Deceit is a multiplayer first person shooter game that will put your instincts to the test. As a player, you wake up in a shelter to the sound of an unknown voice surrounded by five people.


He discovers that a third of his group is infected with a virus. The only question is: who will flee?

Cheating is a fun and challenging game, but players report that it is also affected by various technical problems.

Luckily, the game developers have released a helpful post that explains how to fix the most common cheat errors players may face.

Replace local saved files

How to fix this problem on the computer:

• Close the Uplay application.
Open the taskbar by clicking the small arrow to the right of the taskbar and make sure the client is not running in the background.
• Make a backup copy of the storage folder by copying it to a safe place and then deleting it.
You can find the folder in the following locations:

Uplay or Epic game launcher
C: Program Files (x86) Ubisoft Ubisoft Game Launcher savegames 635

C: Program Files (x86) Ubisoft Ubisoft Game Launcher savegames 1843

• Start Uplay in ADMINISTRATOR MODE and disable the CLOUD SAVING option.
• Start of the game.
• Set up an operator load in the game and complete the situation so that an automatic save can be created.
• Exit the game and reactivate the CLOUD SAVINGS OPTIONS.
• Restart the traps.
You will be asked what storage you want to use. Select the local storage option. This will also update the cloud storage.

Install the latest drivers


Sometimes problems with Deceit and other games can arise if the drivers are not up to date. The problems are usually caused by video card drivers. So please update them first.

You can download the necessary drivers basically by visiting the video card manufacturer's web portal and searching for your model.

Regardless, sometimes other drivers can cause this problem. To fix this problem, it is recommended that you update all other outdated drivers.

Authorize the game through your system's antivirus / firewall.


Your system's antivirus and firewalls play a fundamental role in protecting your system and your data. You may encounter this error when the game was unable to communicate with its servers because it was blocked by antivirus / firewall applications. Because of this, temporarily disabling your antivirus / firewall applications or allowing the game through antivirus / firewall applications can fix the problem.

Warning: Do this at your own risk, as disabling or adding exceptions in the antivirus / firewall application may expose your system to threats such as viruses, Trojans, etc.

  • Disable your antivirus software temporarily.
  • Disable your firewall. Make sure Windows Defender doesn't take over your antivirus / firewall role. If so, turn it off or allow games through Windows Defender. Also check the quarantine of your antivirus to see the files related to the game.
  • If you enable the game through security apps, you will need to add the following file (where C is your system drive):
  • C: SteamLibrary steamapps common Deceit bin win_x64 Deceit.exe
  • Afterward, make sure there are no bugs in the game (and hopefully, too).
