If you haven’t tried closing down the Vanguard application and opening it again, this should be your first port of call in fixing the Kadena – Keesler error.

But, if you’ve already tried this or it didn’t work for you, there are a few more options that are known to get rid of the error.

Completely restart your Xbox or PlayStation

The next solution you should try is completely shutting down your Xbox or PlayStation, allowing it to do a power cycle.

  • Here’s how to power cycle your Xbox consoles:
    1. Hold the Power Button until the Xbox completely turns off
    2. Remove the power cable from the Xbox
    3. Wait around 20 seconds and put the cable back in
    4. Turn your Xbox back on
  • How to power cycle a PS4 or PS5:
    1. Hold the PlayStation Power Button until the console beeps twice
    2. Let the PlayStation completely shut down
    3. Remove the power cable from the PlayStation
    4. Wait around 20 seconds and put the cable back in

  2. Wait around 20 seconds
  3. Switch the router back on and wait for it to completly boot up again

Warzone leak claims Iron Trials will come to Rebirth Island in Season 2

Warzone players have been desperate for Iron Trials to return and if a leak is to be believed, the mode will hit Rebirth Island in Season 2.

Warzone Rebirth Island Iron Trials

Iron Trials quickly became a fan-favorite Warzone mode, and a dataminer claims to have found evidence that the mode will arrive in Rebirth Island in Season 2.

Iron Trials is a more competitive version of Warzone, with a much higher time-to-kill, tougher Gulag, more expensive Buy Stations, and no free loadout drops. Many preferred the mode and wished that it remained a permanent fixture.

Unfortunately, we haven’t seen it since before the Warzone Pacific Season 1 update, but a new leak claims that it will return with a twist. According to a dataminer, Iron Trials is set to return on Rebirth Island in Season 2.

Call of Duty dataminer ‘Reality’ recently leaked that a Season 2 event will include Bomber planes, Redeploy Balloons, secret bunkers, and gas weapons. Now, following Warzone’s February 3 update that reverted the loadout drop delay, they claim to have discovered even more about Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Reality posted an image featuring strings that were reportedly added to Warzone’s game files after the update, revealing items such as a “Portable Buy Station,” a ton of new challenges, and a description of the Bomber.

But what players will be most interested to see is that one of the lines reads: “MP_CHYRON/ATLANTIS_IRON_TRIALS”: Rebirth Iron Trials.

Rebirth Island Iron Trials has also been mentioned by another leaker, TheGhostOfHope, who is known to have been reliable in the past.

This could mean that the fan-favorite Iron Trials game mode is making its way to Warzone’s smaller map in Season 2. But how this mode would play out remains to be seen; it could have Rebirth’s Resurgence mechanics or be more like the traditional battle royale.

Of course, this is just a leak for now. There’s no guarantee that Rebirth Island Iron Trials will arrive in Warzone Season 2 – or at all for that matter. Equippable helmets have been found in the game files before, as well as a version of the G3 Assault Rifle – and neither have arrived in the game.

But with Iron Trials’ popularity, it will likely return to the game in one form or another. Raven Software and Sledgehammer should be revealing the Season 2 roadmap soon, so we’ll know much more about the upcoming content over the next couple of weeks.

Warzone devs explain why they keep removing your favorite mode in playlist updates

Raven Software have finally explained why they remove popular Warzone game modes in weekly playlist updates.

Warzone players have been upset that the weekly playlist updates are constantly removing their favorite game modes, and the developers have finally explained the reason behind these changes.

When you hop into a game of Warzone, you can try out several different game modes like Rebirth Resurgence and Vanguard Plunder, with each one providing a unique combat experience for players to enjoy.

However, as popular as some of these modes are, they’re sometimes missing from the game when the developers bring a new weekly playlist update, much to the frustration of Warzone players.

Now, Raven Software have explained the reason behind these changes.

The Warzone developers addressed this issue in a blog post, going over the process of putting together the weekly playlist, and they highlighted three main areas of focus: motivation, engagement, and squad sizes.

When discussing the motivation aspect, they explained that they introduce different modes so that they can satisfy the largest amount of players and then check to see which ones are gaining the most popularity.

This helps Raven Software decide which modes to keep or bring back in future updates. They also stated that while they keep some modes pretty much the same, they experiment with different party sizes to find the best fit for each one.

So, the reason they remove certain game modes is to see how many players will call for their return to the weekly playlists, helping the developers assess their overall popularity.

The blog post also provides an outline of Raven Software’s plans for Warzone Pacific Season 2, which include adding brand-new game modes along with weekly updates which could feature additions like Iron Trials.

As frustrating as it can be to see your favorite game mode missing from the game, it’s reassuring to know that the developers are always listening to player feedback so they can improve weekly playlists.

Activision confirms Infinity Ward leading CoD 2022 & Warzone 2 development

A report from Activision has confirmed that the iconic Infinity Ward studio will be leading the development of CoD 2022 & Warzone 2.

Infinity Ward CoD 2022 Warzone 2

In a statement on February 3, Activision confirmed that the highly-anticipated CoD 2022 and Warzone 2 will be developed by Infinity Ward.

Infinity Ward have a long and storied history with the Call of Duty franchise after developing the legendary Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and it seems like they’re back for another iteration in 2022.

Infinity Ward last worked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2019. Modern Warfare was a commercial success and Activision are looking to produce similar results with CoD 2022 after Vanguard has failed to meet sales expectations.

CoD 2022 solider with weapon

A recent Business Wire report of Activision’s 2021 financial results have revealed that Vanguard failed to meet expectations as far as sales go, “Call of Duty net bookings on console and PC declined year-over-year in the fourth quarter, reflecting lower premium sales for Call of Duty: Vanguard”.

This explains Activision’s decision to opt for Infinity Ward as the lead developer for both CoD 2022 and Warzone 2. The project is being touted as a highly ambitious focus on both premium offerings and free-to-play content with Warzone 2.

Long-time Call of Duty fans will be happy to see the future of the franchise in safe hands. 2022 is shaping up to be a vital year for Call of Duty and fans won’t have to wait much longer for new and exciting content.

This announcement doesn’t necessarily mean that the release window for these games has been moved up. Once we have more details concerning CoD 2022 and Warzone 2022 we’ll be sure to share that with you.
