Joker Ticket Store Weapon Price, Permanence, and Name Changes

Recommended Posts

With today’s patch you’ll see the final implementation to our gun changes in the Joker Ticket store. As you may have noticed over the last month or so, we’ve slowly been changing the 7-day rental guns to permanent purchases. Today we’ve accelerated that and now all 88 Joker Ticket store guns are permanent items. Additionally, we’ve now removed all APB$ cost to these weapons and standardized cost across the entire line. Here’s how that works:

 

  1. Base Primary Weapon = 4,000 JT
    1. Each additional open slot = 2,000 JT increase
    2. Each additional Permanent mod = 500 JT increase
  2. Base Secondary Weapon = 3,000 JT
    1. Each additional open slot = 2,000 JT increase
    2. Each additional permanent mod = 500 JT increase

 

So you should be able to glean some immediate info from a weapon that costs 6,500 JT – You know it is a Primary Weapon with 1 open slot and 1 permanent mod.

 

Along with this you’ll notice some other changes to help everyone understand exactly what they are purchasing. Thirty of the 88 weapon names have changed so a player knows exactly what the weapon comes equipped with by just looking at the name. Here’s a breakdown of how this works:

 

  • A weapon with an open slot will have the “JT” designation with a number at the end for how many open slots is has. For instance, a weapon with JT1 is a weapon with one open slot. A weapon with JT2 has two open slots, and JT3 has three open slots.
  • A weapon with a permanent mod will have the “PR” designation with a number at the end for how many permanent mods it has. For instance, a weapon with PR1 has one permanent mod, PR2 has two permanent mods, and PR3 has three permanent mods.
  • Items can also have multiple of each of these and could look similar to this weapon – Raptor 45 ‘Hawk’ JT1 PR1 – which has one open slot and one permanent mod
    • Note: This weapon previously had the designation of Raptor 45 ‘Hawk’ JT3 and cost 10,000 JTs and 100,000 APB$. With this new name and pricing scheme you can now quickly understand what this weapon contains and what the price is (6,500 JT).

 

While we feel that the Joker Ticket store weapons are now in a good place, we’ll be looking to optimize other areas of the Joker Ticket store going forward.

I can understand number 2 in this situation, but there aren't any modifiable secondary weapons in the game. Just a typo/oversight?

Not yet, but we wanted to future-proof the pricing convention.

i haven’t had a chance to look ingame yet, does this mean that there are no longer any leases available from the joker store?

 

also i’ve been told the 3slot golden osmaw is now permanent is there any chance we can get an opgl too?

 

 

edit: also nice to meet you paladon, i haven’t seen you around yet

Agreed, the average player obtains joker tickets very slowly

 

add more ways to get them

increase how many you can get 

make it where you can sell Joker Tickets in auction and take them instead of cash

sell Joker ticket packs on Armas

 

just a few ideas

you forgot to add the rfp fang

If by add you mean remove from the game, then I agree with you, otherwise no, it's a good thing it's not on the JT store

Make it piss easy to get joker tickets and you render the armas market useless when it comes to buying guns. There needs to be a balance point

Norseman series ? and also the Frenzy ? where are those ?

 

Other than that, this is an awesome update, in my opinion this completely removes the "Pay to have fun" aspect of apb, before, free players were restricted to the free gun's playstyles, now, they have access to pretty much all armas content, in exchange of grind, which is totally fine !

 

Awsome work at LO !
