When you play Destiny on your console, a number of error codes may appear to you. However, dealing with these error codes can sometimes be quite difficult because Bungie has not yet released a regular fix for either of these problems and users are forced to think about them themselves.
In general, the Anteater error code is accompanied by several other error codes, such as Bee, Baboon, etc. However, users were not lucky enough to fix the error code until Bungie came up with some fixes that temporarily solved the problem. The error still affects long-term users, so try to fix it by following the following steps:
Solution 1: Switch to a Wired Internet Connection
It is recommended that you try to switch to a wired Internet connection if you use WiFi or a mobile data connection to play and check if the problem still occurs. Users who played the game over WiFi have reported that after switching to a wired connection, the error has almost disappeared, so try this solution before you do anything else.
Solution 2: Restart Your Console
This solution has helped many people deal with their Anteater error code and is a very general way to solve almost all Xbox problems. Of course, this method can only be used for users playing Destiny on Xbox.
Make sure all your games are synchronized and backed up online, however, as this process can eventually delete them from your local Xbox One memory. There are two ways to remove the cache from Xbox One and reset the console completely:
- Press and hold the button on the front of the Xbox console until it is completely shut down.
- Remove the power brick from the Xbox. Press and hold the power button several times on the Xbox to ensure there is no power left and the cache is cleaned.
- Plug the power brick and wait until the light changes its color on the power brick from white to orange.
- Turn Xbox as usual and check if the Anteater error code still appears when Destiny or Destiny 2 is started.
Alternative for Xbox One:
- Navigate to Xbox One and click Network > > Settings Advanced.
- Scroll down to the Alternate Mac Address option and select the Clear option.
- You will be asked to make a real choice because you will restart your console. Answer your cache and clear it. Open Destiny or Destiny 2 after the console has restarted and check if the Anteater error code still appears.
If you play Destiny with a PlayStation 4, follow the following instructions to reset your PlayStation 4 hard, as PS4 has no option to clear the cache:
- Completely turn off the PlayStation 4.
- When the console is fully shut down, unplug the power cord from the back of the console.
- Let the console remain unplugged for at least a few minutes.
- Plug the power cord back into the PS4 and turn it as usual.
Solution 3: Contact Your Internet Provider
It turns out that people who had bad equipment and had not replaced it in years caused the problem with this error code. These people used the Internet cable to play the game in most cases and it turns out that the problem can be solved by simply replacing them.
If you are a cable Internet user and your equipment has not been replaced for more than a few years, you may need to contact a cable technician or simply buy and replace the equipment.
However, if you use any type of Internet connection and you begin to notice a decrease in performance, make sure you contact your Internet provider and do everything you need before checking whether the error code continues.
