Another day, another time Bungie puts a stop to in-game farming when it comes to Destiny 2. With Season of Arrivals in full swing, many Guardians are boots on ground trying to grind for the best gear and complete all of those luscious triumphs, but it looks like one way to farm Eververse engrams using the Ghost Shell perk has been quickly shut down.
The news of disabling the Ghost Shell perk in Destiny 2 comes by way of the Bungie Support Twitter account where it was shared that the Seeker of Brilliance perk for the Contender’s Ghost Shell has been shut down. Though they didn’t explicitly state that the farming was the reason behind the decision to disable, it didn’t take long before Guardians found out the company’s reasoning on their own.
They patched AFK farming asap, patched Leviathan ghost perk asap but yet haven’t done anything to cheaters and Beaver codes.

To say that people were a little upset would be a tad understatement, especially with the increased amount of “beaver” server connection issues that have been prevalent.
Yes, let’s disable a perk that was designed to work in this way so as not to ruin our precious eververse store even though it really isn’t. Oh and thanks Jerry, let’s mark this as an issue even though it clearly isn’t, that’ll trick the player base.

Im still extra pissed dont get me wrong. And I hope that they simply patch farming only a single encounter, while still letting its functionality work through full clears, but knowing bungie that won’t be the case.

Hard disagree with this one. I didn’t do any farming for this myself, but it’s still obvious that this was in no way an exploit or an issue. This is literally what the Ghost Shell is designed to do.

While there are other issues, such as the connection glitches, some fixes are easier to implement than others. That being said, many players are being vocal that they feel that Bungie focuses on the wrong issues for quick fixes, especially when those issues affect ways that reward players for grinding and many times, reward them in ways that was the original intent.
