It’s possible to see cheaters in every online game. Usually, they get banned in the end, creating a new account or stopping playing the game. That is a typical scenario, but some are getting mad and choosing other ways. Here’s a recent case, a Destiny 2 player gets banned from the game and threatens the developer Bungie. The cheater’s threats are on the company’s radar, and they filed a lawsuit against the cheater.
Generally, you don’t get sued if you use cheat software in an online game. But the story’s cheater isn’t only cheating; he thinks the developers will get his ban removed. As expected, developer studio Bungie sues the cheater for the employees’ safety.
Destiny 2 Cheater Threatens The Employees, and Bungie Sues Him
Leone, the cheater, shares a few tweets about burning Bungie’s office and thinks of the best way of revenge. He asks about the location of Bungie’s headquarters and says if the information he got is accurate, he will reward people who helped him. Some of the tweets are deleted, but Bungie gave them a place in the file. The file contains every detail worth sharing with the court, and Bungie is also mad for using third-party software in Destiny 2. You can also reach a Bungie developer’s tweet here.
Leone also said he would burn the headquarters to get revenge. This threat is the biggest key to making the cheater guilty. There are a lot of tweets, but most of them are deleted, but you can reach a few from Kotaku.
A lesson from this story is that you shouldn’t use cheating software. Even if you use, if you don’t want to get in jail, don’t threaten the developers or try to harm the company for their decision about your account. The employees also have a heart, and getting intimidated by the people they work for isn’t their first expectation from their job.
