Report Suspected Cheating


Bungie takes the reports of suspected cheating very seriously. We use these reports and our own tools to investigate players who may be manipulating network connections and other forms of cheating or violations of Bungie's Terms of Use.


Posting the names of players on our forums you believe to be cheating in Destiny is a violation of our Code of Conduct and may result in a forum ban.



What Qualifies as Cheating?

For more information on what Bungie considers when investigating reports of cheating, see our Destiny Account Restriction and Banning Policies article.
