Online games require a bit of maintenance, and that’s especially true for Destiny 2. Bungie’s sci-fi epic bases a lot of features around internet connectivity, but issues often result in error codes. Error code honeydew is one of these codes, and it pops up under very specific circumstances. Here’s what it means and what you can do to fix error code honeydew.
How to fix error code honeydew in Destiny 2
According to Bungie support, error code honeydew in Destiny 2 appears when public access to an activity has been overridden. This happens when servers go down or when certain issues have been found. However, since Bungie itself changed access rights to the activity, you don’t have to do anything to fix the honeydew error.
In most cases, error code honeydew appears to be some sort of networking issue. When Bungie pulls access to certain events, you won’t be able to join them, making it seem like game servers are unavailable. In fact, you’ll probably see a message saying servers are temporarily at capacity. This message can appear even if the accepted capacity is set to zero.
Don’t worry, this is a common problem. Honeydew means that Bungie revoked access to something, not that anything is wrong with your connection. Specifically, it means that “public access to an Activity has been manually overridden by Bungie.” In other words, certain functions are simply unavailable. Typically this will result in a service alert on the Bungie server status page.
When this error code appears, all you need to do is sit back and wait. Assuming the activity can be restored, you’ll be able to jump back into your Destiny 2 activity shortly. If the issue needs more time to be fixed, Bungie will have to perform the required maintenance. In either case, you’ll simply have to wait it out.
