All Dev Error 6144 Fixes in Warzone and MW2

Since there are multiple potential causes for MW2 Dev Error 6144, it can take a bit of work to resolve it. However, there are a few things you can do to (hopefully) eradicate it.

  • Restart your system: Restarting is the magic cure-all first step that can resolve a lot of tech issues. It’s one of the primary ways to fix Dev Error 6144.
  • Verify your game files: When you verify files, any missing or corrupted files are replaced, which can cause a plethora of potential issues to surface, including this one for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone.
  • Check/update your drivers: Check that your drivers are up to date. If not, update them to the latest version. Here’s how to update Nvidia drivers and AMD drivers.
  • Disable overlays: Sometimes, the overlays you use can cause conflicts with other programs. Disable any overlays you have running to see if that fixes Dev Error 6144 for MW2.
  • Check your system memory: This doesn’t apply to console players, but MW2 on PC requires a minimum of 8 GB RAM to run, so you want to ensure that you’ve got that much available. Consider closing any non-essential programs via Task Manager. Doing so also reduces the load on your CPU, which can be helpful.
  • Reduce game settings: If your rig only meets the minimum requirements for Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone, you’ll run into issues. Make sure to drop your settings to match those recommended requirements. If you’re running the game on Ultra, for example, with all the fine details turned up, it will stress your system, potentially causing Dev Error 6144.
  • Submit a support ticket: If all else fails, submit a support ticket on the Activision support site with your system information and the error. The team should be able to provide more in-depth help specific to your system or at least look into the issue to remedy it on a larger scale.

That’s it for all ways to fix Dev Error 6144 in MW2 and Warzone. Hopefully this error will calm down over the coming days since it’s so prevalent. Check out more of our Warzone and MW2 guides here on GameSkinny.
