The list of dev errors that have popped up in Call of Duty: Warzone over the years is plentiful, to say the least. Players have been plagued with different dev error codes since Warzone was introduced. Dev errors are bugs with the game that occur for a variety of reasons, but most of them stop players from actually accessing a match in Warzone. In Season 4 Reloaded, one of the most infamous dev errors in Warzone, 6036, has reared its ugly head again.
If players have never encountered dev error 6036 before, then they should consider themselves lucky. This bug most often occurs whenever a new update has been released in Call of Duty. As most players know, Season 4 Reloaded arrived Wednesday, delivering a bunch of content and changes to Warzone. Unfortunately for some, they can’t access all of the content because of the pesky dev error 6036. To see how to potentially fix this error from occurring, keep reading below.
Fixing Dev Error 6036 in Warzone
The first thing that players need to check if they’re encountering this bug is if their game has been updated. To do this, players can close out of the Warzone application and check for an update. If your system says there’s an update that needs to be installed, then that’s likely your fix. However, if the prompt says that your game is up to date, then you can move on to other fixes.
One of the fixes that has proven most effective is for PC players. Close out of Warzone and go into your computer’s file directory and locate the Warzone application folder. From here, find the “Data” folder and delete it. Sometimes, the data folder becomes corrupt and needs to be reset in order for Warzone to work.
If that fix didn’t do the trick, you can open Warzone and head into the settings. Go to the Graphics tab of the settings and disable cache sun shadows and the cache box.
Finally, if none of those fixes worked, then the only thing you can try is to uninstall and then reinstall Warzone. This is a last-ditch step simply because of how many GBs Warzone currently takes to download. Players with a slower internet connection speed will be waiting for the game to download for quite some time.
For players still seeing dev error 6036 in Warzone after all of that, they can attempt to reach out to Activision’s Support page.
