If you’re getting the ‘Unable to Summon Cooperator’ message, there are a few things you can try to fix it. The first thing to do is, of course, check your internet connection because you will need to be online and have a good internet speed to bring along another player to fight a boss.

In case the internet is not the issue, restart the game and check if any temporary glitches are resolved that way. And apart from these, here are some more troubleshooting tips that you can try.

Keep Trying to Summon

Especially in busy areas, other players might snatch up summon signs before you can. Keep trying to summon until you’re successful.

The “Shadow of the Erdtree” area can be problematic for summoning because of the higher difficulty of bosses. If it’s an area where you find a particularly tough boss, you just have to be persistent and keep trying. The trick is to be fast, stand near the summoning pool and grab the opportunity among all the players looking for help.

Some Other Things to Try:

  • Make sure there is no password set because this will block you from interacting with random players.
  • If you’re on PC, you can try flushing your DNS or resetting your network adapter.

If none of these solutions work, it’s possible the Elden Ring servers are experiencing issues. You can check online to see if other players are reporting similar problems and wait until the servers are more stable.

While you’re here, be sure to find out how to get to the top right area of the DLC map, how to get the Iris of Grace and Iris of Occultation as well as the trick to repair the lift in Rabbath’s Rise.
