How to Fix Modern Warfare 3 Error Code Niamey-Lee on PS5

The Error Code Niamey-Lee in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 only happens on PlayStation 5 consoles . It started occurring following the launch of the beta on October 6th, 2023. The message that comes with it says: “Your data is corrupt or didn’t download properly. You must reset your rank and unlocks to continue,” and it also asks players to confirm it by pressing yes. Naturally, this has many players worried. Not as much because of ranks, but because they don’t want to lose their unlocks, especially Modern Warfare 3 beta rewards. Worry not. Luckily, this will not happen. While the problem is being fixed by the developers, there’s a temporary workaround for it. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Press “Yes” when the Niamey-Lee error appears.
  2. Hit the “Settings” button.
  3. Head to the Settings tab.
  4. Access any setting or subcategory.
  5. Press the “Circle” button to leave the menu.

As the developers explain, “This will trigger a return to the correct menu” and you will be able to play the game again as normal. Hopefully, this will help you with your issues. Also, Infinity Ward confirmed that the Niamey-Lee Error on the PS5 will be fixed with the next update. Have fun playing COD MW3!

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
