Jumping into Destiny 2 is supposed to be a seamless experience, but often there can be a few problems that you need to deal with before joining your friends. A handful of these problems might be out of your control, but there are a few you can handle directly. One of these error codes is the CAT error. This is something that you will need to undo before you can start playing Destiny 2. Here’s what you need to know about how to fix the CAT error code in Destiny 2.
What to do about the CAT error code in Destiny 2
The CAT error code indicates that the version of the game you are trying to launch is different from the current server build of Destiny 2. This can happen if you attempt to launch the game without updating it to the current build first. Typically, when you boot up Destiny 2, the game auto-updates itself to the most recent version. If you try to launch Destiny 2 before the update has been completed, you will be met with the CAT error message.
All you need to do is shut down your current version of Destiny 2, wait for the auto-update to hit, and launch the game. You may want to check if you manually need to start the update for your game, forcing the game to begin updating. Most of Destiny 2’s updates only take a few minutes, so you shouldn’t expect to wait too long unless you’re waiting to download an expansion pack.
If Destiny 2 still won’t launch, it is possible it is undergoing server maintenance, in which case the best (and only) course of action is to wait until the servers are back online.
