Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is out but MCC is still going strong and it will be like that for a long time to come. Players who grew up with these games refuse to part ways with it and with such a large player base and so many maps and modes to choose from, the game is pretty much a one-stop-shop for everything Halo., So, naturally it can get annoying if you feel like throwing down in classic maps and game modes and the game suddenly decides to not work. Let’s take a look at some of those reasons and find potential fixes for the Halo Master Chief Collection multiplayer not working issue.
Halo Master Chief Collection (MCC) Multiplayer Not Working Fix
Just like every other multiplayer game, one of the primary reasons for MCC Multiplayer to not work can be a server-side issue or server maintenance. 343 Industries are pretty quick in fixing server-side issues and keeps the community posted with updates. In the case of maintenance, they inform the players well in advance when and for how long the maintenance will take place.
With that out of the way, here are a few other reasons –
- There could be some problems with your network so try restarting your router and see if it fixed the issue, if not then try contacting your ISP.
- Your NAT type may be Strict and that’s a no-no for any and every online game in most cases. Try getting your NAT to Open and if that doesn’t work on your own then contact your ISP once again.
Try restarting your game, your console, or your router and see if it brings any change.
- Matchmaking is mostly region-based(servers in your area) at first then it expands into the grander scale, so there may be a possibility of not many active players playing the game on your server and that causing delays and you not being able to find matches. You can use a VPN to fix that issue.
- Finally, Xbox Live itself may be facing some problems and that could be the reason behind your bad multiplayer experience. You can check the status of Xbox Live on Microsoft’s website and see for yourself if there are any issues.
These have been some of the potential issues that plague the multiplayer land of Halo Master Chief Collection. Problems are situational and so are their solutions so I hope some of the fixes come in handy in your case. If so, then you can check out other articles here at GamerTweak.
