Witcher 3 Infinite Money Exploit Fixed in the Best Way Possible
CD Projekt Red deploys the "Bovine Defense Force Initiative."
The patch notes for today's Witcher 3: Wild Hunt update contained a curious line about the deployment of a certain "Bovine Defense Force Initiative." No other details were provided, but, given the language, it sounded like this might be a fix for the infinite money exploit that involved merciless cow murder.
Now we know that's exactly the case.

With the patch applied, a high-level, fast-moving, and deadly creature appears that will surely kill any low-level player attempting to cash in on the get-rich-quick scheme.
The exploit, discovered last month, involved killing cows and collecting their hides. Players quickly discovered that if they mediated for a certain period of time, cows in one early area of the game would respawn every time they woke up. Thus, players could stock up on cow hides to their heart's content and then sell them for a nice fee.
While not a bug, this method could be seen as undermining the integrity of the game and its economy. It's not surprising, then, that developer CD Projekt Red has taken action to fix the exploit.
Here is a close-up of the cow monster.
