Destiny: watch Atheon shut down a group of cheesers

Destiny players often elect to cheese the final boss of the Vault of Glass raid – but Atheon isn’t keen on the idea.


Destiny will soon be patched to make the Atheon cheese impossible, but for now, it’s possible to kill off the final boss of the Vault of Glass merely by forcing him off the edge of the stage.

Except when this happens.

Youtuber legolas8825 was pretty surprised by this eventuality.

I’ve never cheesed Atheon but I gather this isn’t what normally happens. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch or if Bungie has already implemented measures to prevent Atheon from being killed by falls even before the bumpers are put in place. Either way, it’s pretty funny.

If you’re well-prepared and communicate with your teammates, Atheon’s really not hard to beat; the Templar’s much more tricky. Our guide will tell you how to beat the Vault of Glass bosses.
