On PC, simply you are able to close the game and use the Windows button to click on Power > Restart. Then, you are able to wait for the next startup to complete before launching the game once again.

Method 4: Reinstalling Destiny 2 (For PC Only)
If you are facing this error on a PC (after Destiny 2 completed the move from Battle.Net to Steam) it is possible that you are getting this error due to several leftover files left behind by the old installation. If this case is applicable, then you have to try uninstalling the Battle.Net version of Destiny 2 and also clear the cache data of Battle.Net before reinstalling the game from Steam.

- When you are inside the Cache folder of Battle.net, please hit the back button. Afterwards, right-click on the Battle.net folder and select Delete from the context menu to fix any leftover files which might still cause error.
- Please repeat step 5 and 6 with the remaining cached files and remove every folder until there is no remnant file which might cause the error.
