- Icarus Dash locked at 30FPS: We are investigating an issue impacting PC players causing Warlock's Icarus Dash to be locked at 30 FPS regardless of the players FPS setting.
- AMD RX 580 and 4K Resolution: Using an AMD RX 580 with 4K resolution causes screen to flicker and go black during gameplay.

- Oculus Rift Users: Players may experience lowered performance while Oculus Rift tracking cameras are plugged in. Unplugging the cameras from the computer may restore system performance.
- Closing Application: When closing Destiny 2 on PC, players must close the application via mouse input. Controllers cannot select the in-game button to close the Destiny 2 application.
- Cursor in Tri-Monitor Configurations: Changing resolution between 5760x1080, 4080x768, and 3072x768 may trap the mouse cursor in the right-most monitor. Players who encounter this issue should ALT+TAB out of the Destiny 2 application, then back. Players may also toggle Windowed Mode by pressing ALT+ENTER.
- IME in Fullscreen: Players who are running Input Method Editors may encounter a black screen or delay when inputting characters in Fullscreen Mode. For the best experience, these players are encouraged to play in Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen Modes.
- BUFFALO Errors on multiple PCs: Players may encounter BUFFALO errors when logging in to Destiny 2 on multiple PCs at the same time. To prevent this issue, players must ensure that they are logged out of Destiny 2 on any PC that they do not currently intend to play on.
- Login after Disconnects: A generic error code may appear to players who lose internet connection, which may block an affected player from logging back in even after reconnecting. Players who believe they are encountering this issue should close the Destiny 2 application and relaunch.
- Corporate and University Networks: Some players may be unable to play Destiny 2 on corporate or university networks. Players who encounter this issue must contact their IT department, to meet the connectivity standards outlined in our Network Troubleshooting Guide.
- TRUMPET Errors: Players who are encountering TRUMPET errors on PC may attempt to work around this issue by changing Blizzard Region, or unfriending deleted Battle.net accounts from their Battle.net friends list. More info here.
- SAXOPHONE Errors when Launching: Players may erroneously encounter SAXOPHONE errors when launching the Destiny 2 application directly from the .exe file. Players who encounter this issue must close the application and relaunch through Blizzard’s Battle.net app.
- Windows 10 Game Bar: The Windows 10 game bar may not work in Fullscreen Mode. Affected players who wish to use this feature should use Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen Mode.
- Scan and Repair: In some cases, players may repeatedly receive an error directing them to use the Scan and Repair tool, but the tool reports “no problems found.” For troubleshooting steps to take when this occurs, click here.
- Frame Stuttering in Area Transitions: We are investigating an issue where players may sometimes encounter delays/frame stutters when transitioning between spaces on planetary destinations when NVIDIA Nsight is installed. To mitigate this, players should open their Nsight Monitor application and visit the following setting: General > NVIDIA Display Driver > Driver Instrumentation. Here, players should make sure that Driver Instrumentation is disabled.
