Having trouble downloading the new Overwatch map on PS3?


Installing DLC for some will be a simple process of click install and then you play it with no hicups what so ever. Some of us however are plagued with consoles or network connections which find it a real struggle, you could have installed and downloaded the new map 5 times yet for some reason it is still being read as “Missing” or “Damaged”.

Those experiencing problems will likely be faced with the following error message: “DLC content is required. Required map Overwatch is missing or damaged. Gain access by purchasing a subscription or map pack.”

Obviously the latter option of purchasing the map pack is not yet available for PlayStation 3 users yet but here are some ways you can try to fix the problem:

  • Make sure that your copy of Modern Warfare 3 is updated to version 1.11.
  • Restart your PlayStation before and after you have installed the map.
  • If once you press download you are presented with about 7 different downloads for Overwatch, click the one right at the bottom rather than the one at the top (This is the fix that worked for me)

We hope this helps!

    “you are presented with about 7 different downloads for Overwatch, click the one right at the bottom rather than the one at the top (This is the fix that worked for me)”
    or just download the file that has the same BLES code as your copy of the game (It’ll be on the spine of the game case and the disc)

    Hi Oceanic, I have tried everything and still no go.. any other ideas I can try?

      Whats the BLES code on your MW3 disc? Have you downloaded the file that matches that BLES code (From the MW3 DLC in your “View downloads” list on the store)? Are you using the Elite playlist (The maps will only show up there for now)? Try setting up a private match and select Overwatch as the map, does that work?
