Call of Duty: Warzone has yet another friends list bug. Though there is lots of new content, it isn’t fun when you can’t play with your friends because of a bug. Here in this guide, we’ll help you fix this bug quickly until Activision eventually does. A while back, the company itself issued an official apology for the state of Call of Duty at the time. If you’re having issues with the friends list we have you covered, stick around and continue reading to find the fixes


How to Fix Friends List Bug in Warzone

Back to the friends list bug plaguing Warzone. What is happening currently is for those playing on console, the friends list appears blank and empty. One of the clearest workarounds for this problem is to use your console-specific friends list. While this won’t help with cross-play, it will give you access to your friends on the same console.

Other than that, you will want to make sure you restart your game. Sometimes, little patches can come in a matter of hours that fix bugs. You want to make sure you aren’t missing any update that could fix the problem.

If that doesn’t work, and while you are waiting, you might as well check your offline friends list. In the past, Warzone bugs have forced your active friends list into the offline category. If this is the case, you can still invite your friends even if they are appearing offline. Whether you are on console or PC, the fix to this problem is the same. However, if you are on PC, you can invite friends to your game via Discord.

Another fix to this problem is through using Regiments. If you have never used a Regiment before, it is basically like hosting a party, but you invite your friends via their Activision account. What you’ll need to do is go to the Regiments section in Warzone, start one, and invite your friends that way. If none of these quick fixes work for you, keep your eyes peeled for an update. Be sure to check in with us for updates on all things Warzone while you’re waiting. I’ve heard the top 5 SMGs in Warzone is not a bad read.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is out now for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series S/X, and PC via Battle.net. Additionally, Call of Duty: Warzone is free to play on the aforementioned platforms.
