It wasn't even 24 hours before Bungie had to disable the brand new Veles Labyrinth Lost Sector at Legendary and Master difficulties. Introduced with the new Season, these Legendary and Master Lost Sectors are the best way for Guardians to get the new Exotic armor pieces, but they're normally at such a high Power level that players aren't expected to farm them until later in the season.
However, you should never underestimate the ingenuity of Destiny 2's playerbase. Within hours, an exploit was discovered that allowed Guardians to complete the Lost Sector completely solo at an extremely low Power level.
The process is outlined in the video below. Basically, Guardians with a high enough mobility can jump up a small hole in the roof that is normally for players to exit the Lost Sector. However, it's just low enough that players can jump up that hole and get to areas that would normally be inaccessible without going through the Lost Sector normally.
From here, Guardians can snipe the final boss and then safely make their way back to Lost Sector chest, completely avoiding every enemy. Other players have used slightly riskier weapons such as grenade launchers, but sniping is easily the safest and surest option.
For a time, this allowed players to acquire the new Exotic Gauntlets and also farm XP, but Bungie was quick to disable the Lost Sector after the exploit was discovered. Destiny 2 community manager dmg04 says that the Lost Sector should be back by the end of the week with some modification that gets rid of the exploit.
Guardians on Reddit became incensed after the Veles Lost Sector was disabled, accusing developer Bungie of being very fast to remove in-game exploits that benefit the player but very slow to patch bugs that are to the player’s detriment (although the top reply calls this a conspiracy theory that crops up every new season).
