Shatterline: How to Fix Error Code SESSION-09-25

If you are having trouble with the SESSION-09-25 error in Shatterline, don’t worry! This article will explain why this error occurs and how you can fix it.

Shatterline is a new Free-to-Play FPS game currently in an early access state on Steam. The game currently has a roguelike Co-Op mode called Expedition and several traditional game modes such as TDM, Conquest, Plant-the-bomb, and Escort.

The game has a very satisfactory shooting mechanism, resembling a lot of Call of Duty and Battlefield. However, the characters or Operatives in the game have distinct abilities similar to VALORANT and Rainbow Six Siege, categorized into 4 different classes.

With time, the game is gaining popularity in the FPS gaming community. However, it is not free from flaws as an early access game. As a result, players are getting a peculiar error called “SESSION-09-25” preventing them from playing the game.

    • To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, right-click the Ethernet interface and select Properties.

  5. Click Advanced and select the DNS tab. If there are any DNS server IP addresses listed there, write them down for future reference, and remove them from this window.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Select Use the following DNS server addresses. If there are any IP addresses listed in the Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server, write them down for future reference.
  8. Replace those addresses with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers:
    • For IPv4: and/or
    • For IPv6: 2001:4860:4860::8888 and/or 2001:4860:4860::8844.
    • For IPv6-only: you can use Google Public DNS64 instead of the IPv6 addresses in the previous point.
  9. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Test your new settings.
  10. Repeat the procedure for additional network connections you want to change.
