Call me skeptical

a kid gone claimed that he was playing with a dev (because he was wearing gearbox employee unquie skins as the claim goes) as krieg who dropped a every leg in the game. op8 ish.

I have never heard of devs wandering out to play with randoms… with a glitched back pack.

I played with a kid who made a similar claim. You know those items you can sell over and over to increase your backpack space? He claimed that it was a developer item given to him specifically because he has a YouTube channel. Why do kids these days spout such rubbish? We all knew the truth, but he swore black and blue. Ugh.

While devs have most definitely play with randoms (there’s an achievement for it in BL1), in this case i call shenanigans.
Not the first time there have been reports of people impersonating devs, wearing that exclusive skin, all while dropping what is probably hacked/modded gear.

I have run across similar scenarios. That is one of the main reasons I came to these forums. To distinguish fiction from non-fiction.

you mean the extra secret quest to accumulate 500 eridium (ck), 500 seraph crystals (ck) and 2 special gold keys hidden near a volcano (not found yet) to unlock another 3 backpack slots, may not be on the up and up :scream:

I’d hate to think I may have wasted my time :wink:

Wonder if the perpetrator is the same one I encountered a while back? Had the same glitched backpack (although I imagine that’s fairly common) and at least one dev skin (I suppose those aren’t exactly uncommon either - if you know how to generate one, …)

Somewhat embarrassed to admit that I have a Zer0 dev skin because this individual dropped a bunch of skins which I picked up and used, and it was just one of about a dozen. They’d mentioned the glitched backpack, and I just said “No thanks”, but they didn’t say anything about the skins. At the time, I didn’t know about the dev skins and I just thought it was a really cool rare skin. Thing is, you can’t exactly delete it without losing everything, so I still have it. Oh well :frowning:
