‘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.”

Published on: Sep 23, 2014 @ 15:07 Out in the world on Patrols, you can find Chests, Materials, and Patrol Beacons. Chests and Materials aren’t always present in the same locations. Sometimes they spawn, sometimes they don’t. Patrol Beacon locations are the same, but the specific mission they grant can vary. Patrol activities on each planet are a great way to gain reputation for your desired Faction, as well as Materials, since the missions are so quick and (usually) easy to do. You can search the planet at your leisure, gathering raw Materials in the wild and looting chests to find more.  Much like

Weapon Stats Explained In-Depth

Published on: Sep 22, 2014 @ 13:14 Weapon stats define how a weapon behaves. All weapons of the same name have the same base stats. Note that because two weapons of the same name can have different mods, they can still end up with different final stat values! Also, there are a few weapon stats that are “hidden” (that is, not visible on the in-game stat display). Optics, Handling, Recoil, and maximum Inventory ammo stats aren’t shown on your weapon. Note that a higher maximum inventory ammo also boosts the amount of ammo you spawn with when you begin an activity.
