No, really, that’s it.
What does “status: GOLDFLAKE” mean?
No one really knows. It’s one of the great mysteries of our age that will be debated by scholars throughout the centuries. What it refers to however is an issue whereby your system is put into a suspended mode while Call of Duty Warzine is running, which then creates the Status Goldflake error when you try to return to the game. The only way to avoid the error is to not put your system into a rest state while playing Warzone. Or to not play Call of Duty Warzone ever again – which is probably taking things a bit too far.
If you’re plagued by that other persistent error, the pesky 5476 error code, we have a way to fix that one too.
