Guy Builds Robot To Grind (Badly) For Battlefront II Loot Boxes

There are two ways to unlock stuff in Battlefront II. You could pay for it, which sucks, or you could build a sense of pride and accomplishment by constructing a robot to grind progression for you.

Lowberg has opted for the latter, whipping up this cute lil' joke robot that obviously can't play the game properly, but can do just enough to stop him getting booted for inactivity by occasionally jumping and moving the player around, thus picking up points just for participating.

It's not a genuinely useful thing that's actually going to get him hundreds of loot boxes (see above), but if he had a good book to read or some hoops to watch on another screen, this would at least be a good way to get two things done at once.

    My sense of pride and accomplishment at not having bought this game is building by the day.

      The sheer number of gullible consumers is astounding. The game will be a success in spite of its awful business practice because it's star wars (yay?) and then history will repeat itself because people have no goddamn common sense.

    and... he earns more credits with that thing than me who actually plays

    LOL, in all honesty this is what will happen to games that adopt such HORRID grinding and pay2win themes.

    Also I'd hardly call this a bot.

    I remember when Rocket League introduced crates and you'd get game after game of people just doing doughnuts... ugh...

    This shit wouldn't happen if people simply stopped supporting this kind of crap. Vote with your wallets, people. Sheesh.

    What a loser, I hate these AFK people clogging up servers with their annoying habits... Same results can be achieved with a few elastic bands...
