    Is there anything special about the Hunting Bow? What's the difference to the Winter Bow?
    It's also 100% silent and the charge attack is 100% threat reduction on kill. It doesn't have the special function where you can move after attacking which the winter bow does.

    Winter Bow can give you extra-movement after shot.On the other hand, charge attacks of Hunting Bow can reduce threat. Both bows are silent and pretty cool)

    The way things are going, I doubt I'll be buying a gold bundle to acquire any of these. I'd rather see unicorn armor every day. All the legendary armor I've seen in the jokepots have had gold training gear. Absolute shite.

    @LoneWanderer360 that’s a good thing, you shouldn’t buy a gold bundle to get the weapons! If you are planning on spending real money then just buy the bundle with the weapon in, you’ll get gold and stuff with it. This event is purely for free to play players who have saved gold.

    @SparrowMerv yes, luck is multiplied to traits rather than stacks. So concuss is 60% then you times by 1.33 (15+18=33) = 79.8 chance to stun for two turn. It’s the same for all luck traits. For instance dodge. Add all your dodge together then multiply by your luck added together. 
    Yes it’s weird and not logical but that’s NG maths for you! 
    Also their are 2 other tactical assault rifles which have concuss, one has wide and charging and one has wide and piercing. 
    That's so weird! But 79.8% isn't all that bad actually, i'm glad i bought it. :smile:

    It's the only AR which has the Consussion trait and i'll equip it to Abe as soon a possible. With him i'll have 93% stun chance so it's gonna help Distance runs a whole lot easier for me and perhaps GW to. 

    I better farm those reinforce tokens now since i have 4 unique weapons to keep up. 
    This one (which I saw in Bundle Shop one time) as well as The High Tech Assault Rifle, Winter Assault Rifle, and the Decimator (which you later mentioned) all have Consussion:

    I definitely want those sexy guns! Gonna keep an eye out for them

    Awesome weapon, if you don't have it and have the gold spare do not miss out. By far the best weapon for HDaryl :smile:

    I want to but it's not worth it, this one has no special ability and the trait combination can be obtained by playing missions. Love the knife but it's not that unique :(

    Doesn't the Deadly Spike also have extra damage? And threat reduction is a special feature in addition to charging? Someone explain the advantages of the Hunting Knife over the Deadly Spike, if you have a moment

    Daryl’s knife deals more damage than the deadly spike and the deadly spike only reduce threat when using a charged attack.

    Perhaps it needs a bit more experimentation, but the added Charging would, under certain circumstances, increase the rate at which charge attacks (and hence threat reduction) would happen (albeit less, as charging chance is only 30%, compared to thread reduction 75%). The added 15% damage for Charge Attacks on the Charging trait also isn't bad, but certainly not going to apply to Daryl's drive-by attacks.
    Would anyone be willing to calculate what the benefit of the extra damage on Daryl's knife gives, when compounded with badges?

    Dary's knife does 13.1% more damage because of built-in bonus damage.

    Deadly spike ONLY does a little extra damage on a charge attack, and it does threat reduction ONLY on charge attack AND kill together!

    The occasional extra charge point on kill DOES NOT compensate for losing damage and threat reduction on regular kills.

    Daryl's knife, a no-brainer.

    If you're free to play, or have extra gold laying around , snag this knife.

    Is worth it

    I snagged the knife, which was missing in my weapon list. I had the all remaining ones being offered for gold. 

    Waiting for the warrior weapon. Let it be dragon tongue.

    Are there any reasons to get a second copy? Can it be really useful?

    Just to show the damage difference. Damage % badges will boost the damage you gain from a weapon, so whilst it's only 800 damage more on the screen it's actually a lot more (depending on the strength of your badges). Yes you can get a weapon with those exact traits from a crate, but what are the chances of that? I'm still waiting...

    The extra 1500 damage should counter the extra damage you get on a charge attack that the spike has from charging. The spike might do marginally more damage on a charge attack but how often do you use charges compared to normal prowl attacks? As the others have said you can only reduce threat with a successful kill on a charge attack, Daryl's knife has a chance on every kill. The massively increased damage, paired with destructive makes it an absolute monster of a weapon when prowling with Daryl and the fact that it has gold TR means you can very quickly get the threat counter to zero. They aren't even in the same league IMO.

    Alright, you guys have made a good point. Still trying to find a use for the Spike, or just decide to let it languish.

    I think the only use for the spike is if you can't afford Daryl's destructive knife :lol:

    Shouldn't there be a warrior weapon? If so, it's got to be the Dragon Tongue.

    @Fluxxx you forgot the warrior weapon

    No one forgot anything. It was stated in the news that it would run for 5 days.

    That being said, I think any future Call to Arms events should be a week long, one weapon per class, and then a unicorn armor on the last day. Also some items should be less than 1000 gold, I doubt anyone picked up the Zweihander at that price. Maybe 3 separate prices, 600, 800 and 1000 gold depending on the gear?

    They should run a similar event, but for armor. Seems like every legendary armor I find has gold training gear. There's no way all traits have an equal chance of showing up. It's been around 8 out of 10 having training gear. I stopped buying the legendary gear in the TG shop. If they want to force us to purchase armor, then run an event for it.

    Don't understand why they left the warrior class... I could have used the gold on assault or Hunter weapon, if i knew they were going to leave warrior out

    There's only so many special weapons in this game. With GW and CTA it's been super easy to pick them up lately, so I don't really agree 7 is needed.
