For many players, the only way to get the full Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 FPS experience is to team up and play with or against their friends and compare their stats. The fact that you can do this online across platforms is one of the game’s key selling points. This is usually a simple system, with players being able to find their friends no matter what platform they use via Activision’s friend request function. Unfortunately, some players are finding that their MW2 Friends Requests ability is locked. Read on to find out how to fix this issue.
Why are my friend requests blocked on MW2?
Unfortunately, this is just a glitch that affects some players. The first thing you should try is to restart MW2, and relog into your Activision account. If this doesn’t fix the issue, get a friend to send you a friend request and use the Notifications tab to accept it, by following these instructions:
- Launch the game.
- Go to Settings, Account, Network.
- Note down your Activision ID.
- Immediately get your friend to use your ID to send you the request.
- Accept it as it arrives as a notification.
- If you don’t see the notification go to the Notifications tab, select the All filter, and accept the request.
This should unlock the Friends Request option. In the unlikely situation that this still doesn’t fix the problem, remember you can also manage friend requests in the Call of Duty Companion app that is available for both Android and iOS devices.
