Best Glimmer farm technique?

So yea ive found this out the other day and pretty much got it all down. to find this location, when you start off on the free explore, just go left and keep going through all teh tunnels and such and youll eventually make it to Skywatch. enjoy the grind my friends.

  • So would you guys think this is the best way to not only get glimmer but kills, exp, engrams, weapons, and armor? seems to me that this spot does do everything youd ever need.

  • I use here too, it's literally one of the best places since they also sometimes appear between the cliff and the helicopter and if you can trick that ?? Lvl knight to fall off you can get the chest in there too

      • Aren't they on random spawn though, or does it reappear only when you reenter the match?

        Found a better way. Its in the starter area for the Cosmodrome. Basically, there are always two chests at the same time. There are the lock boxes outside and in buildings, they are small, and silver. And there are loot chests, more cylindrical, silver black and gold, which spawn in caves. All the location my friends and I have found they spawn will be listed. My friends and I also have simple callouts for the locations when we are searching together. Outside/Building Lock Boxes: 1.On top of the small building. If you walk straight along the edge of the map when you spawn, you will find it. It is the building that has the cave with level twenty knights below it. Callout: Knight Building 2.Large Building: The box spawns in two places here, either on top, or, if you are facing the open side of the building, on the left side just around the corner, if you look up, you will see it in the walls where the paneling is falling. Callout: Big Building 3.Small Building: This building is right next to the large one, it spawns the box inside on top of what I recall might be a locker, or on top of the building itself. Callout: Small Building 4.Wall: If you look to the right side of the map when you spawn, there is a wall that follows the right side. There are large pillars that protrude from the wall, thes have smaller pillars next to them. The box spawns on top of one of the small pillars closer to the left-most side of the wall. Callout: Wall 5.Stairs: to the right of the map, there is a building that goes to another area. To get inside you have to climb some old stairs. The box spawns under the stairs. Callout: Stairs Chests/Caves: 1. There is a cave to the right if you go just a few meters on the left-most path from spawn. Callout: 1st Cave 2. If you continue to follow that path, there is a cave in front of you where there is a small hill blocking your way. Callout: 2nd Cave 3. If you are looking at the large buildings open side, follow the left side of the building, and to your left will be a small hill. Behind it is a cave where the chest will spawn. Callout: New Cave (this is because we didn't knw the cave at first, so you can call it 3rd Cave). These are all the locations in the first area, this is easy and quick to do because the enemies are low level, and you are going to be moving enough so you won't have to worry. You will need double jump/glide/lift to get on the large building. There will always be a lock box and chest spawned at the same time. Comment if you have any questions. Gt: Straight Psyche (360)

            Hahah thanks for this dude I'm going to try that area ASAP. Those Fallen spawning in that cave and increasing in power and then the Servitors appearing is insane! Even though it's low level I found a similar technique where you first spawn from leaving the Tower. The few caves and buildings on the right spawn chests of different kinds quite often.

          • Alright, I really didn't want to share this, because I've found that more and more people are horning in on my area, but here it is. When you spawn in free roam, go to the right and up the stairs. Follow the tunnel to the end and you should come out in a large clearing. Go to the right and get on top of the highest building. There are/were three loot chests there. In addition to the chests, the area is also the spawn of three different Elite Fallen enemies, each giving a median of about 25 Glimmer each. They also drop Ether Seeds. I recommend bringing a Scout Rifle and just perching on the building. It's what I do. Just keep flipping around and sniping enemies across the clearing. Using Ether Seeds, you can easily make 1000 Glimmer in half an hour.

            • I just go to the area I call the War Zone. It's pretty big & has both Fallen & Hive fighting each-other. It's just a little before you get to the place with the big array.

              • In this area I think you do better farming for glimmer as you get 4 to 5 chest each trip around. You can get like 6000 to 8000 an hour.

              • I find using Ether Seeds to be far more productive. Sepiks Prime drops them at a decent rate (though they're hard to find) and pop one in during an invasion on Skywatch or during the level 8 Strike. Made about 3 k in one run.

                • Also, slightly less reliably, you can do assassination quests, which give spin metal as a reward. It helps you reach 40 fast, which you can trade in for 250 glimmer and some crucible or Vanguard rep and marks., depending on who you turn it in to. Not quite as effective for getting glimmer, but you get the other perks too.

                  • You missed a few locations. Ontop of the building leading to Last Aray, behind it in the corner on the right (usually in the corner, jumping required.) and lastly behind the building on the Left, inside a high fenced area under pipes

                    I figured this out by myself. It's a great area to farm, every so often the war ensues. Good fun.
