Destiny 2 Connection issues

All of the previous evening I was being disconnected from Destiny Servers. Discord Voice was working fine, but this persisted from 8pm to midnight. Error code Baboon. 

Eventually I connected over VPN. At that point I had absolutely no issues maintaining my connect to the gaming servers. 

What is going on at the ISP end for this behaviour?

I should add, this is a wired connection to the router.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

Thanks for the post Raziel_uk and welcome to our community.

 

Can we please confirm if you're still experiencing any issues?


If so, could you try run through a pin hole reset of the Hub and check all the cables are secure?

 

Thanks, Emily.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

I've tried a hard reset of the hub now. No improvements. 

 

Evenings in particular my connection to Destiny servers is very spotty and frequently drops out entirely. 

 

Using a VPN continues to improve my ability to maintain a connection.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

In which country is the VPN ? 

I ask because it may affect the routing to a particular games servers. A popular game like Destiny 2 is likely to have country-specific servers.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

Just running through UK servers. 

It's very much time specific. Absolutely fine in the morning, but in the evening it keeps losing connection to game servers. I'm going to try some other multiplayer games over the weekend and see if it's specific to this game.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

Have you made sure your console has an Open NAT? In my experience Destiny can be sensitive to Moderate or Strict NAT.

Re: Destiny 2 Connection issues

It's on PC rather than console but that would make sense. The VPN would mean the router just saw a 443 TCP Web connection tunnelling from the PC to VPN servers and it would skip all its Nat on any other ports used by the game in and out.

Maybe I'll disconnect everything else and run the pc through it in modem mode and see how it works. I don't want to do anything that exposes less secure devices (TV, light bulbs, IoT bits and bobs) to the wider Internet.
