Rejoice, a fix is coming for COD’s crippling Warzone and MW3 reset bug

Fret not, a fix is on the way for the game-breaking bug currently crippling the Call of Duty Warzone and MW3 servers on PS5 and Xbox.

Call of Duty MW3 and its Warzone battle royale mode are among the most played games on PS5 and Xbox each day. As you might expect then, a new issue that has all but disabled the Call of Duty servers is causing quite the storm – especially as player progression is involved. Thankfully, an urgent fix is in the way for the nightmarish Warzone and MW3 reset bug.

Beginning on February 23, Call of Duty Warzone and MW3 players are reporting widespread server issues that have been crippling two of the best FPS games. Since the issues began, many players have been completely unable to log in and play, while those that can have seen frequent disconnects. Perhaps most frustrating of all, however, is that player progression is currently failing to track, meaning account, weapon, and battle pass levels – as well as event progress – are unresponsive on PS5 and Xbox.

Thankfully, the developers are aware of the issue and are working on a fix to the issues preventing progress from being tracked across both of its multiplayer games. Though your progress will be restored once a patch is released, the devs warn that “players may also notice unusual behavior related to account level and loadouts” in the meantime. If you notice your best MW3 loadouts and best Warzone loadouts playing up, then that’s why.

Nevertheless, because of the server issues tracking progression, some players have even had their account rank and Ranked competitive level reset. In fact, some players have reportedly been met with Warzone playing the introductory tutorial video as if they’re a new recruit.

If you are able to access the game, we recommend you stay far away from Ranked given these progression issues have had a knock-on effect on the skill-based matchmaking system and players’ SR.

The good news is that Activision and its Call of Duty developers are typically very fast in resolving any progress-related issues. However, while this isn’t the first time we’ve faced progression and server bugs, this is perhaps the most widespread case.

While we wait for these game-breaking bugs to be fixed, there’s no better time to dive into some great new PS5 games and new Xbox games. Given how thick and fast content is added in CoD, it’s not always easy to find the time otherwise. If you just can’t get enough though, read up on how new Call of Duty games will come to Xbox Game Pass after all thanks to official confirmation from Phil Spencer.
