With the launch of Curse of Osiris, there’s plenty of new stuff in Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space resisting the urge to spend money to change the colors of their helmets. There’s also a gun that’s just about wrecking everyone.
And the people rejoiced, for grenades had become more powerful. Except pulse grenades. Because fuck pulse grenades.
Say you’re in charge of a 750-person company that develops and manages a massive, complicated video game. Every day you’re making hundreds of decisions both big and small.

Just weeks after developer Bungie erroneously banned a wave of players on Destiny 2 for PC, a new wave of bans has hit the first-person shooter. And with that, a new round of players is claiming that they were banned unjustly.
Bungie says it has fixed Destiny 2's infamous “Bureaucratic Walk” emote, which was allowing players to glitch through walls to access parts of the game that they shouldn’t have been able to access.
