How to Solve Stuck on “Attempting to Join Server” in BattleBit Remastered

As with any troubleshooting for an error that does not have a definite culprit, I like to first suggest steps that take the least effort from the reader, and then we’ll move on to more complex stuff.

  1. Check Your Internet Connection. Does web browsing work? Do other games work? Is the router working properly?
  2. Check if the developers have announced any outages on Twitter.
  3. Check if Steam is Down.
  4. Restart your game. Yes, I am aware that “Have you tried turning it off and on again” is a customer support trope that will never stop being funny. But in all honesty, it does help from time to time.
  5. Restart your Steam Client. To do this, right-click the Steam icon in your Windows Taskbar, hit Exit, and then run it again. An alternative way is to press Ctrl+Shift+Escape in order to gain access to Windows Task Manager, from where you can “End Process” of Steam.
  6. Verify the Integrity of Game Files on Steam. You can do this by right-clicking on BattleBit Remastered in your Steam Library, then going to Properties, Local Files, and then hitting the verification option.
  7. Check if you have firewall and VPN enabled and if so, if they are interfering with BattleBit Remastered. You can always set exceptions or just turn off the software while investigating if these are causing your issues. For this, you should consult your product manual or the appropriate support team, depending on which product(s) are you using.
