Call of Duty
The Goldflake error has become a nagging nuisance for some Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific players since the Season 1 update was released. The error was somewhat common before the update but ever since Caldera entered the fray, it’s gotten exceedingly worse. There’s no one root cause for the error message, though some players report that it occurs if a console is left idle for too long.
Goldflake is a network-based error message so players can’t use traditional fixes to try and get rid of it. At the moment, there are only one or two short-term fixes that should hold off the error message. However, until Raven Software releases some kind of patch, the Goldflake error message will continue to persist in Warzone Pacific.
Below, players can see their options when it comes to dealing with the issue.
Fixing the Goldflake error in Warzone Pacific
If players end up seeing the Goldflake error pop up on their screen, they have one of two options. The first is to simply restart their console or PC and attempt to load up Warzone Pacific again. While this doesn’t seem like the best of fixes, it has worked so far.
That won’t always solve players’ problems with the error message, though. In that case, players will want to perform a hard reset of their console or PC. This is done by either unplugging the system from its power and replugging it back in or holding down the power button to shut off the system. Then, boot the system back up and head back into Warzone Pacific to see if the Goldflake error has been kept at bay.
Raven Software has already released one post-launch update in Season 1 of Warzone Pacific. Another is also confirmed for the near future, as the developers continue to squash bugs and balance the battle royale’s weapons. Players hope that update will contain a permanent fix for the Goldflake error message in Warzone Pacific.
