Destiny 2 Players Report The Game Is “Broken” Following DDoS Attacks

Bungie has had its hands full with a barrage on of exploits and attacks recently.

Story Highlights

  • Players are reporting that Destiny 2 is broken and unplayable right now.
  • Several players have posted clips of enemies failing to acknowledge their existence. 
  • These problems are due to a recent slew of DDoS attacks.
  • Bungie has yet to comment on these connection issues but is likely working on a solution behind the scenes.

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.

The game is currently broken, it’s not just you.

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.

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
