Loot Gaming is themed for every delivery. Typically, you can expect to hear about the upcoming theme shortly after the boxes ship around the 27th or each month. August’s theme was ‘Battleground’.


The inner box had a design this month as well – it looks like a callout to the October release of Battlefield 1!


This month’s information card was a HUGE fold out poster/infosheet.




Of course, it has all the information on the items that you’ve come to expect from any Loot Crate delivery.


Each month always includes a themed pin as well. Here is the Battleground theme pin.


Fallout Vault Boy Shirt – Value $15?

Fallout fans rejoice – show off all the vault boys! There is so much going on in this graphic, but the use of a single color makes it simple at the same time. I like it.



Dead Rising 4 Multitool – Value $10-15?

The next item is a little multitool featuring Dead Rising’s Frank West.


Frank’s name is etched into the handle!



I don’t know a lot about multitools, but it’s one of the first I’ve owned that had a little LED flashlight. Overall, it seems sturdy enough for practical use, which is important for this item.


Gears of War Classic Lancer Replica – Value $10?

The next item is from the upcoming Gears of War 4!


This mini replica gun was a spoiler item this month – and you can get the second replica in the Gears of War crate!

It’s actually got some decent detail – I was pleasantly surprised.



Battlezone Shot Glasses – Value $10?

These two shot glasses feature a classic warfare game – Battlezone. This was a first-person tank combat arcade game from Atari!

It came out in 1980 and was kind of a first dive into the VR world. With VR making such huge advances in the past 2-3 years, it’s fun to look back on games like this, and systems like Virtual Boy!



Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #1 – Value $3.99

This is a great comic for any fan of the Dark Souls RPG. This game is brutally unforgiving – I just got stressed out watching Twitch broadcasts of it!

This Loot Crate exclusive features 4 pages of concept art along with an exclusive variant cover.

Verdict: This month’s Loot Gaming featured a lot of franchises that have titles coming out in the next month or two – I think that made it more fun for me, my anticipation for those releases made the unboxing that much more fun. Overall, I thought it was a good month for Loot Gaming – it wasn’t a homerun for me, but I did think it was an above average Loot Gaming.

What did you think of the September Loot Gaming?

  1. Ooh. I just let our subscription lapse, and I might have regrets just on the t-shirt and the multi-tool.
