Destiny 2 beta error code: Termite hits PS4 launch

Destiny 2 beta error code: Termite hits PS4 launch, Bungie asks for more logins

The Destiny 2 beta is playable for those with a PS4 Pre Order code, with more players from the Xbox One arriving tomorrow.

The new playable version of Destiny 2 is in testing phase, meaning that there could be a lot of bugs hitting players when trying to play.

The first big issue appears to be a Destiny 2 Termite error message, which is apparently linked to those trying to log into the beta.

“The Destiny 2 Beta has begun on PS4 and we are actively monitoring reports as player population rises,” a message from the Bungie support team explains.

“We are monitoring reports of Termite error codes as the population of the Destiny 2 Beta rises. Please continue your attempts to login.”

The new message appearing when players are trying to login, reads: “Failed to download configuration files from Bungie servers, please try again.”

Here’s the solution given by Bungie on how to fix the issue:

“If this is the first time you’ve received this error, please try that activity again and resume what you were doing before the error occurred. If you encounter the issue a second time, please exit Destiny and relaunch the game.

“If you are seeing this error message after exhausting all troubleshooting resources please delete, then re-install Destiny on your console.

“If you re-install and still have this issue, please start a new topic on the #Help forum and let us know which error code you received, what platform you are playing on, and what you were doing when it occurred.”

Players will be hoping to avoid re-installing the beta, as it’s a chunky 15GBs.

There will also be the added problem of more players trying to download the game, meaning a longer wait to start playing again.
