Destiny 2 Prestige Raid launch to go ahead without cheese fix

Destiny 2's delayed Prestige raid mode will now launch without the exploit fix Bungie has been working on

54287

The harder Prestige version of the raid was originally scheduled to arrive this week, but was pushed back seven days so Bungie could fix an exploit.

Now, Bungie has said it cannot reliably patch the exploit in time - but doesn't want to delay the Prestige raid any longer.

Instead, it has found a middle ground: a way to verify whether players are using the exploit to ensure the fireteam who finishes the Prestige raid first is fairly determined.

Bungie has, for obvious reasons, never spelled out what this exploit is - but it is believed to be a way to stop additional enemies spawning during the raid's final boss encounter. Naughty.

Bungie promised details on the raid's upcoming Challenge Mode next week - where encounters are remixed for greater reward.

Finally, Bungie acknowledging the Destiny community's discussions about how to improve Destiny's 2's endgame.

The Prestige Raid will still begin on October 18 at 10AM Pacific [6pm UK time]
