Live service games and error codes seem to go hand in hand, whether it’s a local issue or a server issue, it seems like players are always being hit with some type of error code. For Bungie fans, one of the biggest player complaints is the Destiny 2 Beaver error code, which causes players to disconnect from the online world. In this guide, we are going to take a look at the Beaver error code and explain some ways to go about fixing it.
How to Fix Destiny 2 Beaver Error Code
In order to understand how to fix the Destiny 2 Beaver error code, you must first understand what it means. Typically, if you’re getting the Beaver error message, it means you have a poor internet connection. While this may seem disheartening, now that we know the issue is most likely a local issue and not a server-side error, we can look at some different ways to try and fix the Beaver code. According to Bungie, the error occurs most commonly when multiple consoles are connecting to the internet via the same router. So if you have a sibling playing in the other room, that could be part of the problem. If this is the case for you, Bungie suggests enabling UPnP on your router. To do this, you’ll need to find your routers IP address and then go into the settings and enable UPnP.
If you’ve done that and are still getting the Beaver error code in Destiny 2, the next step is to open your NAT type. If you game online a lot, odds are it’s already open, but it's worth looking into if you’re not sure. The last step offered by Bungie is to try and switch to a wired connection if possible, as it's more stable than a wireless connection. So it’s time to find that super long ethernet cable and run it across your house to your room--don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
If none of the steps above are able to fix the Destiny 2 Beaver error code, unfortunately, it’s likely an issue on Bungie’s end which means there isn’t anything you can do. While this is certainly frustrating, things like this happen with live service games, it’s just how it is. Luckily, Bungie has a large, dedicated team working on Destiny 2, so odds are the game won’t be down for too long!
