Minecraft today is a phenomenon in itself. Given how long it has stuck around, you really can’t term it as just another sandbox-type game. However, as popular and entertaining a game as it is, that doesn’t set it free from errors. In this article, we will be discussing what these errors are and how, if you’re facing them, you can fix them. Here are some specific causes and fixes:

  • Minecraft Error Creeper: A network issue has prevented your sign-in. Make sure that your connection is stable and check that it is configured properly.
  • Minecraft Error Crossbow: A client error occurred during sign-in. Try restarting the game and/or letting it idle for a couple of minutes before trying again.
  • Minecraft Error Glowstone: Sign-in could not authenticate with all services. Try restarting the game or waiting for services to resolve their issues and try again.
  • Minecraft Error Drowned: This means you’ve encountered an unknown error during sign-in. Please fully close Minecraft, reset your device, and attempt to log in again.
  • Minecraft Error Ghast: Conflicting credentials cache. On Windows and Xbox, try signing out of Xbox Live, and back in again. On Switch, try the “Clear Account Credentials” button in Settings > Profile.
  • Minecraft Error Haybale: This indicates an issue with Xbox authorization. Please make sure the Xbox app is up to date and try signing out, then signing back in.

1] Check for Minecraft updates on your PC

If you’re facing this issue with your Minecraft game, it’s best to check if there are any updates available for the game. Companies are made aware of the bugs in their running software and tend to fix them periodically. There’s a chance that you won’t face this issue in an updated version of the game. Here’s how you can check if an update is available:

  • Search for the Microsoft Store in the search bar of the Start Menu
  • From the left side panel, click on the Library icon.
  • Click on Get Updates and see if you have the latest version of Minecraft installed on your PC.
  • If not, update it and see if the error is still there.

2] Clear your Minecraft sign-in data

Several players of the game have suggested that clearing the sign-in data from the game can help fix the issue. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Launch Minecraft and go to Settings
  • Here, select Profile and further select Clear Account Sign-in data
  • Scroll down that page and click on Delete Old Content Logs
  • Confirm the subsequent prompt by clicking on Delete Now

Once done, relaunch the game and check if the issue has been fixed.

3] Try forced sign in

Another possible cause behind such error codes is an overcrowded server. In that case, persistently keep trying to sign into the game. There’s a slick chance it works, but this method is way easier than the rest.

4] Modify your DNS Settings

If it is your ISP that is conflicting with the game’s configurations, your best bet is to change the DNS settings. Default DNS servers are, reportedly, slow and thus, many people prefer to be hosted on Google Public DNS server. Here’s how you can make the change as well:

  • Open the Run dialog box with the Win + ‘R’ key combination and enter ‘ncpa.cpl’ in the empty space. This will open the Network Connections page
  • Locate your current Network Adapter and right-click on it’s option > click on Properties
  • Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Click on Properties
  • Enable the Use the following DNS server addresses option. Now, change the Preferred DNS server to 8.8.8.8 and the Alternate DNS server to 8.8.4.4

Click on Ok to save these changes and restart Minecraft to check if the error persists.

5] Uninstall and reinstall Minecraft completely

Your last resort is to get rid of the game version running on your PC and install a fresh copy of it. Here’s how that can be done:

  • Open Windows Settings and click on Apps
  • Now, visit Apps and Features and look at all the installed programs on your PC
  • Search for Minecraft Launcher and further select to uninstall it (You’ll be guided through the uninstallation process)
  • Delete the cache files for the game from the File Explorer. To do so, type %AppData% in the address bar and press enter
  • You’ll then find a Minecraft folder among the list
  • Right-click on it and further select to delete it

Visit Minecraft’s official website and re-download the game. You’re not likely to face the same issue with a fresh version of the game, provided none of the aforementioned fixes worked for you.

6] Other suggestions

  • You need to also ensure that your internet connection is stable. You could also sign out of all Minecraft accounts, close Minecraft, restart PC, restart the router, and try.
  • Some reports have also suggested this error can be caused by users trying to log in from several devices at once, so it’s best to stick with one device if you’re doing that.

We hope this was of help and that you’re not having any troubles signing into Minecraft anymore!
