In this guide, we will be taking a look at how to fix the Modern Warfare 2 CE-108255-1 error on PS5. This error can happen on startup, or when you are in the middle of a team death match. So it’s very frustrating if you are about to win the round and COD MW2 is crashing on your PS5 with a message saying “A problem occurred in the following app” and a CE1082551 error code.

I have been anticipating the release of the latest Modern Warfare game, as I do every year with the Call of Duty games. However, the fun is short-lived if the game is crashing on your PS5 to your home screen then you get an error and the ce-108255-1 error code!

Why am I getting a CE-108255-1 PS5 error in MW2?

There can be many reasons why you are getting the COD MW2 CE-108255-1 error on your PlayStation console when trying to launch the game. It could be caused by one of the game files becoming corrupted or missing on your PlayStation 5, which could have happened during an update or installation.

This error is usually an issue with the game and not your console. And this error has been common in other games such as Fifa 22 and GTA V. You may see a message such as “An error occurred in the application” or “A problem occurred in the following app”.
