The Destiny 2 The community has a history of finding ways to game the system through a combination of glitches and cooperation, especially when it comes to community events, and it was no different with the last event the community was able to complete. Past events like Niobe Labs, Corridors of Time, and the Empyrean Foundation all highlight the benefits of the gaming community coming together for such events, even during quieter moments. The same has happened with the current event surrounding the Eliks district, which is now in much better shape than it has been since the Eliksni were given space in Season of the Splicer.
Destiny 2Its current season, Season of Plunder, saw the return of Eramis to the proverbial chessboard of the universe after being frozen for well over a year following the end of the Beyond Light campaign. The season-long narrative saw several major revelations, including the bloody story of Mithrax and Nezerak who was indeed a student of the Martyr, as the Guardians raced Eramis throughout the system to retrieve several artifacts. Eramis was eventually thwarted, but not before defending Mithrax’s daughter Eido from the Lucent Brood and seemingly opening the door to a possible redemption arc for the former Kell of Darkness.
As mentioned above, the last community event focused on rebuilding the Eliksni neighborhood was intended to close the season, but instead ended in about 25 hours. Content creator Skarrow9 highlighted the glitch in the community’s use of the event game, using the Captain’s Atlas and certain treasure maps to generate unwanted treasure coordinates. The bug, in turn, allowed players to donate infinite coordinates and run the community event as quickly as they did.
Bungie took to Twitter several hours after Skarrow posted his YouTube video to confirm that the event’s primary goal has been met and the Eliksni District has been rebuilt. The accompanying video shows some of the changes to the area, including a new garden and upgrades to several buildings. Bungie did not directly comment on the problem the community at large used to quickly complete the event, instead simply stating how the community was able to complete the event “in record time.”
The “record time” for the completion of the main goal of the event is only the last event i Destiny 2 community was able to spam and complete much faster than anticipated. It probably won’t be the last either, given how many times this has happened in-game up to this point, and it’s just a matter of when the next event will happen. Another event could happen as soon as Season 19, as the season will lead up to its launch Lightfall in early 2023, and a community event could help set the table for the Neptune reveal.
Destiny 2 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
