Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) – How to solve friend request stuck problem

Players can send friend requests and add their known contacts through the simple usage of the Activision account. However, the feature is off to a rough start for quite a few users who are being unable to add friends in this method.

While there is no specific reason as to why this is happening and the developers are also yet to comment on this, there are a few solutions that you can implement which may sort out your troubles.

Do keep in mind that these are not foolproof so they may work for some people and not for others. 

  • Start over with the game
  • Get the Call of Duty Companion app setup on your phone and you can try to have your friends join from there
  • Move to ‘Settings’ and then ‘Account and Network’ to select ‘Activison Account’
  • This is the place from where your friends can now join up with you and the friend requests feature should also be live now
  • You will also receive a notification on your phone now, whenever a friend request comes in and you can also make friends from here too
  • With the friends request live now, there should not be any other problems restricting you from building your group

These solutions have been given by players themselves, with Activision having not yet released any official comments. Therefore, you should keep your patience and wait a few more days to see what results come out.

This is because the solutions can feel a bit tedious, repeating them every time whenever a new friend wants to join you in playing Modern Warfare 2 (MW2). The final step is, of course, to connect with Activision Support through their social media channels or the feature present in your account itself to give them a detailed breakdown of the issues you are going through.

Thus, that is all the information you will need to solve the friend request issue as of this moment. There will be more to tell when there is an official response but till then, do use these methods which will surely enable you to set up groups and take down the enemies.
