To fix the Black Ops cold War “Not everyone in party has required content” error, players will want to:

  • Use “Quick Match” to find a lobby and then exit.
  • Failing the above, users will want to close the game and reopen it.
  • If this doesn’t worry, ensuring the latest patch has been installed.

The above should fix the occasions when the message incorrectly appears. However, if a user or someone in their party hasn’t fully installed the game or necessary content, this will need to be fixed by downloading the relevant parts.

For whatever reason, Black Ops Cold War can sometimes show this error message when the user has every available bit of content installed. That’s the campaign, multiplayer, zombies, and also Warzone. It’s just an annoying bug that pops up from time to time, even when playing solo.

Here’s hoping developer Treyarch Studios can roll out a permanent fix for this issue, sooner rather than later.
