Bungie is aware of the pesky 3-peeking in Destiny 2, and the developer is looking into solutions. Due to the complex nature of the problem, however, nothing is set in stone for a fix just yet.
A community manager for the multiplayer game tweeted about the growing outcry surrounding 3-peeking, the practice of using a third-person view to gain advantage in PvP. Between the sword and emotes, players have a number of ways they can take a look around corners that gives them a better vantage point than their opponents. As this is happening because of regular weapons and actions, finding a compromise is not easy. Swords are a commonly used heavy weapon that forms part of Destiny 2’s meta, and emotes are a long-standing source of income the studio wouldn’t want to disrupt too much lest people stop buying.
“The team is aware of the feedback around 3-peeking and currently discussing possible options,” Chris ‘Cozmo23’ Shannon, lead community manager at Bungie, tweeted. “No promises, as we are still investigating what changes are viable since it’s a complicated issue that affects both emotes, swords, and any potential, future third-person weapons.”
