Bungie Disables Trials Of Osiris Indefinitely In Destiny 2 To Combat Player Match-Fixing Method

Match-fixing in Destiny 2

It looks like Destiny 2 players will be waiting even longer to jump back into its Trials of Osiris mode as Bungie has disabled the mode indefinitely thanks to recent exploits being taken advantage of in the PvP mode.

Destiny 2 players have been match-fixing in the Trials mode, resulting in the PvP mode being taken down last weekend. Essentially known as the Hakke Emblem Method on the internet, this involves players essentially joining the mode with the Hakke Emblem to signal to the other team that they mean to essentially match fix. Players will message each other and use a random dice roll to decide which side will win and which will forfeit the match. Doing it this way essentially sees groups of players working together to guarantee the outcome of these PvP matches in order to secure the valuable loot players are after in the Trials mode.

Bungie brought Trials of Osiris down last weekend due to what it's calling "an issue" as the reason. However, in this recent installment of This Week At Bungie, the developer has stated that Trials of Osiris will continue to be unavailable this weekend while they investigate.

"Last weekend, Trials of Osiris was disabled due to unexpected issues. While these issues are being investigated, Trials of Osiris will be unavailable to players. We will have more information when it becomes available."

This was also made known via a Tweet on the Bungie Help twitter account.

Surprisingly (or not, depending on your view), this isn't even the only exploit being cheesed by Destiny 2 players this week. A way to get double Guardians into raids, Trials and more has also been discovered, allowing groups of players to game the system and take down some of the hardest content in the MMOFPS in a way never intended by Bungie.
