A new wave of bans has hit the PC version of Destiny 2. Needless to say, many players are crying foul, claiming that they’ve been using completely innocent third party programs. However, it seems that Bungie is adamant that all the bans are legitimate, after thorough reviews.
Bungie has released a brand new wave of bans to Destiny 2 PC players, coinciding with the launch of Trials of the Nine in this version. It makes sense, considering that cheating completely uproots the whole point of the trials. However, just like with the first wave of Destiny 2 PC Bans, many players are completely outraged. A lot of people are claiming to be innocent; they’re saying that they have been using some third-party programs, but no cheating software. As a reminder, Bungie responded to the first wave of bans, and even removed some of them. However, they upheld the majority of the bans. This was a pretty interesting move, because the implication is that a lot of the players claiming innocence might have been playing dumb.
So, one has to wonder, is the same happening again? Could it be that some of the affected players aren’t telling the truth? As Gamerant points out, gamers are claiming that the third party programs and apps have never caused any problems another games, such as Overwatch. On the other hand, Cozmo, the Community Manager at Bungie, tells a completely different story. He says: “We looked into it. Our recent wave of protective security measures were reviewed extensively and all were identified as having cheat tools running multiple times.”
It’s pretty much impossible to verify either version of the story, at least right now. This could either be gamers making false claims, or Bungie refusing to acknowledge their mistakes. Maybe it’s even a little bit of both. One thing is for sure, the situation is pretty ugly, and it’s not showing any signs of getting any better. Hopefully, whatever the case may be, the situation will resolve itself with the minimal ban body count.
