Nothing I didn't get one until level 2100 or so. I started playing day 1, openning 1 box a day on avg. My friend got one @ lvl 800. My wife just started an got a shield @ 47. Mostly random.

well despite what most people say just go for tier 4 boxes and turn every weapon purple and below into ark salvage.

It's mainly luck. My main character didn't get an orange until almost 1500, and my alt has gotten 2 by 600.

Nothing, it's just luck.
My boyfriend didn't get his first orange until after level 2500. I got my first one around 400.
My friend just started playing, is under 500, and she's been pulling an orange a day from tier threes.
There's no rhyme or reason, which makes it a little frustrating sometimes.

You are not doing anything wrong. Welcome to Defiance.

Blue,Blue,Blue,Green 90% of the time out of the tier 4 box is my norm. Some peeps have all the luck and others don't like myself. Oh well, bartering with others is the key to defiance success

My homie EGO 2100 (1500 less than me)has probably pulled 30 OJ's LMAO

For me oranges have been uber hard to obtain.I was Ego level 1800 before i got my first orange and the day after i got my second (both weapons). 4 Weeks later i pulled an orange shield and again 1 day later pulled an orange grenade. My friends have great luck with oranges, often getting 3-4 per week constantly, but they have never completed an orange loadout. I'm not bragging but perhaps you have a different sort of luck than your friends (like i did).

I'm 2300+ and just two days ago got my first from a lock box purchase. It is a NERFED missile launcher (kind figures, that is my lowest weapon rank) that so far is the worse weapon I have had. It has incapacitated me numerous times because it may fire two or three successive missiles. So, while jumping behind cover to avoid enemy fire the unwanted missiles explode against the wall I just ducked behind and blow me to the spectator seats. The extraction fees are adding up. Even stranger, it sometimes fires nothing at all, just makes a popping sound and shoots air (not out of ammo, it actually misfires). Fortunately my backup weapon is a good purple that is actually worth the space it takes up. So don't despair at not having one yet. Some are real crappy oranges in the bin.

I remember the first week I got an orange FRC saw, and I sold it soon after. This was before I knew how demanding they really are

It's all just random luck. I only got one orange in my first 2300 levels, but I've have gotten 4 more oranges in the last 2 weeks. I would recommend saving up for tier 4 boxes, as they have a higher chance of getting orange(the devs have confirmed this). I have 5 oranges now, and only one of them came from tier 3 lockbox. The other 4 oranges I got from tier 4 lockboxes. Actually 2 of my oranges(Tachmag pulser and crash boomer) I got only an hour apart. I just had a stroke of luck.

STOP IT, JUST STOP IT!!! Yes it's random luck. And that's what kills me. I am the most unlucky person on God's earth. EGO Level 2889 and have yet to pull an orange. After opening around 1000 lock boxes I stopped. Now here's the kicker: My friend who has only had the game around four weeks, wait for it..........has pulled 4 Orange weapons out of Tier 4 boxes. One was a FRC SAW, the other was a Bio Nova Grenade. I'm sorry did I say he was my friend?......hahaha...silly me..........of course he's no longer my friend. Soooooooo. that's my story believe it or not.

Lol...I love bonus loot weekends. I can save up enough for a tier 4 pretty quick. just keep trying bro, it's bound to happen sooner or later. I only got one for 2300 levels, but then it blew up for me.
