You’re a PC gamer, however you have nonetheless in all probability heard of Destiny’s notorious ‘loot cave’, a weird case examine of human psychology of the type that videogames produce. It grew to become a reasonably large story, so naturally our intereste was piqued after we discovered a thread on Reddit claiming to have found model 2.zero in Destiny 2.zero. What we discovered is not actually akin to the unique loot cave, but it surely nonetheless produced an attention-grabbing cheese when you fancy a little bit of power-leveling.
See the place this matches in to the grind withn our Destiny 2 leveling guide.
Here’s the thread, by bbeane78, who claims to have discovered a technique to pressure a chest on Nessus to respawn. Chests are assured to drop planetary tokens, which you’ll be able to flip in to the overseers on every planet in alternate for repute. At every rep rank, you are assured a Legendary drop – it is a essential step within the mid-game gear grind, by which console gamers are firmly gripped in preparation for the Raid on Wednesday.
Bbeane78 recommends a run by an adjoining cave, killing all of the enemies as you go, and leaping by a teleporter to return and open the chest once more. We tried this, however could not be bothered killing all of the enemies, and located that the chest does not spawn persistently. We’re guessing that killing the enemies should take three minutes or extra, as a result of that is the timer that each one chests on the earth are set to. This run will work simply tremendous when you simply… keep within the room and wait. Seriously; we tried.
There are enemies within the cave, however in contrast to the chest, they will not respawn when you simply sit there, so that you solely should clear them out as soon as. The solely complication is that the chest spawns elsewhere throughout the cave, a few of which are not apparent. You can resolve this by shopping for a Nessus scouting report from Cayde-6, which can mark chests in your HUD (goal down sights to widen its detection radius).
To get there, select the touchdown zone close to Exodus Black and go ahead and proper. You’ll discover a slender canyon that can lead right into a cave with a blue teleporter portal, a Minotaur, and some goblins. This is the place. Clear the enemies out, discover the chest, and set a stopwatch working. Aim together with your weapon each three minutes, and a brand new chest icon ought to seem in your HUD. Go get it, and repeat.
Assuming each chest is on the identical three-minute timer, you may theoretically do that on any planet, if yow will discover a spot the place the spawns are equally predictable. The nice benefit of this room in Nessus is that the chest will all the time be close to sufficient so that you can seize simply, and enemies aren’t a nuisance – this may not all the time be true.
Is this probably the most environment friendly technique to stage? Possibly not; with the assistance of a scouting report, you may effectively be capable of get multiple chest for each three minutes by energetic play. That’s good, although – as a result of incentives are nonetheless sturdy so that you can play the sport as Bungie meant, there’s an opportunity they won’t patch out this explicit trick earlier than the PC launch. We hope it stays; when you fancy a relaxed night with YouTube or Netflix, it is a straightforward technique to assure some affordable progress in Destiny on the similar time.
