Destiny 2 Player Claims To Have Received A Ban For Using A Mod In Another Game

A Destiny 2 player has claimed that they were issued a ban for using a mod in another game that was running in the background.

The player in question, thetvCruz, took to Twitter/X to share their concern. They explained that they economy system in the older Total War games is “dated”, and they usually run a program to alleviate it beyond what out-dated workshop mods can do. They clamed that the program cannot alter any files, as it is strictly limited to working with the economy of the Total War games. They claimed that they are certain the program was still active in the background after they finished playing Total War.

Destiny 2 mod ban

As per the Twitter/X user, they then received a ban in Destiny 2 as a result of the aforementioned mod running in the background. They mentioned that they had been playing the game for around 10 years, reached the pinnacle and affected thousands. According to them, they have always been an honest person, which is why they claim to have stated “exactly” what had happened. They expressed concern over a background program that affects a single player experience exclusively for a different game leading to a ban in a completely different game.

We certainly hope developer Bungie looks into the matter. If the player isn’t at fault, they ought be unbanned as soon as possible. Perhaps there’s also a need for more granular anti-cheat mechanisms that don’t ban certain players on the basis of false positives. Effective methods for handling cheating in online games is vital to the community’s health.

Destiny 2 is an online first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie.

It serves as a sequel to 2014’s Destiny and its expansions.
