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.

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

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

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

            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.

    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.

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

          • Ottokie

            February 11, 2016 at 09:39

            Warframe can not be kicked, only delayed

          • VampyreSquirrel

            February 11, 2016 at 09:40

            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

            February 11, 2016 at 09:45

            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

          • Ottokie

            February 11, 2016 at 09:49

            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

            February 11, 2016 at 10:32

            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

            February 11, 2016 at 10:37

            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 😛

            February 11, 2016 at 10:38

            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

      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.
