Using A Modded Console To Play Destiny Will Get You Banned

Destiny Logo

  Bungie's weekly update informed gamers that if they are playing Destiny on a modded console they will be banned. Bungie claims that they accurately banning the correct players and stated on their blog:

"Play nice! and use the boxes that your favorite retaliers gave you"

  There has been some outcry over the banhamer from gamers. With all due respect modded consoles usually mean the game is either pirated or contains exploits to give "those modders" a upper hand online. Destiny is one of the biggest games of the year and we rarely hear companies speak about banning players. At least Bungie is ensuring legit purchasers and gamers that they are handling the problem. So if you are using a modded console to play Destiny you better stay offline. Here are more quotes from Bungie's Blog:

Something else that deserves mention is that the BanHammer has been a-swingin'. Ninja Justice is always swift and final. When reached for comment, the shadowy forces who protect the world of Destiny from shadowy activities had this say:
“We routinely review Banhammer actions to ensure that they are applied accurately and fairly. A review of the bans applied over the last week shows that all of the affected accounts had logged into Destiny on a modified console at some point.”

  This isn't the first time Bungie has used the hammer on Destiny players either. Apparently some hackers and modders thought that Bungie was finished. Back in Sept. 2014 Bungie banned players who exploited the game using hacks. These hacks obviously affected the game to the point that it affected other gamers experience as well. Some of the hacks including unlimited ammo, armor, unlocked weapons that were free and so on. There was also a glimmer point hack. This is great news news for legit players. Let's hope Bungie continues monitoring their servers for more than a year. Most devs stop caring for the game after the first year or so. In this case Bungie appears to be trying to prove a message.
