How to Fix the Stormcaller Not Spawning Bug in MW3 Zombies

Unfortunately, there’s no way to fix the Stormcaller Not Spawning Error while in the same deployment in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The only way to deal with the bug is to redeploy into Urzikstan and hope that this time the game will work as intended.

Does the Stormcaller Respawn Modern Warfare 3 Zombies?

Although the bug stopping the boss from properly spawning is frequent, the Stormcaller does not respawn, which means that it is possible that the boss is not showing up for you because another Operator team got to him first. To avoid that, make sure to head toward the Aether Storm as soon as possible. When hunting the Stormcaller boss, I recommend that you take with you at least three Gas Masks and make sure you have at least one teammate.

The Aether Storm will not spawn from the get-go, so keep an eye out for it. In the Tac-map, the storm will be showcased as a light-purple zone with a hazardous symbol at its center. The storm will progressively grow as time passes until it covers the whole map.

How Do You Beat Stormcaller in MW3?

The easiest method to defeat the Stormcaller I’ve found is locating the Blood Burner Motorcycle and hitting the boss with its Aether Pulse Field. This is such an effective way to beat the boss that you won’t even need a powerful weapon like the Ray Gun. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this tactic can take down the boss with one hit if done in the low-danger zone. We have a whole article about defeating the Stormcaller that I highly recommend if you’re having trouble dealing with him.
