A common crashing issue has been plaguing the MW2 Community since its launch on all platforms. This article will discuss why it occurs on PlayStation and XBOX and how to fix it.
After much anticipation and waiting, COD: MW2 is released as a full-fledged title on October 28, 2022. Following MW’s success, players are expecting greater things from this newly released title. As a result, Infinity Ward and Activision are trying their best to deliver players what they need.
No new game’s launch goes smoothly. Likewise, MW2 is also facing tons of errors, bugs, and other issues, causing players to not enjoy the game to the fullest. When millions of players try a new game immediately after launch, things like such are expected.
However, thousands of players have complained about a crashing issue that has been preventing players from enjoying MW2. For some people, it is happening while playing MW2 Campaign only, and for the rest, it is happening for both Campaign and multiplayer modes on different consoles such as PS4, PS5, XBOX One, and S|X.
Why is MW2 Crashing Issue Occurring on PS and XBOX?
Although Modern Warfare 2 is a AAA title game, it is currently facing many optimization issues. The crashing is not only apparent in PS4 and XBOX One, but also in latest generation Consoles such as PS5 and XBOX S|X.
Even after meeting recommended system requirements, PC players are facing constant crashing issues. According to players’ reports, partying up with your friends is causing MW2 to crash most of the time. The other reason this is occurring is attachment tuning with your custom weapon loadouts.
How To Fix MW2 Crashing Issues
The crashing issue is mainly occurring due to poor game optimization and bugs. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to fix MW2 crashing issues on consoles permanently. However, following some methods may prevent your game from crashing for the time being.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on fixing MW2 crashing issues on Console (PS4, PS5, XBOX One, S|X):
- Start MW2 and go to Graphics Settings.
- Set everything to Medium or Low.
- Go to the Weapons tab and remove attachment tunings from custom loadouts.
- Do not party with more than one player.
- Enjoy the game!
Following these steps should prevent your MW2 from crashing on your console. However, if you still face crashing issues after following all these steps, you should contact Activision support and wait for them to release a permanent fix for the crashing issue on PS4, PS5, XBOX One, and S|X.
