  1. Connection to host was lost (solo campaign)


    Can someone please explain why I can't play solo campaign on my Xbox One S? Whenever I try to start a new game it says something like ERROR - Connection to host was lost. Why would I be connected to a host for a single player solo campaign mission? The
    Microsoft Ambassador told me to uninstall and reinstall.. I've already done that and that didn't work. I'm signed in with my Microsoft account. What requirements need to be met for this to work? It shouldn't be this hard. Thanks guys.

    :)

    Just bought new One S bundle with GOW4 and can't play it

    I get the same thing... Whenever I try to play a solo campaign it says ERROR connection lost and won't start the game... What a bunch of bull. They just say to uninstall and reinstall a 65 GB game. Not that convenient of a solution that does absolutely
    nothing Microsoft.

    Halo 4, Deletion of Campaign Progress

    Well this just happened to me too. I lost my solo and coop campaign progression even though on waypoint it says I have done mission 1 to 5 solo and coop(taking my time for the challenges) on legendary. Reading what the previous guys wrote I think it's a
    lost cause.

    Animal companions are a nice touch for solo campaigns or solo game modes. Like fallout, it adds to the story and allows you to feel mor connected to the game.

    Is Halo: The Master Chief Collection completely broken?

    I have only been able to play in a few games and when me and a friend party up every single time it puts us on opposite teams, so nice. We even tried to play some campaign together and it wouldn't work. He was the leader/host and it kicked him out every
    time saying "lost connection to host". How do you loose connection to yourself : )
