Item Database - Dreadloch Modified Shark

Dreadloch Modified Shark Icon #264839 This is a special modification of the OFAB Shark made by the customization team at Dreadloch Weapons. Every year the various corporate weapon development teams have an unofficial competition to see who can create the most innovative modifications of their rivals' weapons. This weapon was a result of the Dreadloch team finding a way to add a super-cooling nano injector to the OFAB Shark's firing chamber while managing to keep it from giving the user frostbite. The super cooled ammunition will occasionally inject a freezing agent into the joints of the target.

Heehee switched to this from SPB, my god. imo best sol wep in-game (yes better than cowboy pistola)
Gurudee @ 2007-05-11 05:08
A very VERY lovely piece of firepower.
Totally smokes every other assault rifle in game.
Despite not having fling, I'm out damaging 220 pistol/smg sols with my 217 sol atm.

Saw a 220 Doc with one on...
Nasty. Very very nasty.
anisherl @ 2007-05-29 05:56
U saw a 220 doc with this one equiped ?, name of the doc please, i'll ask him to post a screenshot :). No way a doc will get 1801 FA to equip this :p i want to see that :p
noir1991 @ 2007-06-20 15:29
Bought lootrights on my baby sold , cant wait to get to 210 :D:D:D
mosnami @ 2007-06-22 05:22
I wonder if a doc can use this...1.8k full auto.... *gurp*
Yakobo66 @ 2007-07-04 14:38
leite no more spam of that please, they bumping the engine in the future :D
Gurudee @ 2007-07-12 14:00
Can confirm there are omni and clan docs using this.
And my understanding is that is about as hard a twink as you are ever likely to encounter :)
Gurudee @ 2007-07-12 14:04
* in terms of equipping I meant btw.
Cratpoir @ 2007-07-20 12:50
It's not possible to equip though.. unless you sploit..., or there's a LOT missing from the database.. I calculated... it would take insane numbers of stam/strength to reach that FA requirement these are the items I found that add to FA - +210 - Supple, +45 tower, +25 LE bracer, +30 leo's bracer, +20 comp buff, +5 distance guide, +30 galahad inc, (if switch 2 supple sleeves for kinetic - you get 12 more FA), 9 - Cama's Pearl, +3 smooth gold alloy ring.. that comes out to... +389 FA..tell me if I'm missing anything.. - Base max for a Trox is 847, 847+389 = 1236, it would take over 3k Stam and Strength to Reach 1801 FA if I'm not mistaken... Can anybody get 3k stam or strength? LoL I don't think so...
Cratpoir @ 2007-07-20 12:57
389 + 296 = 685 (the highest FA you can get w/ equip), with base and trickle down on 220 Atrox doc it would take over 2k Strength/Stam to get enough to get it in... so not quite as much.. but maybe it's possible :o
Threeze @ 2007-07-25 02:58
Wonder what a pvm fixer could do with this.... *thinks*
Nook1e @ 2007-08-07 13:37
It is possible to equip on 220 trox's, non soldier that is. With 17.5 even on soli (the FA will be a pita tho)
wintypes @ 2007-09-05 12:54
seen it on a lvl220 adv once
zerogates @ 2007-09-23 06:27
engie, doc, adv they all can get it on, its just a hell of a lot of work and requires towers and a 300 city. Take my word for it or not idc but just informing you that if you want this on a non solja or fixer toon its possible at 220.
anisherl @ 2007-10-04 14:59
So far i only saw this weapon equiped by an engi on rk2 named Rockdizzle. Say the name if u say u saw it equiped by a non soldier.
Donfrigo @ 2007-10-07 15:01
what's better? This or the ofab one?
grid.docult @ 2007-10-13 13:58
This. :P
Agarwaen @ 2007-10-20 00:01
Slytha 220/30 Solitus Engineer RK3 (DNW) put it on some Month ago.
Metaltech @ 2007-11-06 23:34
trox doc gets max 1650 FA
Metaltech @ 2007-11-06 23:36
Engineer really can get this on
Gurudee @ 2007-12-04 05:23
quote: what's better? This or the ofab one?

Ofab one does proj dmg, so our procs work.
This = cold dmg = no proc +dmg for j00.

The basic difference is that even with a mediocre setup, once you get this on, you have 11sec FA's and fat dmg.
For the Ofab, you need a fair bit of FA skill for 11sec FA.
FA recharge calc = (recharge time * 40)+ (full auto recharge/100) - (fa skill/25)
OFAB MK6 11sec FA = (40*1.4)+45-(2240/25) = 11.4 (2240 required)
Zinrax @ 2007-12-12 16:58
I cant find any "noob gun" posts on the other Dreadloch weapons.. why is that?
Vunts @ 2007-12-15 16:32
You can look at Gurudee's post to see why this is a noob gun.
AlphaCenta @ 2007-12-16 13:36
Mudbucket 220 atrox clan engi, and Towerblock 220 atrox clan engi, have both put it on without towers but with city.

Also I heard some peoples claim that Racsyka's doc Racsey has it on but dunno, might be an OFAB shark too, especially since the doc is 216.
Dollcet @ 2007-12-23 19:52
Docs cant equip it using normal Item/Tower/etc . It was possible with using a exploit that is now fixed , the exploit was MP using a hostile perk on you , this perk gave 15000 Stamina ...yes 15k . This gave the Exploiter a Trickledown of over 300 Points to AR und Fullauto . If you see a Doctor using a D-Noobstick call a GM.
Pung @ 2008-01-10 03:51
WTB sploit! Dmn, I never get in on the sploits. Didnt get the trader shotty on either :S
Agarwaen @ 2008-01-28 02:04
Doll tell an GM and he only would say that is your problem, cause the Perk worked correctly before they fixed it, also u can tell him all Caterwault/Ofab Shoty-Doc's and the Result would be the same!
Yakobo66 @ 2008-01-30 14:15
O.o wow at 15k stamina... would make it ALOT eaiser to get ofab armour on :p
Gurudee @ 2008-03-07 08:46
Yup, that was the sploit being used. 15k stm = a hell of a lot of trickle :)
Also a few tl5 toons with ql300 special edition gear on, although I never met any myself.
And for the fix being applied, we can thank that n00b doc that posted screenies of himself on the forums...still flagged...after getting the buff and putting one on with bugger all ranged equip to buff himself. =)

But, sploitz are bad, m'kay!

As for noob gun, I wouldnt go that far.
Even if you have a ofab mk6 and 11sec FA...there are times this gun is still a good/better option.

Kiting mobs with that -1k RS debuff is pure luvz, in Alb it's especially handy.
Also in PvP/BS...same deal. Melee profs will hate you even more :P
Agarwaen @ 2008-03-12 23:09
Everybody now can equipt this..... in social tab!!!
Now i am the first Shark NT! :p
Zinrax @ 2008-03-17 06:07
Lewl for looting this to put in social tab!
bloodwraith @ 2008-04-10 11:05
its doable without gunship too
bloodwraith @ 2008-04-10 11:05
on an engi!
Infall @ 2008-05-28 00:11
Equipped today on Infall :P 11s FA rocks!
Tarradax @ 2008-08-05 15:34
If this gun doesn't get nerfed or locked or something, we'll see all of RK using them. I've so far seen it on fixers, engis, crats... Oh, and soldiers. Haven't seen it on a doc that didn't sploit to get it on.
Agarwaen @ 2008-08-22 04:01
Crat with Shark? Show me!
kitingfool @ 2008-09-09 19:02 - My 220/24/70 Nanomage Engi's config that was used today to do a Dshark. Totalled up 2005 AR, 1804 FA. Required IBehe, ES, FG, IC, +42 Tower, +33 FA Contract, +33 AR Contract, +9 Large HQ, Composites, and a 153 Wrangle, on top of that Eq. This is not an on paper calc, but a practical one that just happened on RK2.

If a nanomage engineer can do it, so can a crat. You'll see the EOE required was quite mild. A better EOE provides a little more flexibility on the tower. (I required a QL255).
kitingfool @ 2008-09-09 19:04
The only engineer specific EQ was one Ofab pad.
Vabla2 @ 2008-09-23 00:48
Engies always looked cooler with a grenade launcher :/
rugbymen @ 2009-03-16 11:35
soli crat cant do it , i made the calc ( counting xan stuff)
Sithark @ 2009-04-06 10:16
what is the FA/Burst recycle on this baby?
Darketernal @ 2009-04-06 16:11
@ sithark =, if u can get it on specials are capped
Binarybot @ 2009-12-23 22:49
Because there are no internal recharges. For example, SPB has 2500 burst recycle and 5000 full auto recycle, that add 25 and 50 seconds onto the recharge of the special respectively. This has none, so all you have to do is overcome the 1.4 sec recharge speed (which, as posted above, is automatic if you can equip it).
Nook1e @ 2010-06-09 21:08
there are no cycles on this, it will always be 11s Fa and 8s burst if you can keep it out of OE.

It was a fun weapon to twink on in 2007 summer on my engi, ah the good days of twinking when it took a ql300 field + full contracts + all items ingame (except OT gunship). Did the recalc and since then you can add +63 more FA and 50'sh AR more with the same setup + upgrades that have been added since then.

Sadly, this is not a good choice for engis nowadays due to the insane cost of the new nanoskills + the need to have the prof deck equipped. The DD however is still quite good even in the new Xan instances, on par with pistol setups with equal gear.
