Bungie Sues Cheat Distributor for $6.7 Million Ahead of Destiny 2 Lightfall Release

Before the release of Lightfall, Bungie plans to take additional action against cheat distributors and creators. In particular, the Destiny 2 developer intends to file a lawsuit against a new cheat distributor for $6.7 million in damages.

It’s an exciting moment to be a Destiny 2 player, as Bungie has been making significant adjustments to the game in preparation for the upcoming Lightfall expansion. The developers have implemented several quality-of-life modifications to various systems and redesigned the modification system. These updates will be available in the release of Lightfall on February 28, 2023.

Bungie Files Lawsuits Against Cheat Developers to Protect Destiny 2 Community

Bungie appears to be aiming not only to change the features included with the looter shooter but also to enforce rules on the gamers themselves. The producers of Halo have recently filed lawsuits against many developers of cheats to safeguard the player community against cheating software being introduced into the game.

Bungie has been looking to sue to cheat source LaviCheats, saying that they would like at least $2,000 for each fraud download, which is the latest in a string of litigation suits that the company has been looking to bring. The cheat’s 2,790 downloads resulted in a lawsuit with a total value of $6.7 million, including other damages.

Bungie has said they are seeking a “substantial damage award” in the lawsuit. This is because, without it, Bansal, aka LaviCheats, would be “unlikely to halt his unlawful conduct.” They then illustrated this illegal action by pointing out that Bansal’s response to a post on their forum concerning the complaints was to scream, “Bungie attorneys, you suck my nuts!”

This is not the only time Bungie has a lawsuit against a company that develops cheats; in 2021, Bungie filed a $13.5 million lawsuit against a company that provides cheats and called it Elite Boss Tech.

LeviCheats still needs to respond, and it is highly possible that the resolution of this litigation will take a significant amount of time. On the other hand, it is encouraging to see that Bungie is working hard to eradicate cheaters from Destiny 2 as we go toward Lightfall.
