View Full Version : Weapon types that have never had a jackpot in an event

Ok so I'm curious what weapon types have yet to be represented as an event jackpot.

Off the top of my head:

Rebound lobber
Rebounder cannon
FRC Heavy Assault Carbine
FRC Sub-Carbine
VBI TACC Assault Rifle

I know there is more. I'm going to write up a full list tonight and I'll see what I can come up with.

I figured with us having events every single month we should have a jackpot of every single weapon type. Brs are great but there are so many out there let's just work on some odd ball stuff for a bit.

Could you imagine the state of the game with all the broken different variants we'd have.

If they kept to a one off jackpot then fine but don't trickle it down.

Sounds right I'll have to double check tomorrow. Had a bunch of bs come up tonight. Didn't even get to play anything.

What do you mean? I am entirely confused by that.

I'm talking about event jackpots only. The halter is a vendor jp and the dominator is an expo jp.

Nope sorry that's a sentry rifle. Which is essentially a vbi variant of the FRC Heavy Assault Carbine. Try again Jade...

Which the fact that, that new weapon was an event jp before the FRC Heavy is complete BS, but whatever.

Those BMGs weren't Event Jackpots.

So no decent AR in the next event. Hope they make up for it with a nice Rad clustershot or Bio ground pounder.

Yeah. But do we even need BMGs?

-Rolls eyes- everyone's dislike of burst weapons is quite funny. It's like their dislike of mazus. Most haven't even used them for a period of time.

Yes. All weapon types should have an event jackpot at least once imo not just the super popular ones.

Burst fire weapons are terrible due to their firing style. They're too forced.
When I played DUST, I loved using burst fire weapons but this game just ruins the use of Burst fire weapons due to the terrible mechanisms that they have.

Although these have been pervious Jp's id like to see a surge bolter and mass cannon in the next event

I have used them and I do not like them. I also do not like Wolverines, FRC Sub-Carbines, or FRC Heavy Assault Carbines either. I find them difficult to get any kind of rhythm with and find my self out of sync when I'm required to shoot while constantly moving. In most games I don't have an issue with burst-fire weapons but the ones in this game make me feel out of sorts.

I personally love the burst fire ar's and SMG's in this game and most other shooters. Weather you like them or not is irrelevant. The point is they haven't been event jackpots and they all deserve to have their moment on stage.

surge bolter
Any BMG

We also had a JP surge bolter called the Gamma bolter and we also have a jp incinerator i think called Autum's Scrounge.

The OP specifically mentioned event jackpots and the Gamma was from a bit store only synergy. The Scourge is a weird hybrid that always struck me as cross between a Grenade Launcher that fired sticky bio grenades but it may have been based on the Incinerator. But it does bio and not fire damage so it doesn't really qualify.

I'd love to see frc heavy with an event syn that includes at least 10% lifesteal. & make sure plenty of 3burst mags are droppin.

VBI TACC - needs to be buffed to be at least as accurate as vbi assault, and needs a lot of help in the DPS department. It's card fire rate is nowhere near its actual fire rate. & by actual fire rate, I mean across a mag - not a single burst.

I'd love to see all these guns get to be a jp. But I'm even more happy when they make new guns all together lol
The FoP event made me happy with all those new bug guns lol

how about a nanoless jp?

Maybe a syphon or rad BMG? Also like the idea of a bio GP Det. Another one would be a syphon nano and fire nano infector.

Also the VBI TACC Autopistol does not have a JP version. And although buffed relatively recently, still needs a little more to compete with the Wolfhound.

EDIT: Buff is needed mostly because card Rate of Fire is not actual Rate of Fire (~60% of card).

BTW, didn't we just have an event fairly recently that was filled with guns nobody wanted?

My opinion is that there are a too many weapons and quite a few of them either have enough overlap that they are redundant or are just terrible concepts to begin with. The herd needs to be thinned before buffs are even considered.

Yeah the Surge Blaster is a Horrible weapon no amount of buffs could make it useful, without it being stupidly overpowered or plain useless

hey they are in the game why not?. or they can just remove them and all converters from the game.

They are in the game to dilute the weapon pool. I have stated numerous times in the past that if nano-less weapons were a truly viable option then there would be a converter to make it possible to remove nano's from weapons.
