An inquiring fan on Twitter asks Ubisoft about the Destiny-like loot cave found in The Division, and the company hints that it will be removed from the game.
When enthusiastic shooter-RPG fans discovered a Destiny-style loot cave in Tom Clancy’s The Division, they probably knew that it would be shut down in future updates for the game. Well, those fears have now been substantiated, as Ubisoft has hinted that the loot cave players discovered in The Division is likely not long for this world.
A gamer playing The Division directly asked Ubisoft on Twitter to fix the game’s loot cave exploit. The company responded by saying that the Division team is already working on a fix. What this means is that any one of the upcoming updates for The Division could be the one that outright removes the loot cave from the game.
While some gamers would rather have loot cave-style exploits removed from games, others likely enjoy taking advantage of the farming capabilities of these areas. After all, The Division‘s loot cave is a premiere spot to collect the valuable Phoenix Credits, and was especially useful after Ubisoft nerfed Phoenix Credit drop rates elsewhere in the game.
Players were also able to utilize The Division‘s version of the loot cave to farm for gear at a much more efficient rate. When Ubisoft removes the loot cave from the game, it looks like players will have to resort to playing the game as was intended, and grind for their gear like everyone else that doesn’t take advantage of the loot cave has to do.

In the meantime, anyone that does wish to utilize The Division‘s loot cave should do so as soon as possible. Ubisoft is likely to remove it from the game any day now, which will make obtaining gear and Phoenix Credits more difficult. Having said that, there are other ways to efficiently grind in The Division, such as following this Dark Zone farming path, for example.
It will be interesting to see how The Division‘s community reacts to the removal of the loot cave. It’s clear that some players want the loot cave removed, whereas others would rather it stay in the game. At the end of the day, Ubisoft should do whatever it feels is best for The Division and its players.
Have you used The Division‘s loot cave? Do you plan on grinding in it before Ubisoft removes it permanently from the game?
