Despite being incredibly common, this error is relatively simple compared to some of the other codes players may experience. Recieving error code CAT upon first launching Destiny 2 means you’re attempting to play on an outdated version of the game. This is why it’s such a common error on Tuesdays when the weekly reset goes live.

To fix error code CAT, all you have to do is close the game, download and apply the update, then relaunch it. Once the latest Destiny 2 update has been downloaded and installed, you should no longer get the error message.

To update your Destiny 2 on Steam, navigate to the game’s page in your library. The blue “play” button should be changed to an “update” one. Click it and wait for the download to complete. If you’re on PlayStation, hover over Destiny 2 in your dashboard and hit options on your controller. Click on “check for updates” and the system will automatically detect if you’re playing on an old version. For Xbox players, navigate to the updates section of “my games and apps.” Then, select Destiny 2 from the list and click update.

If you do continue to receive error code CAT even after ensuring that you’re playing on the latest Destiny patch, then you have a problem that’s entirely unconventional. In that case, barring a fresh install, your best bet would be to create a ticket with Bungie and hope that their engineers have a solution. This should practically never happen, though, as any other issues would be covered by different error codes.
