Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the latest COD first person shooter game launched on 13th November. As the game is relatively new, some issues and bugs are inevitable and the game crashing and freezing issue is one of them. It is one of the most annoying issues which can turn the tables in a match.

If you are facing such an issue, there are some troubleshooting methods you can try to fix it. The methods are slightly common for consoles and PC players and may fix your problems.


For console users, the first method is to check if their XBox or PlayStation softwares are up-to-date or not. Make sure to be on the latest version to enjoy the game seamlessly and if you have any updates pending, install them.

Keep your consoles in a spacious place with enough ventilation. The game is heavy and sometimes, overheating can be the reason for lags and crashes. If the issue still persists, clear the game data for PlayStation and clear game cache for Xbox and relaunch the game.

If you are still having any issue, you can contact PlayStation Support and Xbox Support service and seek assistance. If the game itself has acknowledged the existence of this issue, wait until an update or small patch is released.
