Bungie needs time to fix emote glitching issues.

About Ed Thorn

Ed's a huge fan of rushing B in CS:GO and grinding it out in Destiny 2. He will not rest until a new Wario Land is announced.

Bungie has decided to postpone the next two weeks of Trials of the Nine due to continued reports of emote glitching in Destiny 2’s Crucible. A fix is planned for the first week of November and Trials of the Nine is currently forecast to resume once more on November 3rd, 2017.

The news was announced in Bungie’s weekly update but didn’t confirm exactly which emote exploits have given players an unfair advantage in the Crucible. It’s most likely related to the Bureaucratic Walk emote that was recently removed from the game.

The Bureaucratic Walk emote had previously available to purchase from the Eververse store, and it wasn’t long before Guardians were using its animation to glitch through walls. This led to Bungie quickly pulling it from the in-game store in order to avoid any more exploits being developed.

Below we've embedded a video which shows how the glitch worked.

It would seem there's no quick fix for this problem and so Trials of the Nine will be inaccessible for the next couple of weeks while Bungie prepares a patch for the start of November.

By necessity, Trials of the Nine must attract and retain a high player count to function as intended, and we imagine it wasn’t an easy decision on Bungie’s part to take this very popular PVP mode offline, even temporarily.

We’ll bring you all the latest on this story as it develops.
