If you’re trying to get into the MW3 beta today, you might be running into some issues getting the beta code to work that you got with your preorder. This should be a temporary issue, but there are a couple of things you might be able to do to sort this issue out. In this guide, we’ll go over how to fix the MW3 preorder code not working.

Call of Duty: MW3 Beta Preorder Code Not Working Fix

It seems you’ll only run into this issue if you preordered Modern Warfare 3 through vendors other than the PlayStation Store. Don’t fret just yet, though! You should be able to get into the game after going through some simple steps. If not, just wait a few hours and you should be able to since the game’s servers are under heavy strain.

  • Restart your PlayStation 5. This is the first thing you should try. This simple solution has helped a lot of preorder holders running into this problem and it very well may help you too.
  • Restore your licenses. This is another simple fix. From the PS5 menu:
    • Head to Settings.
    • Choose Users and Accounts.
    • Choose Other.
    • Select “Restore Licenses”

Either one of these options should allow you into the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta, but these fixes aren’t set in stone. It’s very possible you might just have to wait until Activision fixes the servers on their end. Both of these fixes are worth a try on your end, though, especially since you probably preordered specifically to get in early and for the other bonuses.

Hopefully one of the above fixes the Call of Duty: MW3 beta preorder code not working. There’s a lot of fun to come, even if neither of the above work and you have to wait a few hours. Look for MW3 guides here on GameSkinny as the game rolls out to launch on all platforms next week.
