RDR2 Online beta has started today, and there are already players experiencing problems. There aren’t many issues at this point, but they’re pretty widespread. Some of them can be avoided or fixed, while others are more systemic, and will required the developers’ attention. In this guide, we’re going to show you a list of Red Dead Redemption 2 Online errors & problems, and how to solve them if possible.
RDR2 Online coming soon screen on Xbox
The most error reports at this point are from Xbox players with digital versions of the game. Even those who’ve bought the ultimate edition have been complaining about not being able to access the game.
It seems like Xbox owners are getting the short end of the stick here. Rockstar is aware of the issue and is investigating it. If you’ve tried a hard restart of the console and signing out of your account, there’s literally nothing more you can do but wait.
We are aware of an issue affecting Xbox One Ultimate Edition players not being able to access Red Dead Online. Please be patient as we investigate this issue.— Rockstar Support (@RockstarSupport) November 27, 2018
RDR2 online game sharing not working
A number of players have reported being unable to play Red Dead Redemption 2 Online using Playstation’s game sharing option. The host/owner has no trouble playing online, but the guest cannot access the online portion. This might be working as intended, as it wouldn’t be the first game that restricts access to people who use game sharing, but it also might just be a bug. We’ve yet to see a statement from either the devs or Sony on the subject, so at this point, all you can do is try again later.
Error 0x20013000, 0x99395004, 0x21002001 – RDR2 connection problems
If you’ve received a message saying you’ve been disconnected from the servers due to a “fault in Rockstar game services”, along with any of the above error codes, you’ll just have to try again. Since it’s the early days of the beta, such hiccups are to be expected and there’s nothing to be done about it.
We’re going to be monitoring the situation around these and any other problems that might arise, and we’ll keep the guide updated with the latest info. Stay tuned.
If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
