Destiny 2 Cat Error Code: What Does It Mean?

Error codes in Destiny 2 represent different errors, each one meaning a different kind of fault is causing the issue. Some are more of a problem than others, some are quite common like the Weasel error code. However, these terms don't mean much by themselves. They are a system by which Bungie can determine exactly which issues are popping up in the game for players. The more the team at Bungie see a particular error code being mentioned online via forums and social media, the easier it is for them to locate the problem.

Cat is not a particularly common error code. This is because the Cat error only appears when a new update is available but has not been installed. Usually, the game will update in the background, and players will be returned to orbit once an update takes effect. However, sometimes the game will have an update that it cannot apply while you are playing. As such, the error code Cat appears.

The Cat error is quite easily remedied. First, log out and turn off the game. It should update automatically, so doing this should trigger the update. This can depend on your platform. On Steam, the game should update by itself once you exit it. On consoles, you might need to attempt to launch the game again to get it to check for an update. Once the game is updated, you can play again.

If the game does not update, you may need to wait. The error specifically means there is an update available, so it should be a quick and easy fix. If the problem persists or worsens, there may be a deeper issue and you might need to contact Bungie for support.
