Bungie acted swiftly by disabling four popular Destiny 2 armor mods due to a severe game-breaking bug. The Solstice event in Destiny 2 brought excitement as players eagerly pursued their armors, glows, and the new rocket launcher tied to the event. Additionally, a new patch presented players with more rewards.
However, the event encountered issues as some players discovered an exploit that allowed for infinite Super and ability energy. Acknowledging the potential impact on game balance, Bungie promptly intervened. A Tweet from the Bungie Help account confirmed the temporary deactivation of the Bolstering Detonation, Focusing Strike, Impact Induction, and Momentum Transfer mods until a resolution could be implemented.

The reason behind the timeout of these mods was initially unclear, but an individual known as Exploit Curator Cheese Forever shed light on the situation. Through a video demonstration, it became evident that the exploit required rapid flipping of armor pieces, leading to almost instantaneous Super and Ability recharge. Now, players await a fix from Bungie to restore the balance and fair gameplay in Destiny 2.
