official word from Activision on how to fix this issue but after scouring some forum threads and discussions, there's a couple of user submitted solutions that people have reported that allegedly fix the situation.

  • Restart your router
    A common solution that should always be given a shot, Reddit user /u/traicel claims that this fixed the problem for them.
  • (PC Only) Turn off Windows Firewall
    Do this at your own discretion (and remember to turn it back on when you're done playing Call of Duty), but Reddit user BloodPrince_COD has said that turning off Windows Firewall will fix the issue on PC. A number of people in the replies have said that this solution works, which lends credence to the solution.
  • Download the update via cellular data
    This error code often occurs when there's been a brand new update to download and install. There's been a few people who claim downloading it on their usual WiFi network caused the issue and that if you have the data allowance, downloading the updating and launching the game on cellular data is the way forward. Of course, switch back to your usual network when you're in the game, but try downloading the update via a cell phone hotspot to see if that fixes it.
  • Delete and reinstall the game
    Something a number of players have said is a potential fix is to delete the entire game and reinstall it. Of course, this isn't an ideal solution because the full game is 170GB+, but if all else fails, give it a shot.

We'll continue to list more Call of Duty Warzone error codes as they become available so if your error code isn't on the list above, hang tight. There will undoubtedly be some server downtime later down the line though, so make sure you check our guide about is Call of Duty Warzone down? Keep your eyes peeled and good luck jumping back into Verdansk!
