Bungie is going to have to postpone the Trials of the Nine event in Destiny 2 for two weeks. The reason is a game-breaking emote glitch which allows people to go through walls. Bungie is hoping that they’ll have the issue fixed by the beginning of November.
Oh, Bungie. You just can’t catch a break. After delaying the launch of Prestige Mode for the Leviathan Raid because of a glitch, a new problem has popped up. Because of another glitch, the Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine event will have to be postponed for a whole two weeks. So, if you want to participate in the elite PvP event, you’ll have to wait until November 3rd, according to Bungie themselves.
In case you were wondering which glitch is causing trouble now, according to Eurogamer, it’s the Bureaucratic Walk emote. In case you haven’t run into it yet, the emote references a beloved Monty Python “Ministry of Silly Walks” sketch. If you use it, your Guardian will do a part of John Cleese’s legendary walk. Seems simple enough. Trouble is, in true pythonesque fashion, the emote allows people to glitch through walls. In fact, it was causing so much trouble that Bungie pulled the emote from the store. However, those players that already had the emote can still use it to walk through walls.
Hopefully, Bungie will be able to fix this issue by the beginning of November. It’s been causing a lot of (admittedly hilarious) mayhem in Destiny 2. In a situation where elite players are competing in PvP, the situation gets a little less funny. And, seeing how the world’s first team to beat the Leviathan Raid on Prestige won by exploiting a glitch, the pressure is on for Bungie. We’ll see what happens when November rolls around.
