Key Takeaways
  • Niamey Logan error happens because of a bug from the game side.
  • You can fix it by pressing Yes, but not without losing a few things.

How To Fix The Niamey Logan Error In MW3?

If you encounter this error screen after the title update, simply press ‘YES,’ and that would be it.

What’s happening is that this is a bug from the game side that does make you lose a few things but not your Rank.

So, once you accept the error, your weapons and progress will remain intact. However, you will lose your weapon load-outs, any active grave sites from a zombie match, and some game settings.  

So, even though you will be set back a little if you play the Zombie Mode, the silver lining is that you will still retain any unlockables, experience, and level points. So, even though it is understandably annoying, you will be fine.

My Thoughts

Everyone breathing with a copy has had this issue after the update, which is pretty tragic for a game that is already not that great, no puns intended. The devs have, however, acknowledged the problem, stating that the error is ‘Incorrect.’

But, the problem is that a minority has lost their progress completely. Seeing this, the community is asking for a better solution to the Niamey Logan error in MW3.

So, all in all, accepting the message has become a ‘Gacha Roll.’ You might be fine, and you might not be. But honestly, I would take those odds and just be done with it. With the way things are looking, chances are they aren’t going to fix it. So, hope for the best and bet on a restoration if things don’t go smoothly.
