As Destiny 2 is an online-only game, it is no surprise that connectivity errors can crop up. This can make it difficult, if not impossible, to play the game. Destiny 2 has the error code WEASEL that many players experience and go through several steps trying to fix. Thankfully, this isn’t an unknown error to the developers. Let’s go through why error code WEASEL shows up and how you can fix it.
How to Fix Error Code WEASEL in Destiny 2
Error code WEASEL pops up in Destiny 2 when you have some server connectivity issues. In fact, Bungie deems it a split-off code from the Centipede error code family. Doing so helps them and players better understand the WEASEL error.
If you can’t get into the Destiny 2 servers, always check the Bungie Help Twitter account to ensure there is no maintenance going on.
Once that is ruled out, it is time to check things out on your end. A good first step to fix the error code WEASEL in Destiny 2 is to set up a wired connection rather than using just Wi-Fi. This will give you the strongest connection to the servers and diagnose whether you just have a weak signal.
If the problem persists, then it is time to go another route. You can always restart your console/PC as well as your router. If this does not resolve your problem, you can also check out Bungie’s Network Troubleshooting Guide for more assistance.
Following all this, if you still get the WEASEL error code when launching Destiny 2, then it may be something unrelated to your connectivity. In fact, users have reported receiving this error code upon learning that they are banned from the Destiny 2 servers. So, you should also be certain that you didn’t miss a notification informing you of a ban. If this is the case, then it’s time to submit a ban appeal and simply wait and see.
Destiny 2 is available on PC, PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
