About that new Rufus weapon...

Guess I won't be able to get it at level 21 without some $$ :'(

Didn't @Shteevie or @Teeceezy say there would be plenty of time to level up an assault to 21 before the deadline to claim it?

    So if in the six days I can get it myself to 21 will it turn the weapon into 21 to start?

    @Bryan18 only if any of your assaults is lvl 21

    My friend & I both play... Can anyone tell me why when we logged in tonight he was offered Rufus's weapon for free & I was offered the 250 tokens to unlock Rufus himself? What I'm asking is will my friend be able to get the 250 tokens for free too and can I get the weapon for free too? Or is it ONLY one or the other?

    I don't have the 21 now but I May in five to six days if that's the case does it change the weapon if I don't claim it yet?

    It should be the level of your highest assault survivor at the time you claim it. So yes.

    @DLich -- I used to feel that way too, but I'm gonna pull in ~20M or so Supplies from this extended 1-minute gas event, and it only costs a couple hundred gold to "immediate-upgrade" a building, so you could speed your things along as needed and focus on Supply Runs, and easily have everything ready to get an Assault upgraded, with maybe 1000 gold, which honestly is not much. This is coming from someone who has been hoarding gold for months, so 1000 is nothing to me, but maybe you spend it differently than I do.

    I wish I could get the 250 Rufus tokens on my 2nd account... he would be very useful at that stage of the game.

    And yeah, they said there was plenty of time to upgrade. What they didn't say was that you would also need plenty of gold/money to do that...

    Maybe if it had been 14 days to claim...

    But after all this is just going to be another "toy" in the end with other assault weapons doing more damage and this being taken out for a few easy missions, so... yeah...

    I don't understand the tough damage reduction of the flamethrower compared with an assault rifle same level and rarity.
  • SteeboonSteeboon Member Posts: 680
    @Lady_Ann you were offered the Rufus tokens because your account was started after the first Rufus giveaway period. I personally don't think you have to unlock Rufus to get his new weapon. Maybe you would like to send a report to in game support, they will be able to advise you.

    Still got this. So how about that!!! This new one just took since I have like several weeks left to get the supplies needed to upgrade training grounds.

    the BBQ is also 2/3 the power of standard rare gear. Nerfs for everything exciting I guess.

    40 odd damage points less at lvl17, than a lvl16 rare!?

    It's a good job this was free! Shame it's just free scrap kit though

    > Doubt all that can be done in 6 days w/o gold.

    I'm on the same time schedule as you. It's impossible. 3 plots = 1.75 days, Council =2 days, Training Grounds = 2 days, Assault = 1 day, which puts you at about a week from now.

    And you will probably only have ~2 M supplies after your Council upgrade so you'll need to get another 10 M supplies on top of it all.

    This is about as sad as it gets
    They can't even give a rare weapon with a rare damage number

    What a joke!!! Lame is not even the word. Not sure why they would give you something you can't even use. Sub par just like Rufus. I guess if i put them together I could use them on sub par levels. Jokes on us for believing this time would be different.

    Maybe the damage is reduced since it does damage over time via fire

    I May be missing something here I've not been playing long and I'm aware you can only upgrade weapons traits but is this a joke it's not April...

    I'm level 29 and thought this would be a "GREAT" weapon given all the hype

    I only have three assault class survivors and this is useless for all of them

    Even Dufus
    When i eventually level him up
