While you wait for the devs to provide a permanent fix, we recommend you check the Remnant 2 server status to see if there is an outage. If that is the case, wait for the servers to be normal. However, if the problem is from your end, these are some troubleshooting tips that will work for you.

Check Internet Connection

Since the Remnant 2 Failed To Join Session issue is connected to your Internet network, the first thing to do is make sure your Internet Connection is working. A speed test works splendidly and will give you an idea if this is the reason of the issue. Along with that, avoid any major download on any of your devices that might use up more Bandwidth to steer clear of connection issues.

Restart Modem & Router

Your modem and router might have collected a lot of unnecessary cache which might be giving you troubles while trying to add or join your friends in Remnant 2. Restarting them will help you get a much faster and resolved network connection. Additionally, since modem and routers are running 24/7, they might get overheated on occasions. A simple restart is enough to cool it down and help it function better.

Allow Remnant 2 on Windows Defender Firewall

Your Windows Defender Firewall settings might be blocking the game and this might cause the Remnant 2 Failed To Join Session issue. Here’s how you can add it to the Exception list:

  • Open the Firewall & Network Protection from your Windows Security.
  • Locate and click Allow an app through Firewall.
  • Look for the Remnant 2 files in the list.
  • If you can’t find it, follow these steps –
    • Click on Change Settings.
    • Click on Add Another App.
    • Browse for your Remnant Files and then Add the game to the Exception list.
  • Once you add the game to the Exception list, it should not have any problem with Windows Defender.

Turn Off Administrator

If you are looking to play multiplayer online, you will have to turn off the run game as administrator option. Since it will interfere with multiplayer, turn it off while you are trying to connect online.

If none of these are working for you, it’s best if you contact Remnant 2 Support. You could get some useful help directly from the team handling the game behind the scenes. Since you are playing Remnant 2, do check out our other guides on our dedicated section here at Gamer Tweak.
