Loot Cave in Old Russia

To quickly get loot, especially high-level gear, go to Earth and find the cave at Skywatch in Old Russia. There will probably be players already there, making use of this trick. Hive Acolytes and Thralls spawn in waves from the cave and rush out. Kill them before they find cover, but don't head in for the loot just yet. Remain just far enough away, and the waves will spawn over and over again. Eventually, they'll have dropped a ton of loot for you to collect.

This method can also be used to build up a lot of glimmer, especially if you use the Black Wax Idol items, which increase the glimmer you get from killing Hive enemies.

Glimmer Face

Go to the tower and head to the gunsmith.

Purchase the uncommon shotgun Preacher Mkl and go to Venus.

Kill Praerton, or whatever his name is outside of the Vog raid using that shotgun.

He will drop 10,000 glimmer each time you kill him with Preacher Mkl!
