Legendary skins still bugged.
Soooo, played with a friend and some pubs yesterday, had my Mars Ultor skin equipped, and in-game anticheat flagged me as a cheater because of the skin.

This is a persistent problem, and I was wondering when (if ever) there will be a fix for this, either by the devs, or the modding community

I always assumed it was difficulty connecting to the player inventories, which was more Valve's end than Overkill's.

At any rate it is rather annoying, yeah.

Maybe cos you mod legendary skins which can`t be modded and thats no fair? Imma use some of legendary but never have that problem.

No, it's not that. I've run into that problem without doing that.

From what I understand how legendaries work, owning them basically flags your account with the "DLC" to use that legendary, so I would assume this is what's happening.

I don't think it should go as far to flag as a cheater when you obviously have said legendary though.

It still is true that legendary owners are screwed. The Breaker game breaking bug still isn't fixed after 6 months.

Which one? The one where people can't join games with other people who use it? If it's the same as the old Santa's Slayers bug, it's due to Overkill not having a low detail model for it, so anyone who has that graphics option unchecked gets an infinite loading screen. That they eventually patched it for the Santa's Slayers 6 months later but forgot to do it for the Apex to begin with is pretty funny.

Since it's tied to the game anti-cheat that just flags people for not owning DLC, I don't know that they can make that distinction.

The Apex causes people to crash. As in just being 'that guy' with the skin will crash people in your lobby.

My demon occasionally marks me as a cheater with people I consistently play with as well.

This is usually caused by them not knowing.
Stuff like... posting in General rather than bug reporting does actually help by making this issue completely invisible to the people that it should reach.

Other legendaries do that, notably Green Grin, Rodina, Apex, Demon and Ultor it seems.

It's been reported several times. Just a cursory search of "Apex" in the bug reporting subforum will show that.

There's even a rather large thread that has gotten a response from an Overkill developer here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/218620/discussions/14/366298942113279687/

It's just that the issue has not been fixed. Reported in July; no attention from Overkill until late October. The safe was introduced at the end of June, so the skin and its bug has been around for 5 months now.

This is specifically the Apex bug. I don't know if there's any good in reporting this general "anti-cheat" bug as it seems to be a problem with the anti-cheat and Valve's inventory servers.

The OP is about an entirely different skin though, fairly sure the Apex is the only known one at the moment.

See my edit. It's likely out of Overkill's hands, unless they want to change their anti-cheat.
