What is the Weasel error in Destiny 2? Here's an explanation and some possible fixes for the bug.

Destiny 2: Weasel Error Code Explained

The Destiny 2 Weasel error is a common one you can experience on both PC and consoles, especially during the release of a new expansion, Raid, Dungeon, or other high-profile content. Whenever it hits you, you’ll be booted from whatever activity you were doing and any Fireteam you were a part of and end up back in orbit alone. Learn more about the Weasel error and what you can do about it here.

How to Fix the Weasel Error Code in Destiny 2

Weasel errors are, according to the official Bungie Help support page, “an all-encompassing error message that is usually an indicator that you are experiencing a general networking issue.” As noted, they are usually on your end (client-side), whether because of an inconsistent internet connection or other connection problems from your PC or console and the Destiny servers.

However, Weasel can also occur in the other direction, where Destiny servers are having issues connecting to a perfectly stable player device. Here are a few ways to track and fix Weasel errors.

Check the Server Status

The official Bungie Help Twitter Account usually has updates within fifteen minutes of Weasel error increases beginning. While they might not have a timeline for a fix, you at least know you’re not alone. You can also check the status of your device’s or service’s servers on their respective pages:

  • PlayStation Service Status
  • Xbox Service Status
  • Steam Support Page
  • Epic Games Store Service Status

Check Your Connection

There are a few ways to ensure your connection is not the issue.

  • Run a speed test on speedtest.net and watch out for packet loss, inconsistent speeds, and other issues.
  • Restart your router.
  • Check for outages from your internet service provider.

If you confirm the Weasels aren’t a problem on your end and Bungie or the wider community reports that it’s something they need to fix, there isn’t much you can do but wait for the problems to subside. Issues tend to be resolved in a couple of hours, though larger-scale outages might drag into the afternoon and evening, depending on the severity.

We wish you could do more to deal with Weasel errors in Destiny 2, but as an online game, you’re at the mercy of either Bungie’s servers, your platform’s services, or your personal connection. For more guides on the game itself, check out our Destiny 2 guides hub.
