Weapons cheat

Post by Spooky » October 8th, 2014, 2:37 am

I used to have the weapons cheat that allowed you to get pretty much all of the weapons from a store. There was a password and then you could stock up with all of the weapons you wanted.

Can someone please refresh my memory here of the password and place to get these weapons?

You may be thinking of the Black Market in Darwin Village. It's not a cheat, you just need a password to shop there.

Thanks for the reply!

However, maybe i'm wrong because it's been so long, but I remember there was a glitch or something like that that allowed you to stock up with almost any weapon for free.

Can't say I know what you mean, then. There's Darwin and Sleeper Base. Those two give you the weapons and armor that make your characters gods.

There's also the Super Loot Bag glitch...

Famously: during character creation you can give all your gear to a single team member, remove the other party members and get new members with a fresh gear (repeat for as much gear as you can carry).

Well you don't actually need the password, with a bit of luck you can take the guards out and then shop. And with a bit of luck you can do it at pretty low level. So really you just need to know the store is there.

I remember the store cheat. It was at the Shop in Quartz. You could do something (type a password or do a maneuver then type a password) and could get infinite items. I keep looking and finding the loot bag trick.

I did this shop chear (a friend showed me) back in the 1980s. My friend no longer recalls this and everyone seems to discount it; but it was an awesome cheat.

I have been looking for this since the last play through I ran out of ammo from all the shops. Thank goodness someone else remembers this!

The Superloot bag trick was a thing in the IBM version (can't speak to the Apple II or C64 versions), and was available in the Acapulco Club in Needles and Fat Freddy's Casino in Vegas (there might have been other locations that exhibited the same bug, but I never came across them). IIRC, it works as follows:

1. Play and win a round at the table (or slot machine, as the case may be). Might want to raise your Gambling skill, or this will take a long time.
2. Leave the loot bag instead of picking it up.
3. Go and win a hand at a different spot.
4. Take the second loot bag, and immediately drop an item (any item).
5. The first loot bag should now be magically transformed into a superloot bag. You might have to PgDown a couple of times after accessing it. You'll get lots of stuff that aren't real items (like "Name AC"), but in the mix will be regular weapons and armor.

You can also spawn a super loot bag in the Stagecoach Inn, but it frequently caused game crashed and the horrible party-in-a-mountain bug.
