Error Code: WEASEL

Cross Save: Cross Save does NOT cause WEASEL errors. Players who attempt to log in to multiple platforms simultaneously while Cross Save is enabled on their account will receive a WEASEL error on which ever platform they logged in on first.


Destiny Bans: If a player is in an activity when a ban is applied to their account, they will be returned to the title screen with a WEASEL error. This specific WEASEL error is a result of, not the cause of, their Destiny ban. For more information on Destiny bans, please see: DESTINY ACCOUNT RESTRICTIONS AND BANNING POLICIES


WEASEL is a split-off error that was previously grouped under CENTIPEDE. This split helps expedite investigations and fixes and will be easier to understand the specific issue the player is experiencing. 
Before proceeding any further, we strongly recommend switching from WiFi to a wired connection, at least temporarily. This is an important first troubleshooting step to rule out WiFi signal strength/stability as a possible culprit.
If you are repeatedly experiencing this error code, please follow our Network Troubleshooting Guide.
If you've experienced this error code and you can no longer launch Destiny, please power cycle your console.

  • This can be done by holding the "Power" button for 5 to 10 seconds, until the console resets.
