A familiar error code in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone has returned today.
Players are reporting a surge of server issues this morning. Activision Support said the game is “experiencing connectivity issues” and that the situation is “under investigation,” according to Charlie Intel.
When Call of Duty players try to join an online game right now, they’ll get stuck on a “connecting to online services” and “fetching online profile” screen for a while. Eventually, they’ll be greeted by a message that says they’ve been disconnected from the servers and includes error code 8192. This is a common error code in Modern Warfare that also showed up last week.
Error code 8192 popped up on Aug. 11 following a minor update that implemented some balance changes and bug fixes. Although the reason for today’s server issues is unclear, it could also be related to an in-game patch.
Yesterday, Infinity Ward identified an issue with the underbarrel shotgun attachment on the FR 5.56 assault rifle. The developer said it was “working on a fix” last night but hasn’t provided an update on the bug yet. It’s unconfirmed if a potential fix for the shotgun bug has anything to do with today’s server issues, however.
This article will be updated when more information becomes available.
Update Aug. 18 12:05pm CT: Activision Support tweeted that “this issue is resolved.”
