When Playerground’s Battleground (PUBG) first introduced as a beta in 2017, it was full of bugs and glitches.
But ever since its official release, the bugs are slowly being eradicated. However, there still are an insignificant number of errors that still exist. One of those problems includes Server did not respond error.
PUBG Server did not respond to error hints to issues related to the internet/server.
Since PUBG is an online multiplayer game, errors like this can fully halt the game and there’s nothing much you can do.
The server did not respond error usually happens when the servers are down or too busy.
PUBG requires a strong and stable internet connection too so, a slow internet connection can be at fault too.
The game takes too much time to load and throws an error box that states Server did not respond. Please return to the login page and try again in a while.
How To Repair PUBG Server did not respond Error?
The first thing you should do is do some basic checks that include the following:
- PUBG servers are up and running. No notice of maintenance.
- Your Internet Connection is working and stable.
- Your Wifi speed and ping is enough to play a multiplayer online game
- You aren’t using your Mobile Data.
Once you do these, try restarting the app. If even restarting doesn’t help, change your DNS. When the DNS server of your ISP is using isn’t working properly, you cannot remain connected to the game’s server.
