Hitman 3 is a vast, sprawling assassination experience spread all across the globe. It’s also a game that requires a persistent internet connection, which can spell trouble for certain players. The worst problem this requirement causes is the unable to load requested menu error. When this appears, the game gets stuck in a retry loop, and you don’t receive any experience or rewards. Here’s what you can do to fix it.
Hitman 3 | How to fix unable to load requested menu error
The unable to load requested menu error in Hitman 3 usually appears when completing a mission. Instead of getting your experience, rewards, and unlocks, the game will say it’s unable to load the requested menu. The only option is to retry loading, but that never seems to work. Worst of all, this error persists even if you re-load your save and try to complete the mission again. For whatever reason, once this message appears, there’s no going back.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any specific fix for this error. When the Hitman 3 client is unable to load the requested menu, the only option is to return to the main menu. This problem is most often associated with unstable internet connections; since Hitman 3 requires a persistent internet connection, it won’t be able to load menus while offline or disconnected from servers. Network woes can also cause the connection failed error.
In some cases, this error may be linked with specific IOI accounts. In fact, many reports of the issue come from players who haven’t yet created an account. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can create your own IOI account here.
There is good news, though: You haven’t necessarily missed out on your mission rewards. The only true solution to the unable to load requested menu error is to restart the mission later. Once you’ve completed it again, you should be credited and awarded for all of the mission stories and challenges you completed beforehand.
To avoid the unable to load requested menu error, make sure your internet connection is stable. You should also ensure that you’ve either created or linked an IOI account to Hitman 3. Wonky connections aside, this error seems most common among users who haven’t signed up. Otherwise, there’s no real fix other than to repeat the mission in order to reclaim any missed rewards.
