A Good Spot To Farm For Weapons In Destiny

Wow. That's a LOT of loot waiting to get picked up.

Update 9/16: This spot is all well and good, but there's another place, on the moon, that lets you rack up engrams much faster.

YouTube user Completionist found the perfect spot on Venus to sit patiently as mobs of enemies roll in, ripe for the killing (he says Mars at first in the video, but that was an IRL typo). It looks like it's granted him a decent amount of high-level legendary and rare weapons in the process, not to mention all the glimmer you can turn the rest into.

Fast forward to four minutes and thirty four seconds in if you need instructions on where to find this location.


Note that you likely won't be seeing the same field filled with green and blue orbs as Completionist has here until you've spent a copious amount of time farming out in that spot.

So! I went and farmed here for a bit over an hour, and figured I'd share what I found:

I killed a shitload of dudes, and with super consistent spawns like the guy says in the video. Even after more than an hour, the loot the ground looked NOTHING like the amount he's got in this video, which makes me think he'd been at it for 2-3 hours or something before he started recording.

In the end, I got: 6 blue engrams and 37 green engrams, and the 6 blue ones turned up enough good light armor to get me up from level 21 to level 22, which then got me a couple bonus blue engrams from the postmaster.

I found that the Goblins over on the left-hand side of the room (facing where he's usually facing during the video) were the only ones that ever dropped blue engrams; the fallen who come in from the right only ever dropped green ones. Could just have been my game, though.

Other things that happened:

Two times, I suddenly got mobbed by a waaaaay higher-level group of enemies. Around 45 minutes in, the game got really weird and my grenades and Warlock special attack started vanishing (!!) into thin air, like, I'd do the grenade animation but no grenade would appear. Very odd. A couple times, enemies would stop spawning entirely for a few minutes.

All in all, an interesting experiment. I'm not sure I wouldn't have gotten just as many blue engrams from doing a couple high-level strike missions (which would have been more fun, as well), but if you're just killing time or using remote-play while watching TV or something, it's not a bad way to farm gear.

Thus concludes my field report from FarmTown, Venus.
