The problem with this error in particular is that you can not fathom what’s the reason as there is no error message. So, if you are seeing Minecraft Realms Error Code 429 on your Windows 11/10 PC then use the solutions mentioned here to resolve the issue.
Why does Minecraft Realms keep saying 429?
Error Code 429 comes with no message, but it means, Request Limit Reached, which, needless to say, is a server issue. It occurs when your system sends a ton of requests to the Minecraft server, which, according to their security policy classify your request as DDoS attacks. You may not send all these requests manually, but it can be an error from your side that’s causing sending of the requests.
