Destiny 2 servers are taking a significant hit in anticipation of Beyond Light. Tons of players are returning, and lots of existing players are connecting to the game to see what’s in store for them in the upcoming expansion. One error, in particular, is the Destiny 2 Error Code Chickens. Bungie tends to give their error codes ambiguous animal names, so here’s what this one means and how to fix it.
Destiny 2 Error Code Chicken: How to fix
Players experiencing the Destiny 2 Error Code Chicken are often affected by connection issues with the servers. Considering the amount of traffic hitting the Bungie servers right now, the servers are likely experiencing issues. There are some things you can do to try and remedy the situation. Here’s how you can fix it.
Check for outages
Visit Destiny 2 on social media accounts like Twitter. If there is a widespread outage or a significant technical issue, they will likely inform their community about it there. Another good place to check is on the Destiny 2 subreddit because players often post about issues they are having in new or existing threads. If other players are having problems, it’s most likely on Bungie’s end.
Restart Destiny 2
It may seem obvious, but try restarting Destiny 2 and connecting to the servers again. Game developers sometimes stagger logins to avoid server congestion. By reconnecting, you can force another connection attempt to the server and potentially make your way into the game.
According to Bungie’s official forum post, Error Code: Chicken refers to connection issues. Here are some things you can try:
- Use a wired connection
- Close any background applications using bandwidth
- Clear the Steam cache
- Restart your router
- Confirm it is not an ISP issue
If you follow all of the steps above and cannot connect, you can visit the official help forums and speak with a support specialist. They can better assist you and provide you with the exact reasoning as to why you cannot connect.
