Something that really bugs me
That for one, isn't about the devs

This is it. Doing a simple division problem, you come out to needing 30,000 zombie kills to unlock a single skin, whereas to buy with GC it's a measly $2.75- I spend more than this every morning for breakfast.

At 14 hours in the game, I have roughly 400 zombie kills and ~15 player kills on my 'main' dudebro.

That's roughly 2 zombies per minute- usually in bunches.
Meaning roughly 15,000 minutes; at this rate, is needed to unlock a single skin of the 7 available. 250 hours of straight farming.

Say you ALWAYS got headshots, use an M4, and always buy stanag c-mags from the market.
C-mags are about $2, and contain 100 bullets. You would need 300 C-mags to get to 30000 kills, assuming you NEVER miss and NEVER lose any bullets and NEVER encounter other players.

That's $600.

Also, $FR_UNLOCK looks like a placement bit of code for an alpha state of a game. It just looks silly and unprofessional for something that should be 'complete'.

No, that one does not work. ):

There are, of course, exceptions to any rule.

The thing seems nigh unobtainable through regular play. Wouldn't be if unlocks weren't monetized. Another example of Hammerpoint prioritizing making money over making a good game.

Well, at least it doesn't improve your stats or anything, just cosmetic.

Yeah, it's just another really depressing example of money grubbing. Not that this is exclusive to HammerPoint, of course, but it's a big downer to see it coming from an indie company, man.

With the legendary pack I think I got 7 skins total. How many come with the $15 pack?

That plus the fact that the unreasonable XP cost had me assuming that was just a temp value that would be re-evaluated once the skills were put in. But, to be fair, I spend a lot of time just assuming features are in-progress, but I still write the bug for it.
