People are building robots to grind Battlefront 2 lootboxes
Grinding in any game is a bit of a chore. Especially when that chore takes 70+ hours to get the character you want. Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been at the top of headlines over the lootbox controversy that has marred its name since launch. But, players are not without some creative workarounds.
