How to Fix Error Code: CHICKEN in Destiny 2

Here are some troubleshooting tips to potentially fix the problem from your end.

Check your Wired Connection

Check if your wire is loose and test your internet connection in general. In case other programs are open, close them first and try again. Power cycle the main router/modem and check as well.

Clear the Console Cache

The console cache stores temp data and files, however, sometimes they become corrupted, or partially written. Clearing the cache removes these files and makes way for new files to be downloaded correctly.

  1. Power down the console.
  2. Once the console is completely powered down, unplug the power cord from the back of the console.
  3. Allow the console to sit unplugged for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the console and power it on.
  5. Re-launch Destiny 2.
