The freshest shooter from the Halo family gained much recognition upon its release in 2015. Now, millions of players around the world are on a mission of leading Master Chief against evil hordes of alien enemies.

However, fighting opponents is not the biggest problem some players face while playing this game. Namely, numerous users recently reported that the multiplayer mode in Halo 5: Guardians doesn’t work.

Check for services outage

In the case Halo 5 or Xbox Live services are down, there’s no way you can play the game so wait. While service outages don’t happen very often, they do go down from time to time and that’s when you need to be patient.
