The following are the solutions that you can try to fix this issue. Keep in mind that none of these things are guaranteed to work in any given case although there have been reports of many users benefitting from them since the issue started a few months ago.

  1. Force the game to re-update.

    -Once you’ve found the Call of Duty Modern Warfare folder, open it.
    -Delete all files within the folder except Blizzardbrowser, Data, and Main.
    -Restart the game by launching it from Battle.net client.
    -Once you get the error saying that the game is corrupt, proceed with the update option.

  2. Delete the Data folder.

    The other modified way to force the game to update itself is by deleting only the Data folder and leaving the rest of the folders and files intact. Here’s how:
    -Close Call of Duty Warzone game if you have it running.
    -Browse to your main Call of Duty Modern Warfare installation folder. The default is usually located in C:\Program Files (x86) but it can be different if you have a different installation path.
    -Once you’ve found the Call of Duty Modern Warfare folder, open it.
    -Delete the Data folder.
    -Restart the game by launching it from Battle.net client.
    -Once you get the error saying that the game is corrupt, proceed with the update option.
