Whatever your taste, Brie, Gouda, Atheon, or Crota, Destiny continues to supply the freshest of cheeses. On the same day that the patch was released to address exploits in Crota’s End, new cheeses were posted.
In perhaps the most hilarious of cheeses, the lamp phase is no longer cheese-able by using a lamp explosion to catapult yourself. Now all you have to do is jump. No, no, no, you read that right. The new cheese takes the same path as the old but rather than having the lamp explosion catapult you across the map, players must simply use their most agile jump to continue on to the later part of the phase. You can see in the video above that the exploit plays out almost exactly the same as it did previously, sans the lamp explosion.
Even the patch for the bridge phase has be re-cheesed. Watch and listen to the video to learn how. It doesn’t differ much from the original cheese except that the bridge has to be formed and crossed by at least one player. From that point on, proceed as before by killing the wizard and ogres.
The only cheese that has yet to see a refresh is the exploit to make Crota permanently kneel. Having one player disconnect will no longer keep Crota frozen in his kneeling stance. However, if Destiny players have shown us anything it is that they are quite clever and creative. It would probably be safe to assume that many are working to find a new cheese method for Crota.
Honestly, it is getting to a point that Bungie is embarrassing themselves with these patch attempts. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have to earn your rewards. What I’m saying is that Bungie needs to do a better job to earn our respect. This game was years in the making and there has to be some very smart people working on it, but the things that need fixed the most, like the rewards and upgrade systems, are not being addressed properly; if at all. Bungie would rather make sure players have to grind for hours to upgrade the few rewards they do get instead of making the game more enjoyable and worthwhile. It befuddles me as to how they can keep going on like this. Props to those still finding delicious cheese.
