GPS spoofing is a technique in which players use third-party software to trick their mobile’s GPS into thinking they are in a different location than the actual one. If you have been playing Monster Hunter Now and have seen Error 6-4 pop up on your screen during your playthrough, chances are that the game thinks you are GPS spoofing. This is a simple yet very granular method of cheating the systems of Monster Hunter Now, and therefore, the developers have tried their hand at banning this practice.
While no one knows for sure why this error occurs, it is reported to be popping out mostly on devices that have GPS spoofers equipped. So, the primary step to take to avoid this error code is disabling any GPS spoofing application. Since Monster Hunter Now is a thriving AR multiplayer game similar to the likes of Pokemon Go, GPS spoofers seriously hurt the image and long-term viability of the game. That is why the developers have taken drastic steps to reduce GPS spoofing and cheating in-game. If this error occurs in the game, don’t worry; it is only a soft ban. It has no effect on your gameplay or account in any other way thus far. Keep reading to find out how to avoid this error message in the game.
Monster Hunter Now Network Error 6-4: How to fix it?
The soft ban thus far simply shows a message that ‘The Monster may have moved from this place’ and prompts you to return to the main menu or open the world map again. While this in itself does not affect your account or gameplay in any way, it might cause issues if you keep seeing it when you go hunting for monsters as well. Since this is an issue that players started experiencing after the most recent update of the game went live, there are no official fixes for it yet. However, there have been reports from players who encountered the same issue even when they hadn’t used spoofers at any point during their in-game journey. So, if you are among those players, here are a few workarounds you can try:
1). Make sure your game is updated
One of the most obvious workarounds for fixing such error codes in multiplayer games is to make sure that the game is updated. Being on an older version of the game can trigger this error, even if you are not cheating or using any GPS spoofers. To avoid it, update the game via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
2). Make sure your internet is stable
This is another important aspect of this game. Making sure that your connection to the internet is stable and strong is important to run the game without any issues. If you are someone who has choppy internet, this could be the cause behind this error. So, ensure you have network stability and then launch the game.
3). Restart the game
Restarting the game can force the mobile device’s GPS to refresh and make sure your location is consistent. This can help solve this error. It will also deal with small issues on the server side when you restart the game.
4). Claim rewards after midnight local time
This is a daily rewards system that refreshes at midnight every day. If you claim the rewards after 00:00 local time, the chances of encountering the network error during the opening of the Starter Chest reward will be next to none. So, make sure you do this.
5). Wait for an official fix
Since this is a server-side issue and there is nothing that can be done on your end, you will just have to wait for an official fix from the developers of this game to release a fix soon. Well, as stated by various sources, the developers are aware of this bug, so maybe a fix is on the way. However, we can’t be sure, for now.
