I've been trying Mandalorian Terror daily for about a week now, and no A-300 yet, BUT!
- The quest itself only ever has the choice of the two helmets or Balmorra comms, but also rewards a lockbox.
- the end boss so far has always dropped a moddable item for me.
yesterday he dropped a Moddable jedi knight belt (!) and today a mod helm.

- the Mandalorian Raiders flashpoint drops a completely different blaster.

So there's no chance at all for a direct choice from the quest, but I'm still trying in hopes of getting it from the lockbox or boss.
The biggest concern I have, is I have no idea where the info came from that the Mando-raiders heroic can drop the A-300.

As of 5/30 I've tried the Mandalorian Terror Heroic 4 times, all 4 times i've gotten the helmet all 4 times. I wish this showed up more than once, I would love to have 2 on my gunslinger.

The Champion PVP off-hand is a quite good match for those looking to pair them up:

As noted, keeping Torchy will do you no good.

The good news is that the Heroic(4) mission "The Mandalorian Terror" on Blamora has a chance to reward one of these. The bad news is that it only has a chance to reward one of these. :/ On the up side it is a daily repeatable.

Can anyone confirm if this is really a "[HEROIC 4] The Mandalorian Terror" drop?
By Remmii at 2012-01-08 11:09:49
I've done [HEROIC 4] The Mandalorian Terror twice now and received the helmet both times.

Didn't you get this from the flashpoint mandaloriam raiders instead of the heroic the mandalorian terror?

coolest blaster in the game. makes me think of Firefly :)
want a couple of these for my future gunslinger.
got one on my scoundrel around lvl 30, but i can't for the life of me remember where. i let corso keep torchy during that class quest, and i may have gotten it as a choice reward at the end. i also got torchy, only usable by Corso.
it's bind on pickup, so it's not a world drop item, as far as i can see they are always BoE. getting lockboxes around lvl 31 will do little good then, since items from them are always BoE.
it's not crafted, and since patch 1.2 has been released, i have seen no new armstech schems for blasters with this look.
it's not sold by commendations or at any vendor that i can see, so that's ruled out as well.
what's left is quest rewards, and according to the comments it's likely a random reward from heroic quests around lvl 31 or so. tried the mandalorian terror on my scoundrel, and no luck from that one.

Edit: sent a ticket. just got a pre-made response that said basically said "we won't answer questions about items like this".
game masters in WoW are just so much better when it comes to this stuff.

the coolest looking pistol in the game and there is only one:(
i found another pistol with the same icon as this called the custom m-44 blaster pistol but have yet to find it in-game any1 happen to know where it is?

Apparently this doesn't like editing of comments. I meant Torchy, not Flashy.
By VesperFrost at 2012-07-07 22:06:54
I think I got this from the Tattoine bonus series, but I'm not 100% positive.
By ScylasQwynn at 2011-12-22 17:38:35
Actually, just never mind at all. Apparently only the Corso specific version of Torchy gains this model, which is a little strange. Also, TORHead doesn't like editing and deleting comments yet.

Hmm i did this quest many time for have the A-300 but .. the reward are always the same, an orange helmet, never see anything else, so the A-300 is unique or it's me with bad luck ?

A similar sized gun for gunslingers is the B-53 bantha shrieker. That's on offhand-only blaster.

It's not a match to the A-300, but it's reasonably close and looks good with it.

By ScylasQwynn at 2011-12-22 17:34:33

If you're a Gungslinger looking to get a matching set of these (at least in model), you're going to have to be a dick to Corso and keep Flashy for yourself.

It seems that between Beta and Launch, they changed Flashy's model to match the A-300. Sadly I didn't know that at the time, or else I would have kept Flashy for myself so I could have matching blasters (as these are by far my favourite).

Hopefully we'll be given another chance to get a second, look a-like sometime in the future.
