Goldflake is just one of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s error codes that indicate a bug is currently preventing you from playing the battle royale, so it does not necessarily mean that the servers are down. Those who spot this should first close and reopen the game’s application, as this solution has been known to wipe away the message entirely and get you back into all online modes.

On the off-chance that the message is being prompted due to a server outage, there are a number of ways players can check on the game’s overall online status. For instance, the Call of Duty Online Services webpage allows you to see which games and their features are dealing with connectivity issues. It even provides a link to your platform’s online services page to see if it is currently struggling with major server outages.

The Goldflake error can be rather annoying in Call of Duty’s Warzone 2.0, but thankfully, it typically boils down to a network issue. If you’re the only one experiencing these problems, and you don’t see any solutions, it might be a good idea to check out your internet connection. You may have to go to your router to reset it, restart your computer or console, or double-check that no one else on your network is using a lot of the bandwidth. A common issue could be someone else is downloading something in the background. I’ve had success with restarting my internet system to find a proper solution.

After you’ve cleared the Goldflake error, you should be able to jump back into Call of Duty Warzone 2.0, and continue your matches.
