White Hat Hackers Reward
The White Hat topper is recorded to be owned by about four players. They received the topper by helping developers fix a critical exploit in the game, instead of abusing the exploit themselves. The topper cannot be obtained by any other means, but it can be traded.
The term White Hat refers to an ethical computer hacker, or a computer security expert, who specializes in penetration testing and in other testing methodologies to ensure the security of an organization's information systems.
These toppers are only available by purchasing the related DLC for them.
