If someone eventually finds the code for
OP8 Norfleets with who cares?
OP8 Perfect Bitch.
OP8 94% Sham.
OP8 All Hyperion Interfacer.
and a few others, and shares the barcodes, what's the point of a full year of farming?

OK, I can confirm a neat little "trick" for anyone that plays those scratch-off instant win lottery games. every single ticket has a unique UPC code, and as such, each yields a different item.

AND FURTHERMORE, and this is where it gets interesting, adding to the theory that different parts of codes designate different pieces of the item generated, we could theoretically try to determine what the last part of codes give (each ticket it numbered indivually at the end of it's UPC code).

I'm about to scan the **** out of anything I can get my hands on now that I'm home from work, I'll report back. I may end up doing this more than I actually play these days.

Got a level 55 purple Amplify Shield from the barcode on the back of one of my kids Magic Tree House books.

The point is you had fun farming and earning it on your own. Don't feel cheated because everybody gets it too.

But what you said is kind of the crazy part about this. Suppose someone does scan a code that is assigned to an OP8 Norfleet...BUT DOESN'T SHARE IT WITH ANYONE?????? It'll be like an unclaimed lottery ticket. Or the opposite of one. Or something. And WE'LL NEVER KNOW IF THE CODE EXISTED!!!!!!!!!!

I get this error while trying to scan barcodes. Obviously something is up with Shift. Oh well, I'll try again later. On a side note, I've scanned like 20 items and all I get are white items . Must keep trying .

I've been getting that too since I got home from work. It was working before, tho. I'm gonna assume it's down, just like they had problems with Loot Hunt from time to time...

Forget about randomly finding the code to a norfleet etc.
Eventually someone will figure out exactly how the code works, and will be able to construct codes for very specific guns. This is going to be just another gibbed app.

Could turn out that way...but what if they shift the number/x/o by one

Just a slight shift every week

Everything becomes different again....

I also think they have probably thought of exactly what you are talking about....

but we shall see...

in the meantime....FUN...LOL

this says they aren't going to change anything...once a QR or Barcode is tied to a loot item...it stays.....

I see some "Loot web sites" in the future.....

Or....maybe they will limit it to Non legendaries
