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![divider]

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.
