Resisting loot collection in games is often extremely difficult, even when it’s actually junk – literally. In the round strategy Honkai: Star Rail you can now interact with a garbage can, for example. If you persist, you get something in return.
What the bin is good for
At first glance, it’s a normal garbage can, gray and well, full of garbage. Nothing exciting happens during the first interaction:
A garbage can, not remarkable in any way.the game tells us. But if you interact with the bucket full of dirt again and again, you will be rewarded.
First you stare at the bin and
hold back the urge to open them. Shortly thereafter, however, your attention falls on a slightly golden shimmering something that appears from under the lid. However, when you open the bin, it appears to be empty.
But if you dig even deeper, you will still find a little treasure: A trash can iconwhich you can attach to your profile.
However, your buddies are not so impressed by the digging, until finally the sentence falls:
… You don’t have to explain. I understand. The urge is too great to resist.

As if that wasn’t enough, you can reach into the bin again and find a postcard with the inscription:
Friend, you’ve crossed the line. That’s something you shouldn’t have touched. Signed Garbage King. In addition, there’s a coin for the trouble.
That’s far from the only unusual interaction option in Honkai: Star Rail. There are talking plants, teleporting toilets and, above all, many, many more garbage cans. You can see some of the funny dialogues here:

There are already a few memes and opinions about the garbage cans on the Internet. Reddit user lil_parasite calls the buckets her true love, DescriptiveKiwi on the other hand, celebrates the newly won icon – there are even fan drawings of their own:

Trash cans in games
Honkai: Star Rail plays with the trash cans for an obvious reason: the search for loot leads us to dig through the remains of the NPCs in some games, only a few of them question this.
In BioShock it would even be fatal, after all, delicious meals can often be found there. In Stardew Valley, at least we get the wrong look if one of the residents catches us.
Do you also search and collect everything you can get your hands on in games, whether it’s trash cans, piles of poop, or any other unsavory items? And can you laugh about the many interaction options in Honkai: Star Rail or have you ignored them so far? Write it to us in the comments!
