Bungie Fixes Destiny’s Three Coins Exotic Engram Exploit

on September 25, 2015 8:05 AM

Bungie didn’t want players to take advantage of exploits in Destiny’s expansion The Taken King so quickly, so they deployed the 2.0.0.4 hot fix.

It addresses some of the issues that people reported about within the first week of launch, and it fixed The Three Coins exploit. It is basically a new item sold by Xur, which increases the chance of an Exotic Engram drop when you defeat a boss. One of Destiny’s easiest bosses is in the Scourge of Winter mission, and luckily for players there is a spawn point just before meeting him. So all you had to do was kill him and yourself, then go back, collect the Exotic Engrams, kill him and yourself again then the cycle went on and on.

Here are all the fixes included in this patch:

General
  • Fixed an issue with Year 1 Moments of Triumphs in which Golden Chest node completions were disappearing after TTK release
Activities
Quests
  • Fixed an issue where players who reached Level 40 before turning in the Reach Level 30 objective did not properly receive the Level 40 quest
  • Fixed an issue where the quest “High Value Targets” did not correctly reward Legendary Marks upon completion
Strikes
  • Fixed an issue where Year 1 Strikes were not dropping Uncommon and Rare quality gear as intended
World
  • Some treasure chests in the Dreadnaught are now in a location that only allow them to be looted once per spawn
Xur
  • Three of Coins now provides a smaller increase in Exotic Engram drop chance when rapidly killing Ultras
Inventory
  • Dismantling leveled-up Exotics now have a reduced chance to produce 2 Exotic Shards

My main and favorite thing to do in my life is play video games on my PS4 and admire the work that has been done in each game whether it's an AAA or an indie. Games are games no matter how many people develop it, it's the passion and hard work behind it. I am a crazy fan of Game of Thrones and love to read National Geographic magazines.
