I got these drops today, from 64 Keycode lockboxes...

At first I thought it was some kind of glitch :eek:.

Then a clan mate mentioned that nanos had been added to weapons that were traditionally nano-less, unless they were jackpots / Perfected Weapons; types such as rocket launchers, detonators and infectors. I am uncertain about BMGs (presumably Perfected BMGs can have a nano?).

I guess I missed that information...was it mentioned in an official announcement?

If so, can someone provide the link, please? :)

Thanks in advance!

It wasn't officially announced anywhere.

I have however made a thread regarding this. At first I just thought new things were added to armistice lock boxes... but this is all Ik for sure



As you said all previous nanoless guns that aren't jackpot of perfected now have a nano. I even pulled a fire radiant solstice invader on Friday as well as a bio tele spanner. Some new things were added as well with base synergies like a vbi purgatory.

All event weapons like blast bolters purgatorys and bombardier smgs have made there way into armistence lock boxes.

I've also heard rumors that expo weapons now have nanos like nercosis. Although that's just a rumor.


The new assault rifle salvo was added



And I have yet to see one but I've heard of a new Infector that acts like a canker but explodes instead of doing damage per second... like sticky tracking bombs
I really wanna know if it's true...

Ah, thanks for the information Calamity :)

I found that thread (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?284801-New-things-in-lock-boxes) you started.

It seems like a potentially big deal, so I'm surprised they didn't make an announcement. Maybe it was something that slipped through... like when Metamorph had the purple fireflies for Heisenberg...a glimpse of things to come. Maybe converter mags will be available for these weapon types too.

critical mass doesn't, at least mine don't. So maybe not the expos weapons yet.

Yea, any of my expo weapons hasnt nanos. If non jps weap has nanos now i dont see a.reason why expo weapons dont. Please add nano to sup syn; and give that syn a twist for the better please.

I just wanna clarify that all drops now have nanos. I'm not sure on expo drops but I'm 99.99% sure that they will now have nanos.

Meaning if you were to get a expo drop it would have a nano. If they did decide to do this it would be for unique nano choices. If they had a set nano for a previously nanoless gun it would be implemented into all of the existing guns. For example if they added fire to necrosis as a set nano than all previously obtained necros would have fire. Instead they left the nanoless ones alone and proceeded to give rng a try with expo drops. So you could possibility get a syphon or electric necrosis

This also means that you can now get something like a ga electric vot mass. Or bio ga purgatory.


Hopefully this was intentional because so far I'm loving the amount of things I can now get.




Ik for a fact that you can get oj drops from event bitstore boxes and obtain something like a bio CDC mass... which would be insane


I've also noticed that the salvo rifle was added into perfected boxes at iron demon...


I wish there were official info on this. Instead I actually gotta do a little research myself and it's difficult because I don't have any god damn pg or rep .-.

Is there anything new I don't know about? Let me know please lol

Yes, it seems like nanos are being added to nearly all legendary/OJ drops...from Lockboxes / Armament boxes.

Expo drops, I don't have any recent data on. I don't get many OJs from those.
And old style expo jackpots...well they are different ball game :).
Not that common...hard to see if they are dropping with nanos in the last few days / weeks (since the recent patche[s]).
One would hope these jackpots would have specific nanos and have them retroactively applied... but that is quite a different thing in the code. The recent changes seem to only apply to legendary drops.

What is the full name for that?
Is is covered on DefianceData.com?

I have recently heard of an FRC AR that fires miniature dumb-fire rockets, like the AR equivalent of a Bombardier SMG. Is that the same thing?

Oj BMGs with nanos are dropping from 64 lock box/armament as well. Ive seen like 3 or 4 from clannies.

I think the salvo rifle is the ar bombardier. Others that I've seen drop are FRC Battle rifle, Mass lobber and Blast Hatcher.

The full name is FRC Salvo assault rifle

Mosk had made a thread on it... i could find it for you if you want

It is the at that shoots three miniature rockets in a 3 round burst tho

Thanks for further replies.

I borrowed an “FRC Salvo Rifle” today, and it was interesting to see it in practice :).

The miniature dumb fire rockets are the same as the Bombardier SMGs, but they fire in “3 round bursts”...it reminds me of the plasma burst rifles, such as Vixen. It is therefore, a bit like a hybrid between the two.

I made a short video, just to give some idea of what the weapon type is like:

If anyone can tell me if the new infector is actually a thing I'll greatly appreciate it...



I'm trying to pull a expo jackpot that normally doesn't have a nano to see if it will now

I dropped a nanoless no synergy t3 mass blaster. Does that count for this thread?

I also dropped syphon nano bmg, which I promptly gave away.

Hi,all legendary "average" drops are coming with nanos,lockboxes,bargain,expos,etc..
Radiant stuff are ok to come with nano,but frc bbs,masses and bmgs are a thing,i'd like to know if this is a glitch (probably) or intentional too

I think this is great and I hope it's not a glitch. Unfortunately the ones I got had poor rolls. I have away an electric brood lobber, but decided to let it go with other projects I'm attempting to T6. That system needs an update. Takes to much af and time to T6 gear and with this now being part of the game that had increased even more.

Thanks for all the additional posts in this thread :)

First BMG with a nano that I've seen (personally, apart from Sol Destroyer) from another 64 key lockbox:

This could be the most interesting part of the game for me at the moment, since old Py is rather elusive for me right now (been saving up PG for him).

I also dropped syphon nano bmg, which I promptly gave away.That would be an interesting combo IMHO.. a syphon BMG. That definitely counts for this thread :)

I had a friend with a electric stingray with a 50% nano rig and when I'm a arkfall nothing could move... if you think about it that's dope. Usually electric triggers in a area so with a bmg it could literally stun a large area.


I also pulled a precise fire salvo ar cn syn.


I also pulled a t5 ga syn mass lobber bio

I think this is a new weapon type also, the "VOT Mass Lobber".
It's not listed on DefianceData.com.

Description:
"Automatically fires grenades that split after a short distance and detonate on impact"

This effect is a bit like a cross between a normal lobber and a mass cannon :).

The only other mention of that exact name was here (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?284801-New-things-in-lock-boxes&p=2059199&viewfull=1#post2059199) (that I could find).

The trajectory is a little different from a standard lobber, takes a while to get used to aiming it:

After some more searching, perhaps it is the same weapon base as mentioned here:

There is a thread where the devs told every1 in a blunt way to deal with it. ie. the mass lobber shooting to the side. That's when people paid for it in a bundle! I wonder why they didn't put the daisy cutter style guided rocket launcher in the game now. I guess if you don't want to spend money in the game on unique items you can wait for it to be made available for everyone. I know I'm holding off on further purchases until i read the reviews. Ripped off on the cerberus bundle too.
