If you happen to be one of them, don’t worry. Here we gathered several working fixes for your error, try them and get back to your game in a jiff.
Try these fixes
You might not need to try them all. Simply work your way down until you find the one that does the trick.
- Install all Windows updates
- Update your graphics driver
- Run Warzone on DirectX 11
- Stop overclocking
- Increase your virtual memory
Fix 1: Install all Windows updates
Windows 10 offers regular updates that can improve compatibility and security. Keeping your system up to date helps ward off lots of issues. It might even be the potential fix for your fatal error in Warzone.
And here’s a quick guide:
- On your keyboard, press Win+I (the Windows logo key and the i key) at the same time to open the Windows Settings app. Click Update & Security.
- Click Check for updates. It will take some time for Windows to download and install available updates.
After installing all system updates, restart your computer and test the gameplay in Warzone.
If this method doesn’t give you luck, simply continue to the next one below.
Fix 2: Update your graphics driver
According to the error message, it’s highly likely that the error is graphics-related. So before you dive into anything more advanced, trying updating your graphics driver as it could very well save your day.
It’s usually a tried and true solution. GPU manufacturers update drivers on a regular basis, targeting compatibility and performance issues. If you don’t remember when was the last time you updated your graphics driver, definitely do it now.
There’re mainly 2 ways you can update your graphics driver: manually or automatically.
Option 1: Update your graphics driver manually
To manually update your graphics driver, first you need to know the model of your graphics card, and who the manufacturer is. Next you can visit the manufacturer’s website:
And search for your exact GPU model. Be sure to download the latest correct driver that’s compatible with your operating system. Once done, open the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.
Option 2: Update your graphics driver automatically (Recommended)
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your video drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for your exact graphics card, and your Windows version, and it will download and install them correctly:
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
(This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. If you don’t want to pay for the Pro version, you can still download and install all the drivers you need with the free version; you just have to download them one at a time, and manually install them, the normal Windows way.)
Once you’ve updated your graphics driver, restart your PC and see if Warzone crashes again.
If updating your graphics driver doesn’t solve your problem, you can take a look at the next fix below.
Fix 3: Run Warzone on DirectX 11
According to some gamers, the error seems to disappear when they run Warzone on DirectX 11. So you can try the same and see if this trick works for you too.
- Open your Battle.net client.
- From the left menu, select Call of Duty: MW. Click Options and select Game Settings.
- From the left menu, select Game Settings. Check the box next to Additional command line arguments. In the input area, type -d3d11 (mind the dash). Then click Done.
Now you can launch Warzone and test the stability.
If this fix doesn’t help, you can try the next one below.
Fix 4: Stop overclocking
While it’s common belief that overclocking serves as a zero-cost performance booster, things might turn out otherwise. It actually, in some AAA titles, undermines the stability and leads to constant crashes.
According to some gamers, high clock speed might be one of the causes of this error. So if you’re using overclocking utilities such as MSI Afterburner, Intel Xtu (Extreme Tuning Utilities), try turning them off before you enter the game. And if your RAM clock speed is over 3000 MHz, try dialing it down a bit and see if it helps.
If the error code reoccurs when you aren’t overclocking, you can check out the next solution.
Fix 5: Increase your virtual memory
Virtual memory serves as additional RAM when your system is out of memory. This is often useful when you’re running a big and resource-hungry application. Increasing your computer’s virtual memory can at some point mitigate the crash.
- On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type advanced system settings. Click View advanced system settings.
- Under the Performance section, click Settings….
- In the pop-up window, navigate to the Advanced tab. Under the Virtual memory section, click Change….
- Uncheck the box next to Automatically manage paging file size for all drives. Then select Customize size.
- Enter Initial size and Maximum size according to the physical memory of your computer. Microsoft recommends that virtual memory should be 1.5 to 3 times the size of physical memory. In my case, the physical memory (actual RAM) of my computer is 8 GB, so the Initial size for me here is 8 x 1024 x 1.5 = 12288 MB, and the Maximum size should be 8 x 1024 x 3 = 24576 MB. Once you’ve entered your size of virtual memory, click Set, then click OK to save the changes.
- Restart your computer.
Now launch Warzone and check if the problem persists.
