STATES CHRONICLE – The day the Leviathan prestige raid was launched in Destiny 2, a team managed to beat the game in just two hours after it became available. This was supposed to be the hardest mission for players that would give them enough challenges to keep them occupied for days. Yet Clan Redeem needed only 4 minutes to triumph and win absolute prestige across Destiny 2 community.
However, their achievement lost its shine when the footage of their raid came to surface. Users were able to see that the players took advantage of a bug to outwit the game and cross the finish line in record time.
The Controversial Bug Gives Players Endless Ammunition
The developer of Destiny 2, Bungie, thought congratulations were in order for Clan Redeem. They were among the first squads to take their new feature, Leviathan prestige raid, for a ride in two hours following the launch. They were also the ones that achieved the impossible by completing the raid in record time.
“Congratulations to Clan Redeem for being [the world’s] first to complete the Prestige Raid by a margin of only four minutes! Good game.”
However, Bungie kept silence when it was discovered that the team exploited a bug to secure their success. This flaw has been around since September, and it became known as the coil glitch. One of the players has even said in the footage of their legendary raid that they were taking advantage of this weakness.
The glitch consists of a source of ammo located on the Wardcliff Coil rocket launcher. As Destiny 2 players have limited ammunition, clan Redeem was able to unlock endless gunpower.
The Destiny 2 Community Debates Whether This Win Is Legit or a Cheat
So far, the Destiny 2 community is split into two sides. On the one hand, some fans of the game condemn the way Clan Redeem go their ‘world first’ status. They should have adopted fair play. By knowingly exploiting the glitch, the team of players gave the impression of cheating.
On the other hand, other members of the community are calling the legendary raid as valid. Since the developer didn’t inform players on the glitch and it didn’t fix it, the glitch can be seen as a general perk.
