Question

So every time I turn on Red Dead Redemption 2 it lets me play the story mode just fine. But when go to the online section and hit play it keeps giving me the same error message. But yet doesn't even let me into the game I don't understand what's going on.

Did this begin occurring after the latest patch was released?   

Either way, I would report the bug to Rockstar support:

https://support.rockstargames.com/categories/115001624507?step=eccc1460

Also would suggest a Google search as this error code revealed several Reddit discussions and articles including this one with a possible solution:

Rockstar suggests not launching the online from within the story mode.  Instead by exiting to the main menu and launching the online mode from there, you should connect to a more stable server. In the event that this doesnt help, they recommend closing the application and trying again by launching directly from the main menu again. Hope this helps

I usually have to go and close the entire game, and start it up again, so have started exiting the game entirely before turning off the console.  That's the only way I've had these connection errors fixed, but I think some people are still having trouble even doing that.  Occasionally, I'll get one while leaving a story mission we just finished, in which case I don't even try getting back on without exiting the game and starting it back up.  Only had one night where I was unable to get back on at all for a bit, so left it alone for the night.

Every one of the messages I got or have seen shared on here have said that it was a fault on Rockstar's end, so they may be having issues with specific internet provider's, online games get that sometimes.  It's not your ISP having problems, it's Rockstar having trouble communicating with the ISP, I believe. I only took an Intro to Networking class as an elective course for my Telecommunications degree, so my networking knowledge is limited. Usually, the only thing to do in those cases is to report it with as much info about your end, and wait for them to fix it.

I had this happen to me a few times. I reset my router and it was fine. I don't know if that was a pure coincidence or not but you can try that. 

Also, I would contact them like mentioned above. If it is indeed an issue for them to fix, best to let them know about it.

R* suggested that I cleared cache first (hold L1 + R1 as soon as the opening image goes until you get the screen where you choose story or online). I do it often now and my games been really stable since.  I contacted them via social club help and they replied within an hour.  They were good, they sent info on how to do most of what's been mentioned above.

Xbox one here. Open NAT, 200+ mbps down, like 50-80 up, ipv4 and 6, hard wired in and I still get this error code. It is most definitely a rockstar error. I either get 0x20012006 if it happens in free roam or 0x20012000 any time I do a story mission or showdown. I can usually do free roam for a few hours maybe getting a disconnect, however I have not completed a mission or showdown in like  a month and a half, every time less than 5 min I get DCd.

 

any other explanation aside from it’s R*s fault?

What worked for me was to disable UPNP in my router settings.

If this does not work, then try put in the IP adresse in your DMZ settings, also in router.

This solved me, and 2 friends issues 🙂

do NOT do this for the long term, any intrusion will show the IP addresses in the DMZ as plainly visible and discoverable. this is never a wise decision except for a system that is very limited in scope or very secure

as soon as you are done playing, remove your ip from the dmz ASAP
