Hi,

a lot of clases can buy an offhand for 50 black hole coms. Generator, Focus and Shields..... all the offhands which are not modifiable. Vibroknifes for a Sniper is just a stat-holder. No Sniper uses the knife because you must stand in melee range.

Where is i.e. this item?
Black Hole Targeter's MK-1 Vibroknife ; Added in Patch 1.2 ; 50 Black Hole Commendations

I worte a Ticket and i got this answer (in a short way)......" sorry we cannot tell you why there is no vibroknife for black hols coms.....we cannot give you a spoiler because that kills the gameplay...."

In a lot of different Databases MK-1 Vibroknifes exist, so have they been forgotten in 1.2 ???

Another bump, these are still not in game! Please add the MK-1 Vibroknives (and variants for heals, DPS and snipers). I'm running out of things to buy with my black hole comms!

No shotgun because you can swap barrels from OH to MH I am guessing, and no VK because agent mirrors smuggler.

Shotguns don't have barrels (or any other modification). They are exactly the same as vibroknifes.

Even if you could swap out the barrel, couldn't they code it, for it is tied to your Off-hand only; similar to the armourings being tied to the type of gear they were pulled out of?

Shotguns are the same like vibroknifes.
imperial agent = vibroknife
republic smuggler heal = shotgun

yes i think the point is that is use a vibroknife just as a stat-holder, for me itīs wayne that the knife has 200-350 (for example) melee dmg. i donīt use it as a sniper ^^
but an imp agent melee use it a lot, and i think that is the point.
btw the versions of MK-1 doesnt drop in denova, just MK-2 /MK-3 /MK-4 and Campagne Token.

So what i want is a vibroknife for 50 black hole comms as a stat holder for my sniper, like MK-1 shield generator or focus.
one night i talked via chat with the support and we will tell this to a special agent in the house....we will see...

No!
Even for an operative it's just a stat stick. I have no idea why BW put a damage range or the "only used by special attacks"-note on vibroknifes and shotguns.
In fact it does the same as a generator or a focus: it adds tech/force power. You can actually use shiv and backstab without a vibroknife equiped.
