Here are all the most common Darktide error codes:

Darktide 2001 error

This error seems to indicate that your PC may not meet the minimum system requirements for Darktide. However, if your PC encounters them, you may need to update your graphics card drivers, reset your router, or check your potentially corrupt game files.

Darktide 2003 error

This message tells you that you have been disconnected from the server. If this happens frequently, try restarting your PC or verifying game files. If that doesn’t work, you can try changing your DNS settings. From your PC’s Control Panel, go to Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center. Click the option next to Connections and select properties to get the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) window. Enter your preferred DNS server as “” and your alternate DNS server as “”.

Darktide 2007 error

This error code indicates an ‘internal error’. From what we can tell, this may be related to error 2003, so the same fixes may apply. However, this can also be a problem on Fat Shark’s servers. If none of the above fixes work then you need to wait for the developers to fix the server error.

Darktide error 4001

This one gives the message “hot join party hub failed” and seems related to joining other players. If this happens, ask the host to check their connection settings first, or try hosting the game yourself and ask other players to join you instead.

Oil spill error 4008

Indicates “handshake timeout failure”, which could be a problem for VPN users. However, it’s also worth checking that you’re not downloading anything in the background, checking your firewall settings, and verifying game files before disabling your VPN.

Oil spill error 5001

If you get this error, it means that you cannot connect to the current mission because it is “not healthy”. We don’t currently know what this means, but we’re assuming it’s joining a mission while it’s active and in a location where joining is impossible.

Oil spill error 5002

Unfortunately, this seems to indicate that server maintenance is in progress. There’s nothing you can really do about this except wait a while for the servers to come back up.

Darktide error 30004

This is a launch error indicating that your installation may be corrupted in some way. It might be worth checking your game installation through Steam if you get this, especially if there are any updates that fix it.

I hope you find a solution via this list of Darktide error codes and can once again dive into the sinister world of Warhammer 40K. However, if you have to wait for a fix, why not level up to get the best gear for your class with our best Veteran, Zealot, Psyker, or Ogryn builds? Either that or you can research the best Darktide weapons to complement your chosen character.
