Warzone 2 Is Telling Players To Buy Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 If Want To Continue Playing The Free Game

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came with its share of issues. One of the biggest being the revamped menu UI that utterly confused players and made finding anything a task of its own. Then, of course, there were issues related to gameplay, like a ping system that turned into a wallhack, annoying proximity chat, and sheer lack of new maps. All of these, and more, are enough to make some players wish they hadn't spent so much money on the game – just yet at least. At least we can play Warzone 2 without having to worry about spending too much on it – well, most of us.

With the launch of Modern Warfare 2, the free, battle royale version of the game also received a 2.0 update. Warzone received a bunch of new modes, maps, and an overarching story. However, while Warzone 2 is a free game mode, some players seem to be experiencing an issue where they get locked out and are asked to purchase Modern Warfare 2.

As spotted by PC Gamer, players have taken to Reddit, complaining about this issue and searching for a fix. "Since yesterday I played probably around 6 Warzone 2.0 matches with no problem (finished my last match a few minutes ago)," wrote Unf0cused. "Now when I try to play it, when I click 'Battle Royale Solos' I get the "Purchase Modern Warfare II to have access to everything" window (I've also tried the other BR variants with the same result). I've restarted the game and my PC, but that didn't help."

The comments section was filled with people berating Activision for launching the game with so many issues. Some went as far as accusing the company of ignoring this issue so that players would be forced to spend money in order to play a free game with their friends. The poster later updated saying that they heard from other threads that the issue is wide-spread and has affected numerous players. Even the in-beta DMZ mode is unplayable as the lobby doesn't populate.

Activision is yet to address the issue, and considering its severity, it should ideally do so soon.
