Although Bungie nerfed the use of Lost Sectors for farming Faction Rally tokens in Destiny 2, determined players have found another way to gain the currency fast and efficiently. In fact, the best method found remains Lost Sectors, but players will need to approach them differently.
This latest Faction Rally token farm is fairly straightforward, and takes advantage of a loading point within one of the hidden areas. Players will want to look for a Lost Sector called The Weep that’s located in Winding Cove on the European Dead Zone.
For the first attempt, head through the Lost Sector as normal, kill the boss, and open the chest. Then, look for a path in the back of the Lost Sector, just above the chest. Head through that path (it should include open doors) and follow it until the destination says Winding Cove again. Then turn around and head back the way you came, the doors will now be closed but will open, and the chest will be available to open once again. Repeat this for as long as you want, earning 3 Faction Rally Tokens along the way.

It’s not the most exciting task in Destiny 2, but farming rarely is. Over the years in Destiny, players have found the most efficient ways to accrue an item or complete an activity, and those that choose to use that route make a choice to value reward over experience.
At the same time, Bungie tries to eliminate these farming methods while at the same time making those experiences worth the effort. For this second Faction Rally the developer buffed the Token reward for strikes since very few people seemed to be interested in doing them. Unfortunately, the root problem wasn’t that no one wanted to do strikes, but that the Faction Rally engrams were not consistent with rewards, and now that there is even more Faction loot in the pool, players are even more likely to get duplicates.
Nevertheless, we fully expect Bungie to nerf this farming method just like the last one. But hopefully by the time the third Faction Rally rolls around the Token system will have improved.
Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
