Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update’s error prompt issue fix may cause stat rollbacks

Yesterday saw an update get released for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which added additional loadouts, changed the playlist, and gave players crossbows. There were also a few fixes bundled in but amongst the code there was an error, and now that error prompt has impacted players’ stats. Infinity Ward is aware of this issue and has deployed a small backend fix while working on another more permanent fix. However, the larger fix will have some caveats and Infinity Ward explains in the following statement.

Loadout Slots:


Part of today’s update included additional loadout slots. If you created classes in these slots, you’ll see that they have been reset back to default. This will only happen one time. If you didn’t create any additional classes in those slots, you won’t notice anything. This also fixes an issue where clicking on these slots could kick some players back to the multiplayer screen.

Error Prompt:

  • If you were presented with the error prompt and did not click “Yes” and closed the game, your stats are still intact. Feel free to play as usual.
  • If you did click “Yes” – you most likely noticed your stats in the combat record, leaderboards, custom classes, and Operators were reset. Nothing related to your progression was lost, so your rank, XP, Battle Pass progression, weapon progression, unlocks, purchases, etc., are all still intact.

We’re actively working on a fix for this, but do not have one to deploy tonight. You are still able to play the game as usual and your progression will still track, but please be aware that once we do have a fix, we may have to roll back your stats to the state they were in prior to today’s update.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work through this issue and thank you to everyone who has helped by sending us their information, videos, and screenshots. We’ll provide another update when we have more information for those whose stats were reset and again, thank you all for your patience.

As the statement iterates player stats may be rolled back as part of the larger fix, so any progress you have made since the last update went out will likely be reset. Once we know of when Infinity Ward has rolled out a fix we’ll let you know.
