BUNGIE PC SECURITY

The Bungie Security team has been working on a variety of projects to sharpen their tools for cheat detection. In the coming weeks Bungie will begin rolling out a new security measure for newly created accounts on PC. Their hope is that this deters some players from breaking the Code of Conduct.

For a quick explanation of what’s coming, our friends from the Security team will be taking the stage to walk you through the process of SMS verification.

What is SMS verification?

Bungie is implementing a quick account validation step for free-to-play players who want to access our high-stakes PvP modes in Destiny 2 on PC. Free-to-play accounts (PC only) will need to link and verify a cell phone number to their accounts via Bungie.net before being able to access those activities.

What activities are high-stakes? 

Trials of Osiris, Iron Banner, and Competitive PvP playlists are examples. As this feature rolls out, Bungie will be looking to how it can grow, and potentially expanding it to alternate activities in the future.

Why is Bungie doing this? 

Unscrupulous players can negatively impact everyone’s gameplay experience and undermine the hard-earned achievements of others. Bungie takes the threat of cheating seriously. Bungie will continue implementing systems to help verify that accounts engaging in Destiny 2 activities are honoring the Code of Conduct and Terms of Service.

What do you need to do? 

If you are a free-to-play Destiny 2 PC player you will receive a notice in-game the first time you try to access a protected activity. This will provide you with a “Verify Now” link to follow to Bungie.net and process your SMS linking. When you enter your cell phone number and request a verification code you will receive a quick text message with “Bungie Code: ######”.  Once you enter that code on the Bungie.net page to complete your verification process you can sign back into the game to get immediate access to the activity you want to play.

Once this feature is live, free-to-play PC players will see an image in-game which will walk them through the signup process.

For announcements regarding this security rollout, please follow @BungieHelp on Twitter. Bungie will also release some help articles over the next week to give full details on the upcoming feature! As a reminder, if you encounter any players that you suspect of cheating or breaking the terms of service, please use the in-game report tool and submit a report using our contact form on Bungie.net.

ABOUT LOOT FROM BUNGIE.NET

Here is some info about Loot from the latest This Week at Bungie article by Bungie.

Since Beyond Light launched, Bungie has been working through a whirlwind of feedback. What feels good, what needs work, and most importantly, how are you feeling? Here are some short term plans the development team is working on.

From the Bungie Development Team: As Beyond Light has launched we’ve been tracking your feedback around loot, particularly weapons, and wanted to take a moment to let you know how we are processing it. Today we’re going to talk mostly about the short-term, with more information to follow in the future around the long-term as we work through those problems.

Infusion caps are intended to help keep Destiny 2 evolving and ensure that every release the new rewards are exciting and relevant to the meta. However, we agree with your feedback that there’s currently not enough variety in the world loot weapons available to players this season.

To that end we are adding back in a selection of weapons that will help alleviate this issue. We will also be watching to see how the landscape changes with the addition of weapons from Season 12 and this week’s Raid launch. We also agree that getting near-cap weapons from random world drops is frustrating. Thus, we are removing those from the pool, and are weighting drops more heavily towards newer weapons.

Here’s a list of adjustments to the world loot legendary weapons pool you’ll see with our November 24 hotfix:

  • Remove all legendary weapons that hit their infusion cap at the end of this season
  • Add all of the Seventh Seraph weapons from Season 10
  • Add all of the Season 11 seasonal and planetary reprisal weapons
  • Weight drop chances so the newer an item is, the more likely it is to drop.

While we are not yet ready to dive into the long-term strategy yet, Bungie is listening to feedback and watching how the player build landscape evolves over these first few weeks of Beyond Light, and incorporating that feedback as Bungie plans out future Seasons.
