Everywhere I've looked people 100% of the time say that to rank up the collector you need to buy the $700 metal detector, but I just went from lvl 1-20 doing a full clear of the map with only the shovel using the online collector's map.

So obviously the metal detector is worthless in actually ranking up the role but is it worth it for the money you'd make with the exclusive things you'd find? I made about $1500 in my 3.5 hour map clearing run, is the return worth the $700 investment?

You opened this topic on the Story Mode Board.
There is a stickie with a link to the RDRO message board at the top of the page.

Post your topic there. You'll actually reach people who play online. Good luck.

But... on the bright side
We do happen to have some extra metal detectors we would be happy sell... for the right money...
and best of all... they not only detects metal, they also beep beep towards the online message board (when switched for that)

Make inquiries within or below... it does not affect your financial credit score... not sure about your social score.

There is NO! worthwhile return for continually supporting Micro Transactions......... that is unless you call ruining quality games a worthwhile venture.
