    So far, we've discovered how to obtain a single badge
    Go to http://store.steampowered.com/app/253750/ on Chrome or IE (Firefox doesn't work)
    Within search the store

    TYPE the "SEARCH" and press Enter
    SEARCH

    a popup should load. (You may have to refresh the page if you get a 'null')
    [IMG]
    Type 1v7531 in the popup like so and press enter.

    It should then take you to your badge

          The code on the bottom left of Card 6. If you put into the ID of a steam url, then it goes to a profile named jacktheblack and it has a bunch of binary in the profile description.

          Translates into this:
          Nope, not here keep going

          So far nobody was able to figure out the hidden text on that Profile Picture, but as i leaned forward, i saw an outline... it's the HL3 Lambda Logo. Interesting....

          EDIT: I threw it into paint and just used the bucket, and it drew an outline around it perfectly too... You can grab the picture from the profile and do the same if you think i am just trolling.

          According to /r/steamsaledetectives/, that profile is fake and has nothing to do with the ARG.

          Speaking of Lambdas, there's also this if you haven't seen it already.


          Oh and the code 1v7531 is suppoed to resemble the traditional lambda logo + crowbar. Lots of interesting stuff and this could hopefully lead up to something big.

              Some people believe the 1v is Lambda symbol, some believe it is a crowbar.

              ew. they allow whitelisted ads now. Basically whoever throws some money their way, they ignore their ads. Use uBlock Origin instead. On topic though, i'm not entirely sure why it doesn't work for me.
