I just equipped my Rico's outfit, and I got a gun with it. 6 shot revolver, based off the "Rico's Signature Gun" DLC from JC2. It also has 12 grenades for the launcher. Has ANYONE else experienced getting this? >.>
I can add video if neccessary.
P.S. I would use photo imbedding, but the forum doesn't like 1080P. On PC, by the way.
Clarifying, thats a 12-shot grenade launcher BUILT INTO THE REVOLVER. You can fire it from vehicles normally, although you can't change firing modes. This can be done outside of the vehicle, allowing you to fire a grenade launcher from a vehicle. Balanced. This also works for leaping out/off vehicles and going into slow-motion. It replaces the 50.cal gold pistol found in apartments, and never seems to spawn when you have it equipped. However, it gains ammo upon entering a safehouse regardless.
CORRECTION - I have seen it spawn in my safehouse upon entering the game - ONLY WHEN I HAVE LESS THAN 18 SPARE ROUNDS.
ADDITION - If I have 24 rounds, upon moving over the spot where the gun SHOULD spawn my gun duplicates into a 6/18 + 1/11 shot revolver on the floor, and a 1/0 + 1/0 revolver equipped. 6/18 bullets, 1/11 grenades.
Trivia - The JC2 version is 'Rico's Signature Gun', and looks almost identical. However, it has no grenade launcher - despite the model clearly containing one.
INFORMATION FROM REST OF THREAD.
i have jc2 dlc for xbox and this does not happen.
yea soon as i read your post i fired it up to look. no gun. and thats with or w/o the patch. dont know what you have thr dude. interested to see the vid tho. we may get dev input aswell.
Is this somekind of mod? Haven't seen the gun anywhere before.
iv been talking with monkeythumbs. the gun is related to something being released at a later date. they will put details out when the time comes. im afraid we cant say any more than that right now but it is in your game someho your not fibbing to us or modding anything..
It is too detailed to be a simple number swap mod. It has its own icon, own name, new model. Using number swaps you can do things like make traffic cars drivable in car games, but even then the car will have the engine of normal car and the wheels of a normal car, because a number swap can only changes models. This is too professional to be a number swap, and there is no evidence of it being a mod from an external source. Maybe someone should try if it works for them.
check out my post above. we now know its tbr dlc.
Yep, I can confirm - after 1.7 patch I too got Rico's revolver, right after putting on his outfit. Really awesome gun
i think its a hickup cos of the patch. getting it early that is. interested to see what its from when the time comes.
(All quotes can be found in the thread, if you don't believe me.)
Based off a gun from Just Cause 2. 6-shot revolver. Spawns in apartment. Attached grenade launcher. Replaces 50.cal gold pistol - when Rico's outfit is equipped. Only seen on PC - but PC is a patch ahead. Grenade launcher can be fired from within vehicles - if switched to grenade mode first.

i have jc2 dlc for xbox and this does not happen. the outfits buff is action hijack distance. no gun. i call mod.
Have you got the most recent patch? And have you tried re-equipping since then? Because my game is vanilla. I didn't even know there WERE mods, and if there was, I'd be pretty impressed. The quality of the model is just as good as Rico's outfit.
