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

The Error Code Niamey-Lee in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 only happens on PlayStation 5 consoles and the PC. It started occurring following the 1.003.000 MW2 update on October 26th. 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 2 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 MW2!
