News: Helldivers 2 is now ready to purchase and download to dive into the galaxies universe where players can join the fight for freedom in a hostile galaxy. The developers have tried to make the game interesting and playable without any issues, but many users are reporting on various forums and Reddit for the “Server Request Failed” error.
The “Failed to Join Game Lobby” error is frustrating players and preventing them from playing the game and jumping into selected in-game galaxies.
Fix Helldivers 2 Failed to Join Game Lobby Error
The “Failed to Join Game Lobby” error in Helldivers 2 is a result of server overload: heavy traffic or a bundle of users at the same time can be the result.
However, by turning off crossplay and spam-clicking the “QuickPlay” button, you can bypass this error and enjoy the game.
Turn off crossplay
The crossplay feature may be unavailable or may encounter an issue due to heavy traffic resulting in connection issues with the game lobby, disable crossplay and check if it helps.
- Pause menu > Options > Gameplay.
- Crossplay > Off > Save your changes.
- Now, try joining a game lobby again.
If you get the “Failed to Join Game Lobby” error, click on the “Quickplay” button again and keep clicking on the button until you manage to join a game lobby.
This helped many users and you can also bypass the issue by this trick.
Join friends directly
Until the game’s servers are up and load-free, you can connect directly with friends (people you already know or friend codes you’ve shared on social media) instead of using the game lobby.
Use friend code to play the game and bypass the problem.
Wait For A New Update
If all steps fail to resolve the issue and you are still unable to join the game lobby then, it could be caused by an unknown bug on the developers’ side. Wait for the new patch or update and install it as soon as it launches: with new updates, known bugs, and errors are resolved.
So, keep your eyes on Helldivers 2 official social accounts for any announcements.
