How to turn off Destiny 2 spatial audio

If you have no audio in Destiny 2, it’s likely because spatial audio is turned on. While spatial audio makes for a more immersive experience, it’s currently causing issues for PC players, so here’s how to fix it on Windows:

  1. Click ‘start’ and go to ‘settings’
  2. Go to system and click ‘sound’
  3. Click on the device you’re using, e.g. headphones under output
  4. Select ‘off’ under Spatial Sound

That should fix the no sound issues you’re having in Destiny 2, but if you’re having other issues, check out our guide on all the Destiny 2 error codes, and the Destiny 2 server status to check whether the game is down.
