Are you wondering how to fix error code Cat in Destiny 2 so you can get back to playing? Destiny 2 is like a bustling metropolis that is always on the move, with people cementing the game as part of their daily lives. Unfortunately, errors are no fun when trying to enjoy spending time in your favorite locations to decompress after a busy day. Thankfully there are ways you can try and sort the error codes you receive upon an attempted login. Here is how to fix the Cat error code in Destiny 2.

Fixing Error Code Cat in Destiny 2

Thankfully, the process of fixing this error code is fairly simple and can be fixed by doing by understanding what the error code Cat error actually means, which has been provided by Bungie:

  • A new update to Destiny is available. If you are seeing this error the first time you launch Destiny, please exit the game and apply the update before relaunching. 

That means all you have to do is install an update file for the game. You will generally get this error code when you haven’t updated your version of Destiny 2 around the time of the weekly reset.

To do this, you can go through the natural process you usually do for looking for and installing an update on your selected platform. Then, once you have installed the update, boot up Destiny 2 again, and you should be able to access the game and bypass the error code screen you were getting before.

This method for fixing the error code is likely to work because the error code mentions that you need to check if you have ‘Applied all Destiny 2 updates’ at that time. Other error codes can be a bit more complex to fix, but with the Cat error code, you can quickly fix it.

With some luck, you should find that the error code is now fixed. However, there is another possibility that Bungie may simply be running maintenance for Destiny 2, and you encounter this error code. A great way to check for maintenance is to visit the Bungie Help Twitter page and look for mentions.

Rogue bugs, like the one that erased peoples’ Triumphs, that catch the attention of Bungie often signal downtime where the servers remain off as Bungie tries to fix whatever is broken. If true, you must wait for the servers to come online again. In the case of the cat error code, you should be set with a simple update of Destiny 2.
