The Division 2 Persistent Beeping Sound | Is there a fix?

Despite being out for a little while now, and after having multiple updates, players are still receiving sound glitches in The Division 2. The Division 2 persistent beeping sound bug is a particularly annoying one, though. A number of players have been complaining about The beeping noises for a few days now. Is there a fix? Read on to find out.

The Division 2 Persistent Beeping Sound | What’s the problem?

The Division 2 Persistent Beeping Sound

For a number of The Division 2 players, an annoying almost constant beeping noise has infiltrated their game. No one wants any noise constantly repeating on a loop when it shouldn’t, no matter what it is. We understand why people are becoming annoyed.

If you watch the video at the top of this official Ubisoft Support thread, you will notice that the repeating sound in question appears to be that of looting a box. Grating. As per the video, the noise repeats ad nauseam when in gameplay. You shouldn’t hear it constantly during any menu or map screen.  According to a comment in the linked Support thread, the bug appears to materialize after you abandon a Project at the Projects menu.

Unfortunately, there is not an official fix for this annoying bug. Ubisoft is aware of the issue, however. In the Support thread linked to above, Ubisoft recommend rebuilding your console’s database or reinstalling the game. Of course, this is really irritating. To make matters worse, it doesn’t appear to work as it’s merely a catch-all solution to general issues, rather than something as specific as this.

It seems as though fast-traveling won’t fix the bug, either, which can work as a workaround. User djdysfunktional, however, explains that you should log out of the game via the time out option. When you log back in, the grating repeating sounds should have disappeared. Another commenter adds that logging into a Group Member’s map should make the persistent beeping sound go away. However, with the beeping sound(s) bug also being seemingly related to the Project missions in the game, it might be wise to steer clear of them for a while, or at least don’t cancel a Project.

If this doesn’t work, though, we’d recommend raising the issue yourself with Ubisoft. Remember to have a recording ready of the bug, too, as this will make it easier for Ubisoft to pinpoint the bug and fix it via a patch.
