Since its inception back in 2020, the COD Warzone has taken the battle royals genre by surprise. But with the increase in the number of players, the error message ”Content Package is no longer available in Call of Duty” appears. If you are one of these gamers who have seen this error while playing the game, this is happening because of a corrupt file.
1. COD Warzone is a huge game and needs at least 10-15 GB of free space to perform properly. Delete any games you don’t play from the SSD or clear other files.
2. Disabling certain graphics components such as Texture Streaming and V-Sync options have been useful for severe real users. So, try disabling these settings and test.
Fix 1 – Power Cycle the system
Power Cycling the device often resolves these issues. So, whether you are using a PS5, PS4 or Xbox, you should try these steps –
PS5/PS4 users –
Step 1 – Just press & hold the PS button for a few seconds on the Dual Shock controller.
Step 2 – The power Options screen should load up. There, select “Turn off PS5” and hit Enter.
Wait until the console shuts down completely.
Step 3 – Now, as the console has shut down properly, detach all the power cables from the console. Then, wait for 5 seconds and then, plug back the cables into the console.
Step 4 – After this, turn ON the console.
When it loads up, launch COD Warzone and check.
Xbox users –
Step 1 – Make sure the Xbox console is turned ON.
Step 2 – Press and hold the Power button on your Xbox console. Do this until the LED on the front of the console dies. This way, it will shut down completely.
Step 3 – Now, unplug the power cable from the console. Then, you have to wait for an entire minute for the cached content to get erased.
Step 4 – After this, connect the Xbox console to the power source.
Step 5 – Switch it ON.
Now, you can test COD Warzone on your Xbox once again.
PC (Xbox, Steam, and Battle.NET) users –
Step 1 – Close the game. Then, click the Windows icon and then, tap the power button on the Start Menu. Then, click “Shut down” to shut down the system.
Step 2 – Wait until the system shuts down. Then you have to wait for 15 seconds. Then, detach all the cables connected to the system and restart it using the power button.
Step 3 – Now, as the system turns ON, launch COD Warzone and test if this works.
Fix 2 – Test the COD server
After going through several forums and COD community pages, we have identified a server issue that is happening on the COD server in several regions as the reason behind this issue.
Usually, these server issues are nothing new and have been here for a while now.
Step 1 – You can easily check the current status of the platforms from the official Activision status page.
Step 2 – You will notice the complete list of all the platforms. So, click on the platform you want to open.
(Like – if you are facing the issue on PC, you can either check Batte.NET or Steam.)
Now, you can see the server status here.
If you notice a certain platform is down or showing any problem message, you just have to wait for the server to go online once again.
Fix 2 – Run the file integrity check
This absence of the Content Package shows up due to the disappearance of certain game components. You can run a file integrity check and test it out yourself.
Steam users –
Step 1 – Open the Steam app.
Step 2 – When the Steam client launches, head on to the “LIBRARY” section. Go through all the games you own and find out the “Call of Duty Warzone”.
Step 3 – Then, right-click that app and click “Properties”.
This should take you to the game properties page.
Step 4 – On the left-hand side of the page, switch to the “LOCAL FILES” tab.
Step 5 – Here, on the right-hand pane, you will see an option called “VERIFY integrity of game files…”. Click this option to run the file verification process.
Now, you have to wait for Steam to analyze all the components of Call of Duty Warzone and replace the missing files if it finds any.
Battle.net users –
Step 1 – Launch Battle.net app.
Step 2 – Go to the “COD Warzone” game. Now, click “Options” to open that.
Step 3 – After this, select the “Scan and Repair” option.
Wait for it to scan the game files and all of its components.
Relaunch the game when the scanning and repairing process has ended.
After this, play the game and this time you won’t see any Content Package errors at all.
Fix 3 – Update the game
If a small bug is causing this problem, look for the latest update for the game. So, install the latest update for the game.
For PC users(Steam and Battle.NET)
Whenever you open Steam or Battle.NET, it automatically starts to download the update for the game. So, if you are already playing the game, close it and Steam or Battle.Net (whatever you are using).
You can additionally check in the LIBRARY for further updates.
For PS4, PS5 and Xbox users
You can just close Call of Duty Warzone and restart the console once. This way, when it starts up next time, it will automatically start to install the updates at the startup.
Fix 4 – Clear the cached data
This issue can be caused by the corrupted cache on your console, so clean out the cache on your system.
For Xbox users
Step 1 – Use the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide menu.
Step 2 – There, click the “Profile & System” tab.
Step 3 – On your left-hand side, you can select the “Settings” option and use the A button on your controller to access it.
Step 4 – Now, go to this point –
Device & Connections > Blu-Ray
Step 5 – In there, click “Persistent Storage” to open that. There, run the “Clear Persistent Storage” option to clear it out.
After clearing out the cache, restart Xbox once. Then, launch COD Warzone and test.
Fix 6 – Uninstall and reinstall COD Warzone
If everything has failed to fix the problem, you have to uninstall and reinstall COD Warzone.
We know this game is huge in size, but if everything fails, you do have to uninstall and reinstall it.
Steam users –
Step 1 – On Steam, go to the “LIBRARY“.
Step 2 – Here, look for the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Warzone” game.
Step 3 – Once you have found that right-click the game and click “Manage>“. Then, further, click “Uninstall” to uninstall it from your system.
If it asks for your confirmation, affirm it and wait until the uninstallation process is complete.
Step 4 – Finally, open Steam and go ahead to the “LIBRARY“. The game should appear here.
Step 5 – So, right-click the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Warzone” and click “INSTALL“.
Now, follow the on-screen installation process (like where to install, whether to create a desktop icon or not, etc. ).
