Bungie Postpones Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine for Two Weeks Thanks to Silly Walk Glitch

Monty Python you wily rascals!

Bungie will be delaying Destiny 2's Trials of the Nine competitive multiplayer mode for two weeks after players discovered a glitch using the "Silly Walk" emote.

The "Bureaucratic Walk" emote (styled after the Monty Python joke) can apparently be used to clip out of bounds in competitive multiplayer modes, giving players an advantage where they can camp out of bounds and not be harmed. Bungie is addressing the situation by postponing Trials of the Nine while they work on the issue. Anyone who previously purchased the emote can still use it.

A Bungie blog post says that a fix is planned for the first week of November and that Trials of the Nine is set to return on November 3.

I wish I could say that this was the first time Trials of the Nine had to be altered thanks to out of bound glitches, or that an accessory item caused issues for Bungie—but alas both have happened before.

A previous out of bound glitch in the last Trials of Nine changed the playlist from a Survival match to a Countdown match after an out of bound glitch was uncovered. Likewise, Bungie had to issue an apology after one of its armors was found to co-opt a white supremacist meme.

With a PC launch fast approaching, Bungie is probably very much in work mode. Though I fear it might be affecting the game's quality assurance.
