Rocket League players will be familiar with the Error Code 58 issue since it's been seen on PC and consoles as well. This is something you'd see when failing to connect to a server. The description from Psyonix is that Error Code 58 is “No reservation found” which simply means your game is having trouble connecting to games.
There are three main causes for this issue which all relate to there being an issue with online play:
- Server outage
- User is playing with an outdated version of Rocket League
- A network issue
This is usually a simple problem to fix. However, you may need to try several of these methods. Another crucial thing to check is the official Rocket League servers. If those are offline due to maintenance or update then you will be unable to connect to games.
Without further ado, here are the methods for fixing error 58 in Rocket League:
Method 1: Verify the Integrity of Your Game Files
The first thing to try is verifying the game files which is a PC solution for Steam users.
This is common for Steam users so it shouldn't be unfamiliar but if you've never needed to do this yet then this is how you verify game files:
- When Steam is open, find Rocket League in your Library
- Right-click on rocket League and click Properties
- Navigate to Local Files tab and click Verify Integrity of Game Files button
After this, wait for the validation to complete. This will compare the game files on your PC to the ones on the Steam servers. If something is different then Steam will repair the problem for you and your save data will not be affected.
On the other hand, if you're using Epic Games, unfortunately we have been unable to inspect and repair the integrity of the game file, which means you will need to delete the game and install it again. Don't worry, your save files will not be deleted.
Method 2: Adding Exceptions to the Anti-virus and Disabling the Firewall
For PC, a common problem with online games is the antivirus not allowing the game to connect to the server. When it comes to Steam games, the antivirus and firewall both probably have exceptions in place already but this isn't always the case.
Each antivirus is different so we advise you also take a look online to see how this is done for your specific software. However, the process is generally the same. You need to go to the Settings.
The antivirus is not usually the problem, but this is good to come back to if you've done everything else on this list and still have problems. The firewall is more likely to be the source of the issue.
The Windows Defender Firewall can have exceptions added so it's a good idea to check if Rocket League and Steam are already included. These things usually happen automatically, but sometimes you need to manually allow certain apps and programs.
Here's how to tell Firewall to allow Rocket League to go through:
- Go to the Control Panel
- Find the Windows Firewall section (usually under System and Security)
- Open Allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall
- Scroll through the list and confirm Rocket League has both Private and Public boxes ticked
Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel then find the Windows Firewall area. There will be an option to turn it On and Off. Keep in mind it will most likely be Run as Administrator so if you aren't the PC owner or main account then you'll want to ask that user for permissions to do this.
Method 3: Forward the Rocket League Ports
We have a full-length article on how to do this so we'll be brief going back over it again. Forwarding Rocket League ports can fix ping issues, lag and stability issues in the game. This is such a common problem that a number of other errors, such as error 48, error 71, and error 68 can also be fixed via this method.
Here are the steps:
- First, access the router settings. To do this you need to open a Web browser and in the search bar, enter your personal IP address. This should bring you to the settings menu
- Before being given access, you will be prompted for your login credentials. Enter your username and pbuttword correctly to continue.
- Now you will have access to the router settings and will have the ability to forward any additional ports that are needed. Depending on the system in question, these can vary quite a lot. Here is a quick list of the ones that you will need for each respective system
- Steam: TCP: 27015-27030,27036-27037; UDP: 4380,27000-27031,27036
- Playstation 4: TCP: 1935,3478-3480; UDP: 3074,3478-3479
- Xbox One: TCP: 3074; UDP: 88,500,3074,3544,4500
- Switch: TCP: 6667,12400,28910,29900,29901,29920; UDP: 1-65535
After you have successfully added the necessary ports, restart the WiFi system and your console.

Method 4: Reinstall the Game
This is a good solution for all platforms and is one that's commonly used to try to fix any problem with Rocket League or other games. Reinstalling the game ensures that there's nothing wrong with the installed game. Sometimes issues can occur suddenly, due to an improper update or some other issue.
Reinstalling the game is quite straight forwards.
- Go to the Steam Library
- Find Rocket League
- On Steam right-click the game / on Consoles press the Options button
- Select Manage --> Uninstall / Delete
Once this is done, you simply need to install the game again. On Steam, it should already be in the library, on consoles it can vary, but it should be in the Store.
The fresh game will have the most recent game files from the servers so if there was an issue due to a mismatch then this has fixed it. Additionally, there's no need to worry about losing your saved files, as they haven't been deleted.
Method 5: Restart the Console / PC
While reinstalling the game is a good idea, the thing you want to try is the most simple option but is often highly successful. Just restart the PC or console.
Some users report more success combining other methods listed here with restarting the device as well.
Method 6: Delete Outfox
Outfox might be great for optimizing the gaming network that can help keep your connection stable, reduce lag and lower your overall ping. However, sometimes the program can cause issues with games such as Rocket League.
This is specific only to PC users and only to those who have installed the Outfox program so this can't apply to everyone. If you have it installed, try deleting Outfox and see if it helps.
