100% critical and x 500 multiplier, it's not a gun, it's a cheat. Using it without reporting is a cheat too

@Franck, you can be refunded/compensated for the weapon change. Please continue the conversation with the Customer Care team. (The agent will get back to you soon)

exactly. they knew full well this wasnt intended. Countless clans have been battered in wars by these weapons. Im amazed they have the audacity to demand compensation to be honest.

Yep, and you'd all pass up the £50 marked price (price tag put on by accident but store has to honor it, in the UK at least) XBONE X £500 pack in a store!

Same thing in reverse, you pay the £500 full price and someone from the store comes round with an XBox360 under their arm and says they made a mistake, you'd hand the whole lot back and take the replacement wouldn't you?!?

It was quiet till now about that, funny I don't remember a thread saying "lvl10 core taken out by sniper rifle WTF!"

GL goofed on it, if there was any sort of currency (virtual might even be counted as comparable to real) transaction it's a difficult one to remedy as there will be some understand and take the coin back some will say stuff you and want to keep the (virtual) goods.
What is unfair is that they change the goods remotely after the fact without an announcement and compensation stated publicly.

I don't understand why GL would refund a gun that was purchased a couple years ago. I also don't understand why someone would be so upset that GL took away upgrades to a gun that were never intended to get added and were not there until much later than when the gun was purchased. At the same time I'm not going to call someone a cheater for using a gun that GL put in their game. I have had a couple guns in the past that got a damage boost after the fact (although small compared to this). I never saw using them as a cheat. I think some need to just be happy they got a bonus for a while and let everyone else get miffed at GL for letting an extremely overpowered gun slip into the game.

Bloody hell 2016, now they complain, if I got 2 years out of one gun I'd be over the moon!
That and why did it take so long to come to the fore, again don't remember the 'Core taken down by sniper' PMSL :D

thats a silly comparison. There are legal things covering selling like that and stores, certainly in the UK, have to honour things when they make a mistake. 

but this is not a situation where Gameloft advertised a gun with certain specs and sold it at a rock bottom price. the bonus's were obviously an error and the players knew that. They would have known full well that at some point the accident would be corrected.


Next door forgot to put a password on his wifi so for two years ive been downloading movies free of charge using his internet. Now he's realised and password protected it. It happens, but you just consider yourself lucky for the last two years free internet, you dont bang on his door and demand he refund the website subscription you just paid out for.

because when suspicious damage is done to a core what do people look at? the gear equipped and the exotic weapon equipped. 

nobody thinks to look at what sniper rifle they have equipped
