If you’re a fan of the Modern Warfare series, you may have come across the infamous “Status Installing Stuck” glitch.
Luckily, there’s an easy fix for this problem. In this blog post, we’ll show you step-by-step how to get your game up and running again.
How to Fix the Status Installing Stuck Glitch
Players who encounter the frozen “Status Installing” screen upon game launch should try the steps below. But first, users must first back out until they reach the game’s very first launch screen.
Then, quickly press play and cancel before proceeding to the next menu. This will give them the option to “Go Offline,” which they should choose. The campaign must then be fully loaded.
After completing the main story, players should return to the main menu and try accessing the game normally again. If this fix does not work the first time, it almost always works the second time.
If the bug persists despite several restart attempts, players may need to delete and reinstall the game file. To do so, they must first access their console’s settings and storage options and then choose to delete the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 files.
Before doing so, players should ensure that their save data is backed up and that they only uninstall the game and not the save data. After removing the file, players should reinstall it before restarting their console.
This method may take some time because the file size is quite large, but it should resolve the issue. Given the ease with which post-launch patches can be added to games, it has unfortunately become all too common for developers to release their products with numerous bugs.
Most are minor annoyances that can be overlooked, but some, like this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 bug, are game-breaking. Fortunately for fans eager to jump into the action-packed FPS , these fixes usually resolve the issue.
Hopefully, the game’s developer, Infinity Ward, will soon release a patch that permanently fixes this issue.
