Rainbow Six Siege players love to complain about the various bugs and flaws of the game. While sometimes these complaints are ultra-specific and nitpicks, other times players hit on a huge issue. Such is the case when Rainbow Six Siege players recently logged on to their games only to discover the notorious error code: 2-0x0000d013.

This error code has plagued Rainbow Six Siege for several years now, popping up every so often much to the dismay of players and Ubisoft alike. The error code's rich history also means players have discovered different ways to fix it. Here's how to fix that pesky error:

Rainbow Six Siege Error Code 2-0x0000d013: How to Fix

Rainbow Six Siege Error Code 2-0x0000d013 has two potential fixes: verify game files and connectivity troubleshooting.

Two major things are worth noting before diving into these fixes: the first option is only applicable to PC players and the second option often doesn't work although Ubisoft still recommends trying it out.

There are two different ways to verify game files depending on how PC players purchased the game. If the game was purchased directly through Ubisoft, then players will need to verify game files through Ubisoft Connect PC while if Rainbow Six was purchased through Steam players will need to verify game files there.

In order to verify game files through Ubisoft Connect players will need to go to the "Games" tab, locate Rainbow Six Siege, and click the arrow in the bottom right corner. A drop down menu should appear, from there players merely need to click "verify files." If necessary players may also need to click "repair." This will initiate the verify process and Ubisoft Connect will restore any files that are missing or corrupted.

For Steam players the process is quite similar and just as simple. Players need to direct themselves to the Steam lobby and then either right click Rainbow Six Siege or the gear icon in Rainbow Six Siege's library page. A drop down menu will appear from which players should select "properties," then "local files," and then "verify integrity of game files." Doing so will begin the verification process.

Once players have verified their game files then they should launch Rainbow Six Siege and see if that has repaired the issue. If not they should proceed to the next step for PC players which is also the only step for console players: connectivity troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting connectivity issues is too long of a process to describe here, so please visit the official Ubisoft pages (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S). If all else fails open a support ticket with Ubisoft.

Sometimes issues like this are best fixed in an update, so players should keep an ear out for any Rainbow Six Siege updates Ubisoft may soon announce.
