How to Fix Soul Calibur 6 Network Error on Xbox One

Here are a couple of fixes that might help you solve the network error bugs in Soul Calibur 6 on Xbox One before the official patch arrives.

Since launch last Friday, many Xbox One Soul Calibur 6 players have been reporting an awful lot of errors related to network performance specifically during ranked and casual matchmaking. Other players have experienced network lags and other issues even during the story campaign.

In any case, Bandai Namco is looking at the issue at this very moment and are trying to find the solution that should satisfy all Xbox One owners. But if you don't want to wait, then here are a couple of fixes that might help you out before the official patch arrives.

SC6 Network Error Fix 1: Activate Xbox Dashboard

Network lag in Soul Calibur 6 is a common error, so it has nothing to do with your hardware. However, here's one simple trick that can reduce lag during matchmaking.

Here's what you need to do:

  1. Go to Network menu
  2. Select Ranked Match
  3. Press the A button for matchmaking to begin
  4. While searching for an opponent, press the Guide button (Xbox logo)
  5. The Xbox dashboard will appear on the screen
  6. Don't close it until matchmaking is over

This simple process has already helped many Xbox One players increase the chance of finding an opponent quickly.

SC6 Network Error Fix 2: Reset Matchmaking

Another solution to network lag in Soul Calibur 6 is to manually reset your matchmaking. This is not the best solution, but if nothing else works, then try it out anyway.

Here's what you need to do: 

  1. Go to Network Settings
  2. Set connection to All Regions
  3. Start matchmaking
  4. Reset search after 60 seconds
  5. Repeat until you connect

Some Xbox One players were able to connect to ranked matches using this method, which is still better than having no connection at all.


Bandai Namco should release the official patch very soon that will fix the network connectivity issue on Xbox One, and for other Soul Calibur 6 guides at GameSkinny, just follow the links below:
