Notes: The information is given to the best of my knowledge, and up to date as of 4/30/2008. I have played the game over 3 years off and on, so some info from more early on may not be 100% correct.
The info about these avatars applies to the GIS/GBWC (Softnyx) service, up until July 2006. Info after that date is based on the ijji Gunbound service, unless otherwise noted.
A few Interesting facts:
During the gunbound thor's hammer time, for a short period of time, there we people called GM helpers. These people performed various tasks for the GMs and in return were given "rare" avatars as a reward.
During late 2005 and early 2006 timeframe, many VIP class users were allowed to trade their extra event avatars for "rare" avatars, this was later cut back on.
In 2006 GIS service started the NYX zone for only people who have charged cash in the last month, and there would be frequent events to play with GMs and have chances to win "rare" avatars.
Throughout Gunbound history, many of the more uncommon "rare" avatars were aquired by people who are friends of the GMs.
Also from my memory, in late gunbound thor's hammer days the fansite GBGL, that was sponsored by a GM, hosted a small event with a few "rare" avatar prizes.
In more recent times, many of the avatars considered "rare" and uncommon long ago, are now very common among players today, Due mostly to the fact that most recent events have been centered around selling these avatars for cash.
Formerly available avatars ~ There have been many cases that an avatar is put into the shop for sale, and then taken out shortly afterwards. These were never announced as events or limited sales. Exact reasoning is unknown, but some guess it is because the avatars closely resemble copyrighted material. Click here to see a list of them.
If you have an questions, comments, corrections, or other info that I don't have, please send me an email, or visit my contact page. I will be happy to give credit.
Last but not least, this list does not include every "rare"/event avatar, some I do not have pictures of them saved anymore, and none of these avatars can be gifted, so please do not ask.
Notice: Dear Gunbound Community, Thank you to everyone who has linked to this part of my site from other forums, etc. This page gets quite a few visits thanks to you ^^
I try my best to maintain a simple and informative page, even though I no longer play Gunbound very often. I have just updated/corrected some of the pages with info and added stats to some of the avatars that have them. Also be sure not to miss the Formerly available avatars right above this, there are more avatars there ^^
Also for anyone who does not like this page, please gtfo.
I have just went through and added info from Softnyx's Guerrilla Events on Gunbound World Champion, as well as the similar Play with the GMs Events for ijji's Gunbound Revolution. I have only listed info for the ones that contained a limitless "rare" avatar prize. If I have missed anything, please let me know.
By Request I have started to add a counter on each page showing how many times an avatar item(s) has been used. This will be a lengthy process to complete since this part of my site is nearing 160 pages not including the removed avatars section. So I will have to update each page as well as add up all the times an avatar has been used from the info I have plus my memory.
