I finally got it

  • Playing since day 1 - 13.15:02:21 multiplayer playtime - SR138And I finally got my first Phaeton.

Seriously though, why are they so rare?

V-tol, it’s more precise and deadly since it can hover.

And it looks pretty sweet.

True, but no-one should have to put this amount of time into the game just to receive a single Phaeton.

RNG is the cause unfortunately. :confused:

I have one and I might as well not have any, since I am afraid to use it because there is a snowballs chance in hell I will get another one.
Got to keep at least one for the collection percentage!

at sr 148 I have maybe received 5 phaeton helios. I got plenty of normal ones though

No Phaeton Helios for me yet, unfortunately. I did hijack one once.

I think they made phaeton’s harder to get after the update. I’ve spent over 200K since the update and have gotten 3 phaetons, 2 regular 1 Helios. Plus it’s pretty BS that you can get uncommon reqs in gold packs, it should be rare-legendary only. And I don’t know who’s genius idea it was to add certifications, but they are completely pointless once you have them all. When you have them all, you’re literally in the same position you would be in if you had no certifications.

I currently have 7 Phaeton Helios’s and 13 or 14 regular Phaetons. I don’t use them that often, but it’s not the rarest thing in the world for me to get one in a pack, especially once you get everything unlocked and can buy a gold after almost every game.

I have opened gold packs to only get rares and below. It’s basically a silver pack.

Carbines seem ultra rare for me. I get one in maybe 20-25 silvers.

Get your carbines in bronze packs, I get 3 a pack sometimes. Bronze packs are good for carbines, speed boosts and scout hogs for firefight.

I’m 146 and I’d say I’ve had atleast 15, which still isn’t alot considering the game time it takes to get to the mid-high 140s.

I have had one phaeton in my time playing. The only other time was when I hijacked one and no one bothered to shoot me down.

however I am only 20, so that’s not saying much. but I’ve still spent way too much money on req packs.

Alongside Prophets’ Bane, I got my Phaeton Helios as my last unlock around SR 124, if I recall.
