Darktide error 2006 is a common code that players notice while trying to enter any mission. As of now, there is no official word from Fatshark on how to resolve the error.

You can still try a few techniques nonetheless. Here are some ways by which you can fix this error.

Restarting your PC

If you are witnessing Darktide error 2006, close Steam and then restart your PC. This will fix some minor bugs and the game should run smoothly.

You can also check the internet connection and ethernet cables. Make sure that the cables are plugged in firmly and the router is not damaged.

By tweaking the worker threads

Worker threads are the number of threads and cores that your CPU is currently using to run the game. You can alter the worker thread settings in order to counter the fluctuations and lags in your game.

Before starting to play Darktide, go to Settings > Worker thread and then reduce it to at least 2 or 3.

Increase it by one point if the game still lags. You will have to do this process repeatedly till you get the best game performance.
