How To Fix Hunt Showdown Error 0x30001

Facing the Error 0x30001? Learn effective methods like Verifying Game Files and Opening Ports to get Hunt Showdown back on its feet.

Encountering the 0x30001 Error Code, known as the Crycloud Error, while playing Hunt Showdown can be frustrating, especially when on the hunt alone or with a group. Recently, a significant number of players reported this bug online.

This error seems closely tied to a server cap imposed by the game developers to maintain stability and prevent overload. Essentially, it’s a safeguard to ensure optimal server performance. However, issues with your internet connection, such as blocked ports or interference from antivirus software, might also trigger this error

The error message reads: “You were unable to connect to the backend server. Error Code 0x30001”

Before delving into the detailed solutions, I recommend attempting these simple fixes initially:

Key Highlights

To resolve Error 0x30001, you can try the following methods:

  1. Verify Game Files via Steam.
  2. Allow the Game through the Windows Firewall.
  3. Unblock Required Ports.
  4. Disable 3rd-Party Overlays.

Verify The Integrity Of Files On Steam

Verifying the integrity of game files is a crucial tool that helps ensure your game files are intact and redownload them if they aren’t. It does this by comparing the game files installed on your system and the official versions stored on the Steam servers.

If discrepancies or missing files are detected, the tool automatically replaces or repairs them, resolving issues like the 0x30001 Error. So, I recommend doing this first to ensure the game has all the essentials to function properly.

Allow Game Through Windows Firewall

Firewalls or Antivirus Solutions are notorious for flagging legitimate applications as malware or threats. This happens frequently and can block the application from accessing the Internet entirely. So, to combat this, I suggest allowing Hunt: Showdown access through your Firewall.

This will allow the game to establish stable connections with the servers, potentially resolving the issue. Further, this can especially be helpful if the problem is related to blocked network ports.

Open Required Ports

All data communication on the Internet takes place through the use of ports. You can think of them as mailboxes where your data packets get delivered. But, as many players also found, these ports can sometimes get blocked, blocking all communication.

This can happen at the ISP or your Router Level. Generally, however, this happens from your ISP (Internet Service Provider), as they hold more control over your network traffic. So, to fix the Error 0x30001 in Hunt Showdown, you should try contacting your provider to unblock the required UDP and TCP ports. 

Disable Third-Party Overlays

Overlays are a convenient feature for accessing various community and in-game functions, but they can sometimes interfere with the smooth operation of games. While this is a rare occurrence in network-related issues, the chances are still there.

Some notable offenders for causing connectivity issues like these are the Steam Overlay and Shadowplay. So, I highly recommend disabling any of these overlays if active. Once done, check if the problem persists. If it does, you have found the culprit. However, if not, you can just as easily enable them again.

My Thoughts

The 0x30001 Error can be annoying to face, leaving you hanging and not offering much support. However, while the issue has garnered extensive discussions across forums such as Reddit, Steam, and Nvidia, it hasn’t been widespread.

This is because most times the issue does happen from the user side. However, sometimes, the servers are to blame as well. They can sometimes go down for maintenance, or when coming back online, introduce a player cap to increase stability.

In the second case, the Official Hunt Showdown Twitter handle quickly acknowledges the problem. Subsequently, quick action is taken by the developers to fix the problem, which is great to see, in my opinion.

However, as I mentioned, the issue mostly comes from the player’s end. So, if that is the case for you as well, I am sure the methods outlined in this guide will prove helpful.

But, if not, I suggest contacting the Hunt: Showdown Support Team for situational solutions.
