Solution 3: Turn off Cosmetics, Clothing, and Skins of All the Inventory Items

The use of cosmetics/characters’ clothing and skins is common while playing the game. But if the Steam client could not verify the authenticity of your inventory server, then the error under discussion will be thrown. In this situation, removing cosmetics, character clothing, and skins of all your inventory items may solve the problem.

  1. Open the inventory of your game and de-equip cosmetics, clothing, and skins of all the items (including weapons like guns and knives, etc.). Also, make sure no cosmetics are applied to any of your game characters.
  2. Now restart your Steam client and launch the game to check if the problem is solved.
  3. If not, again open the inventory of your game and equip/de-equip every item one by one (a tedious task if you have a lot of inventory items).

  4. Now restart your Steam client and launch the game to check if the problem is solved.
  5. If not, then check the operation of the game by deleting the crates in the inventory of the game.
  6. If the game is still encountering the issue, check if any market items are pending, if so, remove the market items and then equip/de-equip market items as well to check if the game is clear of the error.
  7. If you are still having issues, then you need to find a trusted Steam account (of a friend or your other account) and trade all of your tradable items to that account.
  8. Once your inventory is clear of all the tradable items, launch the game and check if it is clear of the error. If so, then trade back your inventory items to the account.
  9. If the game is still not clear of the error, then verify the integrity of the game cache (as discussed in solution 2) and de-equip every cosmetic, character clothing, and skin.
  10. Now exit your Steam client and wait for at least two hours.
  11. Then launch the Steam client and game to check if the game is clear of the error.
