Destiny 2 has been going through a rather tough patch recently. After a major exploit that allowed players to craft completely overpowered weapons, the game faced a consistent slew of disconnects. Players initially thought these were a result of the hotfix Bungie had released to solve the exploit. But as the company confirmed itself, the disconnects were because of a bunch of DDoS attacks.
Even though several days have passed since the DDoS attacks first occurred, players are still struggling to remain connected. Some have even called the game outright broken. Players reported they’re they’re unable to carry out any interactions, such as opening doors. Enemies are also bugging out in the game. Not only can they not die, but don’t even acknowledge the player’s existence.
Fans have shared multiple clips of how buggy and unresponsive the game has become as a result of these technical issues. In a video shared by YouTuber Zansu, they can be seen shooting at enemies whose pathing and detection have completely broken down. Destiny Bulletin on X also confirmed that rounds in Trials of Osiris were resulting in a tie because of these glitches.
Apparently, some players are still experiencing this issue in the game. Stand by for more details.

While some of these issues have already been resolved, players are still reporting tons of rubber banding and disappearing ads. There has also been an uptick in outage reports on Downdetector.com. This means several players are still continuing to face problems. Lag spikes are also a commonly reported issue among players, and could potentially lead to runs of some activities getting ruined.

Bungie hasn’t made a comment on the recent connection issues yet. But it’s likely the company is working on resolving the issues behind the scenes. The Bungie Help account on X previously addressed the spike in error codes, clarifying that it was due to a DDoS attack. Bungie mentioned that while the team doesn’t usually confirm these types of attacks, they still felt transparency was important in this case.
