Anything you get with Edge of Darkness, can be earnt simply by playing the game. Maxing out your bunker, will lead to a larger stash size. Completing tasks will lead to a larger secure container etc. You've walked into the game when most people are high level with all the best weapons/gear. It's not quite representative of how the game works. In a recent discussion with Pestily (Aussie Streamer), Nikita (Owner/Developer of BSG) confirmed there will be a system much like Diablo 3 introduced. One permanent type character, and one "season" type that is reset after a set amount of time.
