Destiny players experiencing ‘Vulture’ issues on Xbox One

These error codenames are rad

Some Xbox One Destiny players have been encountering “Vulture” errors since the 2.02 update recently rolled out.

You should only receive that error if you try to play co-op or PvP without a Xbox Live Gold (or PlayStation Plus, as the code is not unique to Xbox) subscription, but it seems players are triggering the problem even if their sub is active. 

“Bungie is aware of some Xbox One players encountering Vulture errors immediately after logging in this morning (November 18th). We are working with our partners at Microsoft to investigate the issue,” Bungie stated on the official help forums.

“If you are experiencing Vulture errors that prevent you from accessing Destiny, please click the “Contact Help” button [on the help page] and fill out the form with the requested information. Thank you for your patience while we investigate this issue.”

Some users believe the error is as a consequence of the new Xbox One Experience dashboard, but that’s yet to be confirmed.

We don’t yet know how this will work in practice, but Bungie recently teased a new Refer-a-Friend program for Destiny.
