Both Kruber Executioner Red Illusions still drop? Missing one

Hello Fatshark,

I’ve been opening Legendary and Champion Emp chests with Kruber for a few months now and I’ve gotten the same “Carroburg Honour-Blade RED illusion” for the exec sword 3 times. Does the “Von Mecklenburgs Revenge RED illusion” still drop? It’s the only one I’m missing. Game suggestion: alternate duplicate red item illusions?

RNGesus is just screwing you over, it does still drop.
Similar to how it took forever for me to get red dual daggers or sword & shield when I’ve gotten nearly all other reds.

Ah, ya Saltspire’s RED crossbow illusion took me a few weeks to get. I got so excited when I saw another Kruber red exec sword, thinking it was the 2nd one… NoOoOoo… :cry:

just be patient. It took me since release until couple days ago that i received the Loethlans Woebringer Skin for Kerry!! The last Illusion i was missing in the Game… XD

What i did, i played with other classes aswell and opened chests with kerry until i got it

Hello Roibr,

Yes, I open all chests with Kruber even if I got them with other characters.

Can any gamers confirm this still drops ?


Can confirm. I got one maybe a month or two ago.

I have almost 2000 hours in this game (I think), most of which were spent on Legend / Cata. I must have opened hundreds if not more than a thousand vaults. I’m still missing two illusions. There are people with way more hours and vaults than me who are missing more. The chance that you get a red item is pretty good, but because there is no dupe protection or weighted chance the chance that you get a specific red item out of all possible weapon illusions and jewelry is really bloody bad. I could open a thousand more high level vaults, and the odds that I still won’t get those two illusions is very, very realistic. It’s just basic random distribution calculation. The horrible RNG is simply a significant flaw in the loot system in this game. The weapon still drops, you probably aren’t even super unlucky in a mathematical sense, but we’re all just unlucky that this is the loot system in this game.

Ah yes. I did get 2 other red EXEC swords but they didn’t have the on Mecklenburgs Revenge illusion. I’m just wanting to confirm someone else has gotten it recently. Anyone ? :slight_smile:

It does still drop. I have both of them.


I’m still waiting on his 2h hammer illusion, Crusher, for like 3 years now so I do feel your pain.

Bad RNG unfortunately. It tooke me 2k hours to get the red halberd illusion for Kruber, which I wanted to have since release of the game. Sadly unlike vermintide 1, red drops dont have dupe protection in any way.

Duplicate protection would be nice , I know the hats are duping and taking inventory room =p

I got the Carroburg Honour-Blade yesterday, but I don’t have the other one. That being said, I’m missing lots of reds so I might not be the best one to know.

I hate that illusion for the exec sword… I mean, what’s it suppose to be? I see a blue line right down the middle with no decoration. The artist think “simple but cool” or they just ran out of ideas? :roll_eyes:


Finally dropped. It took 5 months of farming to get this skin .

The RNG is ridiculous. The last red illusion i needed was a 1h hammer skin. I opened every vault as Bardin and got 128 duplicates of stuff I already had before it finally dropped. 2.3K hours to get all red illusions. I hope the darktide isn’t so horrendously grindy.


That’s pretty good, I needed 2.8k hours to get all reds. :rofl:

I have like 4k hours and still missing 4 illusions, I remember my self opening something close to 450 vaults just to get 1 red flamestorm staff. Rng is quite bad.
