What Causes This Error?

The error occurs when too many people try to connect to the Halo Infinite servers. As a result, you’ll be unable to access any of the online game modes.

How to Fix It

The first thing you should do before trying to troubleshoot is to check the status of the Halo Infinite servers. Doing this will let you know if you should try and fix the issue or just check back later to see if the servers are working. If the servers are not down, then try rebooting your PC. Another solution is to check for an update. You may be unable to get online due to having an outdated version of Halo Infinite. Make sure the game is closed and then check for an update. Don’t open the game again until it’s installed.

One reason for this error could be your internet connection. An issue with the internet could prevent Halo Infinite from connecting with the online servers. Windows 10 and 11 feature the ability to reset Network Adapters. You can also use the Internet Connections Troubleshooter by opening Run and then entering the following: msdt.exe /id NetworkDiagnosticsWeb. If these solutions aren’t working for you then it might be best to contact Microsoft or 343 Industries for more assistance. You can submit a support ticket to 343 here.
