Guardians looking to shoot into a “black hole for hours on end” won’t get a chance to do so anymore.
Bungie patched the Cosmodrome “Treasure Cave” on Thursday, September 25.
Check out the patch notes below:
“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.
Respawn timers for monster caves in Skywatch have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 6)
Respawn timers for monster caves in Forgotten Shore have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
Respawn timers for monster caves in Ember Caves have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
Respawn timers for monster caves in the Shattered Coast have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
Respawn timers for monster caves in the Barrens have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 20)”
Check out the original story below, and the Gold Chest locations below that.
Looking for a new, reliable farming location?
Players have recently discovered a cave near the Cosmodrome in Old Russia that spawns endless amounts of valuable loot dropping low-level enemies such as thralls and acolytes.
According to Force Strategy Gaming, at least two players need to stand behind a rock slab a distance away from the cave, and mow down all enemies as they spawn and dash out.
If players stand before the rock slab, or if the enemies near the area are not completely eliminated, no more enemies will spawn in the cave, and the trick won’t work.
The thralls and acolytes will drop uncommon gear, as well as blue and purple engrams.
There is even a Reddit thread on good Cosmodrome loot cave “etiquette,” which is helpful for those who haven’t yet stumbled upon the location.
“Make sure that place is lit up like a Vegas chapel before you want to venture in,” the Reddit group advises.
Check out all the gold chest locations below.
Chest 1: On starting the Restoration mission, turn right and make your way into the building directly in front of you. Chest 1 is sitting on top of a desk.
Chest 2: From the Chest 1 location, head west along a near by river, and Chest 2 can be spotted near the coast.
Chest 3: This chest is located in a cave near the Forgotten Shore to the Mothyards.
Chest 4: Either during or after battling with the Wizard inside the Lunar Complex during The Dark Within, head over to the crates on the left side of the room for Chest 4.
Chest 5: This one is a bit tricky. It is located below the raised platforms of the Sepiks Prime battle, but players have to keep at eye out for the boss if they want to stay alive.
Chest 1: The first chest on the Moon can be found by after trekking to the Hive temple and across the bridge that stretches towards a nearby ship. Look for a ramp heading down, and it should be there on your right.
Chest 2: Look for a good sized rock cropping on the left side of the road between Archer’s Line and the Hellmouth, and Chest 2 should be on the other side.
Chest 3: Go to the top of the hill directly in front of the Archer’s Line spawn point from the location of Chest 2, head towards the nearby dome, and face the Hive Fortress when you spot it. Chest 3 should be in a cave that you will notice.
Chest 4: This chest can be found during or after the World’s Grave event from the Destiny campaign. While on the platform where Ghost scans the Grave, look towards the room’s entrance, and glance somewhere down and to the right near the water in the floor of the room for Chest 4.
Chest 5: Another boss battle, another chest. When battling Phogoth in the Hive’s Summoning Pits, head to the lowest platform in the room, and the gold chest is found between two stair cases.
Chest 1: Go to the Scablands from the Barrens and you should find a Cabal outpost full of heavily-armored enemies. Check the tops of crates piled in the area for Chest 1.
Chest 2: From the Barrens, head towards the Hollows. There should be an explorable opening in the ground near the downtown area, and the gold chest can be found there.
Chest 3: This chest is located in Dust Palace and behind a desk inside of a room with a number 3 on the door.
Chest 4: The fourth gold chest is located inside the Legion’s Keep at the Iron Line. Upon reaching the entrance to the keep, take the walkway on your left and jump over the pipes in the corner of the room. Look up and to your left for a walkway which you should take to reach Chest 4.
Chest 5: Chest 5 is located in Tharsis Junction. Look for a Vex gate behind a train, and go through a small room located nearby. Head down the path for the last chest.
Chest 1: The first chest on Venus is located between Ishtar Academy and the Shattered Coast. While on the road, keep your eyes pealed for a U-shaped tunnel that heads underground. Chest 1 on Venus is found on the right side of the tunnel at the base of one of the pillars.
Chest 2: This gold chest can be found on Campus 9, near the back of the first building encountered by players. Head for the big orange building, follow the catwalk that stretches on the outside of the building and you will find the chest at the end of the catwalk.
Chest 3: The third chest on Venus can be found in Winter’s Lair, sitting on a balcony that overlooks the map’s central cavern. You need a bit of jumping skills to go onto the balcony on the path to The Cinders. With a bit of skill, leap from the balcony to the landing where the chest is located.
Chest 4: After climbing onto the Ketch (the docked ship from the Scourge of Winter mission), go right to the back of the ship, and spot the gold chest sitting on the ship’s exterior.
Chest 5: Go to Ishtar Commons over the N/Gen Branch, and head into the first enclosed office building. Look through the cubicles found inside, and you should soon spot the last Venus chest.
