Like all games with a multiplayer component, Halo Infinite always has the potential to break. It’s just a part of modern gaming that you might sit down to play some matches and be met with an error message. The “Multiplayer is unavailable” error is not common in Halo Infinite, but it is annoying, so we will tell you what we know about it.
Halo Infinite Multiplayer is Unavailable Error
It shouldn’t surprise you that this error means that multiplayer is completely offline. It can populate in the event of a planned outage or during a period of server issues that 343 Industries were not expecting. If you want to check if Halo Infinite is offline, then services like Downdetector can be very helpful. You can also visit the official Halo Infinite Support account on Twitter to see if they have posted any information.
For the most part, there won’t be much that you can do at your end to resolve the problem, as it is normally caused by issues at the server end. However, there are a few steps you can take if you want to ensure that it is not your connection or equipment that is the problem.
Begin by restarting the game, and if that doesn’t work, you can try powering off your console or PC and then resetting your router. There is a slight chance that something has gone amiss somewhere, and a simple reset could resolve the problem for you.
If that doesn’t work, you can try changing your DNS address from the one that has been assigned to you by your ISP to Google’s at 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. This, frankly, is unlikely to work, but you should do it if you want to ensure the issue is not at your end. The best thing to do is simply hold tight and wait for 343 Industries to resolve the problem, as any sizeable outage will be spotted quickly and will be a matter of priority for the developer.
