Thousands of students in North America have been complaining about getting connection errors and error codes “Centipede” and “Chicken” among others, and this is due to certain router restrictions on their University LAN. Basically, the University network administrator must allow certain NAT configurations that are specific to the Xbox and Playstation.
If you’re a network administrator of a university, please follow our guide here in order to allow students to play Destiny, that is, if this is allowable by institutional policy.
You pop your freshly purchased Destiny disc into your console and you are met with funny Destiny error codes. Hassled players would go as for as calling these error codes the “Noah’s Ark of Errors” as you will see Error names such as Centipede, Chicken, Bee, Groundhog, Hare, Lion, Fly, Gopher, and Cattle. These appear after the notice “ATTENTION: Contacting Destiny Servers…” or “Lost connection to partner services.”
These Destiny error codes are usually related to connectivity issues, and a particular item you want to look at is NAT (network address translation). Your NAT will need to be configured correctly on your router. A Type 1 NAT (PlayStation) or an Open NAT Type (Xbox) is preferred.
Here are the detailed the steps you need to configure the proper NAT for your PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, courtesy of Portforward.com.

If you’re one of the thousands who pre-ordered Destiny looking forward to some awesome freebies, you’re probably scratching your head now trying to find Vanguard Weapons, Emblem, Ghost Skin, and Spaceship Skin among other bonuses.
Fortunately this is really easy to fix. Follow these steps:
- Exit game (via options menu on main screen)
- Go to settings > PSN > Restore licences
- Start game
- Go to tower
After this you should get a batch of e-mails with your freebies.
Bonus tip: If you’re getting the notice that you have to renew your Destiny pre-order and pay, you have two options: 1) Add funds, then buy
2) Set the “Automatically add funds to renew subscriptions or pay content pre-ordered” to YES (And probably you need to set also “Ask password to pay” to NO) and you can pre-order.
