Eagle-eyed survivors have found a loot cave (like the infamous Destiny exploit) in Dying Light, the latest open world zombie survive ’em up from Dead Island developer Techland. Don’t worry about the spot being shut down by the developer, though, because this one is an easter egg in reference to Bungie’s hit shooter.
The cave is tucked away to the north and east of the slums. Hopping a fence and swimming through an underwater passage will bring you to a small cave filled with goodies. On finding it, the message “Your destiny is to build your legend (and get loot)” pops up to poke fun at the blockbuster shooter. Apparently there are multiple pathways in the area leading to numerous small caves, so be sure to explore thoroughly while you’re there. Kill enough zombies in the cave and the game slaps you on the wrist and says “Enough! Patch 1.0.2 has been released! Do more quests!”
Destiny‘s so-called Loot Cave was an area found early in the game’s life where players could camp out with their gun trained on a cave opening that would infinitely spawn enemies. Engrams accumulate as the players shoot down the endless stream of fodder, serving as a reasonably efficient and easy way to grind out loot. Bungie patched the cave out after it became popular, kicking off the endless game of tug-of-war between the min-maxing players looking for the paths of least resistance within the game and the developers trying to maintain balance and discourage degenerate strategies.
