How To Fix Rainbow Six Error Code 2-0X0000D00C

At the time of writing, there is no conclusive resolution to this particular error. We know Ubisoft is investigating, and they recommend following their News and Announcements page for updates. But if you don't want to wait indefinitely, is there anything you can try in the meantime?

We have a few suggestions that may be worth trying:

  • One of the first steps is to check the status page for any known server issues. If there are any known problems, then wait until those issues are resolved before trying again.
  • Your next step is to take a look at possible connectivity issues. This includes the following:
    • Reset your router, to refresh your network connection.
    • If you are using WiFi, then if possible, try switching to a wired connection, as this will usually increase stability.
    • Try to enable UPnP (universal plug 'n' play). You can get in touch with your ISP for help with this.
    • You can also try port forwarding to improve your connection. The ports you need are as follows:
    • For PlayStation:
      • TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480.
      • UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658, 6115, 10000-10099​.
    • For Xbox:
      • TCP: 80, 443.
      • UDP: 3074​, 6150, 10000-10099.
    • On PC:
      • TCP: 13000, 13005, 13200, 14000, 14001, 14008, 14020, 14021, 14022, 14023, 14024
      • UDP: 6015
  • It's also important to check for any outstanding updates, and download those as soon as you can.

Players who have encountered this error have reported being unable to join online matches. They are getting the message, "Error Code 2-0X0000D00C you are unable to join this match because you abandoned the previous one". But it doesn't appear to be true that all affected players have, in fact, abandoned their previous matches. So what's going on?

Error code 2-0X0000D00C is not to be confused with Error code 2-0X0000E00C, Error 2-0X0000E000​, or even Error code 2-0x0000D00A. This one doesn't currently appear on the official list of known error codes on the Ubisoft website.

But there are some conclusions that we may be able to draw by taking a look at those other, very similar errors.

The three error codes we highlighted all indicate issues with your connection to either the matchmaking service, or the Rainbow Six servers. And while we can't say with total certainty, it seems reasonable to assume that this new error might be part of the same family.

Ubisoft has confirmed that this error is being investigated, and the dev team is working on a fix. So keep an eye out for any updates, and install them as soon as you can.

In the meantime, try the fixes we suggested above. They work for the other errors we've mentioned. They are almost certainly your best bet for error code 2-0X0000D00C as well. Until a fix arrives, at least.
