What is the Call of Duty Savannah error?

According to Activision’s official support page, Warzone’s Savannah errors “typically occur when an update is being deployed. Once the latest version of the game is installed, the error no longer appears.”

The Savannah error often prevents players from joining any members from their friend list, which obviously has a negative impact on those that enjoy playing as part of a team.

Warzone’s Savannah error often returns with new updates.

If you’re encountering the Savannah error on PC, then simply update your game to the latest version. To do this, simply follow the instructions outlined below:

  1. Open up Battle.net 
  2. Select the ‘Warzone‘ tab from the menu
  3. Hit the ‘Update’ button to begin installing the latest version of the game
  4. Open Warzone and try to join your friends 

While the above method works for many players, there are times where an update just refuses to download. If your game hasn’t found the update, then select the cog next to the ‘Play’ button and hit ‘Check for Updates’. This should force your game to begin downloading the latest version.
