The Warzone season 3 release has some pretty big bugs that are still not fixed


In anticipation of Operation Monarch, Call of Duty is urging digital artists to mock a poster that will be part of the official campaign.

You can try your hand at capturing the epic battle between King Kong and Godzilla and earn a hefty $ 2,000, which is approximately £ 1,594 / AU $ 2,810. There is a whole brief to follow, so be sure to check all the boxes if you want to attend.

You can find more details on the official website.

If you want the cute XP, Call of Duty has the Twitter account right confirmed that there is a maximum of 2XP from now until Monday 2 May. This applies to both Vanguard and Warzone.

A weekend of grinding awaits those of you who want to make some serious progress as soon as possible.

Vanguard season 3 patch notes have also dropped. Sledgehammer Games shared the details in a blog post.

Rated games leave the beta, but it ran into a bit of a hiccup immediately after the update went live. But it’s all right now.

Players’ Season 3 Skill Ratings have been reset, and Season 3’s Top 250 Skill Division and Ladder leaderboard are set to go live on May 4th. By that time, we’re a week into the new season, so you have plenty of time to earn a rating and move on through the divisions.

This is not the first time this bug has appeared in Warzone. An update from December 2021 similarly messed something up and required players to have an Xbox Live Gold membership to play. That was after the Xbox rolled out its policy around free-to-play games.

The official Call of Duty Twitter account have not responded to the complaints yet. And neither does Raven Software. The developers may still be struggling with the ‘damaged readout data’ error.

If you are not desperate enough to gamble that you want to sign up for Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass, you will need to find alternative ways to have fun until this is resolved.

If you thought the drama was over, think again! Another bug has manifested itself, which has resulted in Warzone no longer being free to play.

“I can not play Warzone on Xbox Series X without xbox gold / ultimate pass,” tweeted @ mactez5.

“It used to be free2play until today’s update. Please fix this bug. It says ‘the current profile is not allowed to play on xbox live'”.

Another Warzone player has also encountered this problem, tweeting“thanks for the update, now I can not play warzone unless I buy a membership, so much for a free game.”

@BagsPlays shared a screenshot of the bug, saying they’ve been playing Warzone for free for several months, citing the Xbox free-to-play policy. A few people responded to their tweet and said they had the same problem.

It does not appear that the developers have acknowledged this yet, but we will monitor their social conditions. Crossing fingers, it gets resolved as it will do them no favors to require a paid membership for a free-to-play title on Xbox.

A new issue has emerged and Raven Software is on the case! But you have to get stuck to get it fixed.

A few people on Twitter have flagged an issue that prevents them from playing Warzone. They are presented with an error about “damaged readout data” and are interrupted.

Raven says it’s investigating it and will provide an update “ASAP”, but there is no sign that it has a solution ready to be rolled out yet.

The tweet marking the problem is met with frustration from the community.

“Shouldn’t something like this be caught when you test your game? I just do not understand that games like this go through almost every update,” said @Jack_Moo_re.

“Maybe they should fix the game besides adding monsters …” added @TECH_KyleJ.

These are among the milder responses to the tweet, but it is certainly not met with any kind of patience.

If you get this bug, keep an eye on Raven Software’s Twitter account for more updates.

Treyarch has acknowledged the issues on Twitter and says they should be resolved. Some answers suggest that a few other little things are going on, but if you play ranked, you should be able to get in.

The study has asked anyone who still encounters this problem to tell them so. So go ahead and tweet to them if this still raises your head.

Rated games seem to be causing problems for some CoD: Warzone players. @DrDembie on Twitter said they have been having issues all day, which is not a big surprise given the need for server downtime. But other reports have surfaced since the update rolled out.

@esiDra_X posted the tweet above saying they had closed the game and restarted but had no luck. A few people responded and said they had the same problem. Another user complained of the same problem and their frustration is resounded further down the thread.

It was about half an hour after the update went live, so we are keeping an eye on the situation to see if it has been fixed or fixed.

You can read the Warzone patch notes yourself, but this update is great. There are a wealth of weapon changes, new Caldera locations that you can explore, as well as new operators.

If you are waiting for your download, you can pass the time by browsing what awaits you when you finally get into the action.

A couple of Warzone players complain about the update file size in season 3 on social media. The series is notorious for releasing hefty updates that will cause you to delete every game you own, just to make room for them. Here are the file sizes for each platform:

  • PS5
  • PS4
  • Xbox One X | S
  • Xbox One
  • PC
    • 38.3 GB (Warzone only)
    • 98.3 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)

“Just deleted [Modern Warfare] Fuck that shit, ” tweeted and fan. “I do not download [100GB] it’s a hell of a game. “

“Isn’t it fun anymore those sizes,” chimed in another.

PC gamers who want to update both Modern Warfare and Warzone are looking at a huge update or are leaving Modern Warfare for Warzone season 3.

Call of Duty: Warzone rises in the ranks of Twitch. It does not quite enjoy the sharp increase in viewers that the Overwatch 2 PvP beta had yesterday. It currently has 105,000 viewers behind DOTA 2, Valorant, FIFA 22 and of course the Overwatch 2 beta.
