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.
- Run Warzone on DirectX 11
- Update your graphics driver
- Install all Windows updates
- Stop overclocking
- Increase your virtual memory
Fix 1: Run Warzone on DirectX 11
According to some gamers, the error seems to have disappeared 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.

Fix 2: Update your graphics driver
The error message suggests that the error is, very likely, graphics-related. In other words, you might be a victim of a broken or outdated graphics driver. So before trying anything more complicated, definitely make sure you’re using the latest correct GPU driver.
You can update your graphics driver manually, by visiting the graphics card manufacturer’s website (NVIDIA/AMD), finding your model and downloading the latest correct driver installer. But if you don’t have the time or patience to update your video drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy.
- 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- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.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: 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 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.
