You can fix the Custom Loadout locked error by restarting your game. While this may help solve it, it is no official fix for this problem.

  • Restart the game: Irrespective of whether you play the game on a PC or your console you can try this fix. Close your game and start it again. Make sure you properly close it and not just exit it. PC players can also use Task Manager to close the game. And close your client along with the game. Restarting Steam or Battle.net and then running the game from it can help resolve this issue.
  • Try leveling up: In order to unlock Custom Loadouts you first need to reach level 5 in the game. Now while most players have already done that. Leveling up further can help fix this issue. Even better would be to, restart the game after you reach the new level.
  • Check file integrity: Players should try scanning and repairing the game files. This error could happen if some of your game files have gotten corrupted. Once they are repaired restart the game and your custom loadouts should no longer be locked.
  • Restart your system: This is just a general fix, you can restart your PC or console to get your custom loadout to work again. After it starts try playing the game and check if you still get the error.

Lastly, if none of the above fixes work then wait for the developers to fix the issue. After they release some patch that resolves it, you should be able to use custom loadouts again.
