I was surprised by it when I redeemed it too. To be clear, this SCR-PRIME doesn't come with 8 Prime omnipods, but a mix of omnipods from the variants including PRIME.


So would you be able to sell those omnipods then? That would be odd though...

Why do you want to sell omnipods? Anyway in general it seems odd to sell anything given the dismal exchange rate. If I really needed the cbills I rather play a few matches.

The thing that's strange about it is that they didn't need to swap the omnipods at all to achieve basically the same available loadout. The store version with all Prime pods already comes with 5 energy hardpoints. All they really accomplished with this version, aside from moving the RA energy hardpoints to the torsos, was removing an unused AMS hardpoint and adding an unused missile hardpoint.

And the C-Bill bonus, of course...but that doesn't depend on the pods.

Well it follows the Steam build. As to why the Steam build has non-Prime omnipods OOTB, who knows really. Perhaps it's to give the introductory player the notion of hardpoint options via the additional M hardpoint, instead of a pure laser build.

FYI for those who are curious, here's the build, from Steam itself:

I actually got the info from the Steam Pack version that I bought back when it was on sale. I haven't redeemed my Trick or Treat mech yet because I can't decide what to get. I own every one of the four mechs on offer, so it's a choice between a duplicate C-Bill mech and no new pattern (would love to be able to choose an alternative) or another empty mechbay and C-Bills I don't need.

I had a Stormcrow with a cbill boost already from the clan package from a long time ago; and while I had a hunchie SP, I didn't have a cbill boost on it (or any patterns, for that matter). So that's what I took.

Well, to avoid any doubt, the Stormcrow I redeemed is the exact same Stormcrow from the Steam Medium Perf Pack 1, as per the image I linked.

Attention to all, my final thoughts about this Event can be found at...

...for your viewing pleasure and laughs at my expense. I am NOT duplicating that large of a wall-of-text, given the way I'm feeling right now. The discussion of the "Trick Or Treat III Loot Bag Event" should have already moved over to the "Update Thread" long since by now. -_-

Guess I don't get a mech. I tried really hard, but 50 FP is just impossible unless your a non-working teenager, or something. :( Get my hopes up and then dash them. :( Maybe I should start ignoring the contests like I use to. :(

I feel your pain. I tried hard to get it done and had four matches to go at 3:45PT and a friendly got into my arty strike. Can't get match for ten minutes. Game over. Thanks PGI

PGI - thanks for another great event. I missed the second Warhorn in FP by 5 games. Ran out of time with RL stuff.

I made lots of c-bills, GXP, 3 of the new 2017 warhorns and at least 1 of all the new 2017 items and all the olds ones too.

The free loot bags for the items purchased was awesome too.

Thanks for helping me to play with some of my friends I have not seen in a while through FP. It was fun.

Oh and the free mech is awesome. I'm really liking it.
