What causes COD Warzone Dev Error 5573?
We found a number of possible reasons why COD Warzone is no longer playable and continues to show Dev Error 5573. Let’s discuss each of these causes individually.
Most cases of Call of Duty Warzone development errors are caused by new updates. If your PC or PS4 ran into a 5573 development error after installing an update for Warzone, the problem is likely with the latest version of the game. We understand that development error 5573 is a fatal exception. This means that once the trigger is triggered, the game will no longer be playable. So if this happens, you should stop playing and wait for the next round of updates to become available.
Outdated GPU drivers (PC).
As with other games, Warzone will crash or become unplayable if you experience problems with your graphics drivers. Updating your GPU drivers is really effortless and very easy. So you have no reason to do this, especially if you are having problems with your games.
Software needs to be updated.
In addition to updating your graphics card drivers, you also need to make sure that all games, applications, and Windows are running the latest versions.
If you work with PS4, all you have to do is confirm the dialog box to install any updates.
Updating is simply one of the most effective methods of eliminating errors and malfunctions.
Slow or intermittent connection.
Some Warzone players reportedly encountered Dev Error 5573 because their connection is slow or intermittent. While we can’t independently confirm this, some games can crash if they keep getting disconnected from a game server or if there isn’t enough bandwidth to allow smoother gameplay.
Corrupted game files.
Sometimes game files can get corrupted and cause problems. If that’s the cause of development error 5573, you may need to repair your PS4’s database or reinstall the game.

Coding problem with some DLC or content (PC).
There are some Warzone players who have found that restarting Shaders and using a different Operator Skin fixes Dev Error 5573. I didn’t personally fix my own dev error 5573 as a result. This workaround may be effective. You should give it a try if none of the solutions so far helped.
How to Fix COD Warzone Dev Error 5573
If you are trying to resolve Dev Error 5573 while playing Call of Duty Warzone, below are the possible solutions for you to try.
- Restart your PC or PS4.
A simple, but sometimes effective, way to troubleshoot Warzone is to restart your PC or console. If you’re still trying to resolve Dev Error 5573 make sure your first step is to reboot.
- Install updates.
Whether you’re on a PC or a PS4, it’s always a good idea to keep all of your games, applications, and the operating system updated at all times. Not only does this fix known bugs, but it can also be a great way to keep problems at bay.
Since Warzone won’t load and you won’t be able to connect to the game servers if it is out of date, you need to make sure that you keep the rest of your applications and the operating system up to date.
- Check for slow or intermittent connection problems.
If your internet connection is slow or keeps dropping, Warzone can crash or run into errors. Although the game works fine at a 5Mbps download speed, I strongly recommend that you play at a much faster speed to make sure the game is not running low on bandwidth or experiencing latency issues.
If you have WiFi, you can reduce the chances of disruption by connecting your computer or console directly to the router with a LAN cable.
- Rebuild PS4 database.
If you are on PS4 and have Dev Error 5573 while playing Warzone, you can continue troubleshooting by rebuilding the console’s database.
-Turn off the PS4 completely.
-Once the console is completely off, press and hold the power button on the PS4 front until you hear two beeps.
-Release the power button after the second beep, which should occur approximately seven seconds after the first beep.
-Connect your controller to the console with a USB cable, then press the PlayStation button.
– From the Safe Mode menu, select option 5 [ Rebuild Database] .
- Reinstall the game.
Deleting and reinstalling Warzone is a drastic solution and only needs to be done if none of the above solutions worked. The reason for this is that the game’s download file is very large. If you have a slow network it may take a few hours before you can play the game again.
Other possible workarounds: Restart the shader installation and use a different operator and skin
Some PC gamers at Warzone have noticed that restarting the shader installation and then switching to a different operator and skin fixed dev error 5573. If you’re on a PC and this guide didn’t fix your problem at all, go to the Game Settings menu and navigate to the Graphics tab, look for the Restart Shader Installation option and restart it.
Once you do this, close the game and start it again. Before joining multiplayer or going to the lobby, switch to a different operator and use a different skin. Then run the game again and see if that solves the problem.
