What is Destiny 2 Error Code Weasel?

Destiny 2 Error Code Weasel

Error Code Weasel is Bungie’s codename for an issue that occurs when Destiny 2 players try to log into multiple platforms simultaneously while Cross-Save is enabled on their account.

Destiny 2 Cross Saves allow you to carry your progression between multiple platforms, but if you try to log into different devices at the same with this feature enabled, you’ll get the Error Code Weasel.

Alternatively, you may also encounter this message if you have another connection-related issue that the game hasn’t identified yet. This comes under the designation “Error Code Centipede.”

All you have to do is switch your internet connection from WiFi to ethernet and check if the Error Code Weasel still pops up when you try to play the game. Just restart the game before testing to make sure it worked.

Restart Your Device

Delete all current clan invites

Many players have reported facing this problem after they received an invitation to a clan in Destiny 2. So, you should request that the clan admin temporarily removes you, which will delete the invite.

If the invite is the source of the error, then this will fix the problem. You can then try rejoining that clan, and hopefully, you won’t encounter the Error Code Weasel in the game again.
