How to Fix MW2 and Warzone 2 Error Code 0x00001338 (6036) N

It is important to note that these solutions may require some time and effort to implement. We recommend going through them methodically, one at a time. Additionally, it’s possible that you may have already attempted some of these fixes, so be sure to filter out any redundant solutions.

Disable On-Demand Texture Streaming

On-Demand Texture Streaming is a great feature introduced by Infinity Ward (IW) to reduce the stress on the game and download content as you play. However, this feature has been causing issues since the Vanguard update. If you can access the game’s menu, try disabling ODTS.

Disable all overlays

Overlays such as game bars, GeForce Experience, Steam, Discord, etc. can cause interference with the game’s process leading to crashes. We suggest disabling all types of overlays.

Delete the Players Folder in Documents

Deleting the Players folder is a fix that also works to resolve the Warzone 2 stuttering issue. However, it will cost you your custom settings, so taking a backup is advised. You can find this folder in Documents > Call of Duty > players.

Increase the Virtual Memory

Virtual Memory works the same way as your RAM, and it’s essential that the game has enough of it. You can refer to this guide to increase the VM and hopefully fix the Warzone and MW2 ‘The Application Has unexpectedly stopped working’ error.

Try Running the Game in Windowed Mode

If there are performance issues in games, you should avoid the Windowed mode, but this mode is great when the game is crashing with or without any error.

Verify Game Files

If there are corrupted game files, you will most definitely crash. So, if this has been happening to you too often, try verifying the game files in your respective launcher.

Launch the Game in Safe Mode After the Crash

After a crash, if you attempt to launch a game, you will be prompted to launch it in safe mode. While this fix does not do much, you should give it a shot. Choose to launch in safe mode.

Reinstall the Game

If none of the above solutions worked for you, then reinstalling the game might be your last option. Uninstall the game completely and delete any leftover files from your system. Then download the game again and install it from scratch. This should fix any errors that might be causing the game to crash.

Switch Off Parallax Effects

Parallax mapping is a technique used to give textures the illusion of depth, but it can cause some issues with games. Turning off Parallax effects may help resolve the Warzone 2 and MW2 ‘The Application Has unexpectedly stopped working’ error. You can find this setting in the game’s graphics settings.

Update GPU Drivers

Updating the GPU drivers can fix various issues with games, including the ‘The Application Has unexpectedly stopped working’ error. You can check for updates using the GeForce Experience app or by visiting the GPU manufacturer’s website directly. It’s important to note that when updating drivers, it’s recommended to perform a clean install to ensure that any previous driver files are removed.

Update COD Modern Warfare II

Game updates can also help resolve the Warzone 2 and MW2 ‘The Application Has unexpectedly stopped working’ error. Make sure that you have the latest game updates installed by checking for updates in the game launcher or platform (Steam,, etc.).

Repair Game Files

If the game files are corrupt or missing, it can cause various issues with the game, including the ‘The Application Has unexpectedly stopped working’ error. You can repair game files by going to the game launcher and looking for the option to verify or repair game files. This process may take some time depending on the size of the game, but it can help fix the issue.

It’s important to note that not all solutions will work for everyone, so it’s important to try several of them to see what works best for you.
