COD: Advanced Warfare PS4 crashing error persists

By Daniel Chubb - Nov 20, 2014

The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare crashing error some of you are experiencing isn’t going away, and today we received a few more reports about crashes and freezing with COD Advanced Warfare in Exo survival mode. In fact, one of the reports touches on the exact parent script variables error we saw during our review on PS4.

One of Product Reviews readers said, “I have just finished a 2-hour session on Exo mode in COD Advanced Warfare after the game crashed. It’s really upsetting to spend that much time playing and then get chucked out of the survival mode game with the error exceeded maximum number of parent script variables”.


This isn’t the only complaint we have had and you can see screenshots on this page taken from a PS4. We first noticed this crashing problem around 10 days ago, although this follows over 200 comments in relation to freezing within Advanced Warfare.

There’s been a game patch since our last two articles and it seems like this problem hasn’t been fixed to date. We are expecting the 1.07 update for COD Advanced Warfare today, which is live right now on PS3 and Xbox 360, but not PS4 at the time of writing.

Have you seen crashing within the Exo or multiplayer models for Advanced Warfare and if so, what platform are you playing on? This parent script variables error is very specific and we thought the developers would have addressed it by now.

Update: We have also seen a number of messages on Twitter from within the last few hours, which can be seen above and highlight that the crashes are not just related to PS4. The tweets above mention PS3 and we’ve seen reports about Xbox 360 issues as well.

    Mine is playable but after reaching 25 rounds and starting over with stronger enemy’s u play a few rounds then it does not start the next round u complete it and all of its Objectives but it just gets stuck like that so you are stuck in the map with no enemy’s and nothing to do except die.

    Same with me as well..can’t pick a class & if I try it crashes everytime

    • Travis

  • Ben

    Every time I click on my class with my shield with my camo on the game just stops working then I got to reset my ps3 plz fix this ?? It worked before I had update 1.04

  • wen

    This really sucks ,will be returning cod advance d warfare tomorrow ,and get back my $80 I paid for this garbage too much freezing my ps3 since I got this game ….its a good game ….but it sucks on my ps3

  • wen

    Using ps3 since latest update I can’t even get online to play

  • Connect

    I’m using P3, won’t let me choose class and cannot join, then I get kicked. Reset router, rebooted playstation with no success. This didn’t happen untill I updated the game. How come Playstation doesn’t admit the problem and give us estimated time of repair. If they keep hiding the issue, people will leave and buy Xbox.

      I’m getting the same lets me join a game but only spectate then I get kicked for inactivity. This happening on all platforms playstation and xbox

      • Ben

        Yeah same that’s what I get it just spectate but when I go to click on my class with my shield with my camo on the game just stops then I got to reset my ps3. The only way it works is if I take the camo off the shield. It worked fine b4 update 1.04 I hope they fix this I fort I was the only1

  • gedwards

    clear all custom made load outs, start game and choose one of the already made loadouts. thats all i can do

  • Bob

  • kevin

    my cod adv warfare on ps3 lets me into a game but will only let me spectate and will not allow me to choose a load out this just started after update cobragt88

  • Tom Obi Wan Maginnis

    I’m on the 360 and just had an Advanced Warfare update to do, now my game freezes everytime I get to the loadout screen at the start of a multiplayer match.

    • FV

      Same here on the 360!
      And fixed yet?

  • Branden

    I keep getting the script variables error on Exo, you can count on it coming at some point if you last enough levels, so it’s stopping me finding our how far I can go. Very annoying, major problem that needs fixing ASAP. I’m on PS4.
