COD Black Ops Cold War- COPYING DATA FATAL ERROR 0*C000005 (0*0) N | Firebase Z Update FIX

Let’s admit we had all been waiting for Firebase Z. It is a free for all Zombies Map based on a research facility in Vietnam. However, after downloading the full update ,users had not been able to run the game at all. They would get an error COPYING DATA FATAL ERROR 0*C000005 (0*0) N at 30 seconds or less after startup or at times the moment you click on Zombies Mode, Multiplayer or Campaign. However, the issue is ongoing still now, lets see how we can possibly fix it.

COD Black Ops Cold War- COPYING DATA FATAL ERROR 0*C000005 (0*0) N | Firebase Z Update FIX

Apparently COD fans are going crazy over the game crashing after completing the Firebase Z update. There is however no official fix as of now. Looks like we would have to wait for a patch fix. But there are a few steps which we can do just to try and see if it works.

Scan and Repair the in game files :

The update most probably might contain a corrupted file for which the game does not start. Hence, repairing the in game files should be the first step we need to follow :

  • Launch Battle.net
  • On the left side , you need to select the game Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War
  • Below the Game Title you will find Options
  • Click on small drop down icon and select Scan and Repair
  • It will take a sometime since the game is very large.
  • Once done you can re launch the game

Re Install the game :

If the file verification does not work for you, I would suggest reinstalling the whole game.  Maybe the files do not sync with the new update and a fresh installation is required.

  • Start Battle.net
  • From the left panel select Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War
  • Under the Game Title you will find Options
  • Just click on the drop-down menu and select Uninstall
  • After the game is removed from your system just click on the Install button which should now appear when you select the game.
  • After installing it back, launch the game again and check.

Like I said before there is no official fix to this problem as of now. These steps are just so you can give it a try and see if it works for you. If it does not then you would probably need to wait for the developer’s to come up with a patch fix or any other official fixes. There are some other fixes that have worked for others. But since I have not tried it myself, I couldn’t comment on their legitimacy.
