Replicators are stations that can turn crafted materials into loot. Their locations are randomized, and some items rotate daily, weekly, and seasonally.

Reddit user IDoApex revealed an easy trick of waiting on top of a Replicator for players. If you catch someone with poor awareness, they may start using the Replicator without even noticing you on top.

From there, all it takes is a direct hit with an Arc Star and a few bullets to finish the job.

One player responded, “I know lately I have been seeing people hiding, but I think it’s my imagination and convince myself it’s a prop. I then proceed to get shot a lot.”

Another user added, “imagine having the best game of your life, and then it ends because of this.”
