Are you wondering how to fix the disconnected code Goldflake error in Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2? The dreaded Goldflake error has plagued Operators for multiple Call of Duty franchise entries. We’re not surprised that Operators are still continuing to run into the Goldflake error when attempting to play to this day.

Since the game is free-to-play, we suspect that the servers cannot handle the large population of Operators trying to play all at once when things get busy. While the Goldflake error won’t ever go away forever, it does tend to go fix itself once the server load has been lightened. Here is everything you need to know about fixing the disconnected code Goldflake error in Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2.

How to Fix Disconnected Code Goldflake Error in Warzone 2.0

The Goldflake error code in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 shows up when the game’s servers are experiencing heavy load. You’ll have to wait a few minutes before the game will let you log in and play. Unfortunately, there is no proper fix for the Goldflake error since it’s a server-side issue, and you’ll likely see it a few times before you can get into the game. However, there is a workaround for all platforms so you can get back into the game.

When you encounter this error, close the game entirely and restart your device. Not only will this give the game’s servers some time to clear up, but it will also fix any network issues that you may potentially have on your end. If you run into the Goldflake error again, you need to repeat the process until it goes away. For example, we’ve had to reboot our devices three times before the error went away and we could get back into the game.

Xbox PSA: Do Not Do This!

Some guides state that you must purchase a one-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Core to fix this error, but this is NOT true. Activision and Microsoft have confirmed that you do not need an Xbox Live subscription to play Warzone 2.0, and players still report the Goldflake error after buying a subscription. Please do not get caught in this trap.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
