Destiny 2 PC beta is now live for those who preordered, and the rest of the world will be getting it soon as well. It’s mostly working as intended, but there are some technical issues you could run into. We’ve compiled the list of all known Destiny 2 PC beta errors & problems, to help you avoid or solve them.
Failed to download configuration files / error code termite
This error is related to the early start, and it’s probably not going to appear for people who get there later. In some cases, checking to see whether you have the latest update helped – for many people, it didn’t download the update, which prevented them from starting the beta. In other cases, just being persistent and trying again solved the problem.
Can’t log in to Destiny 2 beta
Bungie have mentioned they expect a healthy log-in queue once the beta starts, so just keep trying. It will let you in eventually.
Early Access for the Destiny 2 Beta on PlayStation 4 starts at 10 AM Pacific. Players may encounter a log-in queue when first signing in.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) July 18, 2017
Destiny 2 servers unavailable / lost connection to server
This is to be expected. It’s either because of unstable beta code, or Bungie’s server stability tests. It was mentioned in the known issues post several days ago. There’s no helping it – you’ll just have to soldier on.
Can’t choose gender / customize character in Destiny 2 beta
This is one thing that is actually working as intended. You don’t get to choose your guardian’s gender, or customize their looks – you just pick a class, and the game chuck a pre-made guardian at you. It’s not ideal, but it’ll have to do for now.
Destiny 2 beta black loading screen
Some players are having troubles when firing up the game – they get stuck at a black loading screen, some for ten or more minutes. The only solution for this is to restart the game and try again.
Zavala’s armory door blocked in Destiny 2 beta
While playing the mission in the beta, if you happen to disconnect while in Zavala’s armory, there is a door that will stay shut instead of opening, preventing you from completing the mission. You’d have to start over, possibly with another character.
