How to fix sound bug in Destiny 2

If you’re hearing no sound in Destiny 2, the bug is most likely to do with your 3D audio software. This bug can be easily fixed by switching off whatever 3D audio software you may have turned on.

Common 3D audio software that is causing Destiny 2 to play no sound could be things like Windows Sonic for Headphones or Dolby Atmos. To remedy the bug, simply head into your Windows Spatial Sound settings and switch whichever one you have enabled off. You can do this by following these steps.

  • Press the Windows key and open your Settings.
  • Navigate to the System tab and open Sound.
  • Click on the playback device you are using; this will open the options.
  • Scroll to the section labeled Spatial Sound and select the Off option.

Once you have turned off 3D audio, you should have fixed the no-audio bug in Destiny 2. For now, you’ll have to live without your 3D audio effects, but Bungie will patch the problem soon. For now, just wait until the update rolls out and repeat the steps above to turn Spatial Audio back on.

Other known audio issues

If you are still struggling with the no-audio bug in Destiny 2, you may have an issue with your output device. If you are using headphones, try removing your current pair and testing another set. The problem may be with the cable.

If you still have no sound in Destiny 2, it may be worth trying with Bluetooth headphones (if you have any) or a Bluetooth speaker. If this works, then the problem is most likely with your audio input jack. In this case, you will need to have the input professionally replaced.

With the release of The Final Shape, you’ll want to experience the full glory of this monumental ending to a decade of storytelling. Make sure you’re properly locked in.
