    The Jetpack Update
    The title should be enough to get you JC players hyped. Jetpacks are back from the dead! :eek: Use them to escape a tough situation or just to navigate the rough terrain! It negates fall damage, so jump from above and surprise your enemies! The jetpack is available in the weapon shop under the Melee & Utility section for 20,000 credits. Fuel cells are available in the ammunition shop.

    The jetpack's usage is based on its usage in Star Wars: Battlefront, where it is meant for getting a small height advantage or charging into/out of a fight. It is not meant for long distance travel.​

    Note that this is an alpha release of the jetpack and it is highly subject to change.

    New Gun!
    This new gun, the A280CFE, is a modification of the beloved A280C. Also based on the A280CFE from Battlefront, this gun is a burst fire targeting rifle meant for long distances. It shoots 3 rounds per burst and has the ammo capacity for 3 bursts. It sports higher damage than the DLT-19X, but requires multiple shots to hit in order to attain that damage.

    There were many more gun changes which I will list in the spoiler below because so much was done. I recommend checking it out.

    The first two guns were completely redone, so instead of listing changes, I will list their current stats.

    E-11
    - Low fire rate
    - High damage
    - Only non-targeting rifle that can headshot
    - High accuracy

    DC-15A
    - Higher fire rate
    - Same damage
    - Cannot headshot
    - Slightly lower accuracy
    - Higher clip size

    The following guns were simply changed, not redone.

    A280C
    - Higher damage reduction as shots fly
    - Damage decreased barely

    RT-97C
    - Higher damage reduction as shots fly

    Relby & T-21B
    - Base damage decreased
    - Damage now increases as shots fly

    DC-15(S)
    - Gun name changed from DC-15 to DC-15S to match Star Wars canon

    L-S1 (TIE Blaster)
    - Less rounds per clip
    - Lower fire rate
    - Higher damage

    Bowcaster
    - Higher damage
    - Higher damage reduction as shots fly

    MPL-57GL
    - Lower explosion damage multiplier (This was changed last week but I'm listing it now)

    T-21
    - Damage decreased barely
    - Clip size reduced from 12 to 10

    Pulse Cannon
    - Lower damage reduction as shot flies

    All DC-15 Guns
    - Find out for yourself :rolleyes:

    I will be working on buffing more underused guns soon. I'd love some suggestions on what to buff and how to do it, so feel free to reply to this thread with feedback or message me on discord at BryceBAM#9647 :)

    New Sounds!
    Among the new gun reload sounds for heavy and light guns, you will find that many guns have had their sounds changed. All sounds changed are meant to be accurate to their sounds in Star Wars canon. Test around with some guns and see what's new ;)

    New Lore!
    All guns, melee weapons, as well as the jetpack now have a description in their lore. The description explains their usage, and for guns, it may give you tips about their effective range, fire rate, damage, etc. This is intended to help new players who would have a hard time choosing a gun without such descriptions. It is also more accurate than the previously used gun stats in the lore. Three examples of new lore will be shown in the spoiler below.

    On an important side note, I think it would be appropriate to address something here since this post comes so soon after they left. As many of you know, @Sairento LuX, the person who made all of the JC and SG:RL weapons, left the staff team recently. You may also know that I am now taking over their position as Crackshot dev (gun makey person). I'm glad to be picking up where they left off. They worked for the server for many years and put in a lot of work, which we should all appreciate. I wouldn't know how to do this if I didn't have Sairento's work to refer to. Thank you Sairento, and we all hope you succeed at what you do next with your life.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy this update. We worked hard to bring it to you and are happy to have it done at last. As always, we would love to know your feedback on all changes. You can leave your feedback here or directly message me or @Valcom on Discord with your opinions :)

    Thank you to @PigDaddy! for the jetpack concept!

    I can msg you how but I'll let you find out yourself :p but another thing tho. This also *heavily* nerf vehicles at the same time because skilled players can use the jetpack in *a way* that can "chase" vehicles :p

    It's the old 2d jetpack model. The black and blue one. When sam finally gets around to it, we will upgrade to the 3d version of the same jetpack.

    @R3W8 Bruh I've been muted since September. But people may think that @BryceBAM isnt the best staff. But honestly he's good at his job people shouldn't give him crap about his work. @Valcom and @FrostedBlizzard I didn't forget about you guys you 2 are great staff no one gives u 2 crap. (Idk why I'm posting this so don't ask)
