DayZ error code 9 has been cropping up amidst the release of update 1.04 today, marking the latest in a line of server issues that have plagued Bohemia Interactive‘s open-world survival title. If you’re one of many players who are running into this issue, then this article may help, as we’ve been doing a bit of digging about the issue and any possible solutions.

DayZ Error Code 9 -What Is It?

DayZ error code 9 has cropped up numerous times over the past few years, and seems to be a well-known issue among PS4 and Xbox One owners. The problem results in a blank server list and error code 9 appears on-screen, preventing players from getting into any games. It’s also possible for this issue to kick you out of a game you’re currently in, too.

DayZ Error Code 9 – Possible Solutions

From what we can gather, restarting your console can fix the DayZ error code 9 problem, as does rebooting your Internet connection. None are guaranteed to work, as in some cases the server was experiencing issues until the problem was fixed.

In this latest case, the reason for the problem is likely due to the fact the servers are down to prepare for the aforementioned patch.

DayZ was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2019, following a successful launch on PC in late 2018. The game sold over three million copies during its Early Access period, and takes place in the fictional post-Soviet Republic of Chernarus, where most of the population have been transformed into zombie-like beings known as the infected.

Here’s the lowdown on the game straight from the horse’s mouth:

DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic, open world sandbox online game where each one of 60 players on a server follows a single goal – to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built-in tutorials or help given to you. Every decision matters – with no save games, and no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and start over.
