Bungie‘s highly anticipated shooter Destiny has only been on the market for a few days, and already gamers are finding ways to exploit it. So far, the Destiny hacks have been regulated to unlimited ammo glitches, but something tells us this is only just the beginning.
Although Bungie expected gamers to pour over every inch of Destiny starting on day 1, we doubt they expected players would start looking for exploits so soon. Unfortunately, gamers are a curious folk by nature, and some have discovered ways to increase a weapon’s ammo count to a nearly infinite number.
As readers can see in the video below, several gamers have modded the Xbox 360 version of Destiny to support infinite ammo. And that’s not infinite ammo on just the primary weapons either, but on both the special and heavy weapons as well. As a result, players are free to dump endless shotgun blasts, rockets, or plain ole bullets without concern for reloading.
Thankfully, these infinite ammo mods don’t appear to have made their way to the Crucible – Destiny’s competitive multiplayer – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. It’s also unclear whether these mods can be applied to any version of the game other than the Xbox 360 one. However, given that the PS4 and Xbox One are relatively new pieces of hardware we would be surprised to see them.
Although it is surprising to see mods for Destiny surface so soon after release, the good news is that these infinite ammo glitches likely won’t impact play for others. Had they made their way into competitive multiplayer we might be looking at a different situation, but for now it’s an opt-in situation. Similarly, with the only reported mods occurring on the Xbox 360 version, it’s safe to say a lot of gamers will never come across these modders.
For that matter, it shouldn’t be long before Bungie catches wind of these infinite ammo mods and brings the hammer down with a new update. And since Destiny is an online-focused game, it’s even possible that Microsoft could ban the Xbox Live accounts of those caught hacking the game or using modded consoles.
Game Rant’s coverage of Destiny is only just beginning to ramp up as we delve deeper and deeper into the game. For our thoughts on the story campaign make sure to read our impressions post, and be on the look out for posts on the Crucible multiplayer and the first raid.
