How to resolve UNIFORM-01 error in XDEFIANT (Fix)

UNIFORM-01 error can occur for several reasons, but most commonly it appears to show itself when relating to connective issues between you in the game. Most likely, you're seeing this error appear because the servers for XDefiant are having issues or are being overloaded. However, there are af few things you can try that might fix the issue for you outright.

Reset your Ubisoft Password

This is a strange solution, but one Ubisoft themselves recommended in the past for this exact error. Regardless of your platform, log in to your Ubisoft account and try resetting it. Then, attempt to connect to the XDefiant servers and see if you can get through. While I've heard no confirmed reports of this working, I would not be surprised if does. These sorts of things can be oddly fickle at times.

Retry the Connection

While this may seem obvious, reattempting to connect with the XDefiant servers may let you bypass this error, especially if the issue is actually the servers. While there's no explicitly stated "retry" button present, just hitting confirm will retry the connection for you.

Restart XDefiant

Sometimes, a clean restart can solve even the most annoying of problems. Considering how much a nuisance this nasty error is, a restart may be enough. Sometimes your game client is just out of date and that can be a reason why you can't connect to servers. A restart should prompt an update, if there is one, but even if not, there's no harm in trying it.

Wait for Ubisoft to fix the issue

Unfortunately, if you've gotten to this point and are still seeing the UNIFORM-01 error, then you'll need to wait for Ubisoft to fix the issue on their end. The good news is that if you're here, the problem likely has nothing to do with you, and all you need to do is be patient. Don't worry. Ubisoft won't let this error last long, because it's preventing players from actually playing their new-fangled game. What game company wants that?
