I only have 72 hours of gameplay under my belt (not including early access sessions) and I’ve never looted a cosmetic item. That’s not that bad, I know. I have friends who have over 300 hours and they’ve had just as much luck as me. But that’s not really what I’m here to talk about.
I have a friend who downloaded the game less than 24 hours ago, through steam’s family account sharing system, or whatever. And he has, maybe, two hours of gameplay logged at this point in time. His Sienna has a power level of around 70, let’s say. It’s low is the point.
We finish a level, we’re opening crates and he goes, “What’s Unchained?”
“It’s Sienna’s last career option.”
“Oh. Well, what’s a Skull Mask? How do I equip it?”
This sack of crap, this poor excuse for human bile loots a headpiece for Sienna’s Unchained class. Via a recruit chest or an accommodation chest, I know not nor do I care.
And that’s not even the kicker. In his mad dash to salvage his gear, this piece of work friggin’ throws his ill-gotten trophy into the fiery flames of the forge! Man, what a roller coaster of emotion that was.
Long story short, I think maybe the devs should throw in a good ol’ fashioned “Are you sure you want to do this?” when you opt to salvage a batch of gear and a cosmetic item is included in the mix.
