Working Overload loot cave spawn

Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster. Some of you may remember me from HIH.

Either way, I was doing some engram farming today on venus, the one with the Y axis spawn reset and I started to notice something strange. The enemies were respawning before I got a chance to double jump off the door frame. I ran inside the room to grab my engram drops and the enemies spawned while I was in the room. As I went into the little cubby that they actually appear in, they spawned right next to me. So I figured hey, may as well farm the hell out of it while I can. It was beauty. If someone came into the game and interrupted the spawn, I would just wait it out and as soon as they left it went back to being instant respawns without me having to move from the doorway at all.

I attempted to recreate this a few times to see if it was a one time thing and it wasn't. I can recreate it every time. I don't have a video of the process but I have a short one of the end result. I'll upload it and link to it here with an update when finished. Below I'll also outline exactly how I did it.

Ok, to do the spawn overload (or whatever this will end up being called) you go to the loot cave on Venus, the one where you jump off the door frame and the servitor, vandals, and dregs spawn, make sure you have a rocket launcher and full ammo for it.
Kill everyone in the room, go outside and initiate the spawn again but don't enter the room. As soon as you land on the ground, shoot a rocket into the small opening in the door way, if you got the angle right everything should die with one rocket. As soon as you shoot the rocket, jump up onto the doorway again and initiate the spawn. Do this over and over again as quickly as possible without missing a beat. After the last rocket is shot off, if you made them respawn quick enough, you should just be able to sit in the room and have them respawn in front of your face over and over again. 
As promised here is the video link. First time uploading a crappy cell phone video to tinypic so hopefully it works. Also before anyone asks, I was doing this entirely solo.

Dude if you got Xbox one. Use twitch to broadcast a video then upload that video onto youtube.

And I hope someone figures this out cause I'm having trouble doing it.

Oh sorry, I'm doing it on a PS3. I fell asleep not long after I posted this haha. I'll be doing some more engram farming today so I'll keep coming back with updates or maybe I missed something? If anyone wants to add me on PS3 my name is NarTwitter

Well heres another idea then. Before you go posting another method about another spot. You should ask someone you know to hold the phone while you show us how to do this in a video.

or you could dumb it down for people like me with a step by step tutorial?.

Haha I have quite a few roommates. The pepsi is not all mine :tongue:

I'm still trying to figure out exactly how this works, hence me not having a step by step guide up yet. What I posted up top is exactly what I did.

So far I've been engram farming for about a half hour or so now. Wasn't working when I first entered Venus so I assumed that it was because there wasn't a buildup of engrams or ammo on the ground (maybe something to do with the overload like the piles of dead elites in Halo 2??) so I started just farming as usual. Once I got a nice buildup I went back to my rocket method described above and hoped for the best. No luck yet.

I also have a theory that it has something to do with another player entering the area roughly the same time a spawn takes place. If the spawn respawns for you and the other person at the same time maybe that causes it to act as if the spawn point is only recognizing the second player? That would make sense as to why it tespawns over and over again no matter how close you get to them.

I'll be online pretty much all day here so if anyone wants to maybe give this a try a bit later ill be totally down.

Sorry for the lack of info and shoddy details. I'm trying to get it together the best I can here haha. If I can figure it out to make it work every time I'll definitely post an in depth step by step guide for you all.

I think I understand what your saying. I'll try it later with Gjallahorn and see if I can get it to trigger.

Awesome. I'm sure if we can collectively figure this out before Bungie patches that loot cave then we can get some mad farming in for sure, and maybe get some insight on how to overload any spawn cave. That would be definitely useful.

Can you better describe where this location is? Jumping off a door does not ring any bells. What area, how far away from start, showing how to get there would be helpful.

No one actually knows how to do this yet... The OP did not post a very clear tutorial. Just wait till someone figure it out.

Have you youtube'd this either? Do you know how many different Venus Loot caves people have come up with? There are dozens!! I was just asking for clarification Yo! Also I typed in Loot Cave 6.0, not Venus loot cave. FYI

And Erm........... really. Spit it out

This is the one I think he is talking about. Again just double checking!!


Not my video, I repeat not my video

My bad, it really doesn't show much but a doorway that he is standing in. Doesn't show any scenery or a verification point. Real bad tut. I honestly think the video I uploaded is the one he is speaking about.
