Just pulled one!
The reload animation on mine is wrong, it's sort of like a magnum. Also it looks just like a wolverine. Anyone else have one, notice this?

Is it a wolfhound or a wildcat?

Do you have any pics?

I have it too (amazingly I got it on the first lockbox after the patch. The ONLY time in my life where I've been lucky. lol ... Well I got the phoenix mount in WoW too I guess).

I just tried it out. It does animate like it's a has a rolling chamber instead of a clip.

Mine does too, on the card. But it reloads funky and in my hand or if I view it, it looks looks like a wolverine. I have othe wildcats and they look like wolfhounds.

I pulled one and after i modded it it looked more like my wolfhound. It's pretty nice but then i had a pretty nice wolfhound to. Hits alittle bit harder but not by much and no that wasn't a complaint.

Go figure, my main is EGO 4800 and I was really holding off on opening major boxes until i was 5200+.
I opened one tier 4 box after the update just to see, and got all blue junk. Last night, just to burn some keys, I got another tier 4 and got the jackpot wildcat. I haven't used it any, the AF to keep it at my level is my focus now...

They are cutting the arkforge you need to to level a weapons ego by 50%. (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?172419-Upcoming-Changes-on-PTS&p=1604025&viewfull=1#post1604025)

I pulled one and it was glitched. The overload ability would not trigger. I emptied the mag on full reload, and used all of my bullets 4 times. Not one single time did overload activate. I had to log out and log back in for it to work properly.

So instead of 10 AF, it will be 5. whoopdi-freak'n-do. We still have to pay 500 to go from epic to legendary. Until they announce they are doing that as well, I could care less.

I'd rather they would cut the cost of re-mastering a weapon as well.

That as well, so unless it's at LEAST a 50% across the board reduction to cost, it's not worth my time. If not, at least let us use salvage to upgrade. I'm sitting on millions of salvage with nothing to use it on.

Same here! Got a bug last night, my jackpot gun would do damage but not kill anything. All my other guns would work fine. I looked at it in my inventory and the gun was red. I need to check this out today after work, I have all the DLCs.

Take your crying somewhere else. Some of us have Legendary weapons, and the cost dropped by 25 every 100 EGO. That is a big deal for people who are lucky enough to get oranges at low levels.

Is the thing tied to the gunslinger dlc or is it exempt from it like the orange blade was exempt from having to have the castithan dlc? If it is tied to the dlc it will be useless to most f2p players and so not that big of a draw.

My understanding is that non-DLC owners can pull it but it will not be useable. We'll have to wait and see when someone that doesn't have DLC gets a wildcat and if they can use it or not.

Isn't it great when you win something from a slot machine and have to pay the casino more money if you want to use it? :D

What would be great (if they do not want to wave the dlc requirement) is if the drop was smarter so that the jackpot weapon was something that took the player's dlc spread into account and came up with one that could actually be used by the player. Of course it would mean more jackpot weapon possibilities would have to be set up so it will never happen...

It is too bad since if the player could actually use it and get used to the special features it would be good incentive to actually buy the dlc to get more weapons with similar special features instead of just annoying them with junk that looks good on the card but is useless like all that 7th legion garbage that is forced on players without the dlc in Silicon Valley (and now elsewhere as well). The fact that the 7th legion schtako uselessly takes up the higher end weapon slot in the reward more often than not is even more revolting and makes players sick of the stuff and so less likely to buy the dlc (and even more likely to walk away from the game in disgust and play something else for that matter).

The high end drop roll is always a roll from the core game loot table. I've received dozens of Legendaries from Incursions and not a single one of them is a 7th Legion Weapon. I have never even received an Epic 7th Legion weapon. They are always Rare or Uncommon.

I've received dozens of Legendaries from Incursions and not a single one of them is a 7th Legion Weapon. I have never even received an Epic 7th Legion weapon. They are always Rare or Uncommon.

I should have phrased that differently since I was not thinking of purple or orange at the time; the only time I was at a Silicon Valley event that had enough people to push the threat level high enough for purple I got a core set sawed off slugger (and of course a 7th legion green of some sort) but one data point is not enough to draw conclusions from so I ignored it. I also should have differentiated the geographic element better. I suppose it could also just be a long string of bad luck too, but the length of the run makes it less likely than them being high on the lower end tables.

In Silicon Valley they seem to drop as the main weapon reward more often than not if you top out at the green or blue weapon score, the one you get right away when the scorecard comes up (I assume that is the main one since when I get purple or the occasional orange in the northern events it usually appears in that slot) and rest that straggle in over the next few minutes or more are usually either lesser rarity or at least simpler weapons with "two banger" synergies or none at all (or more 7th legion...). A few times I have gotten nothing but 7th legion weapons along with the usual scrip and whatnot which is rather annoying to say the least.

In the northern landmasses the 7th legion stuff seems to still be on the bottom, I have not gotten anything higher than green ones there, and them at a lesser rate than normal greens, and I hope it stays that way instead of creeping higher. For my (relatively) higher EGO characters it is not a problem there since I do not use green that much with them but for lower EGO toons it is just another useless item that takes the place of something that may have some actual use. (I have several characters that I only run with a few friends I have talked into playing the game and with the usual scheduling conflicts it comes out to only playing a few hours at a time at most so they do not advance anywhere as quickly as an independent toon).

We took a look at this. There's a couple models used for wildcats and this particular one exhibits the problem you mentioned. Since the gun is "in the wild" now, I'm loath to change it to the more common wildcat model which doesn't have this problem. Instead, I'll see if we can fix the anim, though that requires a full patch so isn't something that can be done as quickly.

While the idea sounds nice, you would then end up with people complaining about getting an inferior or unwanted Jackpot. Once you have two or more possible weapons of remotely "Jackpot" quality, different people are going to have differing opinions of their favorite. You will also have the issue of people who might actually be willing to buy the DLC to use a DLC weapon, who will complain when the game gives them a (likely worse) non-DLC alternative.

The best two solutions would either be to not use DLC weapons as Jackpots or to make any such DLC weapon usable by the owner regardless of DLC ownership. However Trion wants to make money, and both of those solutions remove a winner's encouragement to buy the related DLC.

Ty.ty.ty. I have loved the wolfhound since launch, and love the wildcat even more. Looking forward to having my jackpot feel like the original. Will it look like a wolf/cat too, or still like a wolverine?

This game has been very kind to me lately. I was a main player of rift, and after going to pax party, I got a code for defiance so I was like let me log in to the game, create a character and see what I get. I got this blackish invisible like sword and was like man this is sick I love it. Later to find out how rare plague blades are by seeing 0 people with them and every high ego was like man nice plague blade. I felt like one of the cool kids in town.

After a week of playing I couldn't put this game down, it reminded me so much of a fallout/boderlands feel and I loved it. I get into an amazing clan who decides they are going to give the warmaster a few tries, and we kill it 5/5 times. I got a bunch of nothing from the drops, and I have opened a few t4 boxes before the recent patch and got nothing from them either. Then it happens. We do a WM the next day, and the precise chaos is given to me. No more of those days in pvp where i get smashed 2-11 3-12. Now its 8-1 9-10 7-7 because of this rocket launcher. I got the best rocket in game and again felt godlike.

But today, at 3 AM after a hard day of work, I can't sleep. So i decide to hop on defiance and I happen to have 61 keys, I claim a reward and i get 3 more keys. So now I have 64 keys and I go up to that supply box and I slowly think to myself will today be the day I get a orange weapon out of this box? Maybe I will get the jackpot weapon I've heard about and seen by a few in my clan. I click on the t4 lock box and the message says are you sure you want to buy this? I close my eyes, and click yes. First roll, Oj sniper rifle, then a blue, and a purple grenade. I said atleast I got my first orange from the box, and as I said those words, the last item that appears on the list is..... jackpot wildcat.

This game.... has given me the feels..... all the memes that are like YESSS and the fist clench and everything in that moment just came out. I haven't been this excited since I got t3 gear in rift. Wow I just wrote a story... thank you for reading if you got this far. Wish you all luck in your adventures of obtaining a jackpot in the future!:cool::cool::cool::cool:;););););)

Well first, thank you for everything. I love Trion and support the team fully. I have been with ya guys since beta days of rift, and now it looks like defiance will be added to the list of my favorite games. And to your side note, LOL that's awesome! I would love to know their reaction. Keep up the good work with this game! I am enjoying every aspect of it :)
