New games or new DLC often bring with them new errors, or see a resurgence of old problems. And as if to illustrate this exact issue, we'll be taking a close look at the Witch Queen Broccoli Error on Destiny 2. A quick look at the Bungie Help forums has revealed that Broccoli is getting mentioned on a regular basis, and not in a discussion of its nutritional benefits.
Lots of players are running into this issue, so we've decided to let you know what solutions are out there, should you be one of the affected. This doesn't mean you can ignore eating your vegetables. Listen to your Mother. Here's what you need to know about error code Broccoli on Destiny 2.
How To Fix The Destiny 2 Broccoli Error
In terms of resolving the Broccoli error, there are a couple of recommended steps from Bungie, plus a few further workarounds that players themselves have suggested:
First and foremost, make certain that your computer meets the minimum specifications for the game. If your computer doesn't meet those requirements, then you are likely to run into problems over and over again, no matter what you try. Those requirements are as follows:
- Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
- OS: Windows® 7 / Windows® 8.1 / Windows® 10 64-bit (latest Service Pack)
- Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 3250 3.5 GHz or Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz / AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660 2GB or GTX 1050 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 105 GB available space
But we'll assume you've already checked this, and confirmed your PC can cope with the demands of the game. Here's what to try next.
Steps To Take
First and foremost, Bungie recommends that you make sure your operating system and graphic drivers are fully up to date. If you have an AMD graphics card, check here. For Intel, go here and for GeForce, go here.
This may be enough to resolve the issue. But if not, there are a few suggestions from users that may be worth trying:
- Some have reported that switching on Wind Impulse in video settings appears to make a difference.
- Others have suggested that a clean install of the graphics drivers, and resetting GPU settings has worked.
- If you ar eon Windows 11, some users have found that disabling auto-HDR may resolve the error.
- Finally, disabling Chromatic Aberration and Grain Film in video advanced settings has apparently worked for others.
If nothing works, try contacting Bungie Support for further assistance. In the meantime, if any patches become available for the game, we strongly recommend downloading and installing them as quickly as possible, as these updates often resolve errors.
What Is The Witch Queen Broccoli Error?
As we suggested earlier, the Broccoli issue existed prior to the emergence of The Witch Queen. But the release of the new content appears to have made this error rear its ugly, miniature-tree head once more.
The error itself seems to be affecting players in different ways. Some find it happening in specific places, or interacting with specific characters. While others are reporting more general issues, where the error appears without being linked to any specific place or person. Regardless, the error leads to the game crashing, making it impossible for players to go any further at that point.
This makes it much more challenging to identify what the specific cause is for individual players. But according to Bungie, the most common cause for this error is an issue with detecting the player's GPU. They believe this is typically caused by a driver crash. So try the fixes we've suggested above, and hopefully, leafy green vegetables will no longer be a concern for you.
