Types of 502 Error in Minecraft

  1. 502 Bad Gateway error

This happens when there is a poor network connection between Minecraft servers and your client. One of the most popular reasons for it is that servers are down for maintenance, and all you need is to wait. However, if there are real problems, you have these solutions:

  • Restart your gaming system. It is the most popular solution for most problems. And still, it is the fastest and most effective way to fix a problem.
  • Update Minecraft. This reason occurs when there is a difference in Minecraft versions between you and the server. To update, go to the Microsoft Store – Library and update your app.
  • Disconnect from VPN and Proxy. If your router is overloaded, it decreases download speed, so that you won’t be able to connect to the server.
