If the Modern Warfare 2 beta keeps collapsing, here's what to do

If the Modern Warfare 2 beta keeps collapsing, here's what to do ...

After a long day of work, you settle down at your console, the squad joins you on Discord, and you open up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for some grinding with the homies.

Then it crashes.

A game crash is nothing like it, especially if you're in the middle of a heater and racking up kills on noobs online. It's normal, and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it. Other times, there's nothing you can do about it.

Players on PlayStation are reporting crashing problems during the initial hours of the MW2 beta, particularly on the PS4. This is disappointing although unsurprising because PS4s are old hardware at this point and MW2 is designed for the next generation.

Here's what you should do about those annoying crashes in MW2.

What to do if the MW2 beta keeps crashing?

As the game is put to the test by millions of people for the first time, be aware that this is a beta. There are likely to be some downtime, server lag, and other issues. Activision and Infinity Ward will continue working on the game and fixing its issues throughout its development and maintenance.

CE-108255-1 is a common crash error, especially on the PlayStation versions of the beta, and there are a couple of strategies you can take to mitigate the problem.

Here's what the PlayStation error code says.

  • If this error occurs after launching a game, delete the game in which the error occurs fromSettings>Storage, and reinstall the game.
  • Start your PS5 in Safe Mode and perform 5. Rebuild Database.
  • If the error occurs again, reset your PS5 fromSettings>System>System Software>Reset PS5, and try installing the application again. (Please take a backup of your data in advance.)
  • If the above means do not work, please contact PlayStation Support.

The odds are, however, that this could just be a beta-related issue that will require an update or a patch to correct. Stay tuned to Call of Duty, Infinity Ward, and Activisions' social channels for further information.
