Down again?

Destiny 2 is old and creaky. I dread to see what the backend of the six-year-old game looks like. So, when something like Error Code Coconut comes up in Destiny 2, it’s hardly surprising.

What is Error Code Coconut in Destiny 2?

This error is a failure in communication between Destiny 2 servers and your game. Error Code Coconut will prevent you from being able to even log into the game, let alone play it. However, rather than being an issue on Bungie’s end, as is often the case, this is a problem on your end.

Restart Destiny 2

Before you do anything else, it’s always a good idea to just restart your game. Turning it off and on again sounds rudimental, but it often solves your Coconut Error Code problems in Destiny 2. A reset will force any updates to download and refresh your cache.

Check your internet connection

If you have internet dropouts, then you will not be able to connect to Destiny 2, and you will receive the Coconut Error Code. You should check your internet speeds using a page like Speedtest. This will let you know if your internet speeds are up to the challenge of running Destiny 2.

You can reset your router to possibly clear out any gremlins living in your wires too. Simply locate your Wi-Fi hub or router, and switch it off at the wall. You should wait for a minute for the router to completely power down before switching it back on.

Once you have reconnected, your internet connection should be more stable, sorting out the Coconut Error Code in Destiny 2.

Reroute your DNS to get rid of Error Code Coconut

Error Code Coconut in Destiny 2 may be caused by an issue in your router. Sometimes, your router will struggle to connect to the correct ports and not be open to Destiny 2’s server connections. You can change the DNS to open these up.

Open up your router settings. This can be done by typing in your IP address and entering your login information. In your router settings, you will find your DNS codes. I would suggest setting DNS to 8.8.8.8 and the alternate DNS to 8.8.4.4.
