MW2 Error Code DIVER – How To Fix

Holy Diver, you've been trapped for too long in the midnight sea.

Error codes and live service games go hand in hand these days. Games like CoD Modern Warfare 2 are technical marvels for not only their single-player components but their multiplayer aspects that tie in multiple iterations of the game, like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. A lot of that is handled by complex networking, constant software updates, and more. As such, something going awry is an eventuality more than a probability. The error code we can help you with is DIVER.

Close Modern Warfare 2 and check for updates

Close Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and have it check for updates. Here's how to do it based on your platform:

  • For console players, this is as simple as pressing the Start or Menu button and selecting Check for Updates.
  • For PC, players will want to check for updates in the usual fashion, dependent on the store they purchased it from.
  • players can click the gear icon and Check for Updates.
  • Steam is usually pretty good about updates, but they can be checked by right-clicking the title, selecting Properties, and Updates.

Verify the integrity of the files

While CoD Modern Warfare 2 might be up to date, there might be an issue with the files. A quick scan and repair should resolve this. The process for accomplishing this is similar to checking for updates, but instead of checking for updates, players will want to select one of the following options: Verify Integrity of Game FilesScan and Repair, or Verify and Repair.


If both of the above steps have been completed and the issue persists, give everything a fresh reboot to get its wits about it. While this is normally the first step in many troubleshooting measures, it falls to third here due to the nature of the error code.
