So... Death machine

Recommended Posts

The death machine drop is BACK in the patch notes for the PS4. In the giant, and possibly SOE, you CAN get a death machine drop. I'm not sure if it can be spawned in with a gobble gum, or it it's just another drop to keep us from getting the perk bottles from the teleporters.

You can get it in SoE apparently, and one of the new gumballs we'll be getting is one that spawns a death machine.

Seems like it is just as common as the other Power-Ups, I think in previous maps it had a slightly lower chance of appearing but I seem to get them all now the time now.

On the giant, Have you guys gotten the death machine before turning on the power?   I seem to always get it immediately after turning the power on.

Probably just your luck. All drops can be obtained before the power is turned on.

But to be sure I'm going to keep doing no power runs today. Maybe my game is being dumb haha

So I've been trying to chart the probability of getting the death machine. Runs with power and without.

For the runs with power I always turn the power on at round 3.  The earliest I've seen a death machine is round four and the latest was round 8.

I have never had a random death machine spawn while the power is off.  Is this just my game or does anyone else have any issues with the death machine? *I usually die between 16-20 without power.

It wouldn't make sense for the drop to be acquired only after the power is turned on. You can get Perks from GobbleGum when the power is off, so I don't see why you would need to have the power on to pick up the Death Machine.

It doesn't really make sense to me either.  I'm just wondering if anyone else has ever had it drop during a no power run.  I guess I'm just trying to track all the differences with power off and on.  Should I ask this in a different place? Sorry to hijack the thread.

Not necessarily. Usually in scripts they are just precaching the drops in start of the game and then giving them different abilities/ways to get. Its just one wait line, that can change when drop can spawn. For example: For Death Machine, they have one line saying wait for power and next line is making it being able to spawn in normal way. Then in other script (Gobblegum script) it just passes the wait line and just go straight in spawning the powerup. Hopefully you get what I mean :sweat_smile: If not, I can write basic functions, that explains it bit better

No, I do understand that and it makes alot of sense. It just confuses me why they would set it to something like that if they have. I mean, is there really a need for it? In Black Ops 1 you could pick up the Death Machine on early Rounds without power. Why not now?

Harder first room challenges? Not as easy first rounds? Im going to play Giant tomorrow, so I can check it out, if Death Machine does not drop before turning on power. If it does, then its definitely bug with Dfabians version of game, lol

Played 14 rounds of Giant without power, no Death Machine powerup. So it seems DM is normally power-only powerup

Very interesting. Thanks!
