How to Fix 0x21002001 Error Code & What It Means in Red Dead Online
The Red Dead Online beta has finally gone live on Xbox One and PS4. Players are now free to go about being the rootinest, tootinest cowboy that the wild west has ever seen either on their own, or as part of a posse with friends. Of course, with this being an online game and a beta, chances are you’re going to hit some error codes along the way. Here’s how to fix 0x21002001 error code in Red Dead Online and what it means.
If you’ve been hit with the 0x21002001 error code while playing Red Dead Online, then don’t worry too much. This isn’t any kind of technical issue on your end. It’s more likely the case that Rockstar’s servers are being battered by traffic as players all desperately try to log-in and check out what’s going on.
This is particularly true while Red Dead Online is in its beta form, as this is literally why Rockstar whacked the ‘beta’ label on the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2. It enables them to stagger players’ access into the game, and also perform stress tests and make tweaks on their end, in order to ensure a smooth and stable gameplay experience come the full, official release.
To fix the 0x21002001 error code, you’ll need to simply back out to the main menu when you see it, and then simply start Red Dead Online just as you did initially. Hopefully, the disconnect didn’t result in you losing a bunch of your progress, but with a bit of luck, you’ll spawn back into the world right where you were like we did.
If you continue to get the 0x21002001 error code, you might want to reach out to Rockstar Support over on Twitter and ensure that there’s nothing that could possibly be causing any connectivity issues between yourself and the servers. Chances are, however, this really is just a few teething problems that’ll be ironed out over time.
