Last year, Bungie filed a lawsuit against alleged Destiny 2 cheat maker AimJunkies claiming copyright infringement. Then, earlier this year, a judge dismissed most of that case, forcing Bungie to refile its lawsuit. Now, AimJunkies is fighting back, claiming in a press release that the former Halo dev is wrong in its claims that AimJunkies’ software caused any harm. What’s more, the company suggests that Bungie is throwing “shit” at “the wall” in court in an effort to see what sticks.
As reported by TorrentFreak, AimJunkies is firing back at Bungie via press release following its earlier victory in court against the studio behind Destiny. That victory happened back in April of this year, when a federal judge dismissed most of Bungie’s lawsuit against the cheat maker, siding with AimJunkies and recommending the two parties use arbitration for most of the claims made in the lawsuit as laid out in Bungie’s own License Agreement. However, the court did give Bungie a chance to refile its lawsuit, and it did just that in May.
Earlier this week, in a press release TorrentFreak received from AimJunkies as well as in court docs, the cheat maker confirmed it is working on filling subpoenas against Valve, PayPal, and Bungie in an effort to gather evidence to disprove Bungie’s claims that the cheating software caused Destiny 2 “grievous harm.” AimJunkies says that, in fact, during the time when its cheating software was available, Destiny 2 allegedly had some of its most popular months based on sales and player numbers.
