Warzone 2.0: How to Fix “A player that your platform denies” Error

“A player that your platform denies” error has been plaguing the Warzone 2.0 community since its release. So, in this article, we’ll discuss why this error occurs and how you can fix it.

Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 are two of the most-awaited titles of 2022. Modern Warfare 2 has been a massive success for Activision and Infinity ward. Additionally, this MW sequel is the fastest-selling title in the CoD franchise history.

After watching MW2’s success, players are hoping for great things from Warzone 2.0. Like its prequel, Warzone 2.0 is also a free-to-play Battle Royale game. Additionally, Activision added a new game mode: DMZ, a new map, and new vehicles to spice things up.

However, like the MW2, Warzone 2.0’s launch hasn’t been smooth. Currently, Warzone 2.0 is facing many bugs, glitches, and stability issues, preventing players from enjoying the game to the fullest. When millions of players try a new game immediately after launch, things like such are expected.

Recently, many players have complained about a specific error called “A player that your platform denies”, preventing them from playing both Warzone 2.0 and DMZ. Whenever players want to queue with their friends, this error message pops up and ruins the overall experience.

What is the “A player that your platform denies” Error?

This error isn’t new to players who tried the newly released Modern Warfare 2. The “A player that your platform denies permission to play with you has joined the game.

Unfortunately, there is no permanent solution to fix this problem as of now. As the issue mainly lies within the crossplay system, unless Infinity Ward releases a fix for this issue, you may encounter “A player that your platform denies” every now and then.

Nonetheless, the Warzone community and experts have found some workarounds that can significantly reduce or prevent this error from popping up while playing Warzone 2.0 and DMZ.

Here’s a complete step-by-step guide:

  • Ignore the prompt:
    • When the “Would you like to exit the lobby?” error message pops up, you’re given two options: Yes or No to select. You can just press No, and keep playing the game. However, it may not always be the best solution if the error message keeps popping up. So, you may go for the following step.
  • Disable crossplay:
    • As the issue is mainly related to the crossplay settings, disabling the crossplay will give you a higher chance to play the game without this error any further. To disable crossplay, head to Settings > Account & Network > Crossplay and disable it.
    • Enable it again if you have friends on other platforms who are attempting to join.
  • Let different player host the lobby:
    • Try swapping hosts with your friend. It may eliminate the issue.
  • Have all players restart the game:
    • Sometimes having each player restart the game can fix lobby issues like this.
  • Check for Server Status.
