How To Fix the Minecraft error code drowned?

The approaches to solving these problems should also be different according to the errors that you are facing. We will also try to explain these in the simplest words possible so that it is easy for you to follow even if you do not have any technical knowledge.

Fix 1: Check your internet connection

Whenever you are playing a game online or a game that needs to have a constant connection to the main server, you should always check the internet connection in case of an error.

There can be many different issues that can cause internet trouble. Some of them are.

  • Router problems
  • Modem problems
  • Connecting wire problems
  • Device update issues

Make sure that the internet service provider you are using has the server up and running and that you do not have problems with any components above.

If your internet connection is working fine, we should then move to the other issues.

Fix 2: Check your login credentials

Since this problem mainly affects the log-in, there might be a problem with the credentials that you are using to log in.

There are so many accounts that we handle these days that if you are using different passwords for all of them, then you can easily forget the correct one when you need it.

In this case, you can make a special folder storing all your credentials with password protection. Make sure that you do not enter the wrong credentials again and again as this can lead to an account ban on the grounds of suspicious activity.

If you have no recollection of what your password was, you can simply go to the forgot password link and reset the password.

Fix 3: Temporary or permanent ban on account

Of you do not follow the community guidelines set by Minecraft to ensure a better user experience on the platform, you might end up with a temporary ban on your account.

Depending on the severity of the behavior and in some cases, also the frequency of the offense, you might even end up with a permanent ban.

Make sure that you always follow the guidelines and follow respectable communication with others on the platform to make sure that this does not happen to you.

Fix 4: Try using a different platform

You can play Minecraft on a variety of platforms and it is not necessary to always use this on Windows.

You can also play on Playstation, and Nintendo Switch and there are many more options available depending upon the devices that you own.

If you are experiencing trouble on one platform, you can contribute it to the glitch in that particular platform if you can log in after you have switched the platform.

Fix 5: Restart Minecraft

Many solutions from different users mention a common fix. This is to restart Minecraft and then try again.

Sometimes, the cache that is designed to help pages load faster, acts as a disaster when it occupies memory and causes errors.

Close Minecraft and then clear cache and cookies on the platform that you are using to play the game. This will clear the too much backed up information related to the sign-in. Then you should restart Minecraft.

If you notice that this has solved your problem, then you should make it a habit to clear cache and cookies on your platform regularly.

Fix 6: The Minecraft server is down

If too many players are online at the same time, then it can cause a game server to crash. Minecraft operates on very technologically advanced software and they have a great technical team for backup. This does not happen very often that the server crashes due to traffic but no platform is immune to this.

You can check if the other players are also experiencing this problem and usually you will see this on the community discussions if the server goes down.

In this scenario, it is prudent to wait for the technical team to get the issue resolved as there is nothing you can do except raise a support ticket anyway.

Fix 7: Log out from other devices

If you have logged into a single account from many devices, it is possible that the server will recognize this as a suspicious login attempt.

In this situation, you must log out of the account from other devices and then try to log in from the platform or device that you intend to. When this is the only device that you are logging in from, it might work.

If it does work, then make sure you log out on the platforms that you do not intend to use.

Fix 8: Contact the Minecraft support

If none of the options above work for you and you are still looking at the error code Drowned, you might have a deeper technical issue.

It is possible that if you try to solve this on your own, you might make this situation worse. Therefore, in such cases, it is wise that you contact user support or ask a question in the online community.
