Destiny 2 was released in 2017 and is still receives an average of 70,000 concurrent players every month on Steam. However, with the increase in the popularity of the game, bugs and glitches are to be expected. Since Destiny 2 is an MMO, these issues can ruin the experience for players. One of such issues that have emerged in the game in recent days is the Min/Max Glitch that has resulted in many players getting banned for using it.
Over the years, there have been many bugs and glitches in Destiny 2 but none like this one. The Min/Max Glitch, as it’s called, first appeared yesterday when JB3 uploaded a video about it on YouTube. Since then, the exploit has started circulating online with many players trying this glitch that seems to give them the ability to generate many orbs in PvP using the Titan bubble or Warlock Super Abilities.
While this glitch has been known in the community for a while now, it hadn’t become this widespread before the video was posted. The glitch comprises of changing the display resolution of the game into windowed mode and hovering over the maximise button for five seconds before activating the Super Ability to generate an unreasonable number of Orbs of Power, as the video showcases.
The video also explains that the glitch works with many supers in the game and generates up to seven Orbs of Power on any kill with the Super Ability. As a result, players started receiving an unlimited number of Super Abilities, which ruined the game for others. While this glitch was first thought of as a “cheat” before had now become a common issue in Destiny 2 and Bungie was not okay with that.
When players used the glitch, they were met with RUTABAGA error codes, which then resulted in either suspensions or bans for the players that were caught. This isn’t new information for the company either, it seems, as Bungie has been aware of the glitch for a few months. Since then, the company released a temporary resolution in the form of the RUTABAGA error code for players using the glitch.
However, the increase in the players using this glitch recently has become a cause for concern, as Bungie released a statement about the issue yesterday. “A group of individuals discovered and reported an issue where players can generate more orbs than intended when triggering some supers. The team has been working on a fix for this, currently targeting December for release,” it reads.
Furthermore, the statement also mentions that players that have not used this glitch have also reported the RUTABAGA error code. “With this change, we are also aware that players who experience extreme sustained framerate hitching in PvP environments may encounter this error more frequently than normal,” it states. However, Bungie is actively working on resolving this issue but there’s no certainty regarding when it’ll be resolved.
It seems like Bungie was aware of this game-breaking glitch and was prepared with a temporary resolution to restrict players from exploiting the game. Hopefully, the company comes up with a more permanent resolution soon, as players are certainly not satisfied with the current state of PvP games in Destiny 2.
