Connection Issues

Issue Description:

When playing vermintide (I typically play on the modded realm but this also applies to the official realm), I DC from anyone’s host fairly often. I have noticed it depends on the location. if they are closer to me on East Coast, it is typically better and I only DC here and there. If they are on the West Coast, I DC a lot more frequently. If I host, the problem applies to anyone connecting to me. They will DC quite a bit typically. This has applied across two different desktops/computers on THREE different internet locations/geographical locations (2 were ethernet and one was wifi). All three were different internet providers as well. I am a bit lost at this point and am starting to think it is more likely a program on my computer perhaps? Are there any well-known programs that conflict with Vermintide’s connection? This will occasionally happen on Darktide as well (2001 error code). My internet is quite fast, stable, and reliable on ANY game other than Darktide/Vermintide. Anything I can do? Thanks!

Hi @d2bala,

Sorry to hear this.

There aren’t any well known offendors that I can mention unfortunately, it tends to vary a lot!

What I can suggest though is to try the following -

Perform a ‘Selective Startup’, which can help to identify if a background application is the cause:

  1. Press the Windows key
  2. Type ‘msconfig’ and select ‘System Configuration’
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘Selective Startup’
  4. Deselect ‘Load startup Items’
  5. Reboot your PC
  6. Launch Vermintide 2 as normal

If the issue no longer persists after having performed the Selective Startup, you will need to re-enable each of your usual background applications one-by-one until it reoccurs, to determine which is the culprit.

Sometimes Anti-Virus/Firewall can also be an issue. Please ensure you have appropriate Anti-Virus and Firewall exceptions in place for both Vermintide 2 and Easy Anti-Cheat:
You’ll need to add the following:

  • vermintide2.exe in \Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\binaries
  • vermintide2_dx12.exe in \Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\binaries_dx12
  • EasyAntiCheat.exe in \Program Files (x86)\EasyAntiCheat
