‘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.”
