Like with all internet-connected games, Rainbow Six Siege occasionally experiences connection errors. To make matters more confusing, many of the error codes are random jumbles of numbers and letters. Such is the case with Rainbow Six Siege error code 3-0x0001000B, which seems to prevent players from joining online matches. As it turns out, code 3-0x0001000B has a common cause and a very simple solution.
Rainbow Six error code 3-0x0001000B fix
According to Ubisoft support, Rainbow Six error code 3-0x0001000B appears when there’s a problem connecting to Ubisoft servers. This code typically appears alongside general connection errors during times of server outages or maintenance.
Even though you may not be able to jump into a game, this news is good: Error code 3-0x0001000B is what’s known as a server-side issue. Since there’s nothing wrong with your local game client, there’s nothing you need to do to fix the problem. Instead, you’ll simply have to wait until the folks at Ubisoft are able to get servers back up and running.
Any time you experience connection errors, it’s worth checking out the official Rainbow 6 server status page. There you’ll be able to see if there is any planned maintenance or unplanned outages. If so, you can rule out any sort of problems with your PC or console. Beyond that, it may also be worth checking DownDetector, as its user-submitted reports often highlight connection problems before official server status pages.
Of course, that’s not to say that error code 3-0x0001000B is always based around server outages. In the case that this code appears outside of planned maintenance or downtime, Ubisoft Support advises players to troubleshoot their internet connections.
If error code 3-0x0001000B is preventing you from joining Rainbow Six, you’ll need to wait until the servers stabilize. Chances are good there’s either planned maintenance or an unexpected server outage. Hang tight, and you’ll be back in the game before you know it.
