Dead By Daylight players started encountering weird errors like error 8001. This error can be triggered by any number of issues, but most of the time, it has something to do with the connection to the game. Primarily, this issue is known to occur for console players rather than other platform players. Most commonly, it has been seen by Xbox Series X players. Let’s get into how to fix error 8001 in Dead By Daylight.
How To Fix Error 8001 – Dead By Daylight
While Xbox users are more prone to this issue, players from other platforms can encounter it as well. The truth is, that it’s mainly due to server issues with the game itself, or the Xbox or PS service, it is as simple as that.
However, there are things players can try to supposedly fix the issue, if it isn’t a server-wide issue. One of them being, deleting the cache on Xbox. Here’s how to do that:
- Turn off your Xbox.
- Unplug the main power cord.
- Wait a couple of minutes before plugging in the cord again.
- Turn it back on.
This is a soft reset of sorts for the Xbox. The same method will apply to PlayStation users as well. There is another way to clear the cache for Xbox as well. If the first method doesn’t appeal to you, go to your profile > Settings > Devices & Connections > Blu-Ray > Persistent Storage > click on ‘Clear Persistent Storage’.
If clearing the cache didn’t work, make sure that you check the status of the servers for Dead By Daylight, and services like Xbox and PlayStation servers.
Also, you’ll need to ensure that you have a sufficiently stable and fast internet connection. You can test it through on console easily, but you can also check it by going to SpeedTest.
Make sure that you have a wired connection, to ensure the most stable delivery of connection. Lastly, you can also reset your router, to see if that’s causing the error.
