Connection Issues

There are multiple stages where a disconnection may occur, these may include:

  • Unable to login
  • Unable to download or update
  • Receiving an error code
  • Unable to matchmake or connect to matches
  • Unable to join other parties 

If you're having trouble with your connection, please try out the methods below:

  • Method 1:

Use a wired connection

Direct connections have always been the strongest & stable method. Using wi-fi may lead to occasional disconnection and result in packet loss, connection problems, or higher latency or ping. Connect directly to your modem or router via ethernet cable.


  • Method 2:

Disable your firewalls

Sometimes firewalls can prevent software from fully functioning.

NB:  If the connection issue is resolved after disabling your firewall, make sure to manually apply it to the filter.

  1. Click on Start.
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on System and Security.
  4. Click on Windows Firewall.
  5. Click on Turn Windows Firewall on or off (You might need to provide the Administrator password at this step)
  6. Under each Network location, select the Turn off Windows Firewall option
  7. (Optional) Uninstall any other firewalls.
  • Method 3:

Switch Domain Name Systems (DNS)

Adjusting your DNS can improve connectivity and performance. There are two recommended DNS services. Below are the followings links with instructions on how to change your DNS:

- GoogleDNS

- CloudflareDNS
