Similar to the M4A1 VIP, this gun has increased statistics and firepower, making it superior compared to the original Thompson and all other Black Market variants.
The Thompson Infernal Dragon has various effects, that affects both the owner and other players in the same room. These effects are similar to the RPK Infernal Dragon as well:
- 150% EXP bonus for the owner (200% for NA)
- 30% EXP bonus for everybody in the same room.
- 20% GPs bonus for everybody in the same room.
- 50% Points bonus in ZA Mode for the owner.
- 20% Points bonus in ZA Mode for everybody.
- 20% boost for Fever System.
- Additional 7 rounds for every SMG owned.
- CF North America: 200% EXP bonus for the owner.
- CF Europe: 150% EXP bonus for the owner, cheaper than the RPK-Infernal Dragon. (has been changed in later patches, used to be 200%)
- Thompson-ID has the third lowest EXP Bonus comparing to all other VVIP weapons, followed by Kukri Beast and then M4A1-S Jewelry . Probably this has been done to comprehense its additional bonuses in ZM.
- Even with upgraded ammo capacity, the Thompson-ID cannot surpass the Thompson Gold (77 vs. 80). The reason is only a few CF versions have the Thompson Gold with an 80-round magazine.
- In CF NA and EU, the Thompson Infernal Dragon gives 200% bonus EXP to the user. This is probably done to compensate the low damage and ammo capacity compared to the RPK-Infernal Dragon.
- Upon release in CF Vietnam, Thompson-ID only adds 2 rounds to all SMG players owned instead of 7. This is persumably a glitch, but because there were no official explanation, many players went mad and refused to buy this gun after sale off season has expired. For a while, the community has been looking down on Thompson-ID a lot since this gun has less EXP bonus and ammo bonus was cut short. GM -Shirunai- spent months trying to demand a fix, and while he got a lot of pressure on himself, 1149 patch finally addressed this problem, bringing Thompson-ID back to its place.
- Unless all other versions, the Thompson-ID is cheaper than the RPK-ID in CF Europe and features the most bonuses. CF China and all other servers have the same price for both Thompson-ID and RPK-ID. However, pre-order and day-1 sales can still be applied by publishers.
- During the pre sale in CF EUrope it was promoted to have the Unexpected Luck bonus. After the release, this has been changed to the Fever System.
