When attempting to play Call of Duty: Warzone through the Battle.net launcher, some users have received the error message BLZBNTAGT00000960. Depending on the root cause of the error, a unique error message may accompany the numerical error code.
The issue may manifest itself during an update attempt via the launcher, or it may prevent you from running the game at all. In this article, we will show you how to fix the aforementioned error message using the many options accessible.
Manually Start Call of Duty: Warzone
In the event that you have the aforementioned issue, you should initially attempt starting the game from its installation folder. It has been determined that the problem notice only appears when using the Battle.net launcher, and that launching the game directly from the installation path resolves the issue.
So, head to the directory containing your Call of Duty: Warzone files. When you get there, instead of launching the game using the Modern Warfare Launcher, run the ModernWarfare.exe file.
Test to see if the game loads without any further problems after that. If that doesn’t work, you can try right-clicking the ModernWarfare file and selecting the Run as administrator option from the context menu.
Launch Battle.net in Admin Mode
It turns out that insufficient permissions for the launcher can also cause the issue in some circumstances. To put it simply, the game process will not be able to inherit the rights it needs to function correctly if this occurs.
If this happens, running Battle.net in administrator mode is the quickest and easiest way to fix the issue. Find Battle.net in the Start Menu and you’re good to go.
Either right-click the result and select “Run as administrator,” or use the shortcut “Run as administrator” (both of which are available). Check to see if that helps the situation.
Adapt the Game’s Location
Altering the game’s region in the Battle.net launcher is another option for fixing the aforementioned issue number. Players who have experienced this issue have said that switching the game’s area fixed the problem for them. Do this by following the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Warzone may be accessed from the Battle.net Launcher, which you should first fire up.
Step 2: A globe icon will appear; click on it. It’s located next to the Play button.
Step 3: Alter the region to something other than where you now are.
Step 4: Try to reproduce the error after making those changes.
Change the Drive Where Call of Duty Is Stored
It turns out that shifting the game to a different drive is yet another potential solution to the issue at hand. If the game is currently installed on disc D:, for instance, you will need to transfer it to drive C:.
Don’t worry, you can simply re-download the game to a new spot on your machine, or copy it and paste it to the new location. Once you’ve done that, the Battle.net launcher will let you know exactly where the game is stored on your computer, saving you from having to re-download it. Find out if the issue still exists after you’ve done that.
To Delete Battle.net Cache
We’ve already established that the issue at hand is largely due to the Battle.net launcher. Thus, it is possible that the Battle.net launcher’s temporary files are to blame. In essence, these files are meant to save broad patterns of user behaviour for analysis and improvement.
If clearing your system’s cache doesn’t fix the issue, you may need to reinstall your operating system. Here are the steps you should take to accomplish this:
Step 1: Before you do anything further, make sure the Battle.net launcher is entirely shut down. Additionally, launch Task Manager to check that no undesired Battle.net processes are operating in the background.
Step 2: Next, press the Windows key plus R to bring up the Run window.
Step 3: To access the programme files directory, type %ProgramData% into the Run box and press Enter.
Step 4: Then, remove the Battle.net folder after you find it.
Step 5: Check if the issue persists after opening the Battle.net launcher.
Battle.net has to be Reinstalled.
When all else fails, it’s possible that your Battle.net installation files are at blame for the problem. Multiple customers who encountered the aforementioned error code have also reported this.
As a result, uninstalling and reinstalling Battle.net should fix the issue at hand. Here are the steps you should take to accomplish this:
Step 1: The first step is to launch the Control Panel by looking for it in the Windows 10 Start Menu.
Step 2: Then, in the window that popped up, click the Uninstall a Programme link under Programs.
Step 3: When you get there, double-click Battle.net in the list of Programmes to remove it.
Step 4: Restart your computer after uninstalling it.
Step 5: After your computer has restarted, reinstall the launcher to see if the issue persists.
