How to Fix Error Code 14515 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 error code 14515 can pop up randomly and seemingly has no rhyme or reason. Often, it appears when trying to enter matchmaking.

What Does Error Code MW2 14515 Mean?

  • Error code 14515 means that the Modern Warfare 2 servers are overloaded. Too many players are trying to enter matchmaking simultaneously, and matchmaking queues are swamped. This can be because of an event or the start of a new season.

The reasoning doesn’t make encountering Modern Warfare 2 error code 14515 any better. No one wants to see the dreaded message that says you can’t enter matchmaking.

Potential Solutions to Fix Error Code 14515 in Modern Warfare 2

Because this is a server-side issue, there’s no definitive way to fix error code 14515 in Modern Warfare 2. If you come across the message that says you’re unable to join matchmaking, it’s best to check the MW2 Down Detector site here or keep tabs on the official CoD Twitter (X) profile here. It’s also a good idea to check the official Activision support channel, which tracks the current server status per platform.

  • Indeed, the best way to fix the bug is by doing nothing at all. Most players simply wait things out until the load on the server lessens.

Troubleshooting MW2 Error Code 14515

If you want to be sure MW2 error code 14515 is server-side and not on your end, you can go through the typical troubleshooting steps:

  • Exit and restart the game.
  • Restart your device.
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Reset your router.
  • Use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi.
  • Adjust your firewall or antivirus settings.

That’s how to fix error code 14515 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Hopefully, one of the above tips helped you get back to fraggin’ and baggin’ in MW2. Some suggest it’s also possible to get past the issue by flushing your DNS or uninstalling and reinstalling the game. But I’d wager those steps are a bit overboard for this type of problem.
