What is the EQU8 error in Splitgate?
The EQU8 is an anti-cheat system for multiplayer games. Many popular video game companies use it to ward off cheaters and illegal mod users trying to disrupt the normal gameplay. Splitgate’s developers, 1047 games are partners with EQU8 and EQU8’s anti-cheat system powers Splitgate. You are getting an error because of an internal conflict between your system, the game, and the anti-cheat software.
The full error message shown to most players is, “You were kicked from the match for suspicious activity.
EQU8 Error Code:00×23002460090798”. Most players are perplexed since they haven’t used any cheats or mods in the game. Splitgate is a free-to-play game and hence, will attract a lot of hackers. An anti-cheat system was obviously necessary to put a check on the disruptors. But, since the recent Season 0 update of Splitgate (as reported by some players), the EQU8 error has stopped legit players from entering matches. Some players said that they could play the Team Deathmatch mode but were unable to play ranked matches, Team Rumble Playlist, and a few other modes. Here’s a Reddit thread that discusses the topic.
When errors like this pop up, there will always be some rumored, unofficial fixes.

Nobody knows why this error is happening, and 1047 games haven’t acknowledged the issue officially as yet. Hence, there is no fix yet. However, we are guessing that this mess will be fixed soon by another patch.
