Fix: Dead By Daylight Error Code 411
To be very precise, Dead By Daylight players are encountering the sync error message that says “SYNC ERROR. An error occurred while synchronizing game data with the server. Error code: 411.” This becomes one of the common issues as of now and seems like plenty of players are getting affected by it.
Luckily, we’ve managed to provide you a couple of possible workarounds that you should try. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into the guide below.
1. Reboot Your Device
It seems that maybe your computer or gaming console is having an issue with the cache or temporary glitch whatsoever. Sometimes a simple restart of the device can fix plenty of issues in a matter of seconds. So, try rebooting your gaming device to clear any kind of potential system glitch.
However, this trick may not come in handy to some affected players, and if you’re one of them, try following other methods mentioned below.
2. Check Network Connection
Make sure to check out your internet connection whether it’s running well or not. Sometimes it can also possible that your network connection is either not stable enough or have some speed-related issues whatsoever. If you’re using a wired (ethernet) connection then try switching to the Wi-Fi network or vice versa to cross-check the issue.
3. Power Cycle Your Networking Device
Performing a power cycle to your networking device such as a Wi-Fi router can easily fix networking-related glitches or cache data issues in most scenarios. To do this:
- Power off the router first and let the LED indicators turn off completely.
- Now, unplug the power cord of the router from the power source as well as from the router itself.
- Wait for around a minute or so and then plug back the power cord in.
- Finally, turn on the router, and check for the internet connectivity problem again.
4. Check Dead By Daylight Server Status
According to plenty of affected players, it seems that there is a server outage problem happening in the background in some regions that may also cause several issues like server connectivity, login-related problem, etc.
If your internet connection is stable and fast enough & you’re feeling that there is no problem at your end then make sure to check out the Dead By Daylight server status on the Down Detector page.
5. Change DNS Addresses
Whether you’re using a PC or console, if you’re still facing the Dead By Daylight error code 411 continuously then make sure to change the DNS server addresses on the Wi-Fi router settings page. You can change the DNS addresses on your computer but only if you’re using a wired (ethernet) connection, obviously.
Whereas if you’re using a gaming console then you can do the same on your console’s networking settings page too. In that case, you don’t need to change anything on the router’s admin panel.
Just use the Google DNS addresses and save the changes to check whether the problem has been fixed or not. All you need is to simply input 22.214.171.124 as the Primary DNS (DNS 1) and 126.96.36.199 as the Secondary DNS (DNS 2) from the networking setup page. Once done, save changes, and try restarting the device or router. Then check if the error code is still bothering you or not.
