How to fix Genshin Impact Error Code 31-4302

This error isn't affecting everyone, with many players happily exploring Teyvat without issues. As it happens with most error codes in every game, a fix that works for someone isn't 100% guaranteed to work for another player.

Still, there are reports on Reddit that some players managed to get the game running, so it won't hurt if you give it a shot.

The first Genshin Impact error code 31-4302 fix goes like this:

  • Locate your Genshin Impact installation folder
  • Go to the Games folder
  • Run the game directly from the executable file (skipping the launcher)

The second possible fix is the following:

  • Find the Blob_Storage folder and delete it

Here's a third suggestion:

  • Locate your Genshin Impact installation folder
  • Search for x360ce files and delete them if you have any

If none of these fixes work for you, there's no option but to wait for a patch straight from the devs. They are working to solve this problem for every PC player, so hang in there.
