Been playing since launch, pre-ordered both the game and the DLC with all those bonuses. Not playing everyday anymore but still regularly. Ego rating is about 1600. I still haven't gotten a single orange item, be it from random drops or crates. Anyone else still yet to get any orange items? Most of the time i'm buying tier 3 crates.

This game's drop rate is a way to harsh. Too much efforts to get lockbox will result mostly in getting nothing. Honestly i think the level of grind in Defiance is a way above regular player's patience.
Keep in mind that the first orange you are finaly get might have poor stats aswell or least used weapon like some rocket launcher.

I'm exactly the same. Playing since launch ego 1750 odd again don't have enough time to play everyday but have done a lot and never seen an orange. So don't worry your not alone. Maybe the next next crate I open but have been saying that for a few months now.

I've never "Found" an Orange weapon in a lock box since launch.... I have bought and been gifted a few though.

I am about the same. 3400 ego now, my last orange was at about 1200. All my keys go to tier 4 boxes.

Under 1200 it seemed that I would get an orange every 3rd or 4th tier 3 or tier 4 box...but those days are long gone.

About EGO 1700 and only got 1 crappy Infector a LONG time ago (the weapon's EGO is like 200) and it's ROF is like 1 shot every 3 seconds. lol

I didn't get my first orange til I was over 2,000 ego. (swarm cannon)
Got my second at 2,500 (vot blaster)
Got my third at 3,000 (incinerator)

Now if the stat system was actually set up so these legendaries were actually legendary I might be a bit more pissed off but since 9/10 oranges are pure crap, I'll stick with purples that are actually useful.

This is the reason I'm really not that bothered. It would be nice to find one but I have a feeling it's just gonna be fairly rubbish. And if not it woild probably take a fairly long time to find all the right mods. Spose just gives me that extra reason to keep on playing.

Yes!

I hate the fact some players would like them to be purchasable in vendors, that itself would defeat the purpose of 'legendary', may as well scrap them and make them purples!

2200 on orange, i buy about 2 tier 3's per day.

now with the fact that there are going to be less major arkfalls, its going to be harder to get the key codes. the cynical side of me wonders if the ppl who get all the orange items are buying with bits and not resources.

the whole thing with having less major arkfalls feels like a money grab to me.

07-01-2013, 05:32 PM
Definite cash grab. It's a chore to break down salvage for key codes and the fact that key codes are pretty much non existent makes it worse. Why not use scrip to buy boxes/keycodes/even for salvage for mods and loot boxes?

My buddy is over 3000 ego has bought countless tier 3/4 boxes even spending money for boxes and nothing. 4 tier 4 boxes and nothing higher than blue. His 7 year old plays on another account level 200 or so and picks up an orange assault rifle at an ark fall

4000 on one character and 1167 on another and not a single legendary for both.

I've gotten a couple but only from boxes (can oranges even drop in the world?) and they have all sucked, example being I finally get that orange bolt action I've been hoping for... but wait it has run & gun synergy, because yeah that's just what every good sniper wants improved accuracy while running.....

Aeothena
07-02-2013, 04:29 AM
Well, today some have 50-250+ oranges in inventory and others have not even seen one. So, I think the drops are too random to say at least. As we all know, that even if you get a weapon (Legendary, Epic or less) it's crap 8 out of 10 still. Wrong nano, empty slots that are too costly to add and mods you never find a match for.

The 2 oranges I got was through T3 boxes the bonus loot weekend. Also a crappy Infector and a cluster nade...

I want another weapon and a shield just to be able to strike the thing of the list to do.... I would probably never use them.

SCHTAKO... im on 2100 and havent seen a orange weapon and i bought alot boxes fom tier 3 and 4... and awsome one of my friends bought the game and got 2 orange on level 300...

This thread is depressing. ;)
The orange drop rate (even the purple drops) needs to be unborked. Killing, new content and LOOT are important to keeping people playing

i just hit ego 2515 last night and i have played almost 250hrs and i have had 3 orange weapons and all those were before ego 1200 and all within 3wk, i have almost given up on lock boxes the last 50 i have opened i have got nothing but crap mostly green and blue,but its just luck,ya just gotta keep earning those keys and salvage.

Nearly ego 4k bro....and I got 3 oranges in the first week at early ego and thats it. I dunno which is worse. I guess I should be thankful to have gotten something. But it was 4000 ego ago (between all characters)

Ego just about 2600. The only time I've seen an orange weapon was when a friend showed me his. If it weren't for the fact that it's part of a pursuit I wouldn't even care anymore. Maybe when DLC comes out they will be like oh snap we forgot to give some of these kats orange weapons.:p

I have gotten 8 oranges from both tier 3 and 4 lockboxes and im at ego 2050. I buy bits (40$ worth) then travel to all lockbox sites and purchase one from each location.

I got a leg bmg
I think it is a stingray. Outlaw synergy. Exp Bonus was self revive shortened after reviving any other Player.
Yeah and that's it.
No other roll. I found it a bit wierd, contacted Trion, and they told me something like:
The only guaranteed Bonus is the one that comes from leveling the weapon.
I asked if it is supposed to mean: Gratz, Now you have a leg crap bmg.
Never got an answer.

I have been really lucky with oranges. I have gone on streaks of a week without one.

I have pulled two oranges in a tier 4 box....not once, but twice. Both times I could have pulled better stats on a blue on one of the two, but it was still fun to watch the 2nd one pop up.

2314 ego and no oranges. however my 800-ish alt has 3 of them.

i'm convinced they only really drop for low level characters

I got my orange at low level and haven't seen any since. I have friends that got them higher level. Four leaf clover not working!

I used to think I would never get one. I always buy tier 4 from the same vendor. I didn't get my first until 1600 and now at 2500 and have received 5 (Bolter, Courier, VBI SMG, Tacc Autoshotgun, Mass Cannon, in that order.) I don't really care if they have some lousy stats on them. I'm just leveling all the weapon exp types before I worry about MODs on them.

I just think it is funny reading other's rituals or methods. If you haven't got one yet, then you are doing it wrong....see what you need to do is hold your breath for 30 seconds, make your character go prone 7 times then kill yourself with a grenade & self revive, all while wearing the EMC Heavy Trooper outfit, and this is all prior too even opening the lockbox vendor window...once that is open, chug a beer, take a pull and hold it, knock on the coffee table 3 times, purchase exactly 72 keycodes, scroll up and down the list 77 times ending on the tier 4 box, with your left index finger select buy....that should get you a legendary...if it doesn't...you did it wrong. Yes, I have a ritual. It may or may not be as intricate as the one above ;)

I run around the bug-n-chug 5 times and then run until
I see a Monarch. I sacrifice myself to him, extract, fast-travel to the Overpass then drive over Charlie on my way to Coit Tower where I buy the Tier 4 lockbox.

Dunno what I'm gonna do now that *sob* Charlie *sob* is gone.

Been playing since first day... so 3 months, beta not included.

14 + days played ingame and didn't get one orange in the first 2 1/2 months.Did earn alot more keys, early on in the game.

Got my First orange two weeks ago... second last week and two in the past two days/last two tier 4's.

Actually, have gotten a orange in 4 out of the last 6 tier 4's. Have been buying the mod boxes more lately since the added all the various types..

Did have to convert salvage into keys since the fix to the arkfalls, major and minor ones, have left many players standing around ... thinking what to do now. Why am I playing this game and ...a heard that this other game may be worth a look....

Buying bits really isn't a fun thing, earning keys can be.

Preordered the standard 60 and then deluxe upgrade 40 and the seasons pass 40 ? and 20$ in bits, $160 I recall it's alot less nowadays with all many sales and discounts .

Spent way more then I cared too and have gotten less than I expected. Nothing else from this guy , for a longggg time.

I came up with an orange shotgun during Loot weekend a month ago and then nothing on my own again.

I got an orange carabine from a trade.

And nothing else.

I bought pleny of lock boxes with resources, not with bits and when I'm "lucky" I get purple.

I don't know what to do anymore. :(

Been playing since launch to. Ego at 2600 and still to this day not one legendary. Its kind of ridiculous and discouraging. Wish this game or Trion wasn't so stingy with the legendary weapons.

I got my first orange at 1.8k+. Took me about 500k ark salvage and tier 4 crates. I would probably had better luck getting oranges from tier 3 but I decided to try out how much I needed to get at least one.

Just takes patience and a lot of ark salvage.

uh, guys.... finally got my first one tonight. I guess you just need to start a thread on the forums to initiate the process :) Its a VBI LM-12 Rocker LMG, synergy stalker, +5% range, +10% range, +5% ability refresh on critical kill, +10% EGO ability refresh on critical kill, 378 damage. Not sure if i like an LMG with a 3 round burst, but i'll give it a shot.

I am LV ~750 and got my first orange weapon two days ago, out from a tier 3 box, at the very first trading spot (earth ..). I kept buying Tier 3 boxes whenever I could afford them, shredded a lot of armours for keycodes..

it is a BMG VOT Spiker Protector, up to now I have never used BMGs in the game, but it is fun , still getting used to it ..

i think, i can compete with you for the title "unlucky bast***" xDD but...as i see or experiance by friends the best way to get orange guns is the tier 4 ,)

I am about the same. 3400 ego now, my last orange was at about 1200. All my keys go to tier 4 boxes.

Under 1200 it seemed that I would get an orange every 3rd or 4th tier 3 or tier 4 box...but those days are long gone.

I think TRION treated as priority to reduce the occurrence of people getting Orange anything... while ignoring many other things that effect gameplay due to lower priority.

I have been playing this game since launch and have four characters in play, two of which are in the 1500 to 1800 Ego rang and have only 2 Orange items and one of those was in a gift lock box for entering the 120 codes. Ran and rolled round overpass like a mad thing when I got my first in-game one. Is there a shortage of orange items on the EU server ?
