Usually when Destiny fans celebrate death for something, it’s an old worm god or psychic dragon or a great time travel robot. But today, it̵
Yesterday, fans began circulating a screenshot showing that the Perfect Aim cheat for Destiny 2 was no longer for sale, and the displayed message said it was due to a legal action Bungie had taken against the site:
“This product is no longer available
A claim has been made by Bungie, Inc. (“Bungie”), which indicates that this product violates the game’s license agreement. In addition, a requirement was made that we cease to refrain from selling this product.
We will not comment on whether these claims are justified or not, but have decided to meet this claim regardless. We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers. ”
I heard Shackle say that this had great “YouTuber excuse energy”, which is pretty funny as I mean what is their possible defense here, but it seems that Perfect Aim does not want to fight with Bungie on this issue, though these are hacks for other games like Apex Legends, CS: GO, Team Fortress 2 and others stay online (no, I do not link to the site).
Previously, Perfect Aim offered a whole host of hacks for Destiny 2, which included subtle hacks that were hard to spot, smaller aimbots, wallhacks, and the like. And they had also overridden “ruin the game” hacks that were about “showing up”, but would probably get you banned pretty quickly. But Perfect Aim was well known enough to be well hated by society as a whole and offered these hacks for a monthly fee (and the extra price of your soul).
While the destruction of at least the Destiny part of Perfect Aim’s hacks is a win, no, players should of course not expect cheating to be eliminated in Destiny 2, as there is always another hack to be found, a new sketchy site that breaks the game and then Bungie will have to go after them, and the game of whack-a-mole continues indefinitely. And yet it is hard not to be one small a little excited that Bungie managed to banish this high-profile site hack with the threat of lawsuits. You love to see it as they say.
Destiny 2 players continue to push Bungie for a more robust anti-cheat system than what the game now has on PC. Some PC players say they are moving to the console, which has 4K 60 fps gameplay with a FOV slider and far fewer hackers, if any. But I think everyone will now play trial to see if Perfect Aim’s death will help things. What remains unclear is what happens to the cheaters who have already bought Perfect Aim’s hacks. If they are only available with a monthly fee and Perfect Aim can no longer charge that fee so that they do not risk legal action, will they end up being disabled quickly enough? That is the question. (Update: The site actually indicates that the hack expires when your subscription does, and it cannot be renewed now)
Keep an eye out for more information on how all this shakes out. For now, though, it’s at least a goal for victory for the good guys.
