Roblox Error Code 522

The online gaming platform is famous for letting people add their own games to the platform. However, it is also infamous for the error codes that it has on a regular basis.

Users have reported many bugs on the platform and this is a problem when you are trying to enjoy uninterrupted gameplay.

We can unfortunately not completely guarantee that you will never face an error code on the platform but we can definitely solve the problem by applying different fixes.

In this article, we will take a look at the Roblox error code 522.

The error code 522 on Roblox occurs when the connection is timed out. You will also read a prompt with the error code that clearly says, Connection Timed Out. It can also occur when you are trying to contact a user that is no longer on the game.

Let’s take a look at the suggested solutions for the same in the next section.

How To Fix Roblox error code 522?

Solutions to the error code are very highly dependent on the reasons for the error code. We will discuss the solutions in detail with the reasons in this section.

Fix 1: Check your internet connection

The internet connection you are using is the most important thread in getting connected to the servers.

If the connection is timed out, the first thing that you should do is, check the speed of your internet connection.

Do not be fooled by the other apps working fine as they might not need as much of a stable speed internet connection as Roblox.

To make sure that the connection is stable, Google an internet speed meter. The speed meter will provide you with details about the upload and download speeds on your connection and some tools will also tell you the details of what functions will work on your device considering the internet speed.

Fix 2: The Roblox server is down

This is the second most common problem in this situation. If the Roblox server is accessed by too many players at once, the server might crash.

Sometimes the server is also taken down deliberately for maintenance of the server. However, in this case, it is mostly pre-informed.

If the server is down, you can make sure of the same by accessing a down detector website. If the server is indeed down, there is nothing to be done on your part. Only the developmental team at Roblox can take care of the issue.

Fix 3: Your internet Firewall is blocking access to Roblox

The network firewall on your device is a line of defense for internet browsing. It is a very smart decision to keep it always turned on.

However, sometimes the firewall takes extra precautions and blocks the platforms that are not actually that harmful.

You can find the platform on the firewall blocklist and remove it to make sure that you can establish a connection to the Roblox servers.

Fix 4: The DNS settings are incorrectly configured

The DNS settings or the Domain Name Settings on the device are very important for the platforms on the internet to identify your location.

If the DNS settings are not correctly configured,  your connection might be rejected and you will not be able to contact the server.

The easy option is to change the DNS settings on the device to custom and your problem will be solved most of the time.

Fix 5: The user that you are wishing to contact has left the game

If you are playing in a multiplayer version, then the users you are playing with should be online at the same time as you.

If you are trying to contact a user that has already left the game, you will need to quit the multiplayer game and reconnect with some other player to continue gameplay.

Fix 6: Contact the Roblox Game support

Roblox might not have the best graphics in the market but they do have a team that supports you when something goes wrong on the platform.

You can contact the game support team if none of the above fixes have worked for you. 

You can also ask a question on the player support forums. Other users can step in to help you there with their own experiences.

To conclude

Generally, the error code 522 on Roblox is a code that shows up when the player that you are trying to connect with has already left the game.

We have mentioned the solutions to this as well as some other reasons that can also cause the error code 522 on Roblox.

Hopefully, this was helpful.

Happy Gaming!!
