December 3, 2021

Here are some unofficial user-end fixes for FFXIV Endwalker error 2002 that might help you get rid of the issue temporarily.

Final Fantasy XIV fans are delighted to get their hands on the Endwalker expansion after much anticipation earlier than others. While the DLC is supposed to be out earlier next week, you can actually start playing as of now if you are allowed to take part in the early access session.

However, it seems like the early access players are not quite happy with the game as an infamous error keeps interrupting their playthrough every now and then.

How to Fix the FFXIV Endwalker Error 2002

Since there isn’t an official solution for the problem yet, we decided to check through the community chats on socials, discovering some unofficial fixes that may or may not work for you as well.

Error 2002 could appear on your screen in different situations, but it simply means that you have lost your connection to the game’s servers. Unfortunately, this is going to happen even if you lost connection for a really brief amount of time.

It remains unknown that whether losing connection is something from the back end or user end, but we suggest you quit the game and reset your router once you faced this issue. This has apparently solved the issue for some players.

Also, we suggest you use a different internet source than your original router if possible, and see if the issue is still persistent. You can also try out different DNS addresses as the last thing that could be done as a temporary fix from the user-end.

As reported by Millenium, the issue is related to the high traffic on the game’s servers as many players request access to the game and this apparently exceeds the allowed number for concurrent logins on the servers, which results in the disconnection of some other players.

Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will be available on December 7 on PC for all players. Keep in mind that this is paid content.
