Cheaters ruin everything. Whether it’s simple hacks like giving yourself a speed advantage to hacks that give you the perfect shot everytime. Each cheat destroys the fun and competitive nature of games by making sure a single person can never lose. It’s like bringing a Mustang to a bicycle race and pretending you are surprised when you win. Well, “Destiny 2” developer Bungie has had enough of these buzzkills ruining their game. They have sent a cease and desist message to popular cheat and aimbot purchasing site PerfectAim.
PerfectAim is a haven for potential cheaters. The site charges a monthly subscription fee per game and in return provides cheats and hacks for games such as “Destiny 2,” “Apex Legends,” and more. PerfectAim also promises that their cheats will go undetected. Well, turns out that was a lie. Recently, the site offered a bundle of cheats for “Destiny 2” including hacks for seeing through walls, removal of weapon recoil, aimbot and teleporting. That bundle is no longer available, as Bungie has told the site to remove it with an official cease and desist notice. A note on the website explains that:
“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. 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.”
While the site still actively sells cheats for other games, as least “Destiny 2” players know a few more cheaters are now out of luck. Hopefully, Bungie’s action may serve to deter at least a few would-be hackers. After all, the battle to stop cheaters never truly ends.
