How to Fix MW2 Travis-Rilea Error Code

What a bizarre error code name.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 may be the newest game in the series, but that doesn’t mean it’s without its bugs and technical issues. From crashes to framerate drops, you’re bound to find just about anything when loading up the game for a few matches. One such error that many seem to run into has several fixes, though no individual fix is guaranteed. Here’s how to fix the Travis-Rilea error code in COD: MW2.

What is the Travis-Rilea Error in MW2?

While Travis-Rilea may be a confusing name on its own, the cause of this error code is quite simple. It will show up whenever there’s an issue with the connection between your system and the game’s servers. This could happen possibly because of the servers running into issues, or because your internet connection isn’t holding up.

Upon seeing this code, the first thing that should be done is to head over to the social media channels for Call of Duty, Infinity Ward, and any applicable support places. If there’s an issue on the team’s end, they’ll likely have posted about it. If they have, the only solution is to wait until they post again, saying the issues have subsided.

If there isn’t a post, though, it likely means it’s an issue related to your network connection and you’ll need to do some troubleshooting. To kick things off, give your system a quick restart to see if it booted up poorly or something like that. If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to give your router a restart and see if that’s possibly causing problems. Ideally, you should do this every few weeks anyways to ensure it won’t run into problems at the worst of times. If that fails, setting your NAT type to open can potentially fix things. The method to do so will differ depending on your preferred platform.

If at all possible, we also would suggest changing your network connection to wired/ethernet instead of WiFi as this will make your connection far more stable. This will have added benefits elsewhere, but could also severely reduce the error code’s frequency.

The last thing to give a go is to check your platform’s support page for outages (i.e. Checking @BlizzardCS on Twitter if you’re playing through Battle.net). It’s possible it could be a network-wide outage, and Call of Duty itself is unaffected.

If all this fails, you may just have to try again in a few hours. It’s possible it could be on your internet service provider’s end, and you may just need to wait for them to clear things up. You could even give them a call if you wish. Either way, hopefully, this helped to narrow things down.
