Who hates their revvy?

I hate my revvy. I'm tired of crappy quality from vl. My brothers clear revvy just died one day. I've cleaned the eyes, tried different batteries. The wiring is fine from what i can tell......it's just dead.

My smoke revvy has had it's lid broken 2x now. The 2nd time it was just in my backpack that i keep my gear in. I got home and unpack discovering that sometime during the ride in the trunk the lid must have broken off.

Not only that, but u know the threading around the screws? I'm having parts of this break off or become very weak. Same w/ my bros.

Basically......lamesauce. And i'm going to stay away from revvys if i can help it.

oh i'm not arguing about how useful they are. They work great, i've no complaints there. My problem is my revvy will end up falling apart on me while i'm playing, or on the trip back home. And broken gear is totally worthless.

I had a revvy for a month...well, my cousin was letting me barrow it because my egg broke and pretty much the same thing happened to his revvy. The lid snapped on me during a game, I tried to open the lid to put in a pod and it just popped off.

I've had about 2 revvy lids shot off while in the game (they were up while I was reloading) which was muy ghey... But never had any of the other problems you talked about.

I've probably used my Revvy at the field...15-20 times.

Only thing I've done is get a new lid. ($3).

Maybe you just suck?

TSA frontmen and back mean and stuff are just overpiced revvies and HALO Bs cost 120 dollars more. And some of us are happy with just aiming instead of waisting paint (and happy with all the extra cash left in our pockets)

Revvys own! I keep my old revvy in my gear bag for a backup. I have never had a problem with it except the lid breaking off, but that is an easy fix

Put a gravity loader lid on there, they are more flexilble.

truth, at the rate you can get a used halo for these days, everyone with an electro/half fast gun should have one
