The launch of the Pacific map on Warzone has been eagerly anticipated, with lots of Warzone fans eager to test out the new arena. But that excitement has quickly turned to anger and frustration for a lot of players. Many have simply been unable to access the game. The Call Of Duty: Warzone Goldflake error has caught out a number of people. In this article, we'll let you know what's going on, and how you might be able to fix it. Here's everything you need to know.
How To Fix Call Of Duty: Warzone Goldflake Error
If you have been suffering from the Goldflake error, here are our top tips to try to get past it, and onto the game:
- Try restarting your console. Do this as a hard reset. Turn off the console, unplug it from the mains supply for thirty seconds or so, then try again.
- If this doesn't work, the only other known fix at this point (for Xbox players) is to sign-up for an Xbox Live Gold subscription. The bug seems to only affect players who don't have this subscription. So try signing up for an account. It is a subscription service, so only do this if you are prepared to pay for it.
If you still find yourself having problems, you can submit a support ticket via the Warzone support pages. It's worth pointing out that at this stage, the fix seems to only be temporary. So even once you've done this, you may well run into the Goldflake error the next time you try to start up the game.
What Is The Goldflake Error?
The Goldflake error seems to be predominantly affecting players on Xbox. There is no clear reason why this error is happening. But it is clear that it is an issue on the server-side, rather than anything that players are doing to cause it. For some reason, although the game is free-to-play, it seems that some players are unable to access the game without having an active Xbox Live Gold account. This, of course, is a paid subscription service.
For some players, this error may also appear as a result of trying to log back into the game after putting your console into Rest Mode. If you find yourself with a Goldflake error after your console has been in power-saving mode, the restart we mentioned above should help.
The only surefire remedy is to wait for the necessary patch to fix the underlying problem. So keep your eyes peeled for any updates from the developers, and install them as soon as you can. Until a patch is released, however, the fixes that we've outlined above should act as a workaround. Even if you find yourself having to do this repeatedly.
