Enlarge / Note the “9999999” Mirian that allows for infinite loot box purchases.
The presence of randomized “loot boxes” in games has received renewed critical attention of late, with aggregator OpenCritic planning to flag the controversial business model on its site’s review collections. Now, some gamers are using a glitch to get around part of the loot box grind in the recently released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.
PC Shadow of War players can get infinite amounts of Mirian—one of the game’s fictional currencies—by using a script that edits memory addresses through the popular Cheat Engine tool.
In and of itself, that’s not all that exceptional; “infinite money” cheats and exploits are relatively common in single-player games (and even in some online games, with much more disruptive results).
What makes the “infinite Mirian” cheat more significant is that it can be used to purchase infinite Silver War Chests, which in turn grant new “Epic” orc followers and consumable in-game items.

These followers and items can be earned through regular game play, but doing so requires a lot of grinding through battles and challenges, especially near the end of the game, according to reviews.
