Dying Light patched out its famous loot-harvesting weapon-duplication trick once again this week. And once again, someone found another way to perform the same exploit. Follow the new instructions in the video above, especially if you need help surviving hard mode. Thanks to Reddit's Uber-Lurker for the PSA. Step-by-step instructions included below:
From the info on Uber Lurker's video:
1. Find any flat surface or wall where you can grapple but not hang on.
2. Move your hook reticle/crosshair upwards up to half or less of the maximum grappling distance. This is just for safety purposes so you don't die upon hitting the ground.
3. Grapple up then right after the grappling animation ends, press the R2 button while falling down. You should see your equipped weapon being thrown away.
4. Use the grappling hook button again anywhere. There should be an extra hovering weapon in your screen.
5. To collect the duplicated weapons, grapple towards any surface you can't latch on. This works well on liquid surfaces as you only have a few seconds to pick up the items.
1. Your game will glitch out after using the grappling with the extra hovering weapon. Take a nap or go to a new map to release it.
2. The items disappear quickly so a maxed out power level helps out.
3. Your co-op buddies can't pick up your duplicated items.
4. This should also theoretically work on the Xbox One and PC.
5. You can throw away any weapon you have including guns AND use them as a projectile. It's a beautiful sight when a zombie's face gets smashed in with your rifle.
6. Finally, the best thing about this glitch, you can now wield Mjolnir and be the god of thunder!
