Destiny 2 prepares for its next world first raid race, players cheer closure of cheat vendor

There are a couple of new things that certain Destiny 2 players can look forward to, particularly if you’re among those who are clamoring to beat the game’s next raid or just hate seeing people use cheats in PvP. Which, to be fair, are somewhat niche parts of the community, but parts that deserve attention all the same. Except for the anti-cheaters; that should be something most everyone agrees upon.

For those raiders, Bungie is prepping for its next race to a world first raid clear, which will kick off on Saturday, November 21st, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. Players gearing up for the race should take note that the Power cap for the next raid’s encounters is 1230, with Contest Mode capping players at 20 Power below each encounter for 24 hours and disabling Artifact Power. The devs are also going to take extra time to confirm the winner of the race, and plan on having an awards ceremony for the winners and a special emblem for all players who clear the raid within the first 24 hours.

As for the PvPers (especially those on PC), there’s cause to celebrate as one of the game’s community members found that a much-maligned subscription-based cheat suite known as Perfect Aim has been officially closed, while those who have previously purchased the tools will no longer have access to them when their subscription time runs up.

“A claim has been made by Bungie, Inc. (“Bungie”) suggesting that this product violates the game’s license agreement. Furthermore, a demand was made that we cease and desist from selling this product,” reads the pictured popup window. “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.”

Of course, it should be noted that Perfect Aim isn’t the only source of cheats for Destiny 2 on PC, nor that cheating efforts will completely end. Incidentally, the same Perfect Aim cheats seller is still offering “products” for other games like Apex Legends and CS:GO. That all said, the fact that a major source of garbage player behavior has been culled is certainly something to be lauded.

I stopped playing D2 because of the PVP cheating. Any sort of assist to aiming is cheating. Do consoles still get aim assist?

All versions of the game get aim assist.

On mouse/keyboard higher accuracy stat gives you “bullet magnetism” where bullets will have a stronger curve towards the target. Strong enough you can still have your cursor off target (IE: Right of ear) and it will slightly curve into the head.

On controller in addition to increased bullet magnetism you also have a “sticky” cursor that tries to stay on target longer. To compensate for this controllers have worse recoil than PC.

Different mods impact this in a variety of ways, from providing better accuracy in a variety of specific scenarios (hipfire, firing in air, just after a slide, etc etc etc) which then further impacts these.

Personally I wish all those cheat sites suffer…worse fates…

But I’ll keep my curses to myself.

This is welcome news. I know it’s a drop in the bucket but it’s nice to see them trying, even just a little.
