I like the game a lot, but the fact, that you can aquire golden weapons by a strange way (relation ship to GM or dev team…) is giving a very bad taste.
I know it is just slightly better, but if you want to take this game seriously, this is in my eyes a total no go.
you dont get a golden weapon if you have a relationship to a GM or Dev.
Everyone can buy them by using gold.
go to Armory - Packets: some packets do contain special weapons
or you go Armory - Blueprints and build your own weapons in Invasion Mode (Open World)
I hope this helps
