This Means War. AimJunkies Fire Back at Bungie In Destiny 2 Copyright Case

Now the cheat maker is gathering evidence against Bungie

AimJunkies, a cheat maker for Destiny 2 has fired back at the game’s developers Bungie, issuing subpoenas in order to obtain information which it intends to use to back up claims of its work not being copyright infringement.

In early 2022, Bungie alleged copyright infringement and breach of contract against AimJunkies for Destiny 2 “hacks”, however, much of the case was dismissed by the court.

The court allowed Bungie more time to reinstate its case and after a couple of weeks, the developers alleged that AimJunkies had reverse-engineered and copied the software code for Destiny 2. 

In a press release shared with TorrentFreak, AimJunkies has fired back at Bungie, stating that its software is similar to Steam overlays and other available products. It also disputes claims of causing the developers grievous harm to Destiny 2 via the software. 

The statement reads, “Bungie also claims that we caused grievous harm to their game when in fact some of their most popular months of player counts and sales were during the time AimJunkies offered their software products.” 

AimJunkies is now issuing subpoenas to PayPal, Valve, and Google to gather evidence against Bungie. 

The cheat maker also goes on to mention that it should be working with Bungie to improve its game. 

“We at Phoenix Digital Group have offered to work with Bungie to acquire multiple solutions to their problem,” reads the statement. “Foremost we believe would be to implement our features in a version of their game for distribution, but their pride and bully mentality prohibits them from thinking out of the box.”

Bungie was also accused of attempts to make cheating illegal, simply “because they cannot govern their own players.”

The video game developers recently prevailed against a different cheat company Elite Boss Tech, and they were ordered to pay Bungie $13.5 million in damages.
