Veteran Rainbow Six Siege players have likely encountered a few bugs back in the day, and error code 3-0x0001b could be one of them. Here’s how to fix it.
How to fix error code 3-0x0001b in Rainbow Six Siege
This error code indicates that players have been disconnected from the Rainbow Six Siege servers. Ubisoft encourages players to check if there is any maintenance that is causing this. An easy way to do this would be to check the game’s official Twitter and other social media pages.

If the servers are up, then the internet connection of the players should be checked. Restarting the router, double checking the WiFi connection or Ethernet cable, and even restarting the console or PC are all steps that can be taken to fix the problem. If everything works then there should be no problem getting into Siege and jumping into a match if the servers are up as well.
How to fix error code 3-0x0001b on Xbox and PlayStation
The Rainbow Six Siege error code can potentially be fixed on the Xbox family of consoles by enabling port forwarding. This is what Ubisoft suggests.
- PDU: 3074, 6150, 10000-10099
PlayStation gamers can do something similar, but the ports are different for Sony’s platform. This is what Ubisoft claims to use for PlayStation owners.
- tcp: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480.
- PDU: 3478, 3479, 3658, 6115, 10000-10099.
Port forwarding is a fairly easy process to learn, but should only be done after all other options have been exhausted. Most commonly, the 3-0x0001b error is a problem from Ubisoft’s endgame.
