    How do you get a Red Lantern Henchman Uplink?

    Appears to be a random drop in all on-duty content. From Mepps:
    New Henchmen Uplink Device: Lantern Corps!


    During this year's Winter event, three new Henchmen Uplink Devices inspired by the Green Lantern Corps, Red Lantern Corps, and Sinestro Corps will have a chance to drop from ANY On Duty mission boss in the game. Who can say humbug to Lantern henchmen?

    You can get the box off of any On Duty boss in the game. When you open the box, you get to choose between green, yellow, or red. This is for the duration of the winter event.

    Now that we have a super wide variety of henchmen trinkets, could they actually be made more useful?

    Does this mean violet lanterns as well for Valentine’s Day?

    Having Violet and Blue Lantern as henchman for Valentine's day seasonal would suit me just fine.

    What's wrong?

    You have something against meat shields that do practically no damage who tend to get in the way when you want to quickly maneuver around during a boss fight? :eek:

    Ran like 6 duos with sub bosses and bosses and ran another half a dozen solos with the same and an Alert. Not a single one of these dropped. Are they just stupidly rare or bugged or bad luck?

    Ah sell-able on the broker huh?

    I'm having the same issue, drop rate seems to be incredibly low... this on top of the boss glitch that seems to be happening pretty frequently is getting irritating. There's already a topic on it in the bug report section but some bosses randomly glitch out and appear above the ceiling in game and the fight just stops.

    The drop rate is low - this is a chase item. The opportunities for the drop are very high, though, since it's the whole game.

    Apparently some ran 100 missions..... and no Henchmen. SO they seem to be fairly rare.

    I expect them to be as rare as the Creepy Critters which I ended up buying on the Broker.

    So I expect to buy them from the Broker as well.

    Already bought the Green Lantern ones. :)

    Got them but sold them instantly since its a random drop item for everyone, just wait 1week and you will see its in broker for 10m or a bit higher they gonna be worthless.

    I got one so far, but to be honest I'm mainly doing bounties still, not much queue up besides the seasonal (where it dropped). Planning to do some farming this next week.

    Shame I can't downvote that. You all don't seem to have a setting between "stupidly rare" and "omg my inventory is crying for relief".

    Guess I got lucky, because I got a set day one in the Seasonal instance!

    Ive probably run 50 maybe more instances over 2 days and got zero drops....

    Mine also dropped on the first day running the seasonal on one of my toons.

    I'm hoping I'll be able to get 3 of them before it's done.
