Destiny 2: Beyond the Light, like many games, has its fair share of cheats and hackers. While most cheating and hacking is done on PC, the console versions of Destiny 2: Beyond the Light are not immune to cheating and hacking. Destiny players have expressed their frustration with cheaters and many popular players have even turned away from the PC due to the number of cheaters.
For the past month, Bungie has been battling an exploit in their Rejoin Squad feature that has caused Trials of Osiris to be canceled until last weekend. Bungie has mentioned in the past that it doesn’t prohibit people from unintentionally using in-game systems. When it comes to cheats and hacks, Bungie has been known to focus on third-party software.
Today, March 24, 2021, Bungie’s Twitter account issued a message informing people that Destiny’s security team has delivered a coup de grace. This reaffirms Bungie’s stance against cheaters and its desire to keep Destiny on a fair and level playing field in Destiny.
The Game Security team has taken a swing with the banhammer.
Keeping the playing field level is important to us.

Bungie further claims that it is watching, which should ease some community concerns around Bungie’s stance against cheaters. While many players may want a more detailed message discussing Bungie’s action plan, Bungie did not give any details on the ban wave.
Bungie has previously stated that they don’t want to give too much information about their ban process or how they plan to target cheaters. Deciding to withhold information is a Bungie strategy to combat cheaters and hackers.
Previously, Bungie partnered with Riot Games to sue GatorCheats, a software company that cheats for online games. Bungie has been serious about cheating for a while now and has continually taken steps to mitigate cheating in Destiny 2.
Bungie’s persistence against cheaters and hackers shows how difficult it is to combat those who don’t play fair. Destiny 2: Beyond the Light players may think that Bungie isn’t doing enough to combat the ongoing cheating problem, but Bungie’s recent tweet should give some Guardians more peace of mind that it’s actively working on the issue. .
While the cheater problem is a problem in many games, Bungie voicing opposition to cheats and hackers is a good thing. Hopefully this will make some cheats and hackers think twice before trying to hack their way through the game using third-party software or cheats.
Destiny 2: Beyond the Light is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
