As a new service separate from its console counterparts, the PC version of Destiny 2 was updated to include the 'Faction Rally' end-game feature just a few days ago. Another activity that relies on farming monsters for loot tokens, players have already found an exploit that drastically reduces the time needed to earn reputation for your chosen team.
A simple enough trick that won't break and agreements, players can make the same chest lootable over and over with a little walking; giving anyone the ability to speed things along if they feel the need to.
Recorded by YouTube user 'xHOUNDISHx' for the world to see down below, we'll explain the situation in words first. As promised, it's a real easy blunder that Bungie could likely patch out in an instant, but with it being up for a few days now and even surviving routine maintenance, there's still time to try it. Completing Faction Rally activities opens up some of the best gear in the game, so you can imagine why speeding the process along is of interest.
It all takes place in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ combat zone. Find the Lost Sector around there and proceed to kill everything as you normally would. Sticking to the norm, you'll come across a chest at the end that now includes 3 Faction-specific tokens (they used to be handed out and farmed through 'Enemy Resources').
Things aren't about to get much more fun, but they will speed up the overall process. Leave the zone through the usual shortcut exit around the chest, but simply turn and head back into the room once the 'Winding Cove' text appears in the bottom corner of your screen. As if by magic, the loot box will be active again, meaning you can repeat this as many times as you like for a bunch of free reputation tokens.
As we mentioned above, Faction Rally farming methods have been present before but worked in a slightly different way. Bungie likely tuned the system to stop the exploit but accidentally introduced a new one. As tempting as it may be to try this, Destiny 2 doesn't have a whole lot of end-game content going for it just yet, so charging through more isn't going to help in the long run.
Still, people have the idea that this wouldn't be a temptation if end-game content wasn't just a rinse-and-repeat grindfest. What are your thoughts?
