Bungie will be introducing more anti-cheat measures just as Destiny 2 gets crossplay so everyone will be able to sleep slightly better after a night of farming Trials or Crucible.

Destiny 2 PvP is fun and there is no question about it but it does suffer from numerous issues that are inhibiting its potential. One of them is the cheaters who are ruining the peaks of the game's PvP such as high-ranked Competitive Survival and Trials of Osiris.

This state of the game didn't help when Bungie announced they would add crossplay to Destiny 2 since console and PC players are already hesitant to play with each other. It is for this reason that everyone will probably be glad to hear Bungie will be adding one of the most well-known anti-cheats to Destiny - BattlEye.

BattlEye is by no means perfect and it doesn't mean cheaters will be eradicated overnight. After all, it has had its low points, just like pretty much anything in existence and Rainbow Six Siege players were so disappointed at one point that they  wanted to boycott Ubisoft

That said, the anti-cheat catches and punishes cheaters on a regular basis and if it weren't effective, it wouldn't be employed by one of the biggest shooter games in esports. 

Bungie will reveal more about the new system on August 24, 2021 , but the anti-cheat is expected to go live in Season 15.
