If you’re a college student who purchased Bungie’s recently released shooter, Destiny, you’re probably really angry, and you’re not alone.
It seems there are a few external issues that Bungie didn’t take into account when releasing Destiny to the gaming public, one of which being whether college students would be able to enjoy it at all.
In fact, the college student issue with Destiny is so common that it has it’s own name: the Bungie Centipede Error. There’s even a #fixcentipede hashtag floating around Twitter. Learn all about it below, and find out how you can get around it.
What Is the Bungie Centipede Error?
Well, it’s pretty simple: Destiny is an online game reliant on servers that some colleges block for reasons completely unrelated to gaming. If you’re on one of these campuses that blocks the necessary servers for playing Destiny, you’ll find yourself yourself face to face with an error code dubbed Centipede.
That’s the whole story.
How to Fix Bungie Centipede Error & Unblock Destiny for XboxOne
The very first thing we recommend trying is going to the Help page for the Bungie Centipede Error and opening the ports that they recommend opening, if that is possible for you.
Of course, since the majority of those affected are on college campuses, this may not be a viable option, as college campuses don’t exactly make those ports available to every student that wishes to access them. So we have a backup plan…
A college wired network can’t stop you if you have a top-notch device like a FlashRouter that also utilizes the VPN services ability to circumvent geographical restrictions and improve your online security. A DD-WRT or Tomato FlashRouter will give you the speed and power you need to play Destiny any time you want without any worries about bandwidth. You can even determine how you’d like your bandwidth allocated and prioritize your gaming activities with a FlashRouter.
Of course, where would you be without the VPN service? Stuck behind your college’s network blocking systems, that’s where. If you subscribe to any VPN service on our official supported provider list, we can send your FlashRouter ready to work with your VPN subscription right out of the box.
We do recommend you refer to the rules of your university as using a VPN and your own router may not be allowed even though it can be very beneficial.
