I set back time on my PS4 to get strike bounties done and to charge the lure. It's so much better solo.
In the PS4 settings we can change date and time. I set it back 4 or 5 years. That makes the game basically a single player game. Doesn't work in Crucible or Gambit though (game won't start activity), but it works with patrol, social spaces, and any strike, including the playlist.
