Last Friday, shortly after the launch of Destiny 2’s new dungeon, players were booted. It didn’t matter what activity you were in, even social spaces weren’t safe: you could barely break into a sprint before succumbing to one of the network bugs that Bungie has given evocative names like “CALABRES‘ and ‘WEASEL‘.

Within hours, the game’s API was taken offline, meaning its own web and mobile apps stopped working, as well as the many third-party gear managers players use to swap gear and move items. That in itself isn’t unusual for Destiny 2. These apps are often unavailable for a few hours during major server sniffs or after expansion releases.
