Some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players on Xbox One X are reporting that the game is causing their console to crash.

The latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise launched on October 25, returning fans to arguably the most game’s most popular sub-series, Modern Warfare.

For some players, however, it sounds like the launch has been a frustrating experience, as there appears to be an issue that can cause Xbox One X consoles to crash.

Exactly what causes the bug isn’t entirely clear, although some players are reporting that it seems to occur when they get shot – which, of course, makes the game almost entirely unplayable.

In addition to crashes related to being shot, Reddit user AlludingIllusion stated that they have also experienced the issue when trying to make a recording, and at the end of a match.

Fortunately, Infinity Ward have already acknowledged the bug and announced they’re working on a fix, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too long before this issue is addressed.

This isn’t the only technical issue that has hit the game on its release day. Shortly after the launch, some players found themselves unable to connect to the online servers, which Activision stated was an issue related to the massive volume of players loading into the game at launch.

The server issue has now been resolved, although neither Activision nor Infinity Ward have yet provided an update on the Xbox One X crashing issue.

Modern Warfare is a return to a more classic Call of Duty feel in more than just the title, with the game’s mechanics and pacing more closely resembling the original Modern Warfare trilogy than the variations on advanced movement and powerful specialist abilities that have been common in recent years.

On the competitive side, however, Modern Warfare will also break new ground for the series, with the introduction of the franchised Call of Duty League marking a major shift in the structure of the professional circuit.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
