Due to its long wait, the newly launched COD Warzone 2.0 has swept the gaming community like a storm. However, like any other online game, Warzone 2.0 has faced some bugs, errors, and issues, especially regarding the social tab list not working correctly.

Recently, Activision Blizzard announced on their Twitter page that they made a fix to the social tab launch bug error after many complaints from players.

Unfortunately, if you are still getting the Social Error even after the fix, stay hassle-free, as you are not the only one facing this problem. In this guide, we have mentioned the best and tested-out steps to overcome this problem at once. So let’s begin the guide without further time wastage.

Social Tab Error Explained

Restricting players from accessing their friends‘ list, prevented from communicating in chats or forums in-game, being unable to see the live view of the leaderboards, and last but not least, they can’t see the game stats of other in-game friends.

How To Fix Social Tab Not Working In Warzone 2.0

Host Private Match (To Add And Play With Friends)

If you have not yet added your friends on Steam, Battle.net, Xbox, or Playstation, then these steps are for you:

Create Your Own Separate Channel

This method is going to be like creating your discord server. You can also make your channel open or closed by selecting those options from the settings menu.

  • First, you must enter the launch menu, shown as a tiny six-square dots figure in the main menu on the screen’s top and right sides. Click that option.
  • In the launch menu, on the top right of your screen, you will see a headset icon representing the channel feature. Click on that.

Check Internet connection

Check if your wifi connection is secure, fast, and reliable. Players often have poor net connections, resulting in frequent disconnections or errors, especially in online games like Warzone 2.0. A simple restart of your internet device should do the work.

Reboot Gaming Platform/Warzone 2.0

This method usually works most of the time. Restarting helps refresh your game data in case some client error (like this social tab one) occurs due to a lack of proper connection to the game servers. If it still doesn’t work, try restarting a few times and then move on to the following steps.

Crossplay Settings

In some instances, this has also fixed the social menu issue. Go to settings and disable and then enable the crossplay option again. Then restart your game, log in again and see if you can access the social tab and have a view on your friends’ list, etc.

Receive Friend Requests

As silly as this may sound, ask your friends to remove you from their friends list and add you back again. This step also does the trick usually.

Alternative Solutions

Consequently, even after performing all of the mentioned solution-based steps, if you are still getting the Social Error, we highly recommend you contact the live support team of COD Warzone 2.0. They will further assist you in this regard by first issuing a troubleshooting problem.

Secondly, the social tab error may still be occurring due to servers being down for maintenance or patch updates, so keep checking Warzone 2.0’s active social media pages, like Twitter, along with the game forums or Reddit pages, to stay up-to-date with the latest news.

Final Remarks

In conclusion, this brings us to the end of our guide. We hope these steps will help you resolve the social tab list error, and you can finally join and play with your friends at ease. Do give feedback in the comments section.

By carrying out all the methods mentioned above, you will now finally be able to access your friend list, check their live score stats, communicate in chats and forums and even have the up-to-date leaderboards in the game.
