Destiny 2 is undergoing significant changes these days. On September 15th, Bungie confirmed that they were aware of an issue with creating legendary weapons. What was the problem? Well, certain advantages from other weapons could be incorporated into these legendary ones, creating a very damaging combo.
Due to this issue, Bungie has released a new statement outlining the changes that will be made. These changes fall into two major points, and there are no plans to revert them, according to the studio.
The first point is related to a patch that was introduced last night, which disables all crafted weapons. Yes, it’s that straightforward. Does this mean you won’t be able to create any weapons again? No, don’t worry, you will still be able to, but here comes the second point: the studio will investigate which weapons were made with these “illegal” components to prevent their use. Once this is done, these weapons will return to a default state.
These are the points to keep in mind. The first one is already introduced in a small patch, while the second one is expected to arrive soon (we assume this week).
Is there a risk of a ban?
With this issue in the background, the question is simple: is there a risk of a ban in this situation? Bungie has clarified that as long as “an exploit in the game is discovered,” it will not be banned or subject to restrictions, as it is a problem with the game itself (players can use it if they discover it until a patch is released). However, this changes if “external scripts and tools that can be used for manipulation” are employed. In this second case, closing an account or banning is within the studio’s authority.
It goes without saying that this particular case falls into the first category, meaning it’s an exploit. Therefore, there is no risk of a ban.
