Destiny 2 Sea of plunder update brought with it a number of new things. Kings Fall, ARC 3.0, and a bunch of New Exotics. This new season did something really unexpected, it made pirates out of guardians.

It allowed players to take on fallen pirate ships and, in turn, unlock pirate-themed rewards too.  Alongside this, players got access to a New Battle-pass and also a brand new hub area. And now this season is about to come to an end.

Destiny 2 event was started to celebrate the final two weeks of Seasons of plunder!

Recently Bungie decided to treat Destiny 2 fans with a community challenge for these final two weeks. This community event was scheduled to last for two weeks. And then open the gates for Season 19 of Destiny two on December 6. But the players had something else in mind.

This was basically a charity event, where players were supposed to collect captain coins and a bunch of other resources and put them in a donation box. This curious donation box was placed in the middle of the tower courtyard. Donating resources and coins would result in improvements to the Eliksni Quarter, it would grow and improve with the completion of each donation threshold.

But somehow players found a way to donate other currencies they receive during Season of plunder such as the very common treasure coordinates players receive by completing playlists. This also paved way for an exploit that allows players to farm unlimited treasure coordinates if they already have some in their inventory.

With almost all Destiny 2 players using this exploit to donate stuff to the mysterious box, everyone had already upgraded those Eliksni quarters to completion and most Destiny 2 players are pretty much done with this season.

The event would have been a tall order without the Exploit

Destiny 2 players suggest that if they did this event without the exploit, this challenge would have taken players to just work on it for almost a week to achieve an individual final goal. So, some say it is just a good thing that this exploit existed and made this task a little easier for the players. All in all, it was a good end of the season for most players. Not so much for Bungie, it seems.

These kinds of exploits are not uncommon, but what is uncommon is for people to make short work of such a huge event. We can only imagine what the developers of Destiny are thinking right now.
