My suitcases were full of illegal immigrants who jumped up and down on the enemy tank and broke its springs

So.. 10 tanks in one battle, or every battle?

Resurrected, and battle ready.

Ok, so I've made my 10 kills, got the Rocket Scientist award but there's no sign of any weapon in my garage view, depot, or another consumable space for it. I know others are getting it because i've seen it used in game 3 times already. What gives?

Ok, got it now. So you can only use it on the tank you won the mission on.

Tan can u explain how to use this as i too cant access this thing that others have got and i can also see it in tank inspector so it looks legit even for April fool possible prank . If its not a prank and i cant use it in time and you haven't told me how to use it i request a refund as consumer goods haven't been supplied regardless of date or implied prank etc.

i don't get it. it say default hotkey 7, and i can clearly see the thing in whatever tank i use, and i do see other players using it (with limited effect) do i have to tie the "suitcase" to some key to activate it? and how ides it work? does it just target wherever i aim at?

PROBLEM! Whatever Secret Weapon it is, i think it's broken. There's no way of knowing or exactly proper way to use the "batter", it just fires somewhere at random to whatever piss effect.

 

The worst part is that for the dumbest shittiest reason and timing, my gun stops working. I've got a replay in Karelia in my ELC AMX, and when i tried to use the "secret weapon", it seemed to work. But then my gun stops functioning. It fires, nothing. My ELC's 90mm gun starts acting like it was loaded by a cocaine-high loader, and i kept firing but nothing happens. occasionally it works, but then it stops working at the wrong possible moments as you'll see in the replay:angry:

Poor ELC guy... damn you WG!

i saw a t49 get hit and died... 

 

but there are so many things unexplained

  1. what are the trajectory/arc of the "rainbow"? can even hit enemies behind a tall building?
  2. the rainbow comes from the tank or what? if come from tank, can we use it while we are behind building?will the building block the trajectory? or must we be in the open? 
  3. damage per shot???
  4. is the damage displayed in battle result? 
  5. kills from your rainbow not counted as your own kill??
  6. cant use it when my mods are on. have to remove everything just to try it. and i couldnt even see if i hit anything or not.

You have to get 10 kills to be able to have used this.  That, is a problem I expect is what would have given you the issue.

I actually got 3 suitcases with 3 cases in them ie 9 total in teh night but each time i pressed the 7 key and got into arty view i had the red icon right on the enemy and fired and went back to normal view and zoomed out to see any rainbow effect but didn't see any rainbow affect like i saw on YouTube with QB or others so i conclude its another scam from wg. It was a nice idea though. They should actually have something like this in the game for good ie 1 suitcase to use once so better make it work. Seriously from all the nerfs they are doing it may make the game more interesting and save some people from leaving this game to others that aren't worth mentioning. :)
