It's intentional, it's a new choice on the loot tab for a 0 cost "thanks for believing in Fortnite" reward. It's limited time, but probably not less than 24 hours limited.

Out of the 15 llamas I got 2 rare rocket launchers, and out of a founder's llama (with founderbux from the 15) I got another one... did they just add explosive weapons to the droptable or something?

I've only barely started playing this (like 1 hour) so don't take my word as an indicator that you should definitely buy it. But so far it's fun and campy and the loot system is intriguing, it's better than I expected after reading initial impressions.

Same, I think? The F2P stuff is a little off-putting, but it hasn't hampered me, either.

That said, I'm only playing a couple hours a day, so I'm taking a casual approach. The folks who poopsocked the whole game in less than a day are probably having a very different experience.

These are the people developers want to snare with the F2P model. That's why all these convoluted systems exist. You get a few people deeply invested and then try to extract a bunch of money from them.

For everyone else, a dripfeed of premium currency more or less gets the job done. In theory.

15 Llamas, 0 legendaries and about 3-4 rares I would of been upset had I spent 15 bucks on this, many F2P games have some currency that you get out of boxes that stacks up that you can use to buy things if RNG is not your friend, they could use that here.

Had 3 of my 15 go silver, none went gold. Got a handful of epics including a second epic sniper defender, an epic sniper rifle, and a couple rare sniper rifles.

Is there a cap on founder's coins that I'm missing? I got at least 400 founders coin drops out of the 15 free llamas but I was only able to afford one founders pack when I was finished opening them all.

You get 10 per upgrade llama. That larger number in the corner is the total you have on hand. You get 150 total from the believer bundle.

Oh, that makes sense. I just assumed that you were getting what was on the card since that's the way most of the cards work, isn't it?

The bottom of the Founderbux card tells you how much you have total, the top of the card usually has a small +10 on it showing what you gained.

It definitely confused me at first as well when I saw a giant 30 on the bottom of my card, but I only got 10 coins.

That lead me to finding this

https://www.reddit.com/r/FORTnITE/c...lamas_and_luck/

Total Golden Llamas: 52 which works out to about 5% of my llamas being upgraded.
Total Legendary+ items gained: 87 which works out to be around 1% of my items being legendary. These percentages feel low, but maybe there'll be more data on this in the future.

910 Upgrade Llamas
Legendary Heroes: 1



Better save up that 1000 vbucks to buy guaranteed legendary llamas or it's very likely for you 1 in 20 goldens to give you a survivor.

You've generally got it right. You get 90% of your spent xp back when recycling things, but you also don't gain anything when just leveling something you're not going to use either.

Things get a little more complicated when you unlock the ability to transform things. I haven't done much of that yet, so I don't know how it changes the value of things. Maybe someone who's a higher level will provide some insight.

You also may not want to recycle/transform all your blues/greens of the weapons you like either though, since they're cheaper to craft and they're good to use on lower missions. And even a green may end up being straight up better sometimes until you unlock higher tiers of evolution if the rolls are much better than your epics/legendaries (+10% damage and +10% damage vs a bunch of other garbage).

Transforming things also gives you schematic/survivor/whatever xp at the same rate of recycling or retiring, but at the cost of research (500 for a rare) or the people resource (140?). One time use transform recipes seem to take drops of rain and I assume higher evolve mats later on. So it's up to you if getting a new random rare is worth losing 5 hours or so of research progress.

There are nodes in the tier 2 research tree that let you narrow down the results to an assault rifle/axe/whatever, and some that let you transform heroes, but I haven't unlocked those yet so I don't know what they cost.

For what it's worth I still trash all my greys, the cost of getting it up to a rare that is probably another dupe just isn't worth it. I tend to hang on to greens a bit longer just in case.

No one responded to my previous post maybe because they didn't see it or because no one else knows but I am still really curious as to what happened to bloc party mission mode.

Also, couple of thoughts for the easy cash grab option:

1. allow you to have cosmetic textures for wood, stone and steel
2. spray paint tags
3. More reasons to establish a personal base and either compete against others or co-opetively compete against them in a race to win (destroy x zombies first, have a bigger fort for longer etc....)

The core game is compelling and well done enough that they can build off it in a lot of very interesting ways. Here's hoping they do just that.

Also for those of you with epics, I roll with some upgraded epics and they do the job just as well as my legendary shotgun for the most part.

Oh man. Thank you for mentioning this. I had noticed that you could slowly transform your way up to rares (so you can salvage for training manuals, weapon designs, and trap designs) but thought you had to pay the experience. Knowing that you get the experience is really helpful.

EDIT: This is seriously huge if you're not planning to spend additional money. Knowing that training manuals (in particular) don't require a huge amount of extra grinding to accumulate means I'm no longer waiting on an epic/legendary hero before I start evolving what I have.

Anyone notice some guns, shotguns specifically, being bugged and giving their bonus stats before the level thresholds? My two shotguns seem to have all of their bonus stats applied to them already, it shows the higher crit values on the gun, whereas it doesn't do that for my rifles until I level them up.

The simplest maze you can build is just a simple tunnel from your objetive to where the enemy will spawn. Useful on places where the enemy can spawn only in one direction.

The "Carwash" design. A single tunnel full of traps.

https://twitter.com/Teiman/status/891025220169019392

For most missions, you can build a wall around the objetive, then 1 tile wide floor with a chest high walls, and a overflow ceiling with traps. This is what people do on 99% of all missions, and work very well. No need to go fancy.

A heroes llama would be more interesting. But a good legendary weapon can be a nice upgrade and who know when the heroe llama will show. My most important item in the game is a legendary shotgun (and I hate shotguns, but I just have to use this one because oneshot most poo poo) .
