Workarounds to Fix the #x41 Error

As per the observation, the issue is lying with any one of the COD player’s accounts joined in the party. So here are a couple of things that you can do.

1. Change the Party Leader

As the issue is occurring due to some issue in any one of the player’s accounts, you should try changing the leader of your party. The leader is the one that can start the game by searching for it, if the account of the new leader is not affected by this issue, you should be able to play the match.

2. Restore Licenses (PS4)

A PlayStation 4 player reported that he was able to resolve this issue by restoring the licenses. If you are facing this issue on your PS4 or PS5, then you can follow the below steps to restore the licenses.

For PlayStation 4:

  • Go to Settings > Account Management Restore Licenses.
  • Select Restore.

For PlayStation 5:

  • Go to Settings > Users and Accounts > Other > Restore Licenses.
  • Select Restore.

3. Install new memory

A player has also shared his experience that after running a memory troubleshooter on his Windows PC, he found some errors.

He then installed new memory on his PC and that resulted in the #x42 error gone from the Modern Warfare 2 game. If you have access to some additional new RAM, you can try this fix.

4. Verify the Game Files

Sometimes files get corrupted or deleted so it becomes important to verify the game files. This process checks the integrity of the game files and downloads any missing or corrupted files. Here’s how to do it:

1. Open Steam and go to your game library.

2. Right-click on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and select Properties.

3. Click on the Local Files tab and select Verify Integrity of Game Files.

Wait for the process to complete, and Steam will download any missing or corrupted files. Launch the game and check if the #x41 error is fixed.

5. Check the server status

If even after following the above-mentioned workarounds the #x41 issue is not resolved then you can check the Activision server status. Sometimes, the error can be caused by server issues, and if this is the case, there is nothing that you can do but wait until the issue is resolved. You can check the server status by visiting the official website of the game or by checking the community forums.

6. Contact Activision support

Another potential solution to fix the #x41 error in Modern Warfare 2 is to contact Activision Support. Activision is the company that developed and published Modern Warfare 2, so they may have more specialized knowledge and resources to help resolve the issue.

To contact Activision Support, visit their website and navigate to the support page for Modern Warfare 2. From there, you can submit a support ticket or engage in live chat with a support representative. Be sure to provide as much detail about the issue as possible, including any error messages you have received and the steps you have already taken to try and resolve the problem.

And here comes the end of this fixing guide. I am hoping this guide would have helped you in resolving the issue. As of writing this guide, there is no official acknowledgment of the #x41 MW2 error.

We can just hope that Activision will soon resolve this issue. Activision might acknowledge and fix the issue early if a lot of players report this issue.
