I opened a few packs to see if I could get the Bantha, no luck. The guy right next to me was who started opening packs about the same time, got a Bantha after only 2 packs. Such are the ways of the RNG.

For those of you trying to get a Bantha from a pack, may the RNG be with you.
Its not just about the bantha. In my guild we collectively opened over 150 packs. Not a single person got a single weapon. There are 6 weapons in the pack? In fact I have asked in fleet all day and not a single person responded that they got a weapon.

I am wondering if they are even in there...

Yeah I saw your posts on Dulfy. I popped the reply that I'd gotten 1 weapon (a double bladed sabre) out of 3 hypercrates. The junk filler on these packs seems to be upped.
Ever feel as clumsy as you are stupid? Keep coming out of lightspeed too close to a system? See your nearest Imperial Optometrist for a free eye test. It may just save your life.

I got a lightsaber. But weapon drops are always rather rare, since they share their drop rate with the armor drops. I bought quite a lot of packs since I started playing again and weapons, before mounts, were amongst the rarest things I got.

In two hypercrate, I got the Bantha, the new Desler, all the new dancing emotes and the new regen and a ton of different types of armors in particular the underwater ones and i got the new ship pet from the gsf. Oh and I got the god ugly Yellow/pink dye twice. So as usual it is luck of the draw...............

However!!! I did not get a single weapon drop and I asked around on the server I am on and others who bought hypercrates including one guy who bought 5 hypercrates did not get a single weapon drop. Perhaps it is bugged as also the Major/Minor Experience boost for some reason comes with a bind timer so it means they cannot be stacked but all the other types of xp buffs (PVP, Explore, GSF) etc have no such timer.

Logged a ticket about both the timer and weapon drop issue. Will see what Bioware's much vaunted.............yeah ok I can't outright lie, the joke that is Customer Service have to say and whether the template response will be suitable to the issue.

Make the desirable item drop rate an absolutely minute chance + more rubbish filler per pack = more packs sold = more profit.

Annoying yes, but they are out to make money so I don't blame them. I would expect the upcoming Rancor mount to also be ridiculously hard to get.
Or just do what I don't buy the packs let other people waste money, buy the stuff off GTN

They don't make money out of that, when people stop buing that shhht. In the long term they lose money.
