Destiny 2's hardest boss.

The One Moment Please error message is the toughest foe most Guardians face in Destiny 2. And whenever a new expansion comes around, it’s the thing that every player dreads to see. Sometimes it isn’t there for very long, but my luck has had me staring at the screen for far too long. Here is how to fix the One Moment Please error in Destiny 2.

Can you fix the “‘One Moment Please'” message in Destiny 2?

The One Moment Please message appears because there are too many players logging into Destiny 2 all at once. To keep the game stable, the influx of players has to be slowed down. And the bad news is that you’ll just have to sit and wait until you get through since there is no way to bypass this screen since it is a measure taken by Bungie to keep servers from exploding – although they would certainly experience some issues anyway.

This sort of message is present in many other online games and will happen more commonly when larger pieces of content like updates or expansions are launched, which will inevitably lead to a huge number of both new and returning players attempting to log in at once. While this error has happened before and will certainly happen again in the future, it is still a bit frustrating if you end up getting the short end of the throttle stick.

The best advice for this situation is to stick with the game until you finally get through. It may also be a good idea to leave and come back in a few hours when things calm down a bit. You can also do your best to improve your connectivity while you are at it since the “One Moment Please…” message can be accompanied by error codes such as Cat or Currant. Reboot your router and use an Ethernet connection so that you can battle The Witness in peace.
