    Actually it was the MBT horn that sold me last year...

  2. 1Tap2Tap

    Only a reminder:

    The AE weapons count for the "Exceptional" weapon directive (black camo), so if you don´t yet have 5 "easy to auraxium" exceptional weapons, it can still be useful to get the new AE versions.
  3. 1Tap2Tap

    Yeah, the horns were a nice addition, I also really like and still use them. :)

  4. Ronin Oni

    I actually am not a big fan of the noise they make, but it's literally the ONLY option for the MBT's lmao

  5. Inex

    To break it down piece by piece:

    3 Empire Themed NS-44 Comissioner AE
    Empire theme is nice, though it would have been awesome to go with super-bling Amp/Spiker/Mag instead of more NS. Commish is far and away the best selling weapon in the game though (besides maybe the PDW) so I get why it's here.

    Lasher X2 AE
    T7 Mini Chaingun AE
    NC06 Jackhammer AE
    Hoping for more than just "Golden", but an understandable presence.

    Solid Blue Camo
    Solid Red Camo
    Solid Purple Camo
    Less exciting than last year's holo armor, and will still get a 'but it lets enemies ID me correctly!' from the tryhards.

    3rd Anniversary Decal
    As expected. Sadly, no camo to pair it with. Last year's camo was fairly uninspiring so that's probably not a big deal.

    AE Nano Armor Kit
    AE Medical Applicator
    Nice to see love for items other than NS/HA weapons. :)

    Add in the boost, and it's a decent set of cosmetics for $40. I always fall on the side of bigger and crazier bling, so pulling back from last year's bundle is a bit of a disappointment.

    Here's hoping for next year we can get away from the HA weapons. Maybe get something for the ESFs and MBTs, and branch out into Carbines/ARs for the AE weapons.

    Also: Bright, sparkling, unavoidably attention getting bling for all the things.

    Just in case it isn't clear: nano armor kit is engi repair tool. Not a set of cosmetic armor.

  7. RedArmy

    tanks farting confetti wasnt what got me last year - it was the Hexedge
  8. 1Tap2Tap

    For me it was the Hard Light Armor (which I almost never use because it´s a bullet magnet :p).
  9. ColonelChingles

    Huh... nothing at all for vehicles (except the decal I suppose)?
  10. 1Tap2Tap

    Solid Blue Camo
    Solid Red Camo
    Solid Purple Camo

    Those will also surely be usable on vehicles, but other than that and the decal?

    Nope, seems not.
  11. LodeTria

    They added a horn for MBTs that play a part of your factions theme song awhile ago.
  12. ColonelChingles

    Perhaps I should have rephrased that...

    Is there anything in the bundle that is exclusive to vehicles, just as how there are a number of things exclusive to infantry?
  13. 1Tap2Tap

  14. Ronin Oni

    that was after
  15. FieldMarshall

    Doing the last gun for the exceptional directive on a Baron AE (450/1160 kills currently).
    Im tempted to just wait for the Jackhammer AE instead.
  16. AxiomInsanity87

    I'm no fallout fan and have never played it.

    So this is what i get for £35 if i bought that game

    A single player version of the survival/zombie type genre that i will eventually get bored of due to single player only and the usual way of abusing ai. If i buy the anniversary bundle i will have that for the games life span and ps2 has amazing replay value.

    I hear it has great story? well i'd rather read a book than all that. I am and always have been a multiplayer centric gamer and if i can't take everything i have done in the single player game and apply it to the ultimate challenge of beating humans then i get bored real quick. Grinding away and getting more and more op while the ai just stays the same stupid abusable crap it always is.

    I'm not trying to refute you as it is a matter of choice, i am just gassing my opinion on that.
  17. Exitus Acta Probat

    Any way we can get a preview of what this stuff looks like ie weapons, camo, decals and such?

  18. ALN_Isolator

    Screenshots should be coming SOONTM when the higher ups give the OK.
  19. Exitus Acta Probat

    Its just that if I'm going to spend real life cashy-cash on pixels, I'd like to see what I'm getting beforehand.
  20. Megalegs

    Sort of glad the heroic boost is sort of back in.
    It's lost a lot of value for me since I don't need it to keep up with the jones's on the leaderboard.
    It would be better if it was all characters, if time is an issue start the clock automatically from the first that uses it or something, we can only benefit from one at a time then.
    2 weapons is mean
    As an NC who doesn't play much heavy, a rubbish pretend shotgun with a colour scheme, that I can't use most of the time, and a pistol, that while good, is a pistol.

    I'm liking the way the (presumably) empire specific colours, pistols, and LMGs are all listed separately.
    Strange balance to the text telling us the boost is single character (and empire) underneath.
    And that we're lucky to have it.

    FOR £30!

    (ooops, I've realised how unfair I'm being. Medics will now get stripes on the shield thing and the health gun, for those that dig on cosmetics that will never be seen)
