Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the full game, is finally here! If you are having trouble connecting, you’ve come to the right place. Here is how to fix connection issues in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

How to Fix Connection Issues for Modern Warfare 2

After checking the global release times for Modern Warfare 2, the first thing you want to do is look to see if the Modern Warfare 2 servers are down. Verifying the Activision server’s status will help you eliminate some of the possible problems keeping you from connecting to the game.

With that out of the way, the first connection issues fix you need to try is closing Modern Warfare 2 and relaunching it. On whatever platform you are using, close the game and relaunch it. This will help refresh any updates your game needs to run smoothly.

If you are still experiencing issues, try restarting your platform. Whether you are on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox, simply restart your console and launch Modern Warfare 2 again. A clean reboot generally helps with connection errors.

After you’ve tried these fixes, next, you’ll want to look at your wifi. Double-check that it is on and connected to your console. Without a solid connection, you won’t be able to play any Modern Warfare 2 games.

If none of these general fixes help with your connection issues, simply wait an hour and try again. Activision is hard at work to make sure that Modern Warfare 2 runs as smoothly as possible, so just give it time.
