Mortal Kombat 1 server error - fighters having a go

Are you ready to get back on the fighting arena? Well yes, but unfortunately sometimes there are other problems in the way. Have you been having issues with Mortal Kombat 1 server error? Then we can help to fix it.

Unfortunately, with games that have been launched relatively recently, servers are often swamped by a lot of people and that can lead to errors.

But if you are stuck with Mortal Kombat 1 server error, there are some simple fixes to try. Let's look at them.

How to fix the Mortal Kombat 1 server error

The first thing you should do is check if the Mortal Kombat 1 servers are up and running. While the game might not have a dedicated server status page, you can use third-party websites such as DownDetector.

Alternatively, you can visit the reddit Mortal Kombat X Twitter page as you might find updates about scheduled maintenance and other reported server issues there.

Check your Internet connection

If there are no reported Mortal Kombat 1 server issues or ongoing maintenance, the problem is most likely on your end. Double-check your own internet connection and make sure the game is fully up to date. Here are some things you can try.

  • Restart your router.
  • Close programs that you aren't using to ensure as little traffic on the network as possible.
  • Disconnect other devices from your router to reduce the competition for bandwidth.
  • Change DNS settings (You can use the public google DNS primary:, secondary:, unless there is a different DNS you would rather use)
  • Untick the options in LAN Settings (make sure nothing is checked under Proxy Server)

Also, you can try moving closer to your router. If possible, switch to a wired connection as they offer more stability. If you use a VPN, you try turning it off and see if the issue is fixed.

Add Mortal Kombat 1 to the safe list

It is possible that your firewall is blocking Mortal Kombat 1 from connecting to the Internet. In that case, you need to add the game to the safe list of your firewall. To do that:

  • Go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection.
  • Under Virus & threat protection settings, select Manage settings, and then under Exclusions, select Add or remove exclusions.
  • Select Add an exclusion, and browse and select the .exe file of Mortal Komba 1.

If you use any third-party anti-virus, you may need to add the game to the safe list of anti-virus software as well. Or you can just disable the anti-virus while you are running the game and see if the issue is resolved.
