The error code Lettuce is a very common error that Destiny 2 players encounter. It usually occurs due to a break in communication between the server and the player, which can sometimes be caused by downtime but can have several other causes as well.
In this IR Cache guide, we’ve compiled some reasons why the error message appears to most users, as well as listing solutions you can use to get rid of this error completely. Please note that you should follow the instructions carefully and precisely to avoid aggravating the error code.
What causes the error code lettuce in Destiny 2?
The “Lettuce” error code occurs when Destiny 2 players lose connection to the game server. In most cases, affected users report that this disconnection occurs after loading the game without NPCs.
It turns out that this error code can have several different causes:
Technicolor and Thompson mismatch: If you are using a Thompson or Technicolor router, this problem is most likely due to a Telnet mismatch, which can be resolved by unblocking the port range responsible for this problem.
Router IP/TCP mismatch: If you are using a router with limited bandwidth, the problem may be because your network device is overloaded with data transmissions that it cannot handle. If this is the case, remove the number of connected devices and reboot or reset the router that is currently responsible for providing Internet access.
The conflict between Destiny 2 and GameFirst: As reported by some affected users, this error code may be caused by a conflict between Game Server Facilitator and the software provided by ASUS (Game first). If this scenario applies, you may be able to solve the problem by uninstalling the utility through the official channels.
Idle error on PC: If this problem occurs on your PC after viewing the game areas, chances are that it is a common error that occurs exclusively on the Windows platform. In this case, the only solution is to restart the game and reconnect to the game server.
How to resolve the Destiny 2 error code lettuce?
If you’re using an Asus system or Asus motherboard, check to see if you have Asus’ GameFirst installed. If you find it, it’s your problem. The application allows users to access various games but also acts as a block between your system and the Destiny 2 server.
By simply uninstalling the program, you can get rid of this error. How to remove GameFirst:
- Hold down the Windows + R key combination and open the “Run” dialog box.
- Then in the Run menu, type “appwiz.cpl” and press Enter.
- This will take you to the Programs and Features menu, where you will find a list of all the applications installed on your system.
- Find GameFirst in this list and click the Uninstall button.
- Follow the procedure for uninstalling GameFirst. This is similar to the procedure used to uninstall or install an application on our system.
- Once the uninstall is complete, restart the entire system.
- Then reopen Destiny 2 and see if the problem is resolved. There is a good chance that it is.
Reboot and reset your router
Low internet speeds could also be the cause of your connectivity problem. The main reason may be that your router’s bandwidth is limited due to the number of connected devices. To ease the load on your router, you can try resetting it.
If you have multiple devices connected and your router is receiving a large amount of data from Destiny 2, your router may not be able to handle the situation.
Restarting the router should fix this network inconsistency, as it sets new TCP/IP values for incoming requests and data blocks, eliminating the ones that caused the salad error.
- To restart the router, press and hold the power button until the router shuts down.
- If you can’t find the button, you can also try unplugging the router from its power source.
- Then wait a few minutes and see if the error code appears again or not.
If restarting does nothing, proceed to reset the settings. This will erase everything you have stored on the router.
- To reset, take a toothpick and find the small reset button on the back of the router.
- Using the toothpick, press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds until you see the LEDs on the front of the router blink several times.
- You may then have to reconfirm your ISP credentials as you did when you first authorized the connection.
- Once this is done, your Internet connection will be restored and you can try opening Destiny 2 again.
Switching to a wired internet connection
Another possible solution you can try to resolve the error is to switch to a wired Internet connection.
If your system is connected to a wireless Wi-Fi connection, you should quickly switch to a wired connection, as it will transfer data to the system better. And Destiny 2 requires quite a bit of data.
After switching to a wired connection, make sure there is no streaming, downloading, or uploading of data in the background, which can cause network latency issues in Destiny 2.
PC users use the Steam launcher for Destiny 2, and sometimes only forcing a restart of this application can solve your networking problems with Destiny 2.
- Right-click on the taskbar and select Task Manager.
- Here, stop the tasks for the instances that are associated with Steam.
- Then open Steam and try playing Destiny 2 again.
- You should no longer see the error.
