Error: Unity Error CS1002

What's Causing This Error

Unity error CS1002 is related to syntax and typically occurs when a semicolon (;) is missing at the end of a statement in your code. The C# language, which is commonly used for scripting in Unity, requires a semicolon at the end of each statement. If you forget to place one, it disrupts the parsing sequence, causing the compiler to throw this error.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve the CS1002 error, you need to check your script line by line, starting from the line mentioned in the error report. Look for any statements that are missing a closing semicolon. Remember that even if the offending line does not seem to require a semicolon (it might be the last line inside a block or method), other parts of your code could cause the compiler to expect one there.

After identifying the problematic statement(s), add the missing semicolon(;) at the end of these lines. Here is an example of a common mistake and how to solve it:

// Mistake: int x = 5 // Correction: int x = 5;

Once the corrections are made, save your changes, go back to Unity, and try to compile the project again. If the problem was, indeed, a missing semicolon, this should resolve the CS1002 error.

However, errors in programming often have multiple potential causes. If the issue persists after adding the missing semicolons, it may be due to more complex syntactic issues. In such cases, you may have to dive deeper into your code and potentially consult with other developers or coding resources.
