Bandai Namco Confirms Experience Gain Bug in Blue Protocol

Bandai Namco confirmed the existence of a bug in Blue Protocol that allowed players to gain experience points without actively participating in the game. The experience bug is known in Japanese as “stealth PT.” Using said bug would infringe on the Terms of Service for the game. Bandai Namco issued a warning to players that are caught intentionally utilizing, and the company confirmed that they may be subject to an in-game warning or even the suspension of service.

The stealth PT bug would activate after a player joins a party and undertakes a series of unspecified steps to activate it. Once active, players enter a state in which they are not members of the party, but would still obtain experience and other benefits from the party they previously joined.

Bandai Namco reminded players that while idling after joining a party to receive its benefits is not a bug, this still infringes on the Terms of Service of the game, and players that do this might be subject to in-game warnings or suspension of service as well. The company also asked players to participate in online environments responsibly, and ensure that other’s experiences are not impacted negatively.

Blue Protocol is currently available to play on Windows PC in Japan. PS4 and PS5 versions will appear at a later date. The game will release worldwide in 2024 after a delay. As a reminder, the new Blitz Lancer class will appear in Blue Protocol on August 2023.
