Destiny 2 was the center of attention during the weekend for gaming fans, as the new Deep Stone Crypt raid brought a plethora of content into the game, with players still anticipating even more to drop before the end of the year.
New exotic quest, weapons and story missions on top of the six-man activity capped off an amazing couple of days for Bungie, which decided to follow up with a Hotfix that slightly alters the gear pool and kills what was essentially a loot cave, albeit less impressive as the original one back in 2014.
Bungie removes new Cosmodrome loot cave
Some players and content creators brought to light a little exploit set in the Divide section of the Cosmodrome, one of the areas that made its return from Destiny 1 with Beyond Light.
The little cave-like environment allowed players to farm bosses in hopes of getting Prime Engrams. Here's a quick video for reference:
It's definitely no Vanilla Destiny loot cave, which also happened to be in the Cosmodrome, but in any case, it has now been completely removed, as Bungie removed enemies spawning as much from certain activities, essentially killing this farming method.

Bungie wants to make sure players' random world drops are rewards that'll last for a few months, as they have now removed weapons that will hit the Infusion Cap at the end of the current season, Season of the Hunt, adding a few more to compensate.
The fresh drops include the return of the Seraph collection of guns from Season of the Worthy and Season of Arrivals Seasonal and planetary reprisal weapons.
