Warzone Season 2 Keeps Crashing/Freezing- What’s the Issue?
Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the most played battle royale games in the world. The game offers really exciting gameplay but the players are left sour when they face certain issues. One of the most annoying issues in Warzone is when the game crashes/freezes whenever you do something.
In Season 1, there was an issue where the game froze and crashed when you slide towards a Buy Station. This bug is still present in Warfare Season 2 but the game is now also crashing with the ground loot. This makes it pretty tough to stay alive at the start.

There is no specific reason why the issue is particularly occurring on Xbox more as the problem lies at the developer’s end. Whenever a major update is rolled out, such issues become more common.

You can try removing the random vehicle customization from the paint, music, and horn. After that, put a single painting or none, and check if the issue is resolved.
I had the same problem. To get me to play the game, I removed the random vehicle customization from the paint, music, and horn. And I put a single painting or none and with that I could play.

4. Turn off Texture Stream
Another fix is to turn off the Texture Stream from the lobby. After that, hard reset your console. When it turns on, make sure the Texture Stream is still off. Now check if the issue is gone.
When in your lobby, turn off the texture stream and then hard reset your console. When you go back to your lobby, make sure it is still off. This worked for me.
