Destiny 2 endless 'Transmat incoming' or 'spawning repeatedly' issue under investigation, confirms Bungie

Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Developed and published by the now Sony-owned gaming Studio Bungie, Destiny 2 is one of the most played online multiplayer titles on Steam.

Released in 2017, the free-to-play game has received several expansion packs and content updates that help keep it feel fresh for new and existing players.

But over the years, players have had their fair share of bugs and issues.


Having said that, many recently complained about issues such as the game crashing or stuck on loading when entering the Tower to acquire gear and items from Banshee-44 and Grasp of Avarice Dungeon’s final boss not moving at all.

Adding another one to the list, Destiny 2 players are now stuck in an endless Transmat incoming glitch in the rift when playing Iron Banner matches (1,2,3,4,5). The problem is causing them to spawn repeatedly.

Many are frustrated and say the Iron Banner matches are much worse than Gambit. Below are some reports from Destiny 2 players complaining about the endless Transmat incoming glitch.


Just won a game of Rift because we were stuck in a loop and the enemy team left. Banked a spark and the next round it didn’t appear. Instead of us being able to kill each other until time ran out we kept getting sent back to transmat over and over until the entire enemy team left. Good mode. Good programming 👍

New iron banner mode, endless transmit. 6 Transmats in a row. We’re losing 0-2 – timer is at 0:00 – we’re transmatting again and again and again. 2 matches played, 2 matches wiped. You’ve turned iron banner into a much worse version of gambit, and gambit was already in a sorry state. It hurts – writing this. I got so giddy when I saw that Iron Banner came back, expecting something that would be entertaining – instead, we got Overwatch. Destinywatch. Iron destinywatch…..This is sad. Who wanted this?

Thankfully, Destiny 2 developers (Bungie) were quick to acknowledge the endless Transmat incoming glitch causing players to spawn repeatedly and said it is under investigation. But there is no ETA of when it will be fixed.

We are investigating an issue where players will sometimes spawn repeatedly between rounds during Iron Banner matches.

We hope they soon find the root cause of the issue and fix it in the coming days so Destiny 2 players can enjoy Iron Banner matches.
