How do I fix XDefiant Practice Zone not working? (Resolved)


    In XDefiant, you can theoretically go to the Practice Zone to try out new weapons and learn the basics. However, many cannot access it, so let’s explain how to fix it.

    How to Fix Grayed Out Practice Zone in XDefiant (Solution)

    When trying to access game modes, you may notice that Practice Mode appears grayed out. There is currently no way to fix this and Ubisoft has also not released or fixed a fix for this issue. There is currently no way to access Practice Zone on PC or Xbox, but if you’re on PlayStation 5, there is a workaround for this.

    To fix this issue on PS5, you will need to start the Practice Zone activity from the XDefiant game menu. To do so, follow these instructions:

    • Start XDefiant first.
    • Then, exit the game and access the PS5 home menu.
    • Press down on the D-pad or left analog stick, after which the XDefiant game menu will appear. Here you’ll see a bunch of Activity cards, including one for the Practice Zone.
    • Press Square on the Activity Card and the game will load directly into Practice Zone mode. That’s all.

    You can also do this process without starting the game first, but I received some errors like UNIFORM-01 error when doing so. Therefore, loading the game first and then starting the practice zone activity should allow you to directly enter the practice zone. It is a fairly simple process, so you will not have any problems.

    Ubisoft has not yet released a fix for this issue, so it appears to be the only way to access the Practice Zone at least for the PS5. There is currently no workaround for PC and Xbox Series X|S, but if there is, we’ll be sure to update this guide.
