SnowRunner is a demanding and challenging game. It is a hardcore truck simulator that tests you in every terrain. You need to pay attention to a lot of things in this game. Stuff like headlights for visibility, the speed at which your tires are turning, if you are going up or down into a bog, the fuel you have, and the location and weight of some of the load you are carrying. All of these aspects of the game require your attention, careful planning, and a lot of patience. This is despite the many game-breaking errors that come from hosting a mod store. Well, many have reported encountering error code 2 in SnowRunner, which is why we have shared this guide featuring details of the same.
Snowrunner’s mod store is, to put it plainly, a mess. It is a patch to the mod.io website, which hosts the mods natively. It is a lot easier to link up to the website with your Steam or installed launcher account and have the mods added that way. If you really do want to browse the game storefront itself, be ready to encounter a few errors and restarts. This is all part and parcel of having an easy-to-access but badly designed mod page.
Snowrunner error 2: How to fix it?
Error 2 in SnowRunner is an internal system error. What does this mean? Well, there is an issue with your game. It is more than likely caused by one of the mods you installed, which has been stored in the wrong place or in the wrong way. But here is the catch. Since the issue is not with the mod itself or the mod browser, you have to manually troubleshoot it. Since you cannot play with corrupted mods without risking losing your game, you will need to step in and fix it.
How to solve the issue then?
To put it plainly, you cannot. You need to wait for the developers to patch it before the issue sorts itself out. The developers do recommend that you manually uninstall each and every mod you have subscribed to and resubscribe to see where the issue is. This for some people (clearly like us with 109 installed mods), is not a viable option. Short of this, you can even try a full reinstall of the game and there is a chance the issue will not be sorted out. Without developer support, it is almost impossible to solve this issue if it happens.
The only known way to solve this (thanks to a Reddit thread) is to move the documents folder location. Since the mods are usually installed in a common folder (typically it is C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My Games\SnowRunner\base\Mods\.modio\), an issue here tends to cascade to the game. If you move the documents folder, you can solve this issue without having to wait for a dev patch. We would like to point out that this is very rare and you are more than likely going to have better luck waiting for the developers to step in.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that you need to make sure that you allow cloud sync since the mods are most likely to be installed in your OneDrive folder. After this, the issue should no longer exist.
