Fix Red Dead Online Error Code 0x40003002
The error message reads “You’ve been disconnected from Red Dead Online due to a network error. Error: 0x40003002.” Although the message suggests a network error, we can confirm it’s a problem with the game as users who reported the problem could play the game prior to the patch. As such, there is not much you can do to fix the problem permanently. However, there are certain temporary fix that can get you in the game, but the fix is not universal and the error may arise again.
The first fix you must attempt is to restart the system and if the error persists, rested the network. Players on PC can renew the IP and flush the DNS. PS4 players should hard reset the devices i.e. close the PS4, disconnect the power cords, allow it to rest for 30 seconds, press on the power button for 10 seconds, reconnect the power cord, and boot the PS4. Xbox users should also try and reset the device. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, let it rest for a few seconds and boot it up again. If you have hard reset correctly, a green screen should appear when you restart.
