Playing online games comes with a drawback which is the nature of online infrastructure. As long as things work as per your needs, the online games are all wonderful. But at times, not everything goes as per your plan. Lately in monster hunter world, an error ‘failed to join quest’ has been popping up causing a lot of troubles for the online players. The error hinders the online connectivity of the players, preventing them from teaming up and playing the game online.
Good news is that the root cause for this error has been identified and you can resolve it fairly easily. This guide is just about that!
What is the ‘failed to join error’ in monster hunter world?
As the name suggests, the error mainly turns up when players attempt to join the online sessions. The error causes real troubles for the players that need to play online SOS quests.
There are good chances that this error mostly occurs when the quest a player is trying to join has already been filled up. It’s like trying to join a lobby that is already filled with players.
How to solve the error?
One quick solution is to request the host to quit the quest, and then rejoin the lobby before launching it again. But this workaround barely works.
But most of the times, the error is caused for reasons other than just a full lobby. It is quite possible that the failure to join may occur due to the failure of certain elements of the player’s network settings. When this happens, the error could lie literally anywhere from interference based, firewalls, wrong settings of NAT, or simply the player’s antivirus settings.
Tracking down the error assuming that there is no problem with the lobby side, could be a real challenge and the challenge has only been made harder with the release of monster hunter world for PCs.
For PC players, with large numbers of different hardware combinations, PC players are expected to at least understand the PC system troubleshooting to figure out where the root of the error lies in their system.
Nonetheless, this problem may equally occur on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. But in this system, the problem can be addressed in a simpler and more straightforward manner as compared to the complex PC systems.
As both Xbox and PS come with console network diagnostic and testing tools which can provide enormous help in identifying and resolving the errors caused between their home networks and the consoles. You can find these options in your respective console’s settings menu.
This error is one of the many similar errors that have the effect of preventing the players from joining the online sessions. But there are workarounds that you find by keeping in touch with Capcom’s open-world different guides offered by Shacknews.
