Anthem players have already found a way to skip its endgame grind and get the best loot

If you're level 30 in Anthem, the best way to get Legendary gear is to simply farm chests in freeplay.

Anthem has only been available for Origin Access Premiere subscribers for four days, and already hardcore players have reached its endgame and found a way to completely break it.

Once you complete the story and reach level 30, you begin the grind of Anthem's endgame, which involves running Strongholds (similar to Destiny 2's Strikes) and completing Legendary Contracts (randomized missions) at progressively higher levels of difficulty. At level 30, players will start out at Grandmaster 1 and work their way up to the excruciatingly difficult Grandmaster 3, which ramps up enemy health and damage to a degree that a mission that normally takes 20 minutes can take an hour or longer. The reward for persevering through these jumps in difficulty is an increased chance to net Legendary and Masterwork gear, which gives your javelin exosuit a massive boost in power but are also incredibly hard to get.

But clever players have already found a way to skip that entire grind and get the best loot right off the bat. "There is a farming method found in Anthem, in which you're just running around the map on freeplay and you loot chests over and over again," says YouTuber Aztecross Gaming in a video about Anthem's endgame. "Pretty much one entire rotation of these chests could get you at least a Masterwork if not a Legendary."

How it works is that players are going into Anthem's Free Play mode, which allows you to explore its open world map at your leisure, and finding the chests that spawn in all sorts of out of the way areas. Each time they open a chest on Grandmaster 3, there's a significant chance they'll get a Masterwork or Legendary item—but without having to endure the brutal difficulty of Anthem's actual endgame activities.

On Twitch, several streamers are making use of the method to quickly farm the best gear in the game without having to actually tackle difficult missions. You can watch streamer xGladd and his team entering Free Play, running the same route from one chest to the other, and then exiting Free Play and starting over. In the few minutes that I've been watching, multiple members of his team have earned Masterwork items.

If you want to try the method for yourself, we have a guide on where all the chests are found in Anthem so you and your friends can run a similar route and farm up some nice gear. It might be worth doing now, because I wouldn't be surprised to see BioWare patch this out pretty soon

Anthem is an upcoming online multiplayer action role-playing video game being developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. The game is slated for a worldwide release for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 22, 2019. Players will assume the role of a Freelancer, one of a group of people who leave their civilization to explore the surrounding landscape.

Anthem combines third-person shooter and action role-playing game elements in a "contiguous open world" shared with up to three other players in which they take the role of a Freelancer donning fully customizable exosuits called Javelins.[1] These suits can be customized to have various unique weapons and superhuman abilities.

Two classes of Javelins were shown during Anthem's presentation at Microsoft's E3 2017 Conference: the Ranger, which is an all-around and balanced Javelin, and the Colossus, which is a larger and more heavily armored Javelin made to fill in more of a tanking role.

Other Javelins include the Storm, which uses powerful technology to unleash the "rage of the hymn" while floating effortlessly in the air, and the Interceptor, which is focused on close-quarter combat and can move quickly into and out of combat. Players can build relationships with various non-playable characters, but they cannot establish romantic relationships with them, as was a trademark of previous BioWare games.

The central meeting point of the game takes place in Fort Tarsis, the central stronghold of Anthem. Built by the eponymous General Helena Tarsis, it serves as a fortified settlement against the threats of the outside world and is also the point where the player goes to receive new missions and freelance assignments. It is a melting pot where all the different factions of the game meet, including the Sentinels, Corvus, Cyphers, and Arcanists.

The game features both single-player and co-operative multiplayer elements in a "shared world" that can have up to four squad members per team. Teams can fight savage beasts and ruthless marauders while exploring lost ruins and experiencing massive, world-altering terrain occurrences, such as "Shaper Storms"
