Is Destiny 2 Down? How to Check D2 Server Status

Destiny 2 servers got you down? We can help you check the status.

Being a live-service game, Destiny 2 is no stranger to bouts of downtime. Sometimes this is for regularly scheduled maintenance (which typically occurs on Tuesdays), but other times it's unexpected. If Guardians are confident it's not their internet or local network at play, then it's time to turn to Bungie and see if it's on their end.

How to check if Destiny 2 servers are down

Three tried-and-true sources will quickly help you determine the Destiny 2 server status and, hopefully, when to log back on:

  1. The BungieHelp Twitter page
  2. The official Bungie Help website
  3. Downdetector

First, always check the Bungie Help Twitter page. Scrolling through Bungie’s feed will quickly help you determine whether or not the Destiny 2 servers are offline. This page is efficient at providing immediate service updates, which will save you time instead of repeatedly attempting to log back in when the servers are down.

If for some reason the Twitter page is lagging on updates, head over to the official Bungie help website. Often Destiny 2 service maintenance is scheduled in advance and announced via the TWAB, so you can prevent future disappointment by planning ahead. At the bottom of the page, Bungie also provides vital information such as connectivity Issues, update availability, and status on the Destiny Companion app.

When all else fails, Downdetector is a reliable source to check the Destiny 2 server status. While it isn’t an official Bungie source, Downdetector reports service updates based on real-time user reports. It’s also a great site to check outages on most online services, like Instagram, Xbox Live, and Discord. Hopefully, you can spend less time staring at Destiny 2 server updates and more time playing the game.
