Destiny 2’s new raid is proving rather tricky for groups of players to tackle, though not for the usual reasons. Various quirky error codes like ‘anteater, ‘bat’, and ‘guitar’ are sending people back to orbit during different Vow of the Disciple encounters, while general server stability is also proving to be an issue.
Players are taking to Reddit and Twitter to vent their frustrations, while others are watching it unfold as streamers attempt to win the race to be the first to complete the new raid. The race to world’s first is popular with many games that feature raiding, though it has become quite the tradition in the Destiny 2 community. Bungie even sends the winning team cool wrestling-style belts to congratulate them. It’s rad.
Naturally, Bungie is on the case. Devs initially notified fans that they were investigating the error codes before temporarily turning on sign-on queues for those who don’t own a Destiny 2 season or expansion due to “a rise in error codes and server instability”. The sign-on queues only lasted for roughly two hours, though the team continues to work on server improvements at the time of writing.
