‘Treasure Cave 2.0’

Published on: Sep 25, 2014 @ 23:44

With the most recent patch, Bungie has made it more difficult for some people to acquire very quick loot via the “loot cave” exploit. It had a good run, but ultimately this extremely quick way to earn loot was just not what Bungie intended and they wanted to reduce “the effectiveness of a humbling number of economy exploits.”

“Shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn’t our dream for how Destiny is played,” the Destiny Dev Team wrote. “Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities.”

Soon, the following areas may not be as efficient as they are now, so if you’re the type of player that wants your loot fast and easy, get in-game and start shooting!

Of course if you’re hoping to find Legendary Engrams/gear this way, don’t hold your breath, as it is highly unlikely. It will likely be much quicker (and is recommended) to just complete some Kill Orders from the Queen, or rank up with other Factions so you can purchase a Legendary item from them.

  • Toh Tohs

    this weapon is the scourge of my existence when the Hob Goblin shoots it lol
    Absolutely destroys hunters.

  • Nater-ater

    Remember, even though it says it’s a fusion rifle, it’s a primary weapon, and it is single shot, so it is essentially a scout rifle

      As I posted above; Elemental damage is what makes this a very extraordinary weapon, as the void assault rifle is not that great IMO due to fire rate.

  • Brandon Adams

    Farming for loot=doing work in a game. Pass….I will stick to enjoying the game for what it is.

  • brady

    why patch it? it helps low level players get passed the mission, strike they are stuck on.

  • Krazey Kracker

    I got the vex mythoclast in the second official hard mode clear. FYI it’s just a weird scout riffle I was actually disappointed. *PrimeGuard*
