Warzone Season 2 keeps crashing/freezing – What’s the problem?

Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the most played battle royale games in the world. The game offers truly exciting gameplay, but players are left embittered when faced with some glitches. One of the most annoying issues in Warzone is when the game freezes/freezes every time you do something.

In Season 1, there was an issue where the game would freeze and crash when swiping to a buy station. This bug is still present in Warfare Season 2, but the game now also crashes with floor loot. This makes it quite difficult to stay alive at first.

Warzone Season 2 crashing and freezing issue is most reported on Xbox. On Xbox, Warzone players are experiencing several crashing issues. According to reports, the game crashes or freezes during several actions such as loading the game, playing new modes or the game just crashes randomly.

Why does CoD: Warzone keep crashing on Xbox?

Although the Warzone Season 2 crashing issue can occur on any device including your PC or PlayStation, the problem is very common on Xbox. Xbox gamers have recently flooded the internet demanding a solution to the problem.

Some Xbox gamers also claimed that when they purchased the Xbox Live Gold subscription, the issue stopped appearing. However, membership is not required to play CoD: Warzone as it is a free-to-play title.

Raven Software, the developer of Warzone publicly acknowledged the issue on Twitter. They said they are currently investigating the matter. This also means that they might also deploy a patch to fix the problem quickly.

There is no specific reason why the issue is happening particularly on Xbox as the issue is on the developer side. Every time a major update is rolled out, these issues become more common.

How to fix Warzone Season 2 keeps crashing, freezing on Xbox?

Xbox players are the most affected by the Warzone Season 2 crashing/freezing issue. However, there is currently no effective or efficient solution for everyone. You can only try general resolutions to fix the problem.

We have also noticed that some people report that deleting the game and installing it again, or deleting and restoring the game files fixes the problem. However, that’s not true and we won’t recommend it to anyone with a slower internet connection.

Some Xbox users whose game crashed when they pressed the Xbox Home button twice or once suggest that the game stopped crashing when they stopped pressing said button.

Activision and Raven Studio will soon announce a fix for this annoying error. We can only wait for them to fix the problem. And, when they do, update your game promptly. Otherwise, you can try the settings that have worked for other users.

General fixes that worked for some Warzone players

Here is a list of solutions you can try if Warzone keeps crashing on your PC or Xbox One. These solutions are unverified and only recommended by players in the Warzone community.

1. Remove Warzone Placeholder

  • Go to the manage games/downloads section.

2. Uncheck Allow HDR10 setting

  • Go to Settings and navigate to General
  • Go to TV and Display options.
  • Next, navigate to Video Modes under Advanced.
  • Here, uncheck Allow HDR10.

3. Remove Random Vehicle Customization

You can try removing random vehicle customization from paint, music, and horn. After that, put one paint or none at all, and check if the problem is solved.

4. Disable Texture Flow

Another solution is to disable the Texture Stream from the lobby. After that, perform a hard reset of your console. When it turns on, make sure Texture Flow is still off. Now check if the problem is gone.
