Report Suspected Cheating and Poor Behavior


This article outlines the process for reporting suspected cheating and other poor player behavior.

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. See below for more information about reporting suspected cheating and other forms of poor player behavior.


Posting the names of players on our forums you believe to be cheating is a violation of our Code of Conduct and may result in a forum ban because our Security Team does not monitor our forums. Players should use the contact form below to report any suspected cheating. 


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.

Report Suspected Cheating Contact Form


The most effective way to report a player is through the in-game system as outlined in the “Report a Player” sections. However, players that are unable to submit a report through the in-game system may fill out the Report Player Contact Form with the requested information.

Please be aware of the following prior to submitting a Contact Form:

  • If you are not confident that a player was cheating, do not use this form.
  • Many things that may at first appear to involve cheating can be explained by other things, such as unintentional poor internet connectivity.
  • Abuse of this contact form may result in account restrictions.
  • Fraudulent reports and submissions unrelated to cheating may result in a restriction or ban on your account.
  • All contact forms submissions are used for data collection purposes and to investigate potential player-facing issues. The form submissions are automatically sorted and are not guaranteed to be read or responded to by a Bungie employee.

The following items can be beneficial to investigations. Please provide them if you are able to:

  • Post-Game Carnage Report (PGCR)
  • Links to Videos or Captures of game-play that showcase cheating
  • Other evidence that would indicate that a player is cheating

Reporting Other Player Behavior


Players can use either in-game methods or to report poor behavior, malicious communications, or any content that breaks the Code of Conduct.
