Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is here, and it’s unfortunately caused a number of errors — including the Destiny 2 Weasel error and Destiny 2 Chicken error — and other problems for players trying to get into the game. It is, after all, a rather big expansion. The Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Moon destination is twice as big as Destiny 1‘s, and Shadowkeep‘s Armor 2.0 system will introduce changes for all Destiny 2 players. Big changes often mean additional problems, so many players have been running into Destiny 2 error code Beaver, especially those playing Destiny 2 on Steam. Follow this guide to learn what you can do about the Destiny 2 Beaver error.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep | Error code Beaver
According to the Bungie website, the Destiny 2 Beaver error code (along with the Flatworm and Leopard errors) results from a connection issue between your console and another player’s. This means there’s a possibility that you can do something to fix it, unlike a lot of other network errors. Bungie says the most common cause of the Beaver error is router or network configuration issues, especially when multiple consoles are connecting to the internet via one router. In addition, the error can be caused by packet loss, ISP saturation, general internet congestion, certain WiFi setups, or even faulty in-home wiring. Bungie says some players have been able to work around the multi-console issue by enabling UPnP on their routers, but the developer “strongly recommends” switching to a wired connection, in general, as that can help avoid this family of errors. Finally, Bungie suggests consulting the Destiny Network Troubleshooting Guide for specific tips.
Still, it appears the Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Beaver errors could be coming from another source. The Bungie Help Twitter account (which, by the way, it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on when experiencing errors) tweeted shortly after Shadowkeep’s launch that it was investigating an increased number of Beaver errors experienced by Steam users, so it could be a problem on the backend of things. If you’ve reset your router and followed Bungie’s other troubleshooting tips, your best bet may be to continue trying to log in to Destiny 2 and watch the Bungie Help account for updates.
