However, Call of Duty: Warzone is perhaps in the worst state of them all. Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific launched last month and introduced the tropical Caldera map.

What is Whitelist Failure in Call of Duty?
Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific just accepted its mid-season update. Thus, came several needed fixes, lots of weapon buffs and nerfs, a new SMG and operator, and more. Also, it seems to have triggered a new bug that causes an error on the screen called Whitelist Failure error. Based on @charlieINTEL on Twitter, all players have to be whitelisted so that they are able to join servers. It shows players’ IP addresses have been banned inadvertently so preventing them from joining games and triggering this error.
The Call of Duty Whitelist Failure Error occurred for the first time after the Season 1 Update, and now again after the Season 1 Mid-Season Update. It prevents the players from starting Call of Duty: Warzone and thus ruins the day for a lot of players. The anti-cheat Ricochet was introduced for the first time in Season 1. It is why we believe that the bug is probably related to it. Due to the anti-cheat Ricochet is active, the players have to be whitelisted by the program to ensure that no cheaters enter the Call of Duty game. With the latest update, it seems that the players in various regions have been removed accidentally from these whitelists and thus can no longer join the servers. Due to this error, now lots of players are understandably worried that their accounts have been banned. Of course, this may occur, especially if you use the cheats. Fortunately, the Whitelist Failure Error is just a bug that prevents several players from being whitelisted.
