Warzone “Whitelist” error appears and players are confused

A Call of Duty: Warzone “White List” error has started to appear and players are very confused. With concerns already rampant about whitelisted hackers and streamers, the new bug in the game is generating some intrigue.

Several Warzone players were unable to log into the game the week of the mid-season update. When trying to log in, they crash and run into a new error: “Whitelist Failed”.

In the past, whitelisting has been a hot topic as fans believe streamers are placed in groups that allow them to not get banned or get into easier lobbies. As such, it’s probably no surprise that this new bug is causing speculation.

While some take this issue as proof that broadcaster whitelists exist, others have dismissed that narrative.

Warzone “Whitelist Error” confuses players trying to log in

As you can see from the embedded tweet, the “Whitelist Failed” error is not allowing players to log into Warzone. Its specific code is XX-1036F.

At answers, several users suggested that this new problem is evidence of previous “conspiracy theories” around streaming privileges. One user responded emphatically with “Broadcast Whitelist Confirmed” (to the delight of 44 Twitter Likes), while another asked if this means “badboybeamin was right.”

That question refers to a popular (and divisive) hack accuser, who has argued that streamers cheat and are protected by Activision through whitelisting. However, others, like the respectable CharlieIntel, have suggested that this bug is not related to those suspicions.

In CI’s tweet, it is explained that all Warzone players are actually whitelisted “to be allowed on the servers.” This issue therefore appears to be a bug that caused players from certain regions to be removed from said rosters.

So far, the region most affected by the bug appears to be Europe. Also, it does not appear that any North American accounts have been affected.

The news of universal whitelisting is news to players, but many are aware that there is a system in place to whitelist players participating in private tournaments (such as the Warzone World Series). Regardless, fans seem to be monitoring this new bug with keen eyes and we’ll keep an eye out for any updates.
