These are the things no gamer wants to face when they are in the middle of high-stakes heists, but fortunately, there are a few ways players can remedy some of these issues.

It has been reported that Payday 3 has a Nebula data error. This problem mainly arises due to the account that players create when they first load the game up. The account links to that platform and then causes this error, preventing players from logging into the game.

Players can try to log in to the account that they made on the official website and then go and un-link the platform from the account. Players facing this problem can try it, but it is not certain if this method will work.

Although Starbreeze has said things have gotten better as they have resolved the issue and are working on stabilizing the experience, players still might face these problems and should try to use the above method to resolve them.
