Diablo 2 Resurrected’s technical alpha has also revived an old problem in action RPG: duping. Players discovered a way to “dup” items in the game – and it did it quite easily.
Anyone who used to play the original Diablo 2 regularly on Battlenet can certainly still vividly remember a very specific problem that the online mode of the game had to contend with: namely the so-called duping. Duping, i.e. the (unauthorized) doubling of items with the help of exploits, was one of the biggest annoyances in Diablo 2 for honest Diablo 2 fans and was (unfortunately) quite widespread. So it is hardly surprising that players have already discovered a corresponding bug in the technical alpha of Diablo 2 Resurrected.
Simple duping method should be fixed soon
Reddit user iNexius has published a video of the duping bug, which shows how easily players can currently double items in Diablo 2 Resurrected:
Reddit user Kagirinaku describes how the duping process works:
- You move an item to the shared storage, save it and leave the game.
- Now you log in again and take the item from the shared storage.
- Press Alt + F4.
- Now the item should be in your warehouse as well as your inventory.
iNexius has reported the bug to the developers of Diablo 2 Resurrected at Blizzard. We expect the team to fix this bug shortly. Meanwhile, fans hope that the alpha testers will find as many more duping bugs as possible during the test phase so that the developers can remove these cheating possibilities before the game is released. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the Alpha and Beta of Diablo 2 Resurrected will do just that.
But now we want to know from you: What are your experiences with duping in Diablo 2? Are you hoping that Diablo 2 Resurrected will remain free from such cheating? Or maybe you used to cheat yourself with the help of duping? Write us your opinion in the comments.
