What causes this error?

This is a generic error code often stemming from server issues with either Epic Games or the game itself. Some popular causes include:

  • Corrupt/missing game files.
  • Internet issues.
  • DNS cache is corrupted.
  • Fall Guys servers are down.

How to fix this?

Here are six fixes you can try out. 

Check your internet connection

The Epic Games launcher requires an active internet connection to work. If you have an unstable internet connection, chances are you’re going to miss out on notifications. Suppose you’re on WiFi check to see if you’ve got internet access and strong signals. If you’re on mobile data, check to see if data is enabled and that you’ve got good network coverage.


Restart your router

Power cycling your network equipment is the fix to more issues than you can think. More often than not, connectivity issues can be caused by an underlying bug in your router and can be fixed by rebooting.


Verify game files

Depending on whether you’re playing the game on Epic Games or Steam, the process for verifying the game file integrity is slightly different. Regardless, ensuring all the game files are present and in working order is essential to avoiding crashes. 

On Epic Games

If you’re using Epic Games, follow these steps to verify game file integrity. 

Step 1: Open the Epic Games launcher and head to your library. Click the three horizontal dots next to the game’s name. Alternatively, you can just right-click the game tile. Click Manage. 

Step 2: In the window that appears, click the Verify button to start a file integrity check. 

Epic Games will now automatically download and replace any missing or corrupt game files. Relaunch the game once the check is done, and it should work just fine. 

On Steam

If you’re using Steam, follow these steps to verify game file integrity. 

Step 1: Head over to your Steam Library, right-click on Fall Guys and select Properties.
