Backend Error: COULDNT_RESOLVE_PROXY on launch

Hi, tried playing Vermintide 2 for the first time today and am encountering this error message every time upon launching the game ‘Backend Error: COULDNT_RESOLVE_PROXY’. This is similar to the issue in this thread:, however I can’t see a resolution in the thread.

I have tried validating integrity of Steam files, using Google public DNS, and switching from Wifi to mobile data. I have also tried accessing this link and am able to see a blank page and ‘connection is secure’ in site information.

Any help to get this resolved is much appreciated!

Do you have a log file you can append?

Are you normally using a proxy for browsing?

The last player to experience this issue had it as a result of a manual proxy they had set up. They needed to remove both http and https proxies.

Turns out it was indeed http and https proxies in my system environment variables (which were not causing issues with any other app or browser), the game works now after deleting them so this is now resolved.

Thanks for the help all, and for the great game :slight_smile:

Pleased to hear that! Best of luck. :slight_smile:
