What Is The Error Code 48 Warzone?
It's not quite confirmed what Error Code 48 is in Warzone. However, the text has given us some slight clues, and it's believed to be a mix-up between your console/PC and the game itself, with a recent update not having been completed.

How To Fix Error Code 48 Warzone
There are multiple ways of fixing the Error Code 48. Some much less drastic than others.
1 - Go Offline
The simplest and efficient way of fixing the Warzone Error Code 48 is by going offline. By going to your games settings or even those of your console or PC and selecting "go offline", this should abort any attempted connection and once turned back on, you should be able to either play or complete an update.
2 - Check For Updates
Should the problem persist, it's your next move should be to check your hardware for any updates to Warzone or Modern Warfare. Scanning for updates on your platform should bring up the necessary download which can then be completed.
3 - Restart Console/PC
The good old "turn on and off" also works, sometimes. Completely shutting down your console or PC is the best method, preferably by the mains as this allows for the system to be completely refreshed when you plug it back in. Here, your console will scan for updates automatically that will prevent the Error Code 48 from appearing in Warzone.
4 - Uninstall and Reinstall Warzone (Last Resort)
Nobody wants to do this, what with the colossal reinstallation file size, but sometimes this is your last resort. If the game and your console or PC continue to fail to establish a connection resulting in Error Code 48, your last option is to delete the game completely and redownload it. This will ensure that the most recent version of the game is added to your system, although your squad will probably be in bed by the time you are back.
The Error Code 48 is one of the very few interruptions that continues to plague Warzone, with previous errors having been fixed and patched. However, with this error often linking to external hardware, it's unlikely to be going away soon. Let's just hope steps 1-3 help, before having to reinstall the game every night.
