MW2 matchmaking not working is one of the broader issues compared to the present and resolved issues we have seen with Modern Warfare 2, even since it launched globally on October 28, 2022. While most of the bugs, like the Party issue that caused the game crash, got fixed, the matchmaking not working problem persist. This guide will talk about how to fix matchmaking not working in MW2. 

How To Fix MW2 Matchmaking Not Working

Here are some of the general troubleshooting steps that will help you fix the MW2 matchmaking not working issue. 

Exit And Re-Enter Lobby, Restart The System

Whenever you face a matchmaking not working issue in MW2, the first thing you should try is exiting the game lobby and then entering it again. Next, restart the game and then the system.

Check MW2 Server Status 

If the game servers are down due to maintenance or other activity, you will get a matchmaking error while playing Modern Warfare 2. So, ensure that the game servers are up. 

Check Your Internet Connection

Players can also encounter matchmaking issues in MW2 if their internet connection is too slow or not working. So, make sure to check that before performing the below troubleshooting. 


Try using a free VPN like Psiphon or alternatives, as the VPN will help bypass any network blockage. 

Clear Cache

Refer to this Activision Support blog to clear the cache on your respective platforms. Many times, clearing the cache has worked to resolve the issue.

Reset Your Network Or Router

Resetting your Network via the Network and Internet Settings or your Router using the Default Gateway can fix the MW2 Hueneme Concord error.

Update MW2 

If MW2 is not updated to the latest version, you will get a matchmaking error, while mostly you won’t be able to enter matchmaking at all. So make sure to keep the game updated. 

Update Your Graphics Driver

This helps fix crash issues, but you can try it, as even the devs recommend keeping your Graphics Drivers updated before running MW2. Whenever an update is available for your Graphic Card, and you try to run MW2, you will get a prompt to update your drivers, accept it and update the respective driver to fix general issues with the game, including matchmaking. 

That is it. That concludes our guide on how to fix the matchmaking not working in MW2. While you are here, check out some other guides on COD MW2:
