I've seen tons of misinformation regarding how Bungie needs to go about dealing with hackers.
This will simply be an informational post to raise awareness on HOW to fight cheating.
IP bans will not work. VPN's get around this.
Hardware bans (ban their PC) will not work because you can spoof your hardware ID.
Account bans will not work because the game is free to play and you can hit soft cap (960) in about 2 days.
The game needs anti-cheat software that detects the injecting of files foreign to the game files of destiny and bans the account immediately. There needs to be a checks and balancing system, even if it's a file that reads the TOTAL number of files in a game and makes sure all the necessary ones are there. For example, if the D2 game file had 75 individual files, and you opened it with 76 you'd be banned. If you delete a file to make room for another file, the game would recognize an essential file missing and ban you as well.
Just thought i'd share some knowledge to get discussions about hacking a bit more educated.
Thanks for reading!
