Warzone 2 players are reporting an error message asking them to buy Modern Warfare 2 in order to play battle royale matches. Here’s how to fix the ‘purchase Modern Warfare 2 to have access to everything’ bug in Warzone 2.
Warzone 2 is finally upon us, and millions of players have dropped in to see what Infinity Ward has created. But, as is the case with many major new releases, Warzone 2 has seen its fair share of bugs and glitches since its launch on November 16.
The latest issue being reported is an error message asking players to “purchase Modern Warfare 2 to have access to everything” when trying to start a Warzone 2 match. We’ve got tips on how to get around the issue below.
If you’re playing Warzone 2 with friends that aren’t having trouble accessing the game, having them invite you to a lobby seems to prevent the error from appearing. You can do this from the ‘Friends’ tab of your console’s menu or in-game on PC.
Sadly, for solo players, there is no surefire way to solve this issue but there are a few methods that have worked for other players. They are:
The “purchase Modern Warfare 2” message appears to be caused by a glitch that tries to load players into Modern Warfare 2’s menus, even though they are looking for Warzone 2 matches. Other users that own both games have reported being randomly moved into MW2 when looking for a match.
It’s likely that this bizarre message is a result of the heavy strain that Warzone 2’s servers are under in the days after launch. We’d expect the issue to resolve itself or Infinity Ward to release a fix very soon.
In the meantime, players can rest assured that Warzone 2 is a strictly free-to-play title that doesn’t require Modern Warfare 2 to play. So, there’s no need to purchase MW2 if you’re just looking for a battle royale experience.
