For those of you who don’t know, or who aren’t that into Destiny, there was a loot cave glitch on the Planet Earth in Destiny which allowed you to get many items in little time. Well that cave is gone now thanks to Bungie’s next update.
The glitch required you to stand far away from a cave with 2 or more buddies and fire continuously. Enemies would keep spawning in the cave, and once everyone was out of ammo you could go get all of the loot that was dropped. Well Bungie quickly stopped this exploit, which was the right decision.
The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave. The speed at which the community organized around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us.
They then went on to say:
But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn’t our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities.
Thank you Bungie, for keeping the chance of good equipment in the talented players’ hands.
