At the time of this article's publication, Monday, Dec. 13, 2021, at 2pm, Roblox is down due to service disruption issues—players attempting to access any Roblox experiences are likely running into a 400 Bad Request error. Is this a connection error, and how do you fix it? Continue reading below to find out.
Connection Time Out Error
A connection timed out error typically indicates that either Roblox is having issues as a whole, whether that means that the platform has routine maintenance or that their server is down, or that the user attempting to access Roblox is facing their own poor internet connection issues.
An error caused by Roblox can unfortunately not be fixed by a user—instead, your best bet is to regularly check the Roblox status page for updates on the issue. If you believe that your internet connection is causing the error, in that case, we'd suggest disconnecting and reconnecting to your wifi and then restarting your router if the problem continues.
400 Bad Request Error
To put it simply, a Bad Request error appears when a user is trying to access a Roblox page, and the Roblox servers read the request as invalid or incorrect. Because of this, the request fails. This error often appears because the content you're trying to reach no longer exists, meaning there's no valid or correct page to access.
However, in some cases, the Roblox servers experience an issue that causes all requests to be read incorrectly. Every page that a user attempts to access is falsely labeled as invalid and is no longer accessible. Unfortunately, only Roblox can fix this issue—there's nothing that can be done from a user perspective to help the situation.
As mentioned above, we'd suggest keeping an eye on Roblox's server status page when outages like this occur. In the meantime, check out our article on what games to play when Roblox is down.
