As aforementioned, this error is mostly affecting players who don’t own Modern Warfare 2, which is weird because Warzone 2.0 was released as a free-to-play title, so there’s no need to purchase Modern Warfare 2 in order to play Warzone 2.0.

One of the first things you can try to fix the issue is to install Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer files. This is because while Warzone 2.0 was installed, it did not install all of the required files, specifically multiplayer files and Warzone 2.0 is a multiplayer game through and through.

So to do this, go to your settings and at the bottom, you’ll see “Manage Files”, if you’re missing the necessary multiplayer files, you can download them from there and this might just fix the ‘Purchase Modern Warfare 2′ Error.

Another fix you can try is to restart the game and check for updates as this is a frequently occurring issue. So simply close the game and check if the developers have released an update. If there’s an update, do update the game and open the game once again.

Lastly, if all of the above fails to work, you can reach out to Activision support for more in-depth troubleshooting. And even if they don’t have a fix for you just yet, they will acknowledge the issue and hopefully commence working on an update for all affected players.
