A common tactic employed by the more committed Destiny 2 Faction Rally enthusiasts, was to repeatedly enter and exit a Lost Sector, quickly opening chests and earning loot. While certainly monotonous, it got the job done, and was a great way of quickly racking up Faction rewards.
Unfortunately, for those hoping to use the same exploit for the latest Faction Rally, Bungie has now put a throttle on the number of Faction Tokens that can be earned through completing Lost Sectors.
Here’s the official details:
UPDATE: Lost Sector Rewards
We’re aware of player reports about Lost Sectors not granting rewards. There was a throttle added to address an issue in the previous Faction Rallies where players were earning 500 Tokens per hour.
The patchnote concerning this change has been updated to correctly state that all Lost Sector chests are subject to this throttle.
Right now if a player opens more than 2 Chests in a 10 minute period they will not receive additional rewards from Lost Sector chests for 10 minutes. This does not prevent players from completing milestones related to Lost Sector chests.
It looks like the Destiny community will have to find another way to efficiently grind for these tokens…
