If you want to avoid being stung by Error Code Bee the next time you play Destiny 2, then you've come to the right place. Errors are, sadly, part and parcel of gaming, arguably even more so when it comes to playing online, and they can be really annoying when they disrupt your gameplay.

But what exactly is Error Code Bee? We'll walk you through everything you need to know, to try to make this a thing of the past. You'll be back as a Guardian wielding Light before you know it.

What is Error Code: Bee in Destiny 2 And What Causes It?

Error Code Bee is linked to network problems. It occurs when your game can not connect properly with Destiny 2’s servers. It is caused by the same sort of issues that generate error codes Fly and Lion. Following are some reasons that might cause Error Code Bee:

  • Busy Internet: If a lot of people are online, it can slow things down for everyone as servers get overloaded.
  • Packet Loss: This is when bits of your game’s information don’t make it to Destiny’s servers.
  • Home Network Issues: A bad internet connection can also cause this error.

Bungie describes it as being caused by:

"General disconnections between you and the various routes your traffic takes across the internet to get to Bungie. This includes packet loss or disconnections between your home network and Bungie."

In summary: your internet connection isn't working very well, which is causing a breakdown in communication between your internet connection and Bungie's servers. This is nice to know, but what exactly can we do to fix it? Let's take a look.

How to Fix Error Code: Bee in Destiny 2

Here are some ways to fix Error Code: Bee in Destiny 2:

Check Your Internet Connection

Try all the obvious things: restart your router, disconnect, and reconnect your equipment. But also consider switching from a wireless setup to a wired connection, if possible. Likewise, if you use a wired connection, try switching to Wi-Fi, and see if the error is resolved. If so, it may indicate a faulty connection.

Freeing up Bandwidth

Bungie has also suggested that these sorts of errors can occur when too many other devices and applications are using bandwidth. So, try closing down any apps you might have running in the background, and disconnecting any devices that don't need to be online at that particular moment. Freeing up bandwidth may well resolve this error.

Fix Issues on the ISP Front

Bungie has suggested that there is a correlation between the arising error code and ISP outages within a particular geographic area. In this situation, there is little you can do but wait for the issue to be resolved.

Reboot and Clear Your Cache

Restarting your console and clearing the cache to eliminate any faulty files is also an option worth exploring. To do this, Bungie recommends the following:

  • Power down the console.
  • Once the console is completely powered down, unplug the power cord from the back of the console.
  • Let the console sit unplugged for at least 5 minutes.
  • Plug the power cord back into the console and power it on.
  • Re-launch the Destiny game.

You should also take a look at Bungie's Network Troubleshooting Guide here for further recommendations about how to set up your internet connection.

If you’ve tried everything and still see Error Code Bee, it might be something you cannot fix on your own. Sometimes, the issue is with Destiny’s servers. Unfortunately, in such cases, you can only rely on Bungie to solve the problem.
