Earlier this week, Bungie, game producer of Destiny 2 , announced that the higher-difficulty version of Destiny 2‘s Raid was delayed eight days due to an exploit it discovered. The game maker has had issue with its games related to Destiny 2 since its highly anticipated release in September.

Destiny 2 is a game everyone should have in their collection in his or her gaming collection. Released on September 6, 2017, the game offers players a variety of different scenarios to play in the game. One such scenario is the more difficult Raid. 

Friday, October 13, 2017, Bungie stated that the fix for the exploit won’t go live in time for the Raid’s rescheduled launch. However, the Raid isn’t going to be delayed again–Bungie found a way to verify that teams did not use the exploit to complete the Raid.

This is not the only issue Bungie has had with Destiny 2.

Destiny 2’s Iron Banner changes almost every part of the original Iron Banner formula, in addition to the many changes the sequel makes to the Crucible overall. “Destiny 2 has been out for a month, and the Crucible has undergone a substantial overhaul,” noted game reviewer Kirk Hamilton. “You no longer rank up by playing, nor does your rank allow you to directly purchase items from the Iron Banner vendor. Instead, you earn tokens from wins and losses and cash them in at that vendor, same as with other Destiny 2 events. And in the clearest difference, higher-level characters will no longer enjoy a slight damage advantage when compared with lower-level characters.”

Many of the patches Bungie has done with Destiny 2 have been for the better. It’s clear, though, that something is missing. Iron Banner has lost some crucial part of its identity.

There’s no word yet on when the patch for the exploit will be ready, though. “A safe fix is still being investigated for this issue,” Bungie community manager Chris “Cozmo” Shannon wrote. “Our current plan is to deploy it as part of a future update. We’ll give you more details before it’s ready to go.”
