“We routinely review Banhammer actions to ensure that they are applied accurately and fairly,” Bungie said. “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.”
Bungie didn’t explicitly say that the banned users were using their modded consoles to cheat, but it’s safe to assume that is the case. A quick search on YouTube will reveal several videos of players using god mode, no cooldown, infinite ammo, and increased movement speed cheats on what appear to be modded last generation consoles.
“Be careful out there,” Bungie said. “Play nice! And use the boxes that your favorite retailer ‘gave’ you.”
