Are you wondering how to fix error code GUITAR in Destiny 2? Nothing is worse than playing Destiny 2 and having the server crash due to a random error. A common error plaguing players recently is the GUITAR error code. Luckily, this error code is easy to fix if you ever run into it. We have found the best steps from Bungie and players worldwide. Here is everything you need to know about fixing error code GUITAR in Destiny 2.

How to Fix Error Code Guitar in Destiny 2

The primary reason for the GUITAR error is when too many items are left on the ground after an activity, like a Gambit. The easiest way to prevent this error from happening is to pick up all items off the ground while performing those activities. Items that can trigger a GUITAR error include:

  • Ammo (Primary, Special, Heavy)
  • Destination Materials
  • Engrams (Rare, Legendary, Powerful, etc.)
  • Glimmer
  • Orbs of Power

Bungie is aware of an issue during the Last Wish raid where items left over after the Riven fight will hit the limit we spoke about above, causing every player to receive the guitar error and crashing the server.
