Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine Map Changed Due to Player Exploit
Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine was supposed to take place on the Altar of Flame map on Mercury for its second week. Some players were able to get into the event and play on the map, however within two hours an exploit was found which allowed players to exit the maps playing area and shoot other Guardians through walls. This exploit is a surefire way to get kills without dying, which immediately caused irritation among the online players.
Rather than let the problem persist, Bungie has stepped in to change the new location back to Countdown on Eternity, the same game mode and map that was featured in the first week of the Trials of the Nine event. While the team over at Bungie may feature Altar of Flame as a Trials map in the future, the problem was too big for just a simple hotfix; thus putting the Altar location on hold for now.
Due to a bug where players can escape the environment on Altar of Flame, we’ve changed this week’s Trials to Countdown on Eternity.

Bungie’s willingness and speed in solving issues such as this is a good sign for players of both the PvE and PvP modes of the game. Unfortunately an issue seen in the latest Nightfall has yet to be resolved, which makes the mode much harder than was intended. It’s still possible to complete, just extremely difficult to do so. Maintenance is planned for early next week which will hopefully fix some of the bugs players are currently finding.
Destiny 2 is available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the release to PC arriving on October 24th. Let us know your thoughts on the change to Destiny 2’s Trials map this week and more in the comments section below.
