This was the 2009 Christmas present, when used all charges it won't be destroyed but it says "no charges left"
Also needed for the achievement (H)
make sure you achieve this achievement before using the charges for fun, as there is no know way to recharge it!
Too bad no Feats of Strength achievement linked with it.
"An official Red Rider Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!" is possibly a reference to the 1983 movie "A Christmas Story".
You'll shoot your eye out!
No 'possibly' about that one,
exactly as described
from the film. It was also
a real toy sold around the 40s
Here's another for you; (Mostly) harmlesss is a reference to Douglas Adams'
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series
, which celebrated its 30 year anniversary late 2009.
I absolutely love this gift. Personally, I get no satisfaction out of one-shotting newbies. So chasing them around with this gun and doing little to no damage brings me great joy. Great companion when you're running around Azeroth, trying to get your
World Explorer Achievement
Hey little lowbie paladins... Hope you kept this. Sure, it's just a BB, but starting a pull with 2-9 damage beats starting a pull with 2-9 extra mobs you wouldn't have gotten if you could have pulled from range.
(Basing this on my own experience with a paladin and having nothing until I got linken's boomerang, But i suppose it's possibly Blizz snuck in a ranged pull for lowbies while I wasn't looking. >.>)
I wish it didn't gave charges. Seriously they could get rid of the damage, but please I wish blizzard would make this one last forever.....
I was doing this solo on my Orc rogue today.
I started with Exodar. I flew into Zoram Strand and ran to Auberdine from there. Jumped on the Exodar boat and few guards attacked me. I just vanished because I didn't want to take the time. =P I ran down through the back side of Exodar and just stealthed when I got to the guards. The guards here are lvl 75 and sappable. As I was getting to Velen, I sapped the first guard up the stairs on the right, who was 80 elite and sappable still. My first shot stunned me and my second shot hit him. I sprinted away and Vanished. That doesn't work because these guys don't stop with Vanish. I had to kill several guards on my way out, but after I did I started heading for Darnassus.
Same deal here: Jump on boat, Vanish, wait, stealth through city to queen. The guards outside the city are also lvl 75 and sappable (Note for rogues: The pink glow entrance thing does not break stealth). The guards right near Tyrande aren't so bad, being only lvl 75, but if you don't get the first shot off, they will keep attacking you even after Vanish when she runs back. I used Evasion, shot her again, sprinted out, and Vanished again (Preparation).
Next, I went to Stormwind. The guards here are lvl 40 and 65 mostly and can be sapped. The guards in the actual keep, however, are lvl 80 elites with over 25k hp. When you go to shoot the king, do not go into one of the back rooms if you plan on stealthing back out. The 75th lvl guards that attack you when you shoot him keep respawning and keep you in combat (not allowing you to Vanish either). If you do die, like I did, you're going to have to run to your corpse all the way from the eastern most side of Elwynn Forest, Eastvale Logging Camp.
Last is Ironforge. The entrance to Deeprun Tram will knock you out of stealth, but the Deeprun Tram is also not considered part of a city, so you can unflag here. As you enter Ironforge, don't forget to shoot High Tinker Mekkatorque as I almost did - he is for the achievement. Rather than wasting Vanish, you could shoot him and run back to the Deeprun Tram if you liked. Something I liked about Ironforge is that the guards are set very far apart and you could just brute force your way through. The guards here are lvl 75. I missed 3 times on Bronzebeard, so I died, but the mage that is in the room with him will also keeping blasting you after vanish. The corpse run to Ironforge is not too bad; you only have to run from Kharanos. If your vanish doesn't work again, just run back to Deeprun Tram and hearth.
include a compass in the stock.
The Red Ryder BB gun was available beginning in 1938 and for many years afterward (and indeed, still is), but never in the exact configuration mentioned in the film. The Daisy "Buck Jones" model did have a compass and a sundial in the stock, but these features were not included in the Red Ryder model. The compass and sundial were placed on Ralphie's BB gun but on the opposite side of the stock due to Peter Billingsley (Ralphie) being left-handed.
Could be useful if you want to kill people that just lost a Duel.
You gotta love the fact that it's
. I hope the reference is intended.
So... I don't have this item in my bank, I haven't done the achievement back in 2009.
I can't find it under the tree in IF. Am I screwed?
I just shot Slyvanas with my gun from last year and its didnt count towards the achieve.
Edit : Having read more into it apparently you can
. Make sure that your shot counted!
So.. today i open gifts.. and didnt find Red Rider Air Rifle in.. So i cant recive achievement at all?
No Rifle this year. The gift gave me a Zeppellin
Made a ticket so the will hotfix this. Hope you all do the same so the get some pressure to fix this ;)
I didn't receive the gun this year from Faster Christmas.
Can someon confirm if this achievement can no longer be completed if you created a character after Winter Veil 2009 please.
Does anyone know what the actual range of the Rifle is? Ergo how far away from a target you can stand (or rez, in the case of suicide-runs into enemy cities) and still shoot at them?
Can anyone confirm credit for achieve by being in a group with someone else who shoots the "Kings"?
You can now buy the gun + ammo from Jepetto Joybuzz(No idea when this actually went in, just found out now when checking his stock on a whim).
Edit: Listed in the January 5th hotfixes now.
Seems I cant manage to shoot my new Rifle! Yes I'm shooting at an enemy! Is this made to be able to shoot only during Winter Veil?
I can confirm that you can progress in this achievement now that this gun is available, even if Winter Veil isn't happening--I just shot Tyrande Whisperwind and got credit for it. Remember that it may take a few shots to hit the leaders since the gun can backfire on you.
Edit: Just got the full achievement.
Now it is available in toy's shop in Dalaran.
Sry Dalaran Squirrel, but you are a prime target.
Have in mind that you cannot fire the gun if you are close to your target. I got the 'Your target is too close' message a few times when I tried to use it on Muradin, because I think it would be smart to ressurect right next to him so it would take longer for the guards to hit me - but that will not work!
I am not sure of any exact range but just make sure you have a good bit of distance to your target so that does not happen.
Can now be brought in Stormwind Via a gnome (Craggle wobbletop) walking around with a toy cart. I saw him walking around the outside of trade district.
He also has ammo refills and all the other toys from dal.
I have a problem with this... Every time I try to do this gun on one of my horde buddies it says invalid target.
I tried doing it on a chicken.. Didn't work either.
What should I do.. it always says "invalid target"
Proud owner of the 2009 Vintage Winter Veil gift, the Red Rider Air Rifle. - New FoS in 4.3, better get yours from the vendor while you can.
This is gonna be a Feast of Strength in 4.3, so don't delete it...like I did a few days ago... -.-
Here is my plan for the 4.3 FOS achievment for having obtained the Red rider air rifle from 2009, and being one of the few to vendor/delete it from their bank.
First of all, I did delete it, shouldnt have but ohh well, after writing a ticket requesting it back and with no luck, I have decided to do this.
If I dont get the FOS acheivment when 4.3 hits I'll write another ticket saying that I have already earned the achievment BB King and list the date that I got it. It will prove that I earned the achievment before the rifle was available from the vendor. Hopefully they will grant me the FOS based on a techinacially.
This item is sold by
in the toy store in
. He sells this along with other vanity items. It seems the only way for non-hunters to fire a gun and personally I like that :D What's more is that
only 2g and he sells refills !
Deleted it way back when, still got the feat of strength on 11/29/11.
I can confirm this works to get the
Really having a hard time getting the correct range. The target is either too far, or quickly runs at me and gets too close before I can get a shot in. Multiple corpse runs ... :op
Has anyone been blinded because of this yet?
Hunters, you can shoot this item while you have deterrence active. Makes shooting the leaders for the related Winter Veil achievement, BB King, much easier if you are going at it solo.
There is a ingame bug or something with the red rider air rifle. I tried messaging blizzard to get help and all they could tell me, is to look it up on here. Which there isn't very much info about the bug. I purchased it and some how after I had equipped and unequipped it, it disappeared. I didn't sell, or delete the item.. It was just gone. I tried searching in my bags, bank, and void storage (which i never use) but hey, its worth the shot! Still no luck, all the slots in bags were not highlighted. I retyped the name over and over again even using only one word at times, to see if it might show up. Even skimming each slot slowly didn't help. I then clicked the cleanup bags button by mistake, and there was the "red rider air rifle" to the top left in my bag. It seems once you put the item in your bag after using it, it doesn't show up in the bags, but it's definitely still there. I'm hoping this will help anyone else resolve the same issue if it occurs to them.
I'm surprised no one else has said this yet, but you no longer need to have
Red Rider Air Rifle Ammo
on you in order to fire the rifle.
I know only because I just tried it out by targeting a hostile mob (some random wolf or bear outside Ironforge) and it fired. Looks like it now has charges built in instead of ammo. This was probably done because of the item being converted to a toy for the Toy Box in 6.0.
Just bought the

that shot stuns ya for a few secs

Red Ryder Air Rifle
is great for pulling low HP targets. You purchase it from a toy
in many places. Some things to note:
It does 0-1 damage and might
shoot your eye out
When it fires, one of 5 things will happen:
Miss the target, but get their attention. This generates no threat and doesn't appear in the combat log. This generates no threat.
Hit the target for 0 damage and get their attention. This generates no threat.
Hit the target for 0 damage and
them. This generates no threat.
Hit the target for 1 damage and
them. This generates threat and is the shot required for the
that say "Pelt"
Backfire instead of shooting, causing a stun effect (
Right in the eye!
) on you which is actually a buff - so you can just right click it off.
Continuing to shoot a target will keep it engaged, preventing it from resetting while you drag it wherever you'd like. The ammo is limited to 200, but the
Red Ryder Ammo Pouch
replenishes it back to 200 and can be purchased from the same
The ammo pouch is unique so you can't hold more than one at a time.
You can however leave a bunch of them in your mailbox or guild bank as with all unique items (I have them in my guild bank and use
This macro will cancel the
for you before shooting, so you can just shoot again when it backfires.
