It looks like Destiny 2 players are finally getting what we’ve all been hoping to get for quite some time. Anti-cheat in Destiny 2 (or rather…a form of it). Let’s talk about it!
PerfectAim was a popular cheat for Destiny 2 as it was undetectable by Bungie’s anti-cheat software, so there was really no way of stopping it. PerfectAim provided quite a variety of cheats and hacks such as:
- Player/NPC aimbot
- Custom FOV
- Lock on target (or toggling)
- Movement prediction
- Bullet drop prediction
- Team check
- Player ESP
- NPC ESP
- Custom colors
- Customizable location
- Custom size
- Custom range
- Custom colors
- Instant respawn
- OPK (teleport NPC to crosshair)
- Custom crosshair
…and even more than what is listed. Yikes.
Fortunately, Bungie has (finally) put an end to this service as they have issued a cease and desist against PerfectAim as of October 17, 2020. The service made a statement regarding Bungie’s decision:
“We won’t comment on whether these claims are justified or not, but have decided to comply with this demand regardless. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused to our customers.”Credit: PerfectAim
Many Destiny 2 players are over the moon about this announcement, as popular Destiny 2 player, CammyCakes states:
A good start. Well said, Cammy. While this is a very good start, Bungie still has a long way to go when it comes to anti-cheat in Destiny 2.
Hopefully this can be seen as a sign to come for Bungie’s stance on cheating in Destiny 2 as players have been incredibly vocal about their disapproval of Bungie’s handling of the situation lately. I can’t imagine the situation is completely over as PerfectAim will likely try to overturn Bungie’s claims, but until then…hackers begone!!
