Duplication Exploit / Glitch

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, 

Just wanted to quickly let you know that the dupe glitch from technomancer and many other games that have a similar stash system is back.

So if you wanna get the extreme run quickly done or simply wanna cut down on some grinding, this may be for you.

 

Go to your stash (camp, your home in every city etc) and put one or two of the items you wanna dupe into the stash and then switch one category to the left or right and put the items you have the most of into the stash, too. The two items have to be "next" to each other basically and when you switch over with L1 or R1 the duping item has to be selected by default. So it would be best to only have those two items in the stash when you're doing it.

Starting on the item you have many of, press L1 (or R1) and X simultaneously. You know it worked when you get the popup dialogue to retrieve your many items from the stash, but in the background you should see the other tab with the item to dupe highlighted. If you confirm this dialogue you will retrieve the high amount of the duping item out of your stash, instead of the other one.

For example i usually put 2 ammo into the stash and all my leather (100+). Highlight the leather, press L1 and X, get 100 ammo, repeat if necessary and profit...

 

This can be perfectly combined with a totally overpowered Technician build where you only use guns and traps. I guess they made it stronger to compensate for the gold/item investment, but since this is not a problem anymore you can just spam bullets and magic plus stasis bombs (throwing phials) until everything is dead, similar to this:

Currently doing it this way to get the stupid extreme difficulty run done and then do my real, legit run afterwards.

 

Seems you can't dupe gold directly, but just dupe the most expensive thing you got and sell it. Seems the vendors don't have a budget and you can sell as many things as you want.

 

Hope the explanation was clear enough and most people should remember this kind of exploit from many other games with a stash anyway, but perhaps I'll link a quick video later if someone has problems.

The timing is a bit precise, you really have to press both buttons at the same time or it won't work. Just try and you'll eventually get it ;)

 

Otherwise fantastic game so far, already loved bound by flame and the technomancer but it seems this is their best work yet. Really just don't like difficulty trophies in semi-long rpgs like this, so i looked for a way around the extreme mode.

 

Have fun!

 

*edit*

Just in case someone has absolutely no idea what I was explaining, here is a visual representation:

Nice trick but not sure why this would be needed on an extreme run. I finished my run perfectly fine as a tech character, so duping items is not really needed tbh. But probably helpful for some!

The tech class (so guns and traps) is basically already OP as it is, true. But if someone just reeeaaally wanna get it over as quickly as possible, this might still be of help ;)

Or just for a quick nth playthrough to mop up some trophys or whatever. I always like having the option to cut grinding short like this in either case.

The same problem as in dragon age😏, a few classes to choose from, but only pays one. Copying items will certainly be useful, the more so that the game you have to pass a minimum of 2 times.

Not really having a hard time with my extreme run, using a magic build. Was only hard in the beginning. Useful trick for money though, would have been handy in the beginning of my extreme run as money is hard to get...doesn't matter much now because as a magic user, can't wear much of anything xD

 

What's up with this weird glitch where you get two Aphras after saving her buddies though? On normal mode I didn't get that, but on my extreme run I got two Aphras on the mission where you save her friends. o_O
