Bungie recently swung the banhammer at Destiny players who have logged into the game on a modified console, the developer revealed in its latest weekly update.
“Something else that deserves mention is that the BanHammer has been a-swingin’. Ninja Justice is always swift and final,” Bungie noted in the update. Citing “shadowy forces who protect the world of Destiny from shadowy activities,” the developer has this to say about the bans:
“We routinely review Banhammer actions to ensure that they are applied accurately and fairly. A review of the bans applied over the last week shows that all of the affected accounts had logged into Destiny on a modified console at some point.”
The actual number of banned players wasn’t mentioned, but Bungie did warn players to “Play nice! And use the boxes that your favorite retailer ?gave? you.”
Lord Saladin will be returning to the Tower on December 16 for the Iron Banner event. During this visit, players’ reputation rank will be reset and Saladin will have level 31 armor available to earn.
