4 Ways to Fix Bungie Error Code Beaver

So are there any ways to mitigate beaver code then? Well, there are some ways but they can only be helpful to a certain extent and there are no guarantees that they are going to work for sure. But nevertheless, you can still try, maybe it’s going to work out.

Enabling UPnP

One typically encounters the beaver (code) while playing through routers. One of the ways is by enabling UPnP, i.e., Universal Plug and Play on your router. There are a plethora of routers in the market so we possibly cannot go into each one of them and tell “how to enable UPnP”. Therefore, you can type the name of the router and search for “how to enable UPnP”.

Modify the NAT Settings of your Router

You can check the Network Address Translation or NAT setting in your router as it is yet another router-based issue. You can Type 1 on the console or Open NAT Types – the least strict, allowing to connect and play with anyone.

Open Ports For Destiny 2

Still didn’t work? here’s another method that might solve the Destiny 2 Beaver Error code issue. In this way, you can forward the ports on your router.

The Ports that are need to be Forward to Destiny 2:

  • For Windows PC:-
    • TCP: 4000, 6112-6114
    • UDP: 3074, 3097
  • For PlayStation 4:-
    • TCP: 1935, 3478-3480 
    • UDP: 3074, 3478-3479 
  • For Xbox One:-
    • TCP: 3074 
    • UDP: 88, 500, 1200, 3074, 3544, 4500 

You got the needed ports that will be forwarded to run Destiny 2. Now, you need to enable the port forwarding in Destiny 2 in order to make this method work.

To enable port forwarding in Destiny 2, follow the steps given below.

  • Open the IP address of your router in a web browser of your PC or console to open the router’s settings page.
  • There’ll be an option “Port Forwarding” you have to find this option in your router’s settings, every model has different option labeling.
  • Once you’re in the Port Forwarding option, enter the all information (IP addresses of your router & PC/Console and ports for Destiny 2 mentioned above) in the respective fields.
  • When it’s done, restart your router by turn it off and then turn on back again.

The ports will be forwarded and the game should be run fine.

Switch to Wired Connection

One of many reasons for seeing the error code is playing online games on a wireless connection! Online games should be played on a hardwired connection such as Optical Fibre LAN or other wired networks.

Still no luck?

Well conclusively, it may sound strange but the beaver error code is something that you can do the least about. But don’t worry Bungie has been trying to resolve it and hopefully they will come up with a solution soon.
