Destiny's Loot Cave nerfed with a hotfix

Bungie has released a hotfix that has reduced the effectiveness of farming Destiny's "loot cave", a cave in Skywatch, Old Russia, that spawned packs of Hive every six seconds.

"The Hive of the holy 'Treasure Cave' have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack," said Bungie.

Now, packs of Hive will spawn every 40 seconds, instead of every six.

Metal Gear Solid V buddy system detailed

Metal Gear Solid V buddy system detailed

A buddy system in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain allows Snake to solicit help from sniper Quiet or a pooch called Diamond Dog.

As reported by VG24/7, the buddy system is entirely optional as each must be tracked down and befriended, and the spare seats in Snake’s chopper imply that up to four will feature in the game.

Each buddy offers side missions, but all – along with Snake’s horse – can be killed by the enemy.

Quiet can scout ahead, tag enemies, and provide covering fire. She hums to indicate she is in a good sniping position, and players can then select targets for her to shoot.

As with all the game’s buddies, she becomes more effective as her bond with Snake strengthens.
