You Have To Buy ‘Rage 2’ Special Editions If You Want The ‘Doom’ BFG
If you've been eyeing up footage of Doom's BFG (Big Fucking Gun) in Rage 2, thinking 'I can't wait to have my hands on that hot rocket!', then you're going to have shell out a little more to get it. A Bethesda community manager has clarified that the megaweapon will only be available to people who by the Deluxe and Collector's editions.
"I wanted to issue a correction about the BFG: at launch, the BFG will only be available as a premium item in the Deluxe and Collector's Editions," community manager Andre Carlos wrote on Reddit.
The Deluxe Edition will set you back £60 and it comes with the Rise of Ghosts Expansion, a set of cheat codes, an exclusive mission, a progress booster, the Nicholas Daine armour and settler pistol, a mutant monster truck skin, and a battle standard.
If you buy the Collector's Edition, which costs £120, you get everything that comes in the Deluxe Edition, plus a steelbook, poster, and Ruckus The Crusher Talking Head to mount on your wall. And who doesn't want to have a rubber mutant head barking out lines from the game whenever you walk past?

That's not a small amount of money to get access to a special weapon. Still, it isn't something that's exactly in the Rage canon and is an added extra, the sort of thing that is a good fit for a collector's edition. And, we can take some hope from Carlos' phrasing that "at launch" the BFG will only be available in those special editions. Maybe it will be released as DLC later.
Certainly, reading through the replies to Carlos' post on Reddit suggests that people are very keen to play with the BFG and what better way to alleviate their frustration than to sell them the gun at a later date... Okay, maybe that will cause more anger.
