Why are you getting the Mike-01 error in xDefiant?

Upon trying to load into xDefiant, the Mike-01 error may pop up, stating that the Ubisoft servers are unavailable at this time. This could boil down to many factors, as it’s likely that the servers are just fine for other players.

The servers could be overloaded, or you could not be connected to the internet, among other reasons. Members of the xDefiant Discord have conversed about the Mike-01 error and how to fix it, so you’re not alone in this problem. Players have taken to Reddit, too.

The best course of action isn’t to ponder about the whys, however, but to go through the list of potential fixes until you can get into the game and start playing.

Fixes for Mike-01 error for xDefiant

To try and get around the xDefiant Mike-01 error code, follow the list provided and keep refreshing and checking the game until you’re in. If you get to the end of the list and are still experiencing this issue, then you’ll need to take it up with Ubisoft’s support.

Make sure xDefiant is available in your region

This may sound silly, but not all Ubisoft games are available in the same region as others, so it’s always worth double-checking.

Make sure xDefiant’s servers are running

Currently, no Ubisoft website that will give you live updates of xDefiant’s server status, unlike other Ubisoft games. To make sure the servers are operational, reach out to other forums, such as the Reddit or Discord to check if others are playing.

Alternatively, go to the game’s X/Twitter account to see if there are any issues or planned maintenance.

Make sure you’re connected to the internet

Mike-01 may be an issue on your end. The simplest way to check this is to restart both your device and your Wi-Fi router simultaneously, instead of doing individual checks.

Once both are restarted, launch xDefiant again. With all the previous steps considered, you should be able to run the game without Mike-01 rearing its head.

Verify the integrity of xDefiant files

There are many different ways to do this for different platforms, but it’s always rather simple. Verifying the integrity of the files and restarting the game will iron out any quirks and should allow you to play xDefiant.

This is always worth doing, no matter the error you keep running into.

Wait half an hour and try again

In the case of the servers being overloaded, simply waiting and trying again may be a surprising fix. You can determine how long you wait of course, but I’ve skirted connection error by giving the server a little space.

With Mike-01 sorted, you should be able to enjoy the game in peace. If you keep having issues, reach out to Ubisoft’s support.
