It’s an error that has plagued Call of Duty: Warzone since almost the beginning. The dreaded 6068 crash bug. This pernicious little day-ruiner is a fickle issue to track down, but it is solvable.
If you want to figure out how to tackle this issue, read our guide below to help you fix a Warzone 6068 error.
Before We Begin
As always, the best way to track down any difficult to solve issue with a PC game is to perform a little IT 101 on it to start. Usually, this means turning your system off and on again, but for video games, it’s a little more complicated.
Here’s a list of things to try initially to help solve the issue:
- Make sure you don’t have any updates lingering for Windows.
- Update your graphics drivers to the latest version.
- Make sure you update the Blizzard launcher so that it’s running the most current version of the app.
- Set the game to run in borderless windowed mode (You won’t believe how many problems this ends up solving).
Additionally, if you don’t mind taking a bit of a hit to your graphics, you might consider:
- Dropping your graphics settings
- Capping the framerate to 60 fps.
- Reducing the number of post-process effects active during play.
But, come on. This is PC gaming we’re talking about here. We don’t actually expect you to do any of those things. We just wanted to include the information for completion’s sake.
Interestingly, as we researched this bug, we noticed a theme pop up over and over again. Unfortunately, the conclusion we’ve drawn from these revelations is probably something some of our more hardcore PC gaming audience won’t want to hear. It seems like COD: Warzone doesn’t play nice with overclocking.
That’s right. The number of posts we saw where PC players running overclocked machines reported the issue actually made us think for a second that Infinity Ward and Activision has it out for the hardcore gaming scene. It seems unlikely, but seriously, it does appear to affect overclocked machines at a much higher frequency than standard PC builds.
How to Fix a Warzone Dev Error 6068
If you tried all of the above and are still getting this crash bug, here is the most reliable solution we’ve found so far:
- Head to the advanced options file located at: Documents\Call of Duty Modern Warfare\players\adv_options.ini
- Search for the VideoMemoryScale
- Set the value to 5.
Our research indicates that the 6068 error is actually related to a VRAM calculation error, and by reducing the scale of the video memory, it solves the miscalculation and stops the bug from popping up.
If this solution sounds familiar, that’s because we’ve written about a similar VRAM issue with COD: Warzone. Check out our guide to how to manage VRAM Usage in Activision’s epic shooter, then get back on the battlefield and score some headshots. Tell ‘em Sidegamer sent ya.
