Call of Duty Modern Warfare is one of the most fun games out there to play with your friends. There are a wide variety of game modes available for you to play with your friends. Like many other online games out there, Call of Duty Modern Warfare has a lobby system in which you can invite your friends and play together with them.
The main menu in the game also has the friends tab, which basically shows the friends who are online at the given moment. Now, this is a very useful feature, but there is a catch. It might be that you just want to play alone and don’ want to get bugged. Maybe you don’t want your friends to know that you are online at the given moment. So how should you make yourself appear offline? Read on to find out.
How to Appear Offline in Call of Duty Modern Warfare?
If you are wondering whether you can play without your friends knowing that you are playing the game, there is good news. The feature is indeed available in the game, but you might need to make a few changes in the game to be able to make yourself appear offline.
First of all, the one thing that should be noted is that even if you are set offline on PS4 or Xbox One, you will show as online in the game. Pretty weird, right? Well, the Activision account is to blame. Even though you have made yourself offline on the console, your status is still set to online on your Activision account. So the console setting doesn’t make a difference.
If you want to make yourself appear offline in the game, you need to change the activity status of your Activision account. Here are the steps to do the same:-
- Go to the Activision website and log in with your credentials.
- Once you enter your credentials and have logged in, go to the Account Management in the website
- Next up, you have to go to the Linked Accounts section
- In the Linked accounts section, search for Sign-On Visible option
- Toggle the Sign-On Visible option from on to off.
Once you toggle the sign-on visible option from on to off, you will easily be able to appear offline in the game. However, if you can’t find the Account Management section, that is owing to the fact that the Activision website gets a bit of revamping from time to time. In that case, you need to look for the Account Linking section directly. Once you find the Account Linking section, it should lead you directly to the Sign-On Visible option directly. Follow the steps given above from there on, and you will be able to turn off your online status.
Once you turn the status off, you won’t appear online. What if you want to turn it on again? Well, that’s pretty easy. All you need to do is go back to the setting again and turn the Sign-On Visible option to on.
That’s all you need to know about appearing offline in Call of Duty Modern Warfare. You can now easily play games without worrying about whether your friends can catch you online or not.
