The Truth About “Fake Players” Hiring Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Hey there, fellow gamers! Let’s talk about a really cool feature in Capcom’s latest high-fantasy RPG, Dragon’s Dogma 2. You know how you can rest in the game and your main Pawn goes off to work for other players online? Well, it turns out that these loyal NPCs come back with some pretty sweet gifts, like Rift Crystals (which you can use to hire other players’ Pawns) and consumables to keep you going.

But here’s the thing: not every player that hires your Pawn is a real person! Can you believe it? Capcom actually created this feature to make sure every Pawn gets a chance to shine, even if they’re not the most popular kid on the block.

A clever Redditor named MrFoxer figured this out and shared their findings on the game’s subreddit. They explained that Capcom sometimes creates these “fake players” to rent out your main Pawn, so you still earn those precious Rift Crystals even if no real players are interested in your Pawn’s services. It’s like a secret safety net for your digital sidekick!

So, how can you tell if your Pawn was hired by a real player or one of Capcom’s virtual stand-ins? It’s all in the report card. When your Pawn returns from their adventures, take a peek at the player’s name. If it’s grayed out, that’s your clue that the player wasn’t a real person. It’s a bit bittersweet, isn’t it? But hey, at least your Pawn is getting some love, even if it’s from a digital ghost.

Now, don’t think these fake players are just there for show. They can do everything a real player can, like rating your Pawn, giving them presents, and even helping them complete quests. It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between a real player and a fake one, unless you know what to look for.

Capcom even confirmed this sneaky feature in their official FAQ. They said that these fake players tend to show up when your main Pawn’s online access setting is set to “No One.” So, if your Pawn comes back from beyond the rift with goodies, but you see a grayed-out or dashed name, chances are they were recruited by one of Capcom’s virtual players.

At the end of the day, it’s a pretty thoughtful feature, don’t you think? Even if you can’t figure out who hired your Pawn, you can rest easy knowing that Capcom’s got your back. They’re making sure your loyal companion stays employed, no matter what. And that, my friends, is a really cool thing in my book.
