Much to the chagrin of players, Warzone 2’s social menu doesn’t update the list of recent players, making it difficult for users to team up with new friends.

The social menu in Warzone 2 is self-explanatory and easy to navigate. At the top of the screen, users can click the Recents tab to find everyone they’ve played with in recent games.

Loading the “Recent Lobby” screen usually allows players to scroll and add fellow Warzone fans as friends or invite them to a new match.

However, lately some have noticed that the system refuses to work as intended.

The week before Christmas, Reddit user FPS_Shooter drew attention to a Modern Warfare II issue where the players in their “recent lobbies, parties, squads, players” were all listed as “last encountered 3 days ago”.

Fellow users chimed in to say they had encountered the same bug. One person said their Recents tab hadn’t received an update for six days in that time.

“This is quite frustrating, especially when you’re trying to find new players to play with,” the original poster noted in one of their replies.

After two weeks, more Warzone 2 players have encountered the exact same hiccup with the Recent Players tab. Euphoric-Blue-59 started a Reddit thread on January 2, 2023 with the following title: “My ‘recents’ are two weeks old.”

FPS_Shooter reappeared in this thread saying their tab hadn’t been updated in 18 days. Others chimed in to share similar comments, with one person claiming the issue originally surfaced when Reloaded launched.

This isn’t the first Social Menu issue to plague Warzone 2. At launch, a Social Menu bug prevented players from inviting friends.

While that particular glitch got a quick fix, there’s no word on when a Recent Players patch will arrive.
