How to Fix Matchmaking Issues in PAYDAY 3

TL;DR: If you’re having trouble playing PAYDAY 3 with friends due to server issues, try restarting the game, your console or PC, or even reinstalling the game, but be patient because the game developers are working on fixing the problems.

Why can’t we have fun playing a heist game with our friends? In PAYDAY 3, the action is cool, but there are lots of problems with the servers since it came out.

PAYDAY 3 Matchmaking Issues Fix

Since PAYDAY 3 is a game that’s always online, it can be tough when the servers get too busy, and we can’t play our new favorite game. But don’t worry; there are some things we can try to get back into the game.

First, try closing the game and opening it again. It might sound strange, but sometimes this works. I’ve done it a few times, and suddenly, I could play again. Maybe I just got lucky, or the servers got a break. Anyway, give it a shot.

If that doesn’t work, there are other things to try. You can turn off your console or PC for a bit and then turn it back on. Sometimes, electronic things need a rest too. While you’re waiting for your system to restart, you can unplug your router to reset your internet connection. It might not be the problem, but it’s good to try everything.

If none of those things help, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling the game. Sometimes, there’s a bad file that’s causing problems. So, delete the game on your console or verify your game files on Steam if you’re playing on PC. Then, try to play the game again and see if it works.

The last option is to be patient. I know it’s not the best choice, but sometimes it’s the only one. The people at Starbreeze Studios are working hard to fix the problems, and they’ll get the servers working better soon. So, let’s hang in there.

Whether you’re new to PAYDAY or you’ve been playing for a while, we’ve got you covered with all the info you need about this game. Check out our PAYDAY 3 section below, and you’ll be ready to play with your friends once the server issues are gone.
