How to Fix Bravo 433 Destructive Gator error code

You will find that the root of this particular issue is a problem with the connection between you and the game’s servers.

The majority of the time, it is likely that the Call of Duty servers themselves are experiencing some issues, but it never hurts to reset your own connection first to see if that fixes the issue.

If resetting your connection does not solve this problem, then it is the game’s servers themselves that are having trouble and not allowing players to connect to the game. With the launch of Season 3 just having taken place, there will be a great deal of strain on the servers from the increased number of players trying to play and launching the update itself.

Your best bet, in this case, is to quit your game and wait a little bit before trying to connect again, as hopefully, by this time, there will not be as much strain on the servers, and you will be able to connect without any trouble.

As a quick summary:

  1. Reset your connection.
  2. If resetting your connection doesn’t work, quit the game.
  3. Wait for a time where fewer players are likely to be online like mid-day and start the game up again.

It is always frustrating when a problem like this surfaces at the beginning of a new season, as the players affected are no doubt excited to try out all of the new things coming to the game, like the Season 3 Battle Pass and massive weapon balancing.

However, these solutions listed above are your best bet to get past this issue and get started on unlocking weapons in zombies, thanks to a whole new set of challenges added to Black Ops Cold War by Treyarch.
