Thankfully, The Division 2 beta PC Oscar 01 error can be fixed. There was a bug, known simply as the Oscar bug, that was caused by a firewall or proxy problem on PC. This is a follow up to that problem, so you’ll have to give permission to your firewall to allow access to this patch.

To do this, exit the game. Then, load up the firewall or virus software program that you use, and make sure that The Division 2 beta folders and .exe program are exempt from being blocked. After this is complete, you can reload the beta and see if you can access the patch.

If the update is downloaded, you should be able to play. If you still have problems with it, however, your best bet is to head to the Ubisoft support forums and lodge a ticket with them, outlining what the problem is, along with your PC specs.
