    ARMISTICE BARGAIN BOX

    The bargain box will not be available on PTS

    If you remember our very popular Black Friday Bargain Box from last year, it’s back in action but with a new name – the Armistice Bargain Box. Get tons of loot for a super low price! The Jackpot pool has been updated with new Jackpots. 2 new weapons and 2 new shields replace the previous super rare loot. The chances of getting rare gear has been increased!


    NEW WEAPON TYPES

    Sol Destroyer: Highly modified BMG. Linking technology has been removed in order to fire a concentrated particle beam. *In addition, the healing unit has been adjusted to provide damage reduction and movement speed which persists for a short time after the connection is severed.

    Apocalypse: Fires a nuclear rocket which deals massive damage over a large area in addition to burning and irradiating enemies. *Requires time in aim mode to charge the rocket's propellant.

    NEW ELITE LOCKBOX JACKPOT

    Oblivion has been replaced with the new Jackpot "Hand of God", a Mazu Blast Rifle!


    ELITE AND PREMIUM ELITE LOCKBOX

    The Elite and Premium Elite Lockbox has been overhauled. It will now drop loot more consistently across all weapon types, and has had its legendary and epic drop rates increased! The Premium Elite has been increased even further as well!

    The Armistice Elite and Premium Elite Lockboxes are back for Armistice only! These boxes will contain a possible drop for ALL of the previous Elite jackpots!

    WEAPON UPDATES
    • All BMG damage increased by 10%

    As always, thanks for testing, and keep in mind that these notes are not final and subject to change. Also I apologize for the tiny jackpots. I will try and get an updated picture that is larger.

    "Mighty fine work, mighty fine." - Cpt. Grant

    I'll be hitting the Rolling Blackout arkfalls a lot this year but I appreciate the amount of community input allowed in this Armistice. It's a step in the right direction for bridging the player-developer gap. These weapons are of a decent quality and this is the best backpack synergy I've seen to date. The special BMG and rocket launcher are a great addition; one of the big complaints is the lack of variety among weaponry and this is working to fix that. Notify us ASAP when the method for acquiring the non-bit Armistice box is finalized. I'll be planning ahead for this and all players can expect to see the Snow Nano Trio in the field all this month.

    Keep at it; I look forward to more of these projects and the 2017 spin on our events.

    You have to buy Armistice Bargain Boxes with bits from the store and hope you win the lottery. ;-)

    I think the BF shields are better then the new ones... did you see the capacity on them 27k. Is this some kind of sick joke... 3 ridiculously stupid jp and one awesome one. I'm no expert but I predict a lot less of these boxes are going to be bought.

    Are the capacities of the Mobile and Mayhem shields correct? I would think they should be 33k like most jackpot ironclad and rhinos.

    Pretty sure they are intended to be mid-cap shields. I'm just hoping the Black Friday shields get the extra plate. I will definitely be trading for one of these shields though. Not too sure on the rocket launcher though. I might trade for it as well but the shield is definitely more important.
