Destiny 2 doesn’t always run flawlessly, sometimes it just crashes without an error. Sometimes the game crashes with the error “Destiny 2 has stopped working“. For example, Destiny 2 goes fine for about 30 minutes or an hour, then crashes. If you encounter this problem while gameplay, there are various ways that you can fix this issue.
Playing the Destiny 2 with high graphics quality can cause the game to crash. So you need to lower the graphics settings. You can also lower the resolution.
You should limit/lock your FPS. You can cap the framerate on in-game Settings.
- Launch the Destiny 2
- Go to the Game options
- Click on Open Settings
- Go to the Video tab.
- Set the “Framerate Cap Enabled” to On
- After that, set the “Framerate Cap” to 60
- Apply Changes and play the game.

Uninstall the Destiny 2. Then reinstall the Destiny 2 on different Local Disk.
You should keep your computer’s graphics drivers and OS updated.

Check your CPU temp. Overheating of the processor may cause the Destiny 2 to crash.
There may be a problem with RAM. Try swapping the memory slot.
I suggest you check the HDMI or DisplayPort cable of your monitor. If possible, replace the display cable and then try playing the game. I recommend you check this, especially if Destiny 2 crashes during the loading screen (when flying).
