He was called out after Bungie caught him lying about cheating.
The sheer volume of cheaters has increased enormously since Destiny 2 has moved from Battle.net to Steam back in 2019, Bungie has estimated that cheating has increased by 50% in the first four months of last year.
Since then, Bungie has teamed up with Riot in order to take GatorCheats to court after shutting down cheat sellers PerfectAim.
Despite best efforts, Destiny 2 still has an ongoing cheating issue, almost any player who plays in the Trials of Osiris mode every weekend will be able to agree on this one.
Although, measures to curb cheating may still be in place, it still hasn’t managed to keep hackers at bay leaving the game more chaotic than ever.
However, one Youtube seemed to find themselves banned from the game, ‘BakenGansta’ took to Twitter to share his experience.
The Tweet read “Jus got banned in D2 for the 2nd time with no explanation this is kinda ridiculous. Id like some people at bungie to look into it. Theres no way I get banned when I see mad cheaters play for months. @Cozmo23@A_dmg04“.
Bungie’s senior community manage, Dylan Gafner was quick to reply to this accusation by saying “Bans are not issued without reason. Team has validated this action multiple times thanks to anti-cheat detection and investigation.”
BakenGansta went on to request proof of what he had done to warrant a ban saying “I’d like to see the proof of what I was doing that resulted in this ban because as of right now this is bullshit”.
Gafner came back with “Took some time to triple check this with the Security team. We have detected 2 accounts under your ownership using cheat suites while playing Destiny 2, and have banned 4 accounts total. (Includes ban evasion) This is our final communication on this matter”.
It’s comforting to know that measures are still in place to catch cheaters red handed, hopefully this will help combat the issue as best as possible.
