Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver Fix

Online games like Destiny 2 will always have some hiccups from time to time. Whether it’s a poor internet connection on a player’s end or server issues on the game provider’s end, things don’t always go smoothly. One common issue is the Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver, and we’re going to show you how to fix it.

Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver Fix

Error Code Beaver is caused by an internet connection issue between you and another player. There are many reasons why this can happen, including but not limited to server issues, ISP issues, spotty wireless connections, and high internet traffic.

There are a few fixes you can try if you continuously get these Beaver error codes, and they are preventing you from playing online. It can be annoying getting disconnected from ten competitive games in a row and racking up the losses when it’s not your fault.

Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver Fix

Enable UPnP

Many players receiving these errors typically play through routers. One solution is to enable UPnP on the router, also known as Universal Plug and Play. To do this on a Dlink router, head to your router’s IP address, which is usually Log in and head over to the Tools tab, and head over to Miscellaneous. Under UPnP settings, make sure it is enabled and click apply.

Please note direction will vary depending on what type of router you have. Do a Google search for your router’s name and then “how to enable UPnP.”

Opening or Changing NAT Types

Another router issue causing Destiny 2 Beaver Error Codes is NAT Types. NAT means Network Address Translation and is a setting in all routers. On console, Type 1 or Open NAT Types are the least strict, allowing players to connect and play with anyone.

Port Forwarding

A final solution if nothing else is working is to forward the ports on your router. Here is a list of ports that should be OPEN for Destiny 2:

Here is a list of ports that should be FORWARDED for Destiny 2:

We can’t go into detail for how to do this on each router because the article would be too long. Again, we recommend doing a Google search for how to OPEN and FORWARD ports on your specific router brand (LinkSys, Dlink, etc).

Poor Wireless Connection

Another common reason players see Beaver Error Codes is due to a poor wireless connection. We always recommend using hardwired connections to play online game that require a high-speed connection. If that’s not an option, you should be sure you have a strong signal.

If you have spotty wireless, you can potentially find a more suitable location for your wireless router. Other options include buying Wi-Fi signal boosters which optimize the signal in your home.

Issues with Servers

The final reason for Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver is something completely out of your control. Occasionally, servers will have issues in Destiny 2. It happens with any popular multiplayer game. Fortunately, Bungie is very responsive and will normally let people know about any issue they are aware of through Twitter.

I hope this guide helps you solve your Destiny 2 Error Code Beaver issues. It can be a frustrating experience getting random disconnects throughout your sessions. Please let us know if you encounter any fixes that work for you that are not listed above.
