Let’s dive into the wild world of the D2 crafting glitch and check out how you can do the Ammit AR2 glitch in Destiny 2. Bungie said that they won’t be fixing the glitch anytime soon, so let’s check out if you wish to be a part of this chaos.

How does the D2 crafting glitch work in Destiny 2?
The glitch in question centers around crafting, where a sneaky exploit allows players to merge existing weapons with a plethora of other crafted ones. The result? You can now slap exotic perks onto legendary weapons or fuse two legendary weapons together, creating absurd combinations. Imagine an IKELOS with Osteo Striga rounds or an Ammit auto rifle paired with an aggressive shotgun frame, unleashing a torrent of ten thousand rounds a minute.
Initially, players were concerned about the impact on competitive modes like the Trial of Osiris. Still, it quickly became evident that this glitch was much more than just a one-shot wonder. The entire Destiny 2 landscape transformed into a battlefield of unprecedented chaos, with mind-boggling combinations of perks and abilities tearing through Crucible matches and shredding endgame activities. Machine gun grenade launchers were making mincemeat of bosses, and mutant fusion rifles were downing them in just four shots.
How to do the Ammit AR2 glitch?
Now, the question on everyone’s mind is, can you join this wild party? Surprisingly, Bungie has not disabled the glitch yet, leaving players to revel in the mayhem. The process is easier on PC, where you cap frames to 30 fps and use a “blank” weapon to imprint perks on and the weapons you want to draw perks from. The trick is to click on one weapon, then spam click on the second one before the screen switches back to the first weapon.
On consoles, it’s a bit trickier, but players are resorting to creative methods like slowing down their consoles or clogging up RAM usage to extend the timing window for the glitch. However, a word of caution: some aspects of the glitch might fall into Bungie’s “network manipulation” territory, possibly leading to bans. So, while it’s fun, it’s not entirely risk-free.
Here’s a clearer instruction list for both platforms:
- Go to video settings and cap frames to 30 fps.
- Enter the “Reshape weapons” section where you’ll need both a “blank” weapon to imprint the perks on and the weapons you want to pull from that are already leveled.
- Click on one weapon you want to pull perks or frames from, then quickly spam click on the second one before the screen switches to the first weapon. This can sometimes be done side-by-side or by positioning your cursor and spam clicking the second weapon after you switch pages.
- The process is the same as on PC, but it’s a bit harder to do. Some players are resorting to methods like starting massive downloads to slow down their consoles or opening multiple games to clog their RAM usage on their PCs in order to extend the timing window.
The risks and rewards
Should you take the plunge into this glitch-induced madness? Bungie has stated that they won’t ban players for exploiting this issue, as long as it doesn’t involve network manipulation tools or external scripting. However, there’s a catch. These overpowered perks will eventually be erased from the weapons, and if things get too out of control, Bungie might take “drastic measures.”
Additionally, there’s a constant threat of a rollback, meaning any loot or achievements you earn during this chaos may not be permanent. It’s a risk versus reward situation, but rest assured, you won’t face a ban for taking part in this wild experiment.
We’re exploring all potential solutions and keeping an eye out in case things get TOO wild and we need to take drastic measures to ensure the health of the game.
In the meantime, let’s all have some fun! Igneous Hammer will come back to Trials ASAP. https://t.co/4UsA1cCaQS

Community is divided
Destiny 2 now finds itself at a crossroads. On one hand, players are reveling in the absurdity and chaos created by the crafting glitch. On the other, there’s concern about how these modded weapons devalue some of the game’s toughest achievements. The Destiny 2 community is divided between those enjoying the mayhem and those worried about the game’s integrity.
As of now, Bungie hasn’t set a timeline for fixing the glitch. Players curious about the fate of their modded weapons will have to stay tuned to Bungie’s official channels for updates. The Destiny 2 landscape may never be the same again, and whether that’s for better or worse remains to be seen. One thing’s for sure – it’s a wild ride that Destiny 2 players won’t forget anytime soon.
