Update: Hey all, the RA-44 Hellcat Jackpot going to disappear from the store on July 14!

Launching off of the success of Order and Chaos, Von Bach Industries is proud to present the RA-44 Hellcat. Aptly named and recently acquired, the RA-44 Hellcat is the first Alien Guided Rocket Launcher of its kind. Reminiscent of the alien technology that made the Chimera Horn possible, this innovation is the latest jackpot weapon available from the Premium Elite Lock Box and Elite Lock Box. With the ability to lock in on targets with the right aim, this heavy hitter will have your enemies running for the hills.


http://www.trionworlds.com/defiance/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2015/06/a4vi39.png

Due to limited manufacturing facilities in the Bay Area, Von Bach Industries is restricting supply of this legendary weapon to Premium Elite Lock Boxes sold from the Defiance Store or lock box vendors throughout the Bay. The RA-44 Hellcat will only be available for a limited time, so pick up Premium Elite Lock Boxes or Elite Lock Boxes for a this chance at raising hell!

Hey there Stefb42, it certainly is! It arrived with 3.014. Here's a link to the patch notes for reference. (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?217607-Defiance-3.014-(hotfix)-Patch-Notes&p=1778207#post1778207)

If you run a pair of jackpots again they need to run for longer than what order and chaos ran for, or each weapon should get its own month. Not every server is a jam packed NA server, with players pulling jackpots non stop. just saying

Lol, people on PCNA didn't pull those non-stop and those that did refused to part with them.

Boo, now I'll never complete that synergy. My Order is worthless. You should tell the devs to release future jackpots with that synergy. That way we can mix and match loadouts with it.

I like the skin on the rocket launcher. Reminds me of my favorite Halloween jackpot skins.

I'd like clarification. The 1st sentence seems to say that the hellcat is only available from Premium elite lockboxes available through the bit store. While the second alludes to it being in regular elite lock boxes but doesn't actually say it is.

So, is this weapon available through regular elite lock boxes that you get in game with keycodes?

I'd just like to know if you've changed the availability of jackpot weapons to bit store only boxes, ty.

It's in both the Premium and Elite Lock Boxes, with a higher chance to drop from the Premium version.

It's really just the 1st sentence. Why would you say restricted to premium elite lock boxes sold in the store and through vendors.

This is not good copy

I usually pull 2 elite boxes with resources a day (for the past 8 months) and have yet to see a jackpot item. Just my bad luck i guess.

I think they nerfed the drop rate so they could put the new premium elite lock box in the store. I've gotten 2 of every jp except for the chaos and order which I recieved none.

got one yesterday from an elite box buy

problem as it with my low 1500 ego toon so now l have to pay to upgrade it as ego grows

fast reload, fast firing but seems light in doing damage, guidance system fast to lock on, rockets sometimes don't seem to hit target even though locked on to.

6 shield Evangel destruction took 3 whole magazines of 27 rockets to destroy per Evangel

can it have any other regular synergy or is it locked on cannoneer?
rolling thunder with a 4 square slot mag augmenter rig, 11ish mag if my math is right hehh.
also want to know if it is it 100% effect trigger like cataclysm?

got to say after the +regen ammo on rigs, i really love using my cataclysm and snipers in expeditions.

looking forward to locking on to those pesky grenadiers from around the corner.




well i bought 5 boxes after work.... no dice.

Looks like this weapon may finally force me to get a decent surge bolter for PvP. I've been noticing a sharp rise in GRL use on the PS3 NA Server in PvP. I used to never see them, now there's at least one person using one every match.

I would like to know if it has 100% trigger effect like "bonfire" and "incinerator" or if it only has improved trigger effect after full reload for a very short time. If the latter then I wouldn't expect to get over 250k for this garbage on PTS.

Menetekel
06-21-2015, 12:05 PM
I dont think it is 100%... it is an active nano not passive a passive buff like the incinerator. As for pricing I see it easily hitting 20 mil depending on rarity especially if drop rate is as low as on order and chaos.

06-21-2015, 12:53 PM
5 to 10 mil tops it don't have a super syn like chaos and order and are no where near as sought after

I wouldn't think of this really as much of a pvp weapon... it should however get you a nice bunch of points for sieges :D
