[/img]Well that was fun while it lasted. The infamous “Loot Cave” that allowed Destiny players to collectively shoot into the darkness and reap massive rewards has been fixed by Bungie. “The Hive of the holy ‘Treasure Cave’ have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack,” the developer wrote in its latest update notes.
Bungie also issued notes on some of Destiny’s other issues that it plans to address in the future, in which it said that “shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn’t our dream for how Destiny is played.” Aside from addressing the Loot Cave exploit, Bungie will “increase engram drops from completing activities” and allow players to opt-in to voice chat during online matchmaking sessions. The developer also plans to increase damage dealt by players and reduce the impact from bosses during Strike missions as well as issue a number of balance changes to impact the effectiveness of weapons at different ranges.
