Change The Leader/Host

The very first fix we would recommend trying out is to change the leader of your team, as it has been reported that this method fixed the issue for a lot of players. If this doesn’t work, then there is also a good chance that something is going about with the server of the game, and then you’ll just have to wait until the issue is automatically resolved.

Sign Out Of The Xbox App

Reddit user u/Ok_Task5367 pointed out in a post by u/M4GNUM_FORCE_44 on the Darktide subreddit that the error code 4001 can also be fixed by signing out of the Xbox app while in-game. Simply start the game and go to the point where you normally face the error code, but before you click on “Start”, open up the Xbox app, click on your profile icon and sign out. Then go back into the game and press “ Start”.

If this doesn’t work, then try signing out of the Xbox Game Bar App as well.

Wrap Up

These are all the known fixes for the error code 4001. We hope our guide helped you out; if you are still facing the error, then you can also try out traditional fixes, such as restarting your router and verifying file integrity, but these are more general fixes and are not worth listing separately.

In any case, this error is mainly caused by network issues, so it should get an official patch from the developers soon, but that is all from us. Warhammer 40,00 Darktide is available now on Xbox Series S/X and PC. Do let us know what you think about the game in the comment section below.
