Can you believe were approaching two years on the New Frontier? Five DLC packs, 25 TV episodes, and countless updates later, were ready to celebrate Armistice once again but this time with a harrowing twist!

From March 30 to April 20 we're revisiting two years of holiday and special events all at the same time and all while you defend the bay from Mutants, 99ers, Raiders, and Dark Matter dead-set on wrecking the festive mood.

And while you're at it why dont you add all previous jackpot items to the Elite Lockbox? Now that would be a celebration.

What's the new on the weekly orange pulls?


How will the weekly rewards work?


Will it be one reward a week from ALL available festive named guns, or from a selected one?

It'd be great if we could somehow choose from which event we could pull the weekly "present" weapon from similar to CC and the SS event ( haloween and thanksgiving guns being as rare and hard to come by )

I have all the Valentine's guns and 10 of the 12 X-mas guns, it'd be nice to add a few to the haloween lineup and/or the thanksgiving lineup.

would also make the haloween nameds and turkyday nameds more attainable for the general population.

Although i doubt this is how it will work (hence the trading system) :)

i imagine 1 week haloween, 1 week turkey day, 1 week Solstice, 1 week CC may be how they may do it.

That'd be cool with me

That's what I thought.

Events only running for 3 weeks though, so there goes that logic.

As I understand it all the weapons will be crammed into the weekly jackpot present box. It would be nice if someone who watched the livestream could clarify this.

Are all of the weapons going to be mkII? Or just the hulker hell weapons?

I havent heard yet just defiant few mkII on defiance site

sometimes the new rolls are actually better (no on boomers but most shottys,ar's and infectors i find are better now)

jut damage suffers a bit sometimes but overall mag and fire rate seem to improve and reduction in recoil.

I have a new plate slicer csx clustershot with oj fire rate and fire rate mastery and 1.80blue mag roll, 18 mag with no mods and 2.4 fire rate on shotty. its a beast

heres what is said(copy pasted)

Throughout the festival you can scoop up past holiday loot and rewards plus new Mark II Crimefighter, Bloodhound, and Gangbuster weapons from Defiant Few faction contracts. (The original Defiant Few weapons are still available via their vendor’s Defiant Few Legacy Supply Crate, too!)

I'm talking about named weapons not the new roll system in general. Fuzzy said their friend got a demon hunter mkII on pts and I am asking if all previous event weapons (excluding colony courtship) will be mkII or not.

Please respond on this devs

if they took the time to create the guns for PTS I'd imagine so.

Lets see what the dev's say. :)

I think the new jackpot mkii is a coding mistake. If they made the jackpots new mkii, then no point to do event.

Wow this is exciting, i can't wait. :)
I just wish that MK-II wasn't put in the title of the holiday named weapons, it makes them seem much less special and the appeal of having a weapon with a name is pretty much gone. I am fine with the new rolls, but the name change is pretty disappointing.

I don't see where it says mkii will be in the names of the holiday weapons. It just says along with mkii def few weapons.

A couple of players have mentioned it in this thread:

Two people have said they pulled named event jackpots on the test server, both with MKII after the name... a Turkeyshot Pump MK II and a Demon Hunter MK II... was this a glitch, or meant to be?
http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?208850-MK-II-Event-Jackpots-glitch...-or-meant-to-be
So basically I am going off of what players have said, I have not seen an official mod response yet. :)

Cheers all and happy hunting

Awesome! Love the length nice and long to get all the loot! I might need to start buying slots my my alt to store 4 events worth of stuff!

Im not for adding mk2 on a named weapon though. With the different rolls on the weapons im sure we can all seperate the new and old weapons.

With some guns yes.Sad to see them go.(Dancing lady). The Heart Breaker guns had the updated roll system, but the others will be updated to MKII. A lot of those weapons only had single rolls, so updating them is going to make them much better. Think about it. My Turkey Shot MKII on PTS is better than the one I have on live. I for one can't wait to see the other ones take advantage of the new roll system. Wolfman,Duster,Feaster,Scourge with 1.12 DMG or 1.15 fire rate.......

Im pretty sure all 4 event pools are pooled together and you pull from that

Not from the event no. Elite box jackpots are only obtainable for the month they are in the elite box (that is the 64key lockbox)

Is the score system the same eg. bmg/infector to get top score. Is the RNG the same eg. one shot afk same chance of oj as top scorer.

03-27-2015, 04:33 PM
Does this mean original event jackpots will be disappearing from event lockboxes in the bit store on Monday and replaced with mk II?

If so will you be doing the 50% off event lockboxes in the bit store before the jackpots change? Like you do with expert lockboxes just before swapping the jackpot out, a last chance to bag these jackpots before they leave the game forever

Would be awesome if you did

so does it end the 19th or both you have 2 different dates posted in 2 different places

Important question:

Will the current lockbox jackpot weapons in the bit store replaced by the MK2 guns? (i.e the old piper from a sol box with the piper mk2 / duster from BHF Box with Duster MK2)
also will there be a lockbox in the bitstore with the new MK2 weapons (since we can not trade weapons)?

You CAN treade weapons. The only untradeable weapons will come from the weekly boxes. Everything else (mob drops for normal weapons, Arkfall rewards, lockboxes in the bit store) will be tradeable.
I *think* lockboxes are changed, at least the Cornucopia Supply Crate dropped Plate Slicer Weapons (http://www.defiancedata.com/weapons.php?s=Plate%20Slicer) now, but I can't say for sure.

As great as it sounds, Trion would have to have someone on hand 24/7 to deal with the HUGE lag issues this will cause. I am going to try and get more Purge weapons and mods at least. But I still expect horrendous lag.

I was only looking at the announcement title which has a different time zones written than the news.

3/30/15 - NA/EU Server Update (PC, PS3, 360) @ 10 AM PST / 6 PM GMT
Hi all,

All NA and EU Defiance servers (PC, PS3, and Xbox 360) are coming offline at 10 AM PDT 3/30/15 / 5 PM GMT 3/30/15 for a server update to 2.7: Armistice Celebration.

The estimated downtime is *** 3 hours. ***

See you all then!

Yeah, the title is correct (though GMT should say BST as it's the correct time but not the correct "timezone"). I just go off of PDT and add 8hrs (or 9hrs to get the time for my timezone)

And there will be a cry in the land of Defiance like no other uttered before or after. There will be much gnashing of teeth and wailing outside the floodgates and yet...
