Destiny Cat Error Code Fix: What Does the Cat Error Code Mean in Destiny?

The Destiny Cat Error Code is one of the more common errors you will get while playing Bungie’s shared world online shooter. It mainly focuses on your version of the game not having the correct update installed, so it isn’t too much to worry about. So what is the error specifically and how can you fix it? Let’s find out.

What Is The Destiny Cat Error Code?

The Destiny Cat Error Code is simply an error code you will receive if your copy of the game does not have the latest update installed, therefore it is not a serious issue.

How To Fix The Destiny Cat Error Code

Since Destiny is on multiple consoles, each platform will have its unique way of fixing the Destiny Cat Error Code.

  • For PS4, it must be noted that the update might automatically have been installed when you switched on your console. If you do get the Destiny Cat Error Code, there are simple steps to fix it. First, return to the PlayStation 4  XMB by pressing the home button and close Destiny. Then press up on the d-pad to get to the notifications for the console. After that, click on “Downloads”, press X on the “Destiny Update File” icon, and then “Update Now” to start the installation. Once the download and installation have finished, the Cat error code should no longer appear.
  • For PS3, it is a bit more straightforward. First, close Destiny after you have received the Cat error code. Then try to launch the game again, which should hopefully prompt you to install an update. Press X to confirm you want to install it and wait for it to download. Once the update has finished installing, you should hopefully be able to play the game without the Cat error code.
  • The Destiny Cat Error Code is also easily fixed on Xbox One. Once you have received the error code, close the game and try to open it again. This should bring a prompt up to download the new update. Install it and you should be able to play the game without the error code appearing up.
  • The Xbox 360 version of the game will also have a similar fix as it works in a similar way to the Xbox One.
