We haven't seen these weapons for ages since a lot of us have leveled up. Hopefully if there is enough interest NG might re release them.

    Where is the option for No?

    If NG removed the cap maybe, but until then. all Purchased weapons will become absolete

    Apologies I forgot the no option and I can't go back and add it. So 'no' comments will have to do in this one sorry. I'm more hoping to see them back for their special abilities.

    Thanks for your input :smile:

    I think NG should rework the dixie land stuff so that it is inline with incendiary. e.g. that it also works without charging.

    Remember to use your charge abilities

    Why get anything from shop when we don't know when the upgrade is ?
    If NG decide us to level up weapon and survivors next week it's a waste.
    NG should let us know when next upgrade for survivor and weapon is !
    After what I understand is a tomato week this weekend again so upgrade is close I think

    A little while ago NG offered the pitchfork in the store at rare for TG's. I already purchased the legendary kingdom spear so didn't have much need for it. Despite being rare, it was a nice gesture from NG.

    What's the chances we could get something similar for Rufus' weapons? Even at rare I would pay TG's so I don't have too much reliance on hunters in the distance @Kaz

    YEEESSS!
    A million times, yes. I’d buy them for every level. IMO the reckonin’ is the “funnest “ weapon in NML. It’s brilliantly designed and was incendiary before incendiary was a thing. I’m pretty sure my love for Rufus was because of the reckonin.

    I lost my Reckonin(s) to auto-scrap and now Rufus can't scratch and sniff anymore. Poor guy.

    Not that I'd buy them for real money - as long as there is a level cap on weapons I won't spend money on them - but I'd love to see them in the TG shop again.

    NG brought back the Pitchfork which was awesome. Maybe they can bring back Reckonin (and BBQ), too? @Kaz

    I would of course love epic but green would be fine, too - anything to help my man Rufus check his health again. :p

    I had this offer on January 4th 2018



    Canadian $

    I only wanted the reckonin at the time so I didn't buy. I like it's unique attack pattern along with the fun factor. I only have the rare one.

    I have the blue Dixie, but haven't used much. I always thought it would be better if it didn't attract walkers seeing how it makes that nice whooshing sound. The silent aspect would help offset the loss of the stun ability for me. And I'm not talking about changing one of its traits to silencer, because that trait is useless with it's ridiculously low percentages.

    Or somehow increase the incendiary part, as @JackBauer mentioned. Give it a chance to ignite on regular shots (like the existing hunter trait), then have the charged attack at 100% ignition. But again, have it built into the weapon. Don't just take away an existing trait to add incendiary. It's a flamethrower after all.

    And btw, this goes for the crossbow too. Built in 100% silence, then replace it's silencer trait with any other one (well, not large caliber). Make it truly unique, instead of a regular rifle with silencer and a different picture.

    Making these weapons a bit more unique would increase sales, imo, much like the spear and staff

    Apologies for veering off topic

    Special weapons are great, I'd love to get that option. Even the lower, TG version would be good.

    Where is the option for No?

    Agreed on Special Abilities - I briefly enjoyed using them, i genuinely can't remember how i lost them though - At the risk of a throat punch, it was probably at the same time i realized Rufus does not work for me - I've since learn that's more my play style more than anything else - Some hero's work for some, some for others.

    I still use Morgans staff, It does the job up to a certain level,and is handy on the distance on a charged Bruiser, but I've not got the rest of the special kit either, I miss the pitchfork, extra range was handy on that one

    Well, Reckonin had unique ability before it was "fixed". Both work great in the Distance, but so does lvl 4 incendiary rifle. TG versions would be enough for fun factor.

    Sorry
    I have been in the sun all morning long, so I may be lacking better judgement

    I wouldn't buy shit from this game until they start giving good bundles again these new bundles are a crock of shit. More money and you get half of what you got last month.
    You ask for these weapons and they will make it a 79.99 bundle

    Yeah, we can certainly do that! Actually, we had an epic Dixie BBQ in the TGS already maybe 6 months ago, so it's no problem to do it again! Thanks for the feedback.

    And if you felt that an upcoming Council Upgrade is stopping you from shopping weapons, feel free to either wait for it to happen to buy a weapon right away or keep with the resource-only bundles.

    Thanks for the suggestion, guys! But one question, since it seems that players are kinda divided on this specific matter... would players that don't want it back would suggest something else instead? So then we could put two bundles at the same time and then it's up to the players to decide whether they want it or not.

    My answer to the poll is: no.

    @Kaz

    I remember a bundle whith 2700 gold and 15 phones for about 14-15 brit pounds, that was a good offer and I haven't seen it in a year or so.

    Also the bundle with the 3 meele weapons:
    Morgan's staff, Pitchfork and 3rd one I forgot which one was that. I missed out on that1 and would like to see it again.

    @kaz I did buy the recent rare pitchfork in TGS but lost it due to automatic scrapping by game. So i missed buying the Legendary pitchfork bundle

    I would buy Legendary Kingdom Spear or Legendary Pitchfork straight away in bundle. I think the risk here is if you only want one weapon, spending approx $35 bucks on a bundle of 3 might go un bought.. Same with Dixie BBQ and Reckonin but really want both in Legendary. I think the risk here is if you only want one weapon, spending approx $35 bucks on a bundle of 3 might go unbought

    I also scrap any weapon / vest epic and under and have never upgraded them.

    Can you look at suggesting to NG @Kaz to have an upgrade path of at least weapons. Like how pink stars were introduced to survivors to allow weapons / vest level ups, even if it was just a few levels past original. Something possibly like a new item called weapons tokens like how we have specific tokens for shooter, hunter etc to upgrade. Once you find, scavenge save shooter, bruiser weapon tokens in crates or daily rewards to what ever value set, you go up a level in that weapon and hopefully same for vests (would be great).

    I think this would help a lot with the frustration with the comments here on weapons cap as it does take a lot of XP to do so and when you scrap them you don't get to reclaim XP spent.

    Is that last SS from what you have in store atm or are you taking SS of different bundles when they appear?

    How about just the weapons without any tokens gold or what not.

    My thought there is that NG probably would not consider this it if there is no financial incentive for them to recover the development costs of adding this in. With tokens we play more (keeps us in game), need more gas (maybe sell more 24 hour) and earn them or buy weapons tokens in TGS and gives us something else to work to on upgrading (if you choose).

    Similar to pink stars, I originally thought that was a rort, but now I get it. If you want to be able to go above your RSL and take on higher level zombies in distance or challenge, outpost you need pink star survivors. Yes the costs are high on tokens but so is the reward and honestly the satisfaction that you have done all the work on getting them there. If things are too easy we generally don't appreciate them and have no satisfaction on accomplishment.
