Bungie Reveals Why They Patched The Loot Cave

The Loot Cave is well known for Destiny players. It was a cave in a certain area on the open area on earth where there was a unlimited amount of enemies spawning. Players stood at a certain point shooting into the cave hoping to get loot by standing there for a while killing regular enemies.

The first weeks Destiny came out, the now infamous Loot Cave was a big thing within the Destiny community. Destiny developer Bungie have now come out and addressed the issues they had with the Loot Cave:


_ “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.”_

“They were very weak enemies that didn’t drop very good loot. The funny thing is that we knew about [the loot cave] before launch, we knew that this was potentially exploitable activity, but we didn’t care. The actual drop rate per minute spent is not any different than anything else.”

“So you actually will get less loot [shooting into the loot cave] per hour than you would just playing the game,” he added. “But the players weren’t doing the math that way.”

“The time of the loot cave was the highest peak of players reporting each other for cheating,” Hopson said. “[The Loot Cave] was actually pretty controversial.”
