Destiny 2‘s new Forsaken raid may not be launching until this Friday, but some clever Guardians have found a way to access the activity’s loot early. Before players get too excited, though, the exploit has been fixed.
According to a recent post on the Destiny subreddit, user ozberk and a group of Destiny 2 players discovered a way to glitch into the latest expansion’s upcoming raid area. More importantly, one raid chest was uncovered that awarded raid-exclusive gear. The fireteam even posted a guide on how to reach the spot in question, which you can check out below.
Unfortunately, Bungie has since fixed the bug that allowed gear to drop from the chests. In a recent post on its forums, the developer confirmed the raid chest has been “suppressed,” meaning loot will no longer drop from it. However, players that have already earned weapons or armor from the chest will get to keep anything they’ve found.
Interestingly, the gear players earned included a few hints about the raid. For example, the Nation of Beasts hand cannon and Chattering Bone pulse rifle seem to include bone fragments that could be tied to the ahamkara. The dragon race was recently theorized to be involved in the Last Wish raid, so these weapons could be a hint that the dragons will indeed make an appearance.
While most Guardians will just have to wait to earn the new gear when the raid goes live, they can still watch and appreciate ozberk’s discovery. The 16-minute long video shows how much trial and error went into discovering the glitch. Plus, it gives players a sneak peek of the Last Wish area where the upcoming activity will take place when it launches this Friday, September 14th.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
