Black Market weapon Tierlist

Hello guys,
I'm not here to make a Tierlist of the black market weaponry, but ask you and give your opinions, because I'm not familiar with traits, bonus traits and etc. I'm trying to make a good use of my gold.
What do you think are the best weapons to buy and worst?
What weapons are worth buying?
Thank you very much, in advance!  :)

    I'll star with what you CAN'T buy for gold (as of July 2021). These items you can only get in GW shops or buy for cash:
    • Morning star
    • Crescent edge
    • Spiked kingdom shield
    • Winter harpoon gun (silent)
    • The Decimator (with "lucky" perk)
    • Bayonet musket (with "tactical" perk)
    • Winter bow with (with "crippling" perk)

    As to what you SHOULD buy is not a simple question. It depends on how you like to play and how far in the game you are. I'd suggest NOT to carry a lot of luggage as it will become impossible to keep upgrading all "needful" things.

    Weapons I bought on the black market and use a lot: 
    • Festive Shotgun
    • Winter flare gun
    • Winter bow (piercing)
    • The Decimator (piercing) 
    • Morgan's staff (tactical) / Winter hockey stick (tactical)
    • Dragon's tongue (it might be replaced with a better weapon soon)
    • Kingdom spear (tactical)

    I see Black Market weapons as more of a novelty than super useful weapons. I buy em for the skins, not for the traits/special functions. But the traits on most weapons are good enough to use. They're like weapons that would've been godly in the og days of just survivors and such, but nowadays most BM weapons are average

    For these who do not have festive shotgun they are precious 😉

    Since it didn't appear in the Update notes, I must ask @Lexia :Will Mercer's Black Market Trades finally appear in this update? And the New Carol? It would be interesting to have The Lucky Decimator and Lucky Cripple Flaming Crossbow

    So, I didn't create a weapons list for 750 gold, for reasons that it's just unusual for people to buy a regular weapon instead of a special weapon. And I keep thinking that I don't need to make another table for that. But i could make one

    While you're at it, can you make Carol's BM weapon the "Lucky Cripple Flaming Exploding Boss-Rifle of Doom"? That's how she took down Terminus after first learning she could live in the world on her own.

    It was one of the few weapons I never bought, so didn't mind snatching it up for 750g

    I'll stick it over the mantel in the RV back in camp.

    Out of those weapons from the Black Market does the The Flaming Crossbow Pistol guaranteed to set walkers on fire? :/
    Or is it 45% or 50%.....

    @Dazzler It's exactly 45% and it's not affected by Lucky, since it's a *Special Functionality".

    I was also surprised to see the cripple winter bow, but never seen it in mine.
    Maybe photoshop happened 😄

    @ionica @Novell The Lucky Crippling Bow is, like, 1/12 of appearing on Yumiko's Black Market. I don't understand why there is this inconsistency of there being some Black Markets with more slots than others, but anyway... Faith that at some point it appears

    Where is this percentage coming from?

    @Lexia can you confirm if the cripple winter bow is present in yumiko's bm shop? Or any other heros' shop?

    Thanks

    I play 2 accounts. On one account, the crippling winter bow has appeared at least 3 times in the black market and I’ve purchased 2. On my second account, it has yet to appear despite me refreshing it with ads constantly. It’s a bit frustrating why it has to be designed like this. 

    RNG used on events that takes seconds or minutes is OK but RNG used on an event that takes days or weeks to occur has the potential to frustrate players.

    It may have to do with the rarity of the survivor hero and their shop?

    Generally, RNG is easier to implement than deterministic algorithms. However, the use of RNG should be judicious and appropriate for the scenario. Rarity may be a factor here and maybe the drop rate should be increased but if something is possible to obtain in the BM, anything longer than 1 month is too long to wait (and that’s being pretty patient). Gamers will get bored & frustrated for lack of progress and divert their attention to other offerings.
