Jump into the action.

Another weekend has passed. Thus, another Trials of Osiris event has been adjudicated by Brother Vance. Justice is blind. Bungie User Research is not.


This image is either (A) a microscopic thermal image of a spider’s head or (B) a tactical heatmap of where you spent your Time on Pantheon last week.


If you were there, you know that winning nine battles in the Crucible is about much more than just spending time. You also tend to jump a lot when you’re under fire. The hot zones in this heatmap track where you went Airborne. In the blue-zones, you were much more grounded.

Trials is back tomorrow at 10AM Pacific time. The next map we’ll be tracking will be a mystery until then.

Please Note: We know the PVE endgame aficionados among you would like similar treatment. Bungie User Research will be back next week with a spectral analysis of Skolas’ cell from the Prison of Elders.


Like Referees – with Banhammers.

The Security Response Team at Bungie keeps a watchful eye on the world of Destiny. Their charge is to take action on all threats to the player experience. Their work is vital, but the heroes are unsung. This is to say that we don’t celebrate the restrictions we impose on cheaters.

You are welcome to be a part of their process – even encouraged. If you want to get their attention, please use the tools we’ve built into the game. Player reports and game data are the evidence we weigh behind closed doors. Your in-game report is infinitely more effective than a forum indictment.


Thanks for joining the cause to keep Destiny a fair fight for all.

Now… This is for all you new people.

Everyone Fights. No one quits.

We’ve seen you backing out of matches on final approach in your ships because you saw formidable opponents on the other team. That tactic could earn you a restriction from future Trials of Osiris events.

And, we’ll see you at E3. That’s right. You might have seen mention of Bungie this or Destiny that on E3 schedules. We’ll have some things to tease.


Elder Cipher Trouble


Currently, there are a few issues with the Elder Cipher Bounties that can drop from the higher level challenge Arenas in the Prison of Elders. We’re aware of the issues and are actively investigating their causes. We apologize for any inconvenience.
