Item Database - Hellspinner Shock Cannon

Hellspinner Shock Cannon Icon #154361 This unique design from the cyborg Techleader Praetor is an anti-armor device. Creating chaotic balls of energy, it not only inflicts terrible damage, but will occasionally burn through radiation-based defenses. The Hellspinner design is superior to the Hellfury, in that burnt-out radiation armor takes longer to repair.

Sypiken @ 2004-08-25 16:36
Well, it's nice at this QL and only get's better. =P
krakowski2k5 @ 2005-05-24 06:52
Wanted to ask...i've jus been there...who exactly drops it? The augumented cyborg hellfurys near janella the bot thingy :S ? if not cud u pls help where...
bongbong @ 2005-06-03 16:57
it drops off the big borg that spawns in the room holding it, he use to be a place holder for the ninjadriod boss ( to lazy to look up name ), and he spawns anywhere from 30min to 1 hour, and has a real shitty drop rate.
oopsminded @ 2005-07-17 15:46
Just looted it, first drop. :)
kandykandy @ 2005-08-25 15:35
The mob that drops this is called Inferno and it involves countless hours of camping cz the drop-rate sucks. Location cyborg-barracks/Greater Tir County. a bit left from ToW. P.s. oopsminded go play a lottery or something.... :p
RainFrost @ 2005-10-30 15:59
The night i found a hellspinner i found 2 hellfuries as well.
The 2 months before with barrack camping were not that satisfying =)
snakoshimaru @ 2006-02-07 23:08
Just found one for a friend of mine.
Killed the boss at least a dozen times before he dropped the stuff :s
Already seen once the hellfurry although and killed the lady 20 times i guess
Msauss @ 2006-03-22 14:44
How is that barracks hard? of course anyone lvl 70ish will have trouble but a lvl 100 engie with lvl 200 bot should have no a lvl 100 fixer would have...
dogar @ 2006-04-25 03:41
it isnt hard at all, luckily theres no level cap on it,i took my 200 slayer inthere and easily cleaned the place out. camped inferno for 22 kills, didnt drop. the drop rate is REALLY bad. will go back there soon, want to get one for my froob soldier.
Xsonic @ 2006-05-29 02:40
LOL..... Hellfury on first kill... damm lucky... now trying to get hellspinner...
Xsonic @ 2006-05-30 10:45
Prototype Inferno drops it(the last room at the barracks).
Amonit @ 2006-06-25 17:43
be there since 7h...only drop:
1x 88er eye imp from Prototype Inferno
3xHellfury Assault Cannon from augmented hellfury Cyborg

who the hell has programed this nonsens...waste of time.
Gurudee @ 2006-08-01 02:31
From memory, the guy you need to whack for this is immune to certain damage types or something.
Perks work fine him, specials dont (like brawl, etc...)
Doc dot's work great :)

I logged my soldier there, camped my doc there...3 days later finally got a drop, and managed to log in my Soldier (same account) before it rotted...or some b@$t@rd came and ninja'ed it :)
bruteus @ 2006-08-10 20:04
The Drop Rate is about like playing the lottery! I wish they would make Inferno look like the guy who decided the drop rate! It would be alot more fun camping for the 0.0000000000000000000000000000000001% drop rate!
I have a soldier and have killed this guy countless times. I am not sure, but there may be some other variables involved, possibly like a CRU Mission. Full Team, ect....
I use a Bulwark Blaster to take him out because he is immune to certain damage types, like energy, projectile, and I think fire!

The Hellspinner droprate sucks! The word FUNCOM I would imagine means FUN, but in this case this is not fun. If you are going to make the drop rate that low take the stupid NODROP off, so some peeps can make some credits!

Well now you know how I feel about this!

lvindal @ 2006-08-27 02:23
I think you just said why the nodrop tag should *not* be removed.. There are lots of items in AO you can go camp for credits - why create even more camping craziness so it becomes useless trying to get one for others?

Just my opinion, but I doubt I'm the only one with the same thought...?
Feydakin @ 2006-10-26 08:29
I'll add my voice to the displeasure with the absolutely absurdly low drop rate of this weapon. I knew it was low, but it's beyond rediculous that it should be as low as it is. The only redeeming factor is the relatively fast respawn rate of the Prototype Inferno.... not that that helps much when the drop rate seems to be about 0.01% or less. I have so far personally spend three days with probably close to 150 kills, yes I've camped it that much. So far no Hellspinner, and in fact the only thing the PI has dropped in those 150 kills is 1 Augmented Cyborg Sleeve. FC needs to seriously take a look at some of these older playfields and the spawnrate and drop rates. With the expansions offering so much more than the base RK game there is no reason why anything in RK should be this difficult to obtain...
krakowski2k5 @ 2006-12-17 12:23
Perennium Blaster ql 84 full auto cycle - 5000
Hellspinner Shock Cannon ql 84 full auto cycle - 12000 ://
balkaster @ 2006-12-19 23:14
It only carries 15 rounds, I think you can get by on burst and single fire. ;P Plus, the perennium blaster does energy ac, which armor protects well against, and can only be used by soldiers. I'll go with the radiation damage and the burnout armor chance, thanks.
qwayke @ 2007-02-13 01:47
Hehe, I have my lvl 130 crat in there camping away for the fun of it, This gun would look awesome with a pair of and a set of Crat tier :D ...and yes i am an Assault rifle crat :O
Koudman @ 2007-03-22 11:46
What the heck is the droprate of this thing in percents?? Can someone tell me please?
qwayke @ 2007-04-16 02:00
The drop rate on this can be best described as:
you are as likely to get this as you are to finding out your brother is also your father.
Xira @ 2007-07-11 01:00
that must happen a lot! I found 3 in a row
jonjonz @ 2007-08-29 21:36
Low drop rates like this are just a poor excuse for a lack of content. Instead of creating a difficult but not impossible task to complete, Funcom just slaps a low drop rate on it, and pushes it out the door. Ranks right up there with using the same icon for 256 different items as lame.
Shiare @ 2007-09-26 00:29
Not sure what level you guys are that's camping for this weapon but I just had an idea....maybe your level plays a part in the drop rate. Seems like camping the place with a level 150+ toon (assuming most people camp with high level toons) would make getting the gun too easy since there are no level caps. Imagine if foreman's or totw had no level caps. Even though those weapons/items all have nodrop tags, it would make it too easy for everyone, their alt, their friends, their org and their customers to get what they want. I personally think cyborg barracks needs an overhaul (just too small for one) and also place a level cap on the place if it is revamped.
mosnami @ 2007-10-10 14:26
Common drop after 17.6 patch.
bungysma @ 2007-12-26 14:24
yeah.. real common drop now a days.. got both hellfury and hell spinner cannons.. like 4 of them in 1 instance.. took me 5 minutes.
doctorhyde @ 2008-09-10 21:58
yep, drop rate definitely increased, 50-66% chance for me when doing Bazzit's on alts.
imsobored121 @ 2008-10-17 12:49
drops real often now, and no level dosnt affect the droprate at all
all you really need to worry about is having the right damage type because of his imunity to some of them
so anyone with CoH weapons dont even bother trying to kill him unless you have some other damage type
so far ive seen energy and radiation not affect him at all
:( the two most common damage types
also this isnt too mutch better than the Steps of madness nuetron flash
except for the fullauto ofc
pyroathiest @ 2008-12-10 00:03
Yeah, the right damage type thing is a pain in the ass. I went there with a level 134 enforcer with dualed chiropteras, and I was pwning everything. Then i got to this one guy that I was doing something like 2 damage on. I could'nt understand why..I thought it might be something like Neleb's super TMS that he puts up, so I kept waiting for whatever he had to wear off...and eventually had to hightail it out of that dungeon using rage and throwing up absorbs as i went cause every damn borg in the place aggroed me....
Sferykal @ 2009-04-23 09:09
The Prototype Inferno has a 200% reflection shield against energy, radiation and fire damage, and that reflect is running all the time (see So make sure you have proper weapons handy (or can change the damage type accordingly) to bypass that reflect.

Also, the mobs in the Cyborg Barracks have massive HPs for their level. Either bring a good calmer, have a good team or get some higher level player killing the mobs for you, if you plan on getting this gun.

Hellspinner Shock Cannon
Your critical hit will be 529 points.
Your normal hits will vary between 179 and 179 points.
Over 10 seconds you would do about 1058 points of damage.
You would score 4.24 normal, and 0.18 critical hits.
The damage done by normal attacks would be 851 points and 207 points would be special attacks.

Neutrino Flash
Your critical hit will be 438 points.
Your normal hits will vary between 175 and 175 points.
Over 10 seconds you would do about 1423 points of damage.
You would score 4.65 normal, and 0.19 critical hits.
The damage done by normal attacks would be 898 points and 525 points would be special attacks.

Is it just me, or is the flash better? and i have it on since lvl 27 too >.<
imsobored121 @ 2010-10-22 08:37
yea flash is better for low levels
looks like you did the calc vs a high AC though, mobs you fight at that level generally have lowbie ACs
