Problems with Call of Duty

The Call of Duty video game franchise is so big that millions will be impacted all at once when servers go down, or when multiplayer isn’t working for some reason. The first game in this first-person-shooter franchise released over a decade ago, although one of the latest games is called Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and now Black Ops 3. These titles will run into problems with both server maintenance and not working due to glitches within the game.


If there’s game related problems then they often need an update to fix bugs, but server-side problems within Call of Duty need hot fixes without gamers having to download a patch. Either way, when there’s problems with Call of Duty you will see status updates below.

Those of you seeing error messages within Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3, or other versions of this game should leave details below to keep the community informed. This also helps with fixes to any freezing, crashing, or other issues you have on PC, or the latest PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

    We updated black ops 3 for our Xbox one and now we can’t get online to play. Our game is stuck in LAN and local games. Been like this since last night. Tried restarting machine and game many times still nothing

  • Jeff

    CoD is down in Missouri, I believe it is to do with the new Infinite Warfare beta download, servers are getting smashed.

  • Linda

    I have nothing in California, servers are down and no Call of Duty.

  • Brian

    Call of duty is down, I am on the Xbox One. Is anyone having issues on their PlayStation? This is not a banter its just to see if its the devs server or not.

  • Steffan

    Ive put the code in for call of duty on my ps4 but it just keeps saying cannot find or been used.i only opened it this morning and was sealed up until then.

  • Tina

    Xbox One and PC owners will be blessed with the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC today and this is why servers are down for maintenance. This is the 4th and last for BO3 seeing as the new game will be coming next month.

  • Ricardo

    What time is the new Call of Duty Black Ops 3 DLC being released today? Only asking because the servers have been down a while now.

  • Mark

    Constantly kicked from bo3 servers as of today.. can’t even finish a single game! Now tried Advanced warfare and can’t even connect to the servers!!!!!???????

  • Nick Baker

    Bloody severs are a bloody joke sort it out. Any body else got these problems

  • Nick Baker

    Call of duty on PS3 down can’t get online game been down for 3 days I’m from the UK. It’s a joke going knot going knot bloody joke

  • Beercules

    Had friends over to play and suddenly the servers are down. They could show their patrons a little respect and give a heads up or at least give some kind of idea how long the game will be down and what is going on. Wtf?! Worst customer service ever.

  • Texan Red

    I’m having the same damn problem. It is so frustrating because it is my favorite of all cods and I don’t know what’s wrong

  • Freddie

    call of duty black ops 3 zombies is not working for me, it will not let me play friends on my list but will other people.

  • Malcom

    Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is releasing November 4th 2016, lets hope the servers can be a little better than they are now. A new game, loads of newbies online its going to be sour i can tell you.

  • 啊事实上

    My mods aren’t working

  • Dax York

    I keep getting kicked outta lobbys because of host migration i have not been in a good lobby in hours

  • Rory O’Flaherty

    When I play Black Ops the game is constantly lagging. I’m not computer minded, but is this because the host is usually the US? Is this where all the servers are and why the connection is so terrible? It seems ridiculous that I have fast internet but cant play an old videogame online without having everything puppet around in slow motion.

  • Madeline

    I got nothing in the East Midlands, Call of Duty should be NO duty.

  • Keith

    No online play with Call of Duty Black Ops 3 for just under a week now in San Diego.

  • Mauricea

    I cannot find any lobbys in BO3 multiplayer online. Please anyone help me.

  • Mitchell Lal

    Connected after I performed an internet connection test…. game on….

  • Mitchell Lal

    Just received a cod3 PS4 messaged to update……. updated….. logged on and error code alphabet appeared. Got the option of local, or retry so I attempted the retry and got to checking files 99% completion then bogs out with the error code again. Maybe nothing but when I keep pressing retry more letter of the alphabet appear on the next error code message.

  • steve

  • Ghenghis1

    COD Advanced Warfare will not connect to the servers – been like it all day. Call of Duty Black Ops.exe has stopped working and no apparent fix for it so money paid for a game I can’t now play…!!!

  • Christopher

    I think call of duty on the XB1 is more stable than on the PS4 as i have played both at my house and my friends. Looks like I am saying goodbye to the Sony brand.

  • Austin

    I got no PSN in London, whats going on because every time I try to play black ops 3 i cannot.

  • Ferdi

    Playing Call of Duty Black Ops on the Xbox One and it keeps saying the server is down.

  • Troy

    I just downloaded the Atlas Gorge map and there are no lobbies showing.

    They reason this is happening is because AW is dead nobody plays. There are only TDM lobbys. This is the reason you cant find hardcore tdm.
