Destiny 2 Error Code BEET: How to Fix It [PC, Xbox, PS4/PS5]

Is Destiny 2 giving you the error code: BEET? Lucky for you, we have the fix right here. 🍀


The original Destiny was green and too experimental to realize the grand plans of its developer and publisher (Bungie and Activision). Although each expansion brought a series of improvements, it was decided to make a new game. Destiny 2 was created because the editor and engine that made Destiny were inefficient in creating new content, consuming hours and resources that were not paying off for the company. Destiny 2 is a service upgrade for Destiny 1, a game aiming to run quality and better. However, despite the obvious improvement and attention to detail, the game throws up various errors that reduce your motivation for gaming. One of these is the error code: beet in Destiny 2. This article will explain why this error occurs and how to fix it effectively.

Why do I have Error Code: BEET in Destiny 2?

We are going to highlight some of the main reasons why you might get Error Code: BEET in Destiny 2, such as:

  • incompatibility of your PC with the recommended specifications
  • outdated drivers
  • network issues
  • too many players for a private match
  • the game is not updated

How do I fix Error Code: BEET in Destiny 2?

First of all, start with these more straightforward steps that can help you right away:

If the game still has a problem, do the following:

  1. Check the number of players for the private match
  2. Check your internet connections
  3. Update systems drivers
  4. Check for game updates
  5. Enable port forwarding

1. Check the number of players for the private match

According to Bungie’s help, the error code: BEET in Destiny 2 can sometimes be obtained if you enter a private match with 12 players. You may be sent back to Orbit due to this error. The only way to get back into an ongoing private match is to rejoin a participating friend on their roster screen directly. However, if the private match is not the reason for the error, proceed to the next step.

2. Check your internet connection

Your slow and unstable network connection is one of the main reasons for most problems for games that require a fast and stable internet connection. For this reason, we recommend the following steps:

  • Check and verify in your web browser for download and upload speed.
  • Disconnect from the WiFi network all unnecessary devices that can choke the bandwidth.
  • Always use ethernet for a faster and more stable connection than wireless for gaming.
  • Power cycle your modem and router (unplug the power cords for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn on the devices). Wait for the LED indicators to return to operational status.
  • Check with your ISP if they have problems on their side.

3. Update systems drivers

Outdated or corrupted drivers for GPU, network, sound, etc., often have a connection with most game issues. We recommend updating your drivers to the latest version. Do the following:

1. Press the Windows+R keys to bring up the Run dialog.

2. Type; devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

Run Command for Device Manager

3. Double-click on the driver’s category to expand, right-click on your hardware, and select Update driver.

4. Wait while the update process searches for, downloads, and installs the latest driver version.

If you do not have time to manually update the system drivers in the described way or by searching through the web browser for original drivers, we recommend installing Outbyte Driver Updater. With a few simple steps, this helpful tool will quickly scan and update all your drivers.

4. Close and restart the Steam launcher. The update will start automatically, if any.

5. Enable Port Forwarding

Time needed: 3 minutes

As Bungie advises, enabling UPnP is the easiest way to overcome NAT limitations if it is too restrictive. However, the downside of this method is that UPnP does automated port forwarding for you, which can lead to an insecure connection vulnerable to Internet threats. We recommend a more secure port forwarding method to overcome UPnP security issues.

  1. Log in to your router

    Disable UPnP in the router menu and choose the Port forwarding option.Enable UPnP

  2. Open Port Forwarding 

    Enter the recommended UDP and TCP ports in the boxes and click Save.
    (For PC TCP: 27015-27030, 27036-27037 UDP: 3074, 3097, 4380, 27000-27031, 27036) Port Forwarding

  3. Continue entering ports via the Add New option.

    Repeat the process until you have entered all the ports via the Add New option.
    For Xbox OneTCP: 3074, UDP: 88, 500, 1200, 4074, 3544, 4500
