Difference between "Missing Reference Exception" and "Null Reference Exception" in Unity C#

2026 views c#

In the Unity manual there's an explanation for Null Reference Exceptions but not for Missing Reference Exceptions. Are there any differences?

Sounds like it's the same thing, still looking for an official answer.

Null reference typically means that something is not initialized correctly.

A missing reference exception means exactly that, a reference to something your project is dependent on is not being found. ( such as a missing USING statement or dependent component )
