Many of you might already be aware that a new exploit is currently circulating on consoles. Several videos and screenshots proof that some players are able to dish out way more damage than intended. They pretty much one-shot content.
There were some speculation going around about the cause, but it seems to be overstacking Critical Severity with the Wild Storm Elixir. We have multiple sources confirming the issue. Not all details have made it to the public yet however. Observed exploiters log in and out quite frequently, but that’s only part of the process. And while it’s definitely working on consoles, we have conflicting reports whether it might be possible on PC as well.
Anyway, it is an issue right now and several threads on the PWE platforms have been muted (1 2 3 4). Youtuber Garlaanx even got banned (again) on the subreddit just confirming that there is an exploit.
We’ll update this post in case additional information becomes available. Have you witnessed this exploit in one of your runs? Share your experience in the comments or visit the corresponding thread on our message board.
