Destiny 2 Weasel Error – What Does It Mean?

Destiny 2

Destiny 2: New Light, Shadowkeep, and the game moving to Steam have all happened on the same day. As you might expect, there are more than a few error codes doing the rounds, and affecting different players. In this guide, we will talk about the Weasel error.

Destiny 2 Guitar Error – What Does It Mean?

According to the Bungie website, here’s the information about the cause of the Weasel error. They do have a note at the start to say that Cross-Save can cause Weasel errors if you try to sign on to two platforms at once.

Cross-Save: Players who attempt to log in to multiple platforms simultaneously while Cross-Save is enabled on their account will receive a WEASEL error on whichever platform they logged in on first.
WEASEL is a split-off error that was previously grouped under CENTIPEDE. This split helps expedite investigations and fixes and will be easier to understand the specific issue the player is experiencing.
Before proceeding any further, we strongly recommend switching from WiFi to a wired connection, at least temporarily. This is an important first troubleshooting step to rule out WiFi signal strength/stability as a possible culprit.
If you are repeatedly experiencing this error code, please follow our Network Troubleshooting Guide.
If you’ve experienced this error code and you can no longer launch Destiny, please power cycle your console.

  • This can be done by holding the “Power” button for 5 to 10 seconds, until the console resets.

I have gotten the Weasel error twice, which kicked me out of the game, but I was able to log in again both times. Unfortunately, after sitting through a queue of course. If you are getting hit with a lot of Weasel errors, run through the above steps recommended by Bungie to see if it gets resolved. At this time, the only thing you can do is have some patience and wait for the launch day issues to resolve.
