Everyone and their mother is trying to jump into Call of Duty: Warzone. The newest battle royale release is a hot commodity, but that popularity brings some problems to the surface. In particular, players are finding that their Warzone installation progress is stuck at 0%. Is the installation stalled for good, or is there a way to get it to start back up again? As it so happens, the solution may be easier than you think.
Call of Duty: Warzone | Installation progress stuck at 0%
If your Call of Duty: Warzone installation progress is stuck at zero, it’s almost certainly due to high network traffic. Plenty of players are trying to download the game, which is why your installation progress is 0. Your best bet is to simply wait it out.
With that said, there are some other reasons why your installation may get stuck at zero percent. PlayStation 4 users in particular have the option to start Warzone after a certain amount of the game has been downloaded. However, launching the game before the entire download is complete will result in installation progress stalling at zero percent.
The solution is to first close Warzone on your PS4, then to head to the system’s Notifications area. You’ll likely find that the rest of the game’s data is still trying to download — look for listings that include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. With Warzone running, it seems the download for the rest of the game cannot be started, which is why the Warzone installation appears to stop making progress.
If the same problem happens on Xbox One, first close Warzone, then restart your console. The rest of the download should start once the system is back up and running. Wait for it to complete before starting Warzone again.
By and large, the Call of Duty: Warzone installation progress 0 issue is tied to high network traffic. This problem should be resolved as soon as other users finish their download of the game. If you’ve tried to start the software on PS4 before the full download was complete, simply close the game and try again.
