Destiny 2 Black Armory Scourge Of The Past Insurrection Prime Boss Cheese

You Can Cheese Insurrection Prime In Destiny 2’s Scourge Of The Past Raid

Let’s face it, Destiny wouldn’t be the game we know it to be without any cheeses. It’s been the case since Atheon was being pushed by solar grenades off Vault of Glass, or Crota kneeling forever when someone disconnects. That’s also what we saw in Destiny 2 during the Riven boss fight in Last Wish. While it took the top teams in the world almost an entire day to beat it, players eventually found a means to forego the mechanics of the fight by way of cluster bomb rocket launchers. Today, it seems even the final boss of the Scourge of the Past raid is not immune to such trickery. That’s because a cheese for the Insurrection Prime boss fight has been discovered.

The video above comes from Reddit user El2mador who provided a quick rundown of what needs to be done:

  • Destroy Insurrection Prime’s shields/crit spots first
  • Kill the first Berserker as directed by the player handling the map
  • Pick up only one orb (you don’t need the second)
  • Whoever picked up the orb just waits for the timer start dropping to five seconds
  • Run up to the boss and let yourself explode when the timer hits zero

Apparently, the orb’s explosion counts as the tank’s shot as well. This means it will also cause the boss to get stunned and open up its chassis that houses the servitor/crit spot. You can begin the DPS phase immediately.

Speeding Things Up

What this means is that you’ll no longer waste time hunting down a second Berserker, or rushing because the wipe timer has begun. It’s as easy as killing the first Berserker and everyone getting ready for a quick DPS phase.

To tell you the truth, there are actually cheeses for almost every encounter in Scourge of the Past. There are ways to instantly complete the SRL/Servitor Chase part, and even a means to make Insurrection Prime damage itself with rockets as discovered by user MuffinXLord.

Truly, it wouldn’t be a Destiny raid without any sort of cheese or exploit. In any case, for those looking to do things more “legit,” you can always check out our complete Scourge of the Past raid guide.
