Error messages in Apex Legends have a habit of popping up at the worst times, alerting you about a problem before, during, or after a game.
In most cases, error messages will only appear once before fading away. Every error isn’t the same, though, and sometimes a server blunder or hardware issue can cause your game to stop working.
Some of the most infamous errors include the Party Not Ready, Party Leader Quit, and Out of Sync with Server messages. Here’s what you can do to fix them.
Party Not Ready
The Party Not Ready message generally appears when a player is stopped from entering a game. Most of the time, it just pops up randomly. But thankfully there are several ways to fix the issue.
The first and simplest way to fix it is to restart your game. If you joined another player’s lobby, you can also try leaving it and inviting your friends to your newly-created lobby to see if that works instead.
If you aren’t playing with friends, however, and those two options aren’t fixing the issue, you might need to find an alternative fix. Try to access the Game Menu or Settings Menu (which can be located in the lower right corner of your screen) and click the “Return to Main Menu” option. This will take you back to Apex’s main menu where you can try to make a lobby once more.
If these issues still persist after trying all of the quick fixes, you may be forced to either restart your game client on PC or the game on console. If that keeps failing, it might be best to reinstall the game onto your chosen device. This should be only be done as a last resort, however.
