Bureaucratic Walk Emote Removed From Destiny 2 to Stop Players Glitching Into Walls
Similar to the first installment, Destiny 2 also features an expansive world with several areas that are not intended for players to explore; at least not for the time being. However, there are still some ways through which the game can be exploited to allow traversing obstacles and entering out-of-bounds areas of the game.
The “Bureaucratic Walk” emote was introduced to Destiny 2 as a tribute to John Cleese’s classic striding walk from The Ministry of Silly Walks sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe. It, though, was perfect to glitch through the environment and explore red zones of the game.
Earlier today, Bungie stealthily removed the emote from Destiny 2 (via Eurogamer) to put an end to all manner of wall-glitching shenanigans. Since there has been no official statement from the developer, it is unknown as to when the mote will return. There is also the possibility that Bungie was facing copyright infringement and had to permanently disable the mote from the game.
Until now, the Bureaucratic Walk was used by players to discover pre-existing hidden rooms in Destiny 2. These are possibly part of upcoming content and expansion packs, or areas that were scrapped during the development phase. In either case, Bungie wants its player-base to stick within the prescribed boundaries of the world.
Destiny 2 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The highly anticipated sequel will arrive for PC next week on October 24.
