How to Fix Fatal Black Ops 4 PC Error 897625509 That Stops Game From Loading

Some quick fixes.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but if you've been playing Activision's latest Call of Duty game via Battle.net there's a chance you've encountered an error that's preventing you from even starting Black Ops 4. If so here's a potential fix for Error code: 897625509.

Basically, Error Code: 897625509 appears to prevent players from even starting the game from Battle.net. During loading this error will show and the game will close. There's no explanation as to why this is happening other than it started happening after a recent update, but it's frustrated many PC players.

We reached out to Activision to find out about an official fix but in the meantime PC players have found success by using the "Scan and Repair" option within Battle.net. Simply go into Battle.net and select "Scan and Repair" from the Options drop down menu.

Other fixes include restarting your PC, updating Nvidia drivers, and for people with Razer software, ending Razer software was also mentioned. One player simply waited out the error for 30 minutes, though that seems like too much to ask.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is Activision's latest annual Call of Duty entry this time developed by Treyarch. Black Ops 4 does away with the traditional single-player mode in favor of an expanded Zombie mode, multiplayer class-system, and a new battle royale mode called Call of Duty: Blackout.
