Bungie Removes Reward Cap From Old Destiny 2 Raids

Bungie has lifted reward caps for Destiny 2’s past raids. Which means that you can start farming weapons from them as many times as you like. The following raids will be ripe for looting and dedicated farming:

  • Leviathan
  • Eater of Worlds
  • Spire of Stars
  • Crown of Sorrow
  • Scourge of the Past

The lift has started, meaning that you can farm for awesome Exotics like Anarchy from Scourge of the Past and armour drops too share the no-cap bonus. Keep in mind that secret chests will still be limited to just a week.

The catch? Well, since the Destiny 2 expansion Beyond Light is coming out on 22nd September, this means that older locales and raids will be removed. If you don’t get them before the date, you’ll have to wait for them to be rotated back in.

Bungie also released patch notes for this week’s update. Check them out below:
