Destiny 2 PvP facing connection issues thanks to crossplay

During Season of the Lost, Bungie released the long-awaited feature of crossplay with Season of the Lost. Now, players can match with friends and play against opponents on different platforms like Xbox and PlayStation. However, this feature might have caused a dent in connectivity for players in PvP modes. Hence why players have taken to subreddits like r/DestinyTheGame to voice their concerns.

Guardians claimed that Destiny 2 has seen a drop in latency ever since the release of Season of the Lost. They have stated it’s not just their accounts, but also their friends as well, which is why they believe that it’s a large scale issue. Connectivity problems can be a major downer in the experience of any PvP mode, especially in Trials of Osiris, where players have to claw their way to earn victories.

Issues caused by the connectivity problems

Ever since crossplay has arrived, players have noticed some nagging issues during their PvP experience. This includes a considerable increase in trade kills, which shouldn’t happen quite a lot. Plus, Guardians have also mentioned that they have seen weird curvy bullet trajectories, and melee kills not registering for them. Additionally, some have even mentioned that headshots don’t register with Bows, even when the arrows stick to their opponent’s Helmets.

Other than that, players have also complained about lag, running into walls and enemies teleporting all the time. In the end, it looks the developers at Bungie have a major problem on their hands, and it’s vital that they implement measures to improve the worsening experience for players in the Crucible.
