Weather war zone 2.0 Y modern warfare 2 both share a client launcher, the two games exist independently of each other. As a free-to-play title, players do not need to own modern warfare 2or any other Obligations product to play.

I restarted the game and my PC, but that didn’t help.”
Several similar threads have popped up on the game’s subreddit complaining about the same issue, and no one seems to have found a fix yet, as they have for a number of other bugs in the game, many of which have now been fixed.
