Overwatch 2 Error Code LC-202 Fix

The error code is accompanied by the error message, “Lost Connection to Game Server (LC202).” Connection errors basically mean that the issue is with the server or the user’s connection. Before you decide to meddle with your internet settings it’s always safe to check if the Overwatch 2 servers are live. Here is everything you need to know about the error and its fix.

One of the likely causes of the Overwatch 2 LC-202 error is the expanding number of players overwhelming the servers. The game is still in beta but more players are being invited. A sudden influx of players may be the cause of the error. However, if the servers are stable and you still run into the issue, here are some things you can try.

  1. Reboot the PC/console and the router.
  2. The second fix may not be ideal for you if you are security conscious, but put the router/modem in DMZ and the error may be fixed.
  3. If you are getting the error on PC, try to flush DNS and set the DNS to Google.
  4. Verify the game files and if that fails, try reinstalling the game.

These are the best solutions you can try at the time. As the game is still in beta, the likely cause of the error may be an issue with the server being overcrowded. If you get this error at a later date when the game is released, you may want to check your NAT settings and ensure it’s open. Usually, issues such as these seem to occur more when the NAT type if not set to Open.

That’s all we have in this guide, we will update the post if we hear from the devs or have more insight into the problem.
