A Destiny 2 player has found himself on the receiving end of a 750-power tier without putting in the graft, thanks to a glitch in the game.
The title's Season of Opulence kicked off this week, leaving the fanbase eager to participate in the Destiny 2 Crown of Sorrow raid, as completion leaves players with a 750 power cap. However, one player was able to harness the light without putting in the work and going straight past the requisite loot haul.
The player managing to reach 750 in a matter of hours past the release of the Season of Opulence is the result of a glitch linked to his Gambit Infamy rank. The glitch allowed the player to continuously reset his Gambit Infamy rank and claim a reward every time, so it was only a matter of time before he was able to get his hands on max power level gear and reach the 750 cap.
A video has been uploaded to YouTube, with the Destiny 2 player demonstrating this. His Gambit Infamy rank stays at 15,000 after the reset and he isn't sure how it's happening, as he claims that he doesn't know how to replicate the glitch.
The real odd thing there is that his Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy rank starts off at 15,000 and not zero. Infamy ranks are meant to be reset at the end of a season, so he should have had a fresh start. Instead, he's weirdly kicked off at max Infamy points, something that should be linked to a glitch.
Players who have had their Gambit Infamy rank reset at the beginning of the Season of opulence are unlikely to experience this glitch. However, there should be a few other players around who have been impacted by it. If it's more widespread than we're imagining, Bungie will most likely look into it with haste.
No one wants a bunch of level 750 Guardians running around the Crucible, especially if they haven't earned the stripes.
