DMZ Change Operators in Active Duty Slots Issue Fix

If you can’t select or switch your Active Duty Slots operators, you should know that this is currently a widespread issue. Call of Duty Warzone 2 Season 3 is now live, and one of the most exciting new features for DMZ is Active Duty Slots, which allow players to have four characters ready for deployment. However, a bug currently prevents them from changing operators and weapons in Active Duty Slots. Here’s how to fix this issue.

DMZ Can’t Change Operators in Active Duty Slots Issue Solution

Warzone 2 DMZ Season 3 introduces one of the largest changes to DMZ since its launch – Active Duty Operator Slots. “At the start of Season 03, every player will have three Active Duty Operator Slots, which equates to three separate Operators that have their own on-soldier items,” says the official blog post. “These items include your Backpack, Plate Carrier, Killstreaks, Self-Revive, and Gas Mask.”

On the surface, this feature is fairly simple. Before each deployment, you choose one of your Active Duty Operator slots, based on your needs for that mission. However, at the start of Season 3, many players simply can’t change and select an Active Duty Slot. What’s more, they also can’t edit their slots to change weapons, gear, skins and other details.

“I created my two additional operators for a total of three. Loaded in with one of my newly created ones, and now I cannot switch to another one, nor edit the current operator”, says Reddit user Federa1Farmer. “I’m stuck loading in with no weapons or armour at all. When I try to tap over to the “Active Duty” slot, the screen blinks and refuses to let me.”

Given that this is a core new mechanic and that the bug renders the game basically unplayable, it’s understandably frustrating. To the best of our knowledge, there are currently two solutions. The first one is to check if your key or weapon stash is full. If yes, then delete some keys/weapons. If this doesn’t help, then restarting your console/PC will most certainly do, as it is reported by many players as a solution for the issue.

      This worked for me….. delete temp profile data (in console/PC settings) agree to all the terms then as soon as you access DMZ – delete your weapons (I’ve left myself with 15).

      I had the same issue but figured it out. If you have quick resume set to on you have to remove that option. Once you unpin it to not quick resume it will work.

    Hey I am experiencing this issue as well. My stash is full 21/20. Whenever I try to access the weapon’s stash, it takes me back to the main screen. I cannot edit any missions or wespons. Ugh I am stuck! Cant change ops because its within the weapons section.
    Any help appreciated. I’ll try restarting but I turn my console off every time I finish, so yea I will say its not going to work.
