What causes Error 0x30001 in Hunt Showdown?

This error is often caused by the game's server being overloaded by players. The game's developer Crytek has implemented a player cap on their servers, and when that limit is exceeded, several players are kicked from the game immediately and sent back to the main menu. This error can also be caused by using Steam's "family sharing" feature, which Hunt: Showdown does not support. Each player must own a copy of the game on their own individual account to play Hunt: Showdown without encountering the error 0x30001.
