‘Destiny 2’ has been down for a week due to DDoS attacks


Destiny 2 is in the midst of one of the worst crises in its history. No, nothing that has players complaining about boring seasons or broken loot. In fact, Destiny 2 is very close to being unplayable, and has been for a solid week, due to DDoS attacks that Bungie has confirmed. This is a rarity, as they almost never say publicly that such attacks are happening.

Bungie hasn’t been able to get a handle on these attacks, where you can do Play the game for a spell, as it’s usually not completely offline, but you never know when you’ll be thrown out, whether you’re the one taking down a raid boss or defeating him in order to reach the lighthouse. Be the one to kill. This is so frustrating that many players have opted not to play at all until it is resolved (including me). And it is not clear when that will happen.

If you want a visual representation of how bad it is, take a look at the playercount line on this Steamchart graph of Destiny 2. This shows in strange ways how unstable DDoS attacks have made the game.

If this doesn’t paint a picture for you, take a look at what a normal game running with no server issues looks like with this same playercount line. Just standard peaks and valleys like heartbeats based on when people play the most. But if Destiny 2’s line was a heartbeat, the patient would die.

We don’t know how long this will last, and some players too Are I’m angry that Bungie doesn’t have better security measures in place to stop them. There are even conspiracy theories that this is Bungie’s own “broken server technology” which is a pretty dumb idea because Bungie isn’t going to lie about this, and they’re trying to keep players from bleeding out. Want to get the game back online as soon as possible. Their own technique they may have fixed by now, but as you can see from that chart, it’s a completely continuous attack that they are constantly fighting against. And no, dedicated servers won’t fix it.

DDoS attacks are extremely difficult to deal with, and finding the culprit is even more difficult. Bungie is suing everyone for harming its game and its community and staff in various ways, from cheaters to copyright strikers to serial harassers, but this is hurting the game more than anything else , and this is one of the worst server conditions I have ever seen in the game. And we’ve been through a lot. While DDoSers are sometimes found and prosecuted, it almost never happens in the gaming space to target multiplayer servers, so I don’t know if justice will be served here. The best they can hope for is to somehow stop this attack once and for all.

This is a difficult situation. Players can go ahead and play one of the thirty other good games that came out this year for a while, but Bungie is struggling to get it right. Hopefully they can do so soon. Reset tomorrow.
