Diablo IV Trading Gets Disabled After Discovery of Dupe Exploit

Mother Lilith is highly disappointed of this despicable game exploit.

Blizzard has recently disabled the Diablo IV trading “until further notice” after it discovered players using the dupe exploit.

Diablo IV Trading Dupe Exploit Revealed

According to some reports, the exploit in question will involve one player starting the trade with another player and drop the items or gold in the trade slot then force to close the Diablo IV client. After that, the player will have to log back into the game but the items and gold will reappear in their inventory while also remaining in the other player’s inventory. A great dupe trick.

Fix on the Way

On the Diablo IV subreddit, a Blizzard representative stated that they are now working on a fix for the issue and will update the community once it has reinstated the ability to trade.

“Once that is done, we will continue to monitor this activity to ensure a healthy playing experience for all,” Blizzard said. “As always, any account that engages in gold and item duplication exploits will be actioned in accordance with our End User License Agreement. We thank you for reporting this exploit to us and your patience.”

Assurance of Not Gettinig Punished

Blizzard then did another post to reassure the concerned players who accidentally traded with another player that used the exploit that they will not be punished.

Diablo IV supports trading, but to an extent directly to players only. The in-game auction house got famously shut down way back in 2014 in Diablo 3 after tons of backlash from players. There is a loophole though for this year’s Diablo game. They use Discord to find buyers for their “high-end” items.

Diablo IV is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
