Though the Menagerie is fun, that doesn’t mean it’s not broken. Luckily, Bungie is aware of the Destiny 2 Menagerie loot chest exploit issues and other bugs and are actively working on a fix.
For those that may not know, the Menagerie is a 6-person mode that came with the arrival of Season of Opulence. Once players have successfully run the Menageries, a drool-worthy chest drops and offers a reward to Guardians for all of their hard work. That being said, you can utilize a countdown that kicks off and reslot runes for a chance to open the chest as many times as you want. Not terribly uncommon, but not the way it’s supposed to work.
The latest glitch is awesome for those looking to cut down the grind, though repetitious and meaningless at the end of the day. Slot, open, slot, open – repeat as necessary. Despite the glitch being known almost immediately following Season of Opulence’s arrival, Bungie didn’t seem overly worried about it and made no mention of a fix. At least until now.
“When Season of Opulence began, we watched as players quickly discovered a bug in how the Menagerie’s final chest granted rewards. Players began to race out of the area and then back to the chest as fast as they could to get as many rewards as possible before sent back to orbit. It felt reminiscent of when players were farming treasure keys from chests on their Sparrows leading up to House of Wolves,” said Bungie in a recent blog post.
“Consider this an error in your favor. We haven’t rushed to fix it, but when we patch on July 9, this loophole will officially close, allowing only one opening of the chest per completion. Until then, we invite you take advantage of this all you like. Grow fat with strength.”
Though the fix may be disappointing to some, we’re sure there will be even more bugs to replace it in the future. It’s the Destiny way. Until then, the Destiny 2 Menagerie loot chest exploit is officially coming to a close.
