Here's how you might be able to fix the COD Update Glitch

The Season 2 Reloaded update added a lot of great things to Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War. However, it seems to have re-introduced a COD update glitch to people playing on Xbox One and PS4.

This means that every time someone opens the game, they are required to download the full 20GB+ patch and install it before they can play.

This isn't to say that people playing on next-gen consoles won't suffer from it, but so far reports are only coming in about PS4 and Xbox One players.

With this in mind, how can you even fix this glitch? The likely response from an official source would be to "update the game" but that's the problem.

Thankfully, notorious leaker ModernWarzone thinks they've found a fix.

How To Fix the COD Update Glitch

If you are suffering from this "updating loop", there might be a pretty easy fix. However, if you're pressed for hard drive space on your console... Look away now.

If you head to the "DLC Management" section of the settings menu, on Modern Warfare (or Warzone) and Black Ops Cold War you should see the option to uninstall various parts of the game you're not using.

For example, you can uninstall Dead Ops Arcade and the Black Ops Cold War campaign if you don't play them.


If you have some things uninstalled, this could be the reason why your COD game is stuck with this update glitch.

Apparently, installing both the Campaign Packs and Special Ops Packs for Modern Warfare should fix this. Similarly, if you're on Black Ops Cold War... Installing all the campaign and Zombies content should do the trick.

There's no word yet on an official fix for this issue, but we're sure Activision, Treyarch, and Raven Software are working on it.
