  • Lightning Rod, like SWAT-Camo, is only obtainable by opening a Silver box upon finishing a match on Battleship (Permanent variant). However, upon its release in CF Vietnam, Lightning Rod (Permanent) was mistakenly put into a droppable Silver Box, replacing M1216 Perfect Silver (3d) - as a result, it's way too easy to obtain this weapon permanently by playing Battleship map. This was quietly fixed the next day following an unscheduled maintenance, but everyone who already won it still get to keep their prize.
