Destiny 2 Lightfall: Xbox Sign-In Issue Workaround
- Mar 02, 2023
Bungie's latest update to Destiny 2, the Season of Defiance or Lightfall, has been met with much fanfare. However, some Xbox players are having trouble signing in due to an issue with their user credentials. Thankfully, Bungie's customer support team has provided a workaround for those affected so that they can still enjoy the new content.
The issue concerns users’ credentials being out of sync between Microsoft and Bungie’s servers. When players try to log into Destiny 2 on Xbox, they may encounter an error message saying, ‘Sign-in failed due to an invalid username/password combination.' In this case, Bungie's customer service team recommends forcing a re-sync between the two servers by logging out and then back into your account on both systems.
To do this, firstly head over to the ‘Account Settings' page on your Xbox console, where you will need to enter your Microsoft account details (or Windows Live ID) and select 'sign in'. Once you have done this, go back onto your browser version of Destiny2 and log in again using these exact login details as before - make sure that 'remember me' is selected so that it doesn't ask you every time you open up the game! If successful, sign into Neomuna City and continue playing as usual - if not, repeat the steps until successful or contact Bungie Support directly for further assistance.
It should also be noted that even after successfully logging in, there may be other issues relating particularly to connection problems within certain areas, such as The Tower or Crucible matches which can lead players to experience lag or disconnections from games entirely - if this happens just exit from these places altogether until resolved either through server maintenance fixes performed by Bungie themselves or via third-party applications such as Xfinity Connect which serve as a connection stabilizer for online multiplayer gaming services including Activision titles like Call Of Duty And Destiny2.
Destiny 2’s newest expansion brings exciting new stories set amongst humanity's ongoing battle against the darkness - but unfortunately, some players have experienced difficulty accessing all of its content due to sign-in issues on Xbox consoles only at present. However, the customer support team has provided a practical workaround that should allow those affected by the said problem to get back to enjoying everything available withinLightfall while waiting for them to investigate further the cause behind it properly.
