Glu’s famous Gun Bros features a $500 IAP
IAPs, like all microtransactions, are a touchy subject. People will often complain if a game features microtransactions, and call it a “pay to win” game, or a “win with your wallet” game. There’s always a group of people that support them however, mostly as it helps developers earn money.
Whether you stand on the side of the angels or the devils on this one isn’t the focus of the discussion here, though. What we’re going to talk about is the Kraken gun, the IAP that currently costs $500 (also known as 3499 War Bucks, the Gun Bros in-game currency).
Getting this kind of money in-game is unrealistic at best, especially since a certain glitch that allowed you to earn a lot of money has been fixed. So why Glu decided to up the price of their most powerful weapon from $200, its old price to $500 is beyond us.
Either way, here’s a video of the weapon in action, as shown by a player that used the previously existing glitch to earn the in-game currency to purchase it (back when it cost “only” $200):
