It's natural for gamers to want to report the existence of exploits that are found in the the multiplayer game they're playing. After all, (almost) nobody wants to have to have an experience where the balance and fun factor is ruined.
With Conan Exiles, Funcom is offering an extra incentive for gamers to expend an effort to make reports: money. Seeking to ensure "a fair and balanced playing field" for their survival game, the company is rewarding those in the community who make the existence of big exploits known to them with up to $500.
Funcom describes the kind of exploits they're looking for as such: "Serious exploits which can be used in online play and on multiplayer servers. (This would for example be exploits which gave certain players big advantages in the game, like duplicating items or being able to build inside mountains/rocks.)."
If you wish to report something that fits the criteria, you'll have to head over to conanexiles.com/exploithunters and write a test case for the related exploit in detail. "You must describe each step needed to reproduce what you have found," says Funcom. "Please include your PayPal email so we can reward you for your help. Also, please include your name or Steam user name if you wish it to be included in our list of rewarded Exploit Hunters."
All submissions will be evaluated, but only those which present a previously unknown serious exploit that hasn't yet been reported will receive an answer and a reward. Said reward will be sent via PayPal and ranges between an amount of $100 to $500, depending on "how valuable" the submission is.
Exploit hunting rewards aside, another new addition to Conan Exiles is the trebuchet, which you can see in action below.
