Fix for “Error Code 887a0005" in Call of Duty: Black Ops — Cold War

  • I bought the game
  • I installed the game
  • I played first two missions
  • Got to the third mission, and that’s where the problem begins
I was greeted with this message every time I tried to start a mission
  • Reinstalled the system
  • Reinstalled the drivers
  • Reinstalled the game
  • Ran the “Scan and Repair” multiple times
  • Disabled “HAG” in Windows 10
  • Made sure RTX is disabled in the game — which it was because I have 1080ti which does not have ray-tracing support
  • Modified “Max FPS” settings in the game
  • Disabled “High Resolution” assets in the installer
If you forgot how it looks like, here it is again. It is now deeply etched in my brain after hours of trying to fix it.
  1. Go to your “GeForce Experience” panel
  2. Go to “Drivers” tab
  3. Click on the 3 dots menu button just on the right of “Check for updates” button
  4. Change drivers to “Studio Drivers”
  5. When the installer start, select “Clean install” and wait
  6. Reboot your PC
  7. ENJOY THE GAME YOU PAID FOR AND SPENT HOURS DEBUGGING!
