Share post:

Call of Duty rolled out patch version 1.50(CE-34878-0 update) on December 15th and it has screwed up Modern Warfare completely. Devs have broken Modern Warfare 2019 with the December 15, 2021 patch. The game freezes on all consoles and PC. Modern Warfare crashing out after every update is a common complaint leaving players frustrated. The December patch doesn’t allow players to play their normal Modern Warfare game without having to worry about getting a black screen, crashing, or blue screen. It is hindering the enjoyment of playing.

The last and latest version included fixes for bugs and increasing damage range for a couple of weapons. But even after over 3 weeks of release, players are complaining of Raven devs rendering the game unplayable. The general perception is that any update leaves the MW game busted, making it worse. The common complaint is the devs no longer care to add value to the once upon time beautiful game.

How to fix Modern Warfare crashing out issue after December patch?

The anguish can well be understood when players have to delete multiple games to load the ever-increasing 16 GB update and the game cannot be played. There has been no response from the devs so far in spite of players raising the issue everywhere. Out of frustration, players have deleted the installed game and reinstalled it a number of times on their consoles, but the game did not work.

Please check out a few tried and tested ways gamers have tried out till an official fix is rolled out by Raven. If you are not comfortable with any, it is suggested to stop playing the game until an official fix arrives.

A solution that worked for some was to uninstall the MW game, delete the game directory and reinstall.

Another one is as below with steps. However, keep in mind that it is not good for console plugging out of the wall. But when you push the button, the PS4 uses a built in function to cut its own power, reducing the risk of damage.

How to fix Modern Warfare crashing on PC? As suggested by a Reddit user, he logged in to PC as admin. He disabled Anti-Virus software, opened the, scanned and repaired the game in the launcher. Reboot the PC now.

One Reddit user found that some of the DLC packs are corrupted and they cause unexpected bugs. His suggestion was to play with the sole uncorrupted packs for just multiplayer. This is for the multiplayer version only. Check out his solution below.

Many players haven’t uninstalled the game yet, hopeful the developers will fix the game, nevertheless, we all had a good time playing this game for almost 2 years. However, it is advisable to report the Modern Warfare crashing issue on the official link so as to add “weight” to it: Report Form Modern Warfare.

It is illegal the way Activision neglects Modern Warfare to be riddled with bugs. Gamers have paid $60+ for a game that devs roll half baked updates. Modern Warfare gamers feel that it was ridiculous to have Warzone attached in the first place. The devs should have just made Warzone an independent game as they did with Apex and Titanfall. Instead, they added Warzone, Cold War and Vanguard just to make MW worse and make players buy the other titles. MW once was a great game but no more. Thank you, Activision for making all of us play other games as Halo Infinite and Battlefield!
