Did you just get home, open your Xbox, and load into COD Warzone? Were you disappointed when you got stuck at the “Searching for a match” screen? Well, you’re not alone as many Xbox players have recently encountered the same error. For instance, everytime they try and get into a lobby they are treated to a “searching for a match” screen. The devs haven’t said anything about this issue as of now. Although, one reason for this issue could be that your account has a shadowban on it. So, before we move on to the list of fixes we’re gonna have to make sure that your account isn’t shadowbanned. Let’s get into it:
Open the Activision website.
Login to your account
Try and unlink your Activision account from COD Warzone
If you’re unable to unlink your account, it probably means that your account has a shadowban on it and you’re gonna have to reach out to customer support.
If you use hacks, have an unusual k/d ratio, have a lot of reports against your account, are toxic to your teammates, then your account can easily get a shadowban. We highly criticize this behaviour as it ruins with the experience of other players. Anyways, we can move on to the fixes, if your account doesn’t have a shadowban.
How to fix COD Warzone stuck at “searching for a match” error on Xbox in 2022
Let’s jump straight into it, just follow along and hopefully by the end of the list you’ll be able to fix this error.
Update your game
The first step would be to ensure that you have the latest build of the game installed on your device. Here’s how you do it:
Navigate to “My apps and games”
Click on Warzone
If there are no updates available, you already have the latest build of the game installed and you can continue to the next method.
Enable your Crossplay settings
This error could occur if there are fewer players in the game. Enable Crossplay to avoid high matchmaking times. Crossplay opens up the possibility of playing in lobbies with Playstation and PC players and can drastically lower queue times.
