Have you ever tried to join a friend in Roblox, only to be greeted by the frustrating “Attempted to teleport to a place that is restricted” error code 773? As a Roblox player, I know how annoying this can be when you just want to play with your friends.
In this blog post, I’ll walk you through exactly what this error means and some possible fixes for Roblox to get you back into the game.
What Does Roblox Error Code 773 Mean?
The “Attempted to teleport to a place that is restricted” error pops up when Roblox blocks you from accessing a specific game or location within the platform. Each place in Roblox has its own permissions set by the creator, and error 773 indicates that the place your friend is in has restrictions enabled that prevent you from joining.
This could be for a few different reasons:
- The game creator has set a maximum number of players and the server is currently full
- The place is in a private mode that requires access permission
- There is an age restriction on the place that you don’t meet
- You have been specifically banned or blocked from that game
So in summary, error 773 means you are trying to access a place in Roblox that you don’t currently have permission to enter. It’s not a problem on your end, but rather the game’s configurations that are blocking you out.
Possible Fixes and Workarounds for Roblox Error Code 773
Here are a few things you can try to get around the error in Roblox:
Make Sure You Meet Age and Other Restrictions on Roblox
Double check that you meet the minimum age and any other restrictions set on the place. For age limits, you can update your birth date in your Roblox account settings. If the game has a maximum player limit, try waiting until a spot opens up.
Ask Permission from the Game Creator on Roblox
Some places are set to “private” mode which requires getting access directly from the creator. You’ll need to contact the owner of the game and request that they add your username to the permitted player list.
Try Joining Roblox on a Mobile Device
I’ve found that sometimes mobile Roblox apps don’t enforce age restrictions as strictly as the desktop site. Attempt joining the game on a mobile device and see if it lets you bypass the error.
Join Your Friend in Another Roblox Game First
Have your friend join you in a different, public game. Once you are both in the same server, have them try teleporting to the restricted place again while grouped up. Being directly grouped with someone sometimes gives you permission to follow them.
Reset Your Roblox App Cookies and Cache
Try clearing your Roblox browser cookies and cache entirely. Sometimes teleport restrictions can get “stuck” due to cached data. Resetting it forces a fresh check.
Use a VPN to Change Your Location
VPN services can mask your real location and assign you a different IP address. Connect to a VPN server in another city or country and then try joining the restricted place. This tricks Roblox into thinking you are accessing it from an unblocked area.
Here’s a list of premium VPN services you can try:
Wait the Roblox Game Out
Places with full servers or that are temporarily offline/closed may trigger error 773 even if you normally have access. Be patient and try again later. The teleport fail is likely a temporary issue.
When All Else Fails, Contact Roblox Customer Support
I recommend opening a support ticket with Roblox directly if none of the above fixes work and you believe the restrictions are unfair or unwarranted. The Roblox team can look into why you are blocked from that specific game and re-enable permissions for your account if appropriate.
Let me know in the comments if any of these fixes worked to resolve your teleport issues or if you have discovered any other solutions!
