Key Takeaways

You can try tackling this error by applying the fixes listed below:

  1. Sync your date and time. 
  2. Improving your network connection.
  3. Releasing and renewing your IP address.
  4. Flushing your DNS. 
  5. Whitelisting the Remnant game directory in your antivirus software. 
  6. Verifying your game files. 
  7. Port forwarding. 
Before we get started with the fixes, make sure to get some basic troubleshooting steps out of the way, like restarting your PC, updating your drivers, and updating your Windows.

Check PC Requirements

If your PC does not meet the minimum requirements set by Remnant, you are likely to face all sorts of errors, just like this one.

Compare the following minimum system requirements with your PC specs:

  • Remnant 2 works on Windows 10 (64-bit) and Windows 11 (64-bit). 
  • Intel Core i5-7600 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600.
  • 16 GB of RAM. 
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB

With these specs or above, you can rest assured that no errors will be caused because of your hardware.

Check Remnant Server Status

Players often spend a lot of time searching for and using fixes, which do not solve the errors because the servers are down.

Periodic server maintenance can cause connection errors in Remnant 2. So, to verify that the issue is not from your end, you can check Remnant’s server status

Renew Your IP & Change Your DNS

If you’re facing connection issues in Remannt 2, you should try configuring your PC’s networking. A popular solution to network errors is renewing your IP address or changing your DNS to a better alternative. 

Sometimes, your IP address or DNS prevents Remnant 2 from connecting to the game servers. Hence, I recommend that you try these fixes to resolve the issue. 

Check Your Date And Time

When you launch Remnant 2, its game files and its error logs take your PC’s date and time into account when modifying any files or keeping logs of a game session. If the date and time aren’t right, the game will simply fail to launch or present connection issues. 

A popular fix that also works for several other players is manually updating or syncing your date and time.

To do so, follow the steps given below.

  1. Press Win, and search for Settings. 
  2. Once you open settings, press Time & Language. 
  3. After that, press Sync Now.

This should fix the error. If it does not, move on to the next solution. 

Whitelist Your Game Directory 

Antivirus software often marks a game directory as harmful even though it is not. When this happens, you might face errors like connection errors. To avoid being in a situation like this, you can whitelist game directories on your antivirus.

Here’s our guide on how to whitelist the game directories in antivirus/defender that you can check out if you need any help.

Apart from fewer errors, whitelisting your game directory will help improve the game’s overall performance and help boot up the game faster. 

Verify Game Files

Another popular solution to solving this error is verifying game files. Over time, game files can get corrupted or missing for a number of reasons, including your antivirus software deleting them. This can cause sorts of random errors, just like this one.

Port Forward Your Router

Port forwarding forces your internet router to communicate with specific devices and servers. We’ll help you configure it so your PC doesn’t have issues connecting to Remnant 2 game servers. 

Important Tip: You need to know the IP (Internet Protocol) address of your router. It is typically written below your internet modem. However, that IP is often dynamic, which means it can change over time. You can reset your router to solve this issue. If the IP address is not visible below your modem, you can manually find it through Window’s command prompt.

Here’s how to do this process:

  1. Press Win, and search for Command Prompt. 
  2. Next, click on Run As Administrator. 
  3. Now, type ipconfig and press enter. 
  4. Under WIFI, your default gateway’s IP will be listed. Note that down.

Now that you know your router’s IP address, you can port forward your router.

To do so, follow the steps listed below:

  1. Open a web browser like Chrome or Firefox. 
  2. Next, type your modem’s IP address in there. 
  3. Now, you must enter your username and password for your WIFI router.

  4. After that, go to NAT settings. 
  5. Once you are there, you can add port forwarding. 
    • Set the application name to anything you want.
    • Set the Port From to 80. 
    • The protocol must be set to Both. 
    • Under IP address, list your own computer’s IP address. 
    • Next, set Port To to 80. 
    • Press Save.
