While other dev errors require a full reinstall, this particular problem doesn't cause a full game crash. The error comes about when players attempt to modify a launcher from Call of Duty Vanguard within the Gunsmith and with only four Vanguard launchers to choose from, it's surprisingly simple to evade this pesky error code.

How To Fix Warzone Dev Error 896

There's no absolute fix for dev error 896 but until Raven Software decides to address the problem with an update, the only way to avoid the error is by leaving Vanguard's launchers untouched in the Gunsmith. You won't be able to attach any camouflages or cosmetic items onto the launcher of choice but it will prevent the game from crashing.

The error has yet to make an appearance on the developer's Trello board which keeps track of any known Warzone issues, meaning a fix could be a while away. Until then, it's best to leave Vanguard's launchers alone.
