Destiny 2's Duel with Overpowered Crafted Weapons and DDoS Attacks


In the vast universe of Destiny 2, Guardians are revered as formidable space wizards, wielding a blend of magical abilities and distinctive firearms to combat cosmic adversaries. However, Bungie probably didn't anticipate players crafting weapons potent enough to simplify some of the game's most arduous challenges. This unforeseen power surge, coupled with DDoS attacks, has thrown the game into a whirlwind of adjustments and challenges.

The Weaponry Conundrum

Bungie's radar detected an anomaly last Friday when they identified a glitch allowing players to craft specific weapon perks into other legendary weapons. This glitch enabled players to craft bizarre combinations, such as exotic perks on legendary weapons or even merging two legendary weapons. The result? A Pandora's box of overpowered builds that divided the player community. While some players reveled in the newfound power, others raised concerns about the impact of these weapons on competitive PvP.

Addressing this glitch proved more intricate than Bungie initially thought. Over the weekend, the studio kept players informed about their plans to rectify the situation. The culmination of their efforts was a series of hotfixes rolled out on Sunday. These hotfixes temporarily disabled certain exotic and legendary frames and perks to curb the overpowering weapon combinations.

The DDoS Dilemma

As if the weapon glitch wasn't enough, shortly after the hotfixes were implemented, players reported multiple disconnects and error codes. Initially, these issues were attributed to the crafting fixes. However, Bungie clarified that the real culprit was a DDoS attack. It's rare for Bungie to admit such security breaches, but the studio was transparent in this instance. Bungie expressed gratitude to its player base for their patience and assured them of their commitment to maintaining the game's integrity and future stability.

Bungie's Charitable Endeavors

On a brighter note, amidst the chaos, Bungie showcased its philanthropic side. The Bungie Foundation collaborated with Team Rubicon, a veteran-led humanitarian organization dedicated to assisting global communities during crises. Together, they introduced the charitable Jumpmaster pin. Purchasing this pin grants players a special emblem, and all proceeds from the pin sales directly benefit Team Rubicon.


Destiny 2 is no stranger to challenges, both in-game and in real life. While the recent weapon glitch and DDoS attacks have tested the resilience of both the game and its community, Bungie's proactive approach and commitment to transparency have reinforced the bond between the studio and its players. As Guardians continue their cosmic adventures, they can rest assured that Bungie is working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure a smooth and secure gaming experience.
