Bungie Responds to Reports of Destiny 2 PC User Bans

After a day's worth of the rumor mill grinding away about Destiny 2 and mass bans ostensibly at the hands of third-party programs like Discord overlays, Bungie has responded definitively in order to stop the flow of disinformation. While the game has managed to launch on PC without major issues, there were reports of PC owners getting banned even if they didn't violate any rules.

Bungie has also listed the third party applications that are not allowed when playing Destiny 2 on PC.

"We are committed to providing an experience that is fun and fair for the millions of players who have joined us in this community", a notice from Bungie reads. Bungie did say that players should be able to use apps like these alongside Destiny 2 but that the title would block software overlays.

The Welshman has played 10 first-team games for the Anfield side and has scored one goal in that time. The talented teenager added of the contract: "I think there is loads of room for improvement".

Imagine you've been built up on the hype surrounding your favorite game's release on the PC. Bungie came in to reassure the fan base that bans were not being issued for using third-party programs. They did not and will not issue bans to players using video recording, video streaming, and communication programs including Discord, Xsplit, OBS, RTSS, and more.

"There are NO options to dispute or overturn account restrictions or bans", the Bungie support site confirms. Bungie does not comment on or discuss individual account restriction or bans. Account restrictions and bans are only done in extreme cases; if actions were taken against your account, then it was with reason.

Following Destiny 2's launch on PC this week, some concerns began to emerge regarding the use of seemingly innocuous software, such as Discord, Fraps, Mumble, and Xsplit.
