Known Issues

Activision has released a lengthy list of known issues that are currently being worked on, with patches on the way. Most notably, the game frequently crashes and has poor frame rate, split-screen players aren’t getting in-game rewards, pre-order content isn’t unlocking as it should, and console players are experiencing serious slow downs while in the menu screen.

The good news is that if you got your copy through the Windows 10 store, then most of the crashing and frame rate issues are scheduled to be fixed with the first patch coming next week. (Even if you can’t actually use the multiplayer…)

If you’re a Steam player on the other hand, all of these issues are still “under investigation” with no resolution date on the horizon, so you’ll have to find your own fixes for now.

Possible Fixes

For Steam users having problems, first and foremost always verify the Steam cache. This is a consistent Steam problem where some files aren’t downloading properly during the initial installation.

Right-click the Infinite Warfare link in your Steam library and choose Properties, then open the Local Files tab and click Verify Integrity Of Game Cache. If a file is missing or corrupt, this will fix the issue.

 Verifying Steam Cache

Next up, both NVIDIA and AMD just this week released new drivers specifically for Infinite Warfare to resolve frame rate issues. Updating to these newer drivers has been resolving a lot of issues so far. Grab them here:

If these Infinite Warfare troubleshooting tips didn’t solve your issue, be sure to report the problem to Activision here and get it on their list of known issues to be resolved in a future patch.
