Do you have problem with the PunkBuster? Here is the solution!

If you met a problem when you joined to a server which has a PunkBuster and you have been kicked due to

RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed

Then the solution is the following:

  1. Download the PunkBuster, pb folder from here.
  2. Go to the CoD folder and rename the current pb folder to e.g. pb1
  3. Extract the whole pb folder what you downloaded and copy paste into the Call of Duty folder to the same place where the previous one was
  4. Run the pbsvc.exe, a black window is going to pop up and wait until you get the message that you are done and you can close the window
  5. Go back to the server and enjoy the game, have fun 🙂 If you still have an issue please send us a message either here or on Facebook.
