Fans can’t help but laugh at the feature’s delay

Many fans took to Twitter to voice their happiness at the arrival of anti-cheat in Destiny 2. However, some community members couldn’t help but joke about the late release of an important feature like this. Destiny 2 released almost four years ago, and it took Bungie a long time to finally add a feature to prevent rampant cheating. The game has been plagued by cheaters and hackers in PvP modes like Trials, Crucible, and many more. Following the game’s shift to a Free to Play model, the situation worsened with fans finding hackers in many lobbies.

Along with that, many of them complained that they chose the wrong software for an anti-cheat. BattlEye works in a lot of popular games like Rainbow Six: Siege where there’s a lot of cheating as well. Fortnite has also partnered with BattlEye, but they also use other techniques to keep the hackers at bay. Other than that, players will have to wait a long time before this feature becomes fully integrated with Destiny 2.
