This week, Destiny players discovered a glitch that allowed them to get infinite ammo for certain weapons. This isn’t gamebreaking in cooperative modes, but can destroy the balance of competitive PvP matches by giving players infinite rockets that can kill in one shot. While they fix this glitch, Bungie are putting Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner on hold.
The weekly Destiny blog on Bungie.net has a section that acknowledges how this glitch would affect the highly competitive Trials of Osiris, a tournament-style PvP mode that only opens on weekends.
In Trials, Heavy Ammo only spawns once per match because it allows players to use a powerful weapon that can kill in one shot. Bungie are suspending this mode until they can fix the glitch.
Trials of Osiris is cancelled for this weekend.
The thought of a Trials map being renamed “Rocket Town” sends a shiver up our spine. The esteemed Brother Vance will be ordered to stand down. Trials of Osiris will return of course – and that right soon – but we’re going to ensure that we can restore the Heavy economy to its usual balance.
Iron Banner, another limited-time PvP event is also on hold until this glitch is fixed. Just like Trials of Osiris, Iron Banner is an endgame activity that awards powerful weapons and armor to the best players. The competition would be much less skill-based if everyone had access to unlimited rockets.
Every other multiplayer and cooperative mode in Destiny will be available, but the limited-time Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner events are being held back until this glitch is fixed.
