Bungie Removing Gauntlets From Destiny 2?
Destiny 2 has launched and has, by all accounts, been a massive success. Bungie took its game down for several hours today to complete routine maintenance, and then surprised everyone by tweeting out the information below.
2/2 Our deepest apologies. This does NOT represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms.

Judging from the reactions online, this announcement has come as quite a surprise to everyone as online discussion of the gauntlets had been minimal. The gauntlets in question are a set of legendary Hunter gauntlets called “Road Complex AA1”.
At the moment, it’s not clear whether Bungie plan on changing the design of the gauntlets or removing them from the game entirely – they’re a high level legendary drop though, and with guardians racing for raid-readiness before tomorrow, anyone with them equipped would no doubt be very upset to see them lost from their inventory.
What are your thoughts on Bungie’s actions? Would you have noticed the symbolism if it hadn’t been pointed out? Are you affected? Let us know in the comments below.
