Steps to Fix RDR2 Error Code 134 / 149: The Rockstar Games Services are unavailable and Not Verified
A Redditor has mentioned that after getting the same 134 error code on the RDR2 PC game, internet tethering using the mobile to the PC won’t work. But using the mobile hotspot to the PC seems working really fine and the game is launching perfectly. Make sure to update the RDR2 launcher. Meanwhile, another Redditor has mentioned that logging out from the account and restarting and then logging back into the game can fix the error code.
If this method doesn’t work for you, then you can try another possible method to solve the error code 134 or 149 easily. In order to do this:
- You will need to go to the %USERPROFILE%/documents/Rockstar Games/Red Dead Redemption 2 location.
- Then search for the Settings file inside the location.
- Next, you have to delete the folder called Settings.
- Finally, reboot the game and the game should run perfectly. It will create a new settings file by default.
- Additionally, you can verify your RDR2 installed game file whether any file is missing/corrupted or not.
- Disable background running Antivirus software or add an exception for the game manually.
- For the console users: after getting the error code, quickly close the X button on your controller to exit the error notice and immediately press Play again option. By doing it multiple times, in some cases, the game starts running smoothly.
