Why Am I Getting Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Party Errors?
There are a couple of reasons why you might be getting the “Failed to join party” 10 error. It could be that the party or lobby has glitched which is stopping you from being able to join your friends or any online game.
The COD Cold War game may have decided to bug out, or you have not got the correct game files installed for the game mode that you are trying to join.
Fix Unable To Join Party, Zombie Lobby Or Multiplayer Lobby in Cold War:
Try the methods below and after each step try launching the game and see if you can join your party or a lobby that you previously could not join.
1. Restart the game:
It may sound simple but in most cases, this actually resolves the issue that is stopping you from joining your friend’s party, or not being able to join a lobby in Cold War
2. Completely restart your PC or Console:
A simple method again but it might be an issue in Windows or your console that is causing the problem so a restart could help in getting rid of the error messages.
3. Ask everyone in the party you are trying to join to reboot their game:
If they are the host then it could have glitched everyone’s game which could be stopping you from being able to join them.
4. Get someone else to try hosting the game and party in Cold War:
If the host has a bad internet connection and it glitched out at some point this could have messed the party up which is why you are probably getting the “Unable to join party 10” error
5. Ensure you have the correct game files installed for the game you are trying to join
6. Check the Call Of Duty Cold War services:
