Destiny players are killing themselves in the Crimson Doubles exploit

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. For never was a story of more woe than this of a Guardian and her Ghost! This week, everybody is celebrating the month of loooooove in Destiny, thanks to a new event that pairs Guardians up for a little bit of Crucible action and vengeance.

Crimson Days is here, and while the rewards are mostly cosmetic fluff, there is one item in particular that lovestruck Guardians are after: A Ghost shell that boats 320 Light. Star-crossed lovers need to pray to the random number generator cupids that they’ll be fortunate enough to receive the Valentine’s Day themed gift once a round ends, or all that death and destruction will be for nothing.

But in typical Destiny fashion, there’s already an exploit that can be used to guarantee Guardians getting their hands on that crimson Ghost shell. It’s pretty simple really, and something that Geoff tells me to do quite often: Just kill yourself. Yes, by simply flinging yourself off of a nearby ledge in true Shakespearian/Nicholas Sparks style, you can quickly end a round of Crimson Days and find yourself being rewarded.

Is it worth it? You bet your Titan ass it is, as getting Oryx to drop a 320 Light level Ghost shell is harder than keeping the EFF quiet in parliament. It’s also the most wonderfully apt description of Destiny in its current state, as Guardians are literally hurling themselves to their doom just so that they can get their hands on some decent content.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    ^this made my day xD

    Ne’er a brighter light have shone, than on the day the Guardians were gone. ‘Twas Destiny that brought doom upon the world.

  • Hammersteyn

    They chose to jump of lovers leap?

    • Pariah

      I get this feeling we’ll need one of these to understand that:

      • Hammersteyn

        That’s clever, I might even use this someday

        • Pariah

          Will there be a prize? 😀

          • Hammersteyn

            Sure but I’ll try and make mine more dynamic. Using seconds since midnight to shuffle about.

          • miaau

            Use SSE with epoch of 1983/03/05, random date, and randomise seconds from SSE to today, with letters placed randomly in there, but place 500 more letters than needed, with the key (heh, key) being to know which seconds have the right letter. Of course, no way you could decipher it properly afterwards, without storing the random results and knowing which were fake.

            I need more than strong tea this morning. That was just drivel.

          • Hammersteyn

            A lot more complex than I envisioned

          • Pariah

            Darryn will probably understand. 😉

  • Also, to the pair of readers that Gavin and I were matched against: Apologies if you were wondering why the two of us kept suiciding off the deserts of Mars and the Cosmodrome cliffs.

    • Hammersteyn

      Did you at least buy emotes and used them to indicate what you were trying to achieve?

      • Pariah

        used?

        Dude, go grab some coffee. 😛

        • VampyreSquirrel

          Seems like it needs to be a strong cup.

          • Hammersteyn

            It’s Destiny’s fault. I feel use

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I just played some Worms Crazy Golf last night, but tonight I DINE IN HELL!!! Actually it’s Sanctuary, but anyway.

          • Time for some Torment X pew pew 😛

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I’m getting there man, can’t solo it just yet, but I’m close.

            Trying to get some specific gear too.

          • I just need my braces, belt and The Furnace mace, then I will start to chance the leader board 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Saryn P is coming. Am I excited? I’m not sure. :/

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Fortunately or unfortunately I’ve kicked my Warframe addiction…. but it’s replaced by a Diablo 3 addiction now.

          • Warframe can not be kicked, only delayed

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I haven’t run Warframe in over a month.

          • All of us are taking a break from it now, too many new games coming to fast 😛

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Diablo 3 isn’t new… and you haven’t played THAT much (it’s only 7.1 hrs as per Steam) Farming Simulator 2015 yet

          • Rust and soon The Division will take up all my time. Farming Simulator is…amazing!

          • Diablo 3 ain’t new, but season 5 is fresh as spring cut flowers on a Sunday morning with a hint of lemon

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Yeah my enthusiasm has started to wane as well. I’ll play new stuff, but I’m just not interested in the daily grind anymore.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I’ve got too many other games to play to be able to sit and grind Warframe for 4+ hours a night… I can finish other games with that time… not like I am at the moment 😛

          • I want to start with Life is Strange but also want to play Rayman and Super meat boy. So I compromise and play Farming Sim xD

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            After 1k hours I think I’ve got my money’s worth out of a F2P game hehe.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Hahaha! Yeah, it would seem that way.

          • Either way, we are farming it 😛

        • Hammersteyn

          They won’t allow me to Irish my coffee

          • Pariah

            Racists!!!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            In that case you should resort to moerkoffee.

        • miaau

          so, if a misplaced d leads to call for coffee

          I wnder wat meny wirds misspelt woold dreve u 2? Oh, and what do I say now? Kappa Lima Bravo

          • Pariah

            A whte padde rom?

  • Pieter Kruger

    Yep…….

    • VampyreSquirrel

      Lemming sheep!!!!!

    • Hammersteyn

      You know what would be hilarious. If they players held a day of protest because of lack of content and they all killed themselves over and over for 24 hours and it gets uploaded to Youtube.

  • Every time I read about this game I am happy I didn’t spend 300 hours playing it 😛

    • miaau

      an oddly specific number. Sarcasm or trying to put the Hammer on Steyn?

      • Hammersteyn

        He’s trolling everyone

        • Eh? Not at all. I said I would join you chaps in Oct last year if you showed that you would hang about after the Taken King, none of you did 😛

          • Hammersteyn

            You only bought PS+ this year?

          • Yeah, for Helldivers

          • Hammersteyn

            Right, so how were you gonna play Destiny without it. Or were you looking forward to Destiny and were bummed to hear we stopped?

        • miaau

          so, an equal oppurtunity troller then?

          • Hammersteyn

            He explained himself a bit more. All is cool

      • Just a hazard at how many hours some spent 🙂

  • Spy Master Tokashi

    what is Destiny again?
