You’ll be eager to join a new game right away when playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but a match error is causing players to keep waiting for longer periods in the lobby. Here’s how you can fix this issue.
Call of Duty players are not strangers errors that ruin their game, like the Bravo 433 Destructive Gator error code, in Black Ops Cold War. Modern Warfare players are still suffering from Error Code 38, as well as another annoying bug.
If you’re looking for a new session, you might find yourself stuck on a screen with the message “searching for a match” being displayed. If you don’t want to keep waiting for long, here are all the solutions you can try in Modern Warfare.
How to fix “searching for a match” error in Modern Warfare
You might find yourself stuck in the searching for a match” screen because there aren’t enough available players for a game on your platform of choice. If you have a Call of Duty account, then you can enable Crossplay.
If your gamertag is linked with your CoD account, then you can get this done the next time you log into Modern Warfare. Here’s what you need to do:
- Launch Modern Warfare
- Go to settings
- Navigate to the Account tab
- Change Crossplay from “Disabled” to “Enabled”
That’s all you need to do to enable Crossplay in Modern Warfare. This will widen the search on other platforms, which will increase your chances of finding enough players for a single match. Be sure to enable Crossplay Communication from the same tab.

- Head to the Multiplayer screen

- Move to the right of that option, and you’ll see the filters
- Select it, and you’ll see all the different filters that enabled by a gold checked circle
- Disable as many as you can, and then return to the previous screen to start the match
