Need new shiny Destiny loot? There’s a cave for that

So far, Destiny’s loot has been an odd shaped ball to me. Like trying to play football with a rugby ball. You expect what’s going to happen when it bounces, but then it just does the opposite. Just like getting a Purple engram and then get handed a Green reward. If only there was a way to farm for those precious engrams endlessly.

Just like every other MMO ever created, there is one way to farm for loot in Destiny using a very simple exploit. All you really need is a friend and a fairly accurate gun to do the job. On Earth there’s a cave that endlessly spawns Hive Acolytes and Thralls, which allows you to kick back, take a few shots and reap all the rewards you could possibly hope for.

And it works too. Many players have reportedly used this cave to collect a ton of gear, which can be decrypted to increase your Cryptach’s level or gain access to some kick ass loot. It certainly beats running through the same Strike missions over and over again, only to end with one green engram while your teammates pick up a few dozen of them. That’s exactly what happened to me this weekend, although I was laughing at it more than anything to be honest.

You can check out where to find the cave in the handy video below, including some tips on how to keep the waves coming. I need to personally try this, but it seems like a solid tactic to try out daily. At least until Bungie wake up and fix it.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • “Like trying to play football with a rugby”… A rugby what? Jean pant?

    • Admiral Chief 0

      That is the million rand question. But the jeanpant is mos naaais

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No wonder he’s not getting it right, you’re supposed to hit it with a tennis.

      • Ahhh. That explains a lot…

      • Alessandro Barbosa

        Or putt it with a golf? 😛

  • nick

    i got some cool stuff a few days ago, but last night it seemed completely nerf’d. they seem to have replaced the public events that used to happen there with the spontaneous battles between hive and fallen. looks like it’s been patched already

    • Hammersteyn

      Have you gotten a golden bounty yet?

    • Guild

      Nah it’s still working and easy farming. The war breaks out every couple of hours and same with the event crashing in. Otherwise I’m still farming there.

      • Hammersteyn

        Sweet, only now as is life in general, someone will probably troll the farm point to stop the aliens from spawning, spoiling it for everyone else

        • Guild

          Got too be honest I have had some fun doing that. Like throwing up a shield at cave entrance

      • nick

        it does still work but it’s not handing out the loot like it was

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “At least until Bungie wake up and fix it.” Is that a cave-at?

  • This loot farm requires massive amounts of patience… Ive been farming here for hours and never had the turnaround these guys in the video get. Also, no legendary engrams so far, only green and blue

    • nick

      yeah it’s not like it was. i think it has been patched to a degree

    • Guild

      I farmed saturday morning for 40 min. Picked up 47 green, 29 blue and only 4 purple

      • Hammersteyn

        Did it leave you feeling blue or green with envy at others success 😛

        • Guild

          lol I pretty much dismantled everything. The purple’s only gave me rare items. I need resources more than anything now like ascendant shards and energy.

          • Hammersteyn

            Wait? You get ascendant shards from dismantling engrams?

          • Guild

            Dismantling legendary items that you don’t need

          • Decembermaloy

            runs off and cries again…

      • Decembermaloy

        I have a problem with the only “4 purple” part, lucky sod… runs off and cries…

  • Hammersteyn

    So I guess this is were everyone else will be tonight.

    • Nikola

      well I am definitely going to try it out tonight:) So see u there lol

    • Guild

      I was hoping not too many people would know. I had a team of 8 on saturday morning shooting the crap out of the cave

      • Hammersteyn

        So that’s why the fireteam invites dried up 😛

        • Guild

          lol just join on the party chat. it’s always available. Then you’ll hear what everyone is up to and can make plans. I need to finish some PVP tonight for a few extra marks to buy my 3rd legendary armor piece

          • Hammersteyn

            Will do 😀

  • Nikola

    I personally don’t think it’s that necessary to do it, if you cap your 100 vanguard points each week and collect strange coins you will easily acquire legendary gear for your character and some exotic gear….Rather spent time doing strikes with friends or farming materials cause if you did not know all legendary gear requires quite a bit of spirit blooms, hellium fragments and so on to upgrade it:)

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s sad that people feel they have to revert to this, but that’s because the strike missions and PVP isn’t always rewarding. It feels like they use a random number generator to calculate what loot to give. Me and Sagevile opened up the same chest on Mars and I got 9 relics while he got almost none for instance.

      People are getting frustrated slaving away and not getting the loot the feel they deserve

      • GooseZA

        Nah, farming like this is just as random. At least with the strike playlist / crucible your marks are guaranteed to get you gear. Plus you get to talk crap with friends.

        • Nikola

          exactly play with people more fun than doing this rubbish lol:)

    • Hammersteyn

      I also got 100 vanguard points but that was because I had to do 25 strike missions for an exotic item.

      • Nikola

        I got 100 points quite easy actually as I enjoy doing strikes so just kept on doing it to get gear and did quite a few by the time I looked it I almost capped it also you get them from public events and daily heroic mission so it is not really hard I rather do that then sit in a cave and shoot on my own the game is way more fun with other people. But I understand what you mean loot is very random however I also think it is good makes you work harder to get and not everyone has rare gear. But I do think that bosses and such should have a loot table like what items they drop so you can farm those specific bosses it will make it more fair since atm it is very random.

  • fred

    Can we rather do some pvp , this sounds a bit boring.

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    lol. Exploit fix in 3….2….

  • Sk3tz0

    Hahaha I was at this exact cave this afternoon.. saw 3 guys shooting at it joined in.. and got bored.. if i new it was for loot i’d of stayed..

  • Jonathan Scott

    On Mars go to the place where the generators spawn tons of the robot guys just do not kill the generators does the same thing and it private. Been farming there for uber loot.

    • Jonathan Scott

      the mission i forget which one will login shortly
