There’s no definite cause for error codes 2048 and 3136 in Modern Warfare. However, the issue most frequently occurs directly after an update is released. It seems to happen when the game version doesn’t match when it connects to the Call of Duty servers to fetch a player’s profile. This usually presents with the following message:

“You have been disconnected from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare servers. Please try again or visit for updates.”

This message isn’t a bad place to start troubleshooting. The first thing you should do is check the Modern Warfare status site to see if the servers are down. If they are, there’s the problem. If not, you’ll need to do some further troubleshooting.

The first thing to try is to make sure your Modern Warfare install is on the latest version. Sometimes the updates seem to get “stuck,” and you’ll need to coax them through with a manual check. If you are on the latest version, try restarting your console or PC and your router and modem entirely and relaunch the game.

If issues persist after trying the above, you can attempt a complete reinstall of the game. Modern Warfare is a pretty big download, so that’s the last resort. However, sometimes that’s the only thing that’ll fix persistent error code 2048 and 3136 popups.

If none of the above works, you’ll need to contact Activision support. No definite cause for these error codes has been released, so they can be tough to work through. However, support should be able to point you in the right direction when general fixes don’t do the trick.
