Usually, the PC port of the game experiences the most errors but in this case, console players are also seeing the same or a similar Modern Warfare fatal error that crashing the game. The error is persistent and resolves after you reboot the game, but occurs again. Similar bugs have been reported with Modern Warfare and Warzone after patches.
It seems the bug has been reintroduced with the Season 6. If you have encountered the Modern Warfare or Warzone fatal error, the first thing you should do is update the graphics card drivers. Just a day prior to the launch of Season 6, Nvidia released a new patch for Game Ready Drivers. If the latest Game Ready Drivers don’t resolve the issue, try installing the Studio Drivers from Nvidia.
When installing the Nvidia graphics card drivers, perform a clean install after downloading the software manually from the official website. Sometimes the latest driver might not be available via GeForce Experience.
Once you have updated the drivers, reboot the system and try playing the game. If the game files are corrupted that could also be a cause of the issue. Depending on the launcher you are using there should be Scan and Repair or Verify Integrity of Game Files. Try and check if there are corrupt game files using the launcher feature and repair it.
Hopefully, the above solutions resolve your error. For console players, your options are quite limited, the only fix suggested is to reinstall the game. But, that should be your last option. We suggest you wait for a patch from the developers that follow right after a Season update. The patch will resolve most common and fatal errors.
Like the previous seasons, hopefully, the developers will release a patch soon that fixes the Modern Warfare & Warzone Fatal Error 0x0000000142220c20 8077539 0xc0000005 ModernWarfare.exe error.
