Destiny 2: Error Code CAT

Players who experience error code ‘CAT’ while playing Destiny 2 should ensure that they have the latest version of the game installed.

Destiny 2’s latest season, Season of the Deep, introduced various new activities, weapons, gear pieces and dungeons for players to enjoy.

Although the season has been active for quite some time, players are experiencing bugs while progressing through the main arc. One of the most common error codes is CAT.

Destiny 2: Error Code CAT

Destiny 2 was released in 2017, and it still experiences regular bugs. Players can resolve most of the error codes on their own, however, there are some bugs that only the game’s developers can fix. One of these error codes is ‘CAT’.

Fortunately, error code CAT is one of the easiest codes to resolve. This code can appear on account of issues on Bungie’s side, or on your side.

If it is the latter, there is a simple solution. CAT generally appears when the developers have released a hotfix or an update for Destiny 2.

According to Bungie, the CAT error code appears when a new update is available, and players launch the game without installing the latest patch.

Simply put, it means that you do not have the most recent version of Destiny 2 installed.

To resolve this, we recommend that you ensure that you have the latest version of Destiny 2 installed. If you keep getting the error code, restart your game and log out of your storefront to see if there is an update available.
