Item Database - Dreadloch Balanced Freedom Arms

Dreadloch Balanced Freedom Arms Icon #264788 This pistol was a personal project of Roland Maskle, one of the project managers of the Dreadloch Weapons division, and was created by combining the technology of the new OFAB pistol lines with the balance and load of his old favourite, Freedom Arm pistols. He also installed a nanite injection chamber that adds charged nanites to the firing rounds. These nanites are programmed to hinder the healing abilities of the target when they trigger. The problem was that he used company funds to run the development project. Therefore he had to take precautions so that only Bureaucrats like himself could activate the DNA encoded trigger lock. To untrained eyes the weapon would appear just like any other pistol.

Good god... not the crats too...
Xira @ 2007-03-26 16:10
Advys should get something like this
toe @ 2007-03-29 16:11
So you think crats should use pointy sticks instead of decent weapons?
Zuquly @ 2007-04-07 02:34
This is not a good gun in BS! If FC intend to make crat better in pvp they should either give it more min dmg or crit dmg. Combined with onehander and Carlos it might work, otherwice its bad in PvP.
CraziiBlade @ 2007-04-12 03:53 there a reason it has a burst recycle?
Javawarrior @ 2007-04-19 13:55
Not really mabye fc planned on giving it burst but didnt or it might be upgradable with burst in a later patch

Uh. Yeah. Cause crats are so underpowered in BS PvP.

Note: I wrote this while be chain stunned on the BS, again, by a couple of crats.
Note2: OK, I didn't, but I could have. You get the point.

this can be equipped at level 150, can even be non-oe selfbuffed with the new global research and a ransacking tower ql 150+

anyone giving away loads of supple-bots for free? :p
Ciekafsky @ 2007-10-06 11:05
To equip that @ 150 you'll need ql 500 ai armor or blackmane stat buffer.
donger @ 2007-10-16 14:24
No you wont... 1.7k weapon skill is not that hard at 150

Uhm, please post me a setup where u would reach 1.7k weapon skill at 150.
Doesn't have to be a crat even, just any prof to reach that in any weapon.
eversio @ 2007-11-07 17:14
1.7k would be hard at 150 unless your a trader :P
Easily doable at 165 I would think.
Threeze @ 2007-11-18 08:18
I've known this for a while but never really figured out what use it has: If you plop this gun in tradeskill window as Target, it says it's involved in 1 tradeskill process...

Someone figure it out please =p
Jerakah @ 2007-11-18 08:19
anybody got set u for this at 150?
Courtdog @ 2007-12-21 12:49
This gun + cdr is a crats best friend w/projectile saba's
Dilomax @ 2008-01-11 20:53
lol if i can get a ql275 ofab rifle on my 170 agent i can show you a setup where 1700 is easy at 150...
Liquor @ 2008-01-16 00:00
ql 300 Ofab Rifle would be possible on a lvl 170 agent =)
Soulevil @ 2008-03-27 21:40
k... i have this gun on my 215 crat (finally >.<) and tbh its quite good in pvm and not bad in pvp considering as a 215 crat with most of my perks in XP lines i get alpha's all the time anyways,. the only thing that pisses me off is the MR requirement. I calced it over many times and to get two of them on even at 220 would be a feat not many could accomplish.

Azzy @ 2008-04-22 21:23
Soulevil 1500 mr is nothing. Very easy to make. The problem is not mr. The problem is that u will not have burst special. So better use it with peregrine mk6.
Zinrax @ 2008-07-27 19:16
umm yeah put an upgrade for this pistol in say new DB cave giving it burst.. why do engi's get all the lub :p
farlath @ 2008-09-19 04:37
I think 1 good item in 2 years is hardly "engies getting all the lub"
Ofab @ 2008-10-16 04:41
Well, a 150 doc equipped Doc's Left Hand of Hope (1701 Pistol 851 Fling).
Kilawatt @ 2009-03-25 23:11
Org mate had this on her s10 150 crat..but she is a bit uber with her twinks
Haela @ 2009-04-20 02:47
I try to get it on on my 150 Crat but it's a little hard :). If someone have a equip for get it on post plz, it would be nice :)
Nook1e @ 2010-08-26 17:20

Not a crat, but engineers have less pistol skill at that level, the setup is for equiping an amep at 150. With that setup, i didnt even need a tower spot, just a lowbie pistol contract. Crat ofab gloves give a *lot* more pistol however. .

Keeping it out of OE at 150 for a crat is a lot lot harder than for an engineer. So the question is. Is a 75% freedom arms better than a high ql mk6 + 199 type1?
atacrossroad @ 2010-09-08 06:28 not completely sure about it but i think it should work
lillfjanten @ 2012-06-29 11:03
I had this on my crat at 150 100% w/o Hud3 item, needed some twinking but it's possible ;)
Evenhb @ 2021-04-07 23:07

dropped of force recon commander 191 in clondyke. aprox cords, 1100 x 2700
