One of the simplest ways fans have been able to express their dedication to the franchise, or any game for that matter, is through special editions with bonus digital content. The Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition is the highest tier available for COD fans, and if you find this version not working, you’re bound to get frustrated.

The Vault Edition for Modern Warfare 2 has an insane amount of rewards, you don’t want to be denied them for any errors.

If you’re wanting to fix this issue quickly, consider the following methods:

  • Troubleshooting: make sure you’ve attempted restarting the game, console, or PC, and whether this issue replicates itself.
  • Uninstalling/reinstalling: Naturally, this can be a more drastic resolution but it never hurts to try.
  • If you activated the game early but changed your timezone to New Zealand, try switching back or checking now that the game has properly launched in your region, allowing proper access to that content.
