The Clark Monterey error in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 occurs due to Call of Duty's cross-play feature.
Some players have successfully resolved the issue by disabling cross-play but it is not a consistent fix.
A hotfix/patch should be available soon to revolve the issue for affected players.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 has unique error codes that are related to specific issues that you may be facing. One of the most notorious error codes that have popped up in Season 3 is ‘Clark Monterey’. Players have figured out that the issue is related to cross-play and some players have been able to fix the issue by disabling the feature. But PC players are stuck with the error as there is no way to disable crossplay on the platform. Until Activision issues a fix, only Xbox and Playstation gamers can work around the issue.

Before you disable cross-play, do note that you will not be able to play with your friends who are on other platforms. Try restarting your game or console to see if the issue is fixed before tinkering with your cross-play settings.

You will see an option to toggle cross-play in the Account and Network section, which will allow you to turn the feature on or off whenever you want.
