Have to be closing in on 50 without seeing an orange and probably about 10-15 purples over that period. It's stunning that any of us idiots still play this POS.

Come back and complain after you have bought over 500 before getting an orange. Random is random, and quite frankly oranges are legendary and SHOULD be hard to get!

Oranges from the Warmaster are a dime a dozen. The real oranges with non-set stats are certainly getting hard to get. I've noticed a significant drop off in oranges from T-4 boxes. I used to get them regularly, now I'm getting the blue horde.

Last night I pulled 3 blue auto-lobbers and 1 blue shotgun out of the same box. The odds of that happening? Pretty good with Trion's RNG.

I actually was able to pull 2 oranges from T-4 lock boxes not long ago, but guess what, both crappy shotguns!

I opened two T-4 lockboxes in the last two weeks. I managed to get three oranges from the first (pistol, BMG, shotgun) and one from the second (shotgun). I don't really remember what else I received. I think it was mostly blue though there may have been at least one purple. My previous 20 to 30 attempts at T-4's (September and prior) resulted in one orange. So, from my perspective, T-4's seem improved.

I, too, have felt a disturbance in the fo- errr

yeah. My rate of oranges from t4 boxes has hit the floor. I have NO idea why Trion thought it was a cool idea to give T4 Boxes the following rate:

80% chance for blue
15% chance for purple
5% chance for orange

All this while making T4 boxes cost almost 3 times more than tier 3. Tier 3 boxes actually have a higher chance to get a purple than the tier 4 box, and a signficantly lower chance for blue, but a high chance for green.

Only Oranges I've seen in weeks were:



Rhino Contender IV DX
Wolverine with Cannoneer (no nano)
VBI Assault Rifle with Cannoneer (no nano)
FRC Auto-Scattergun (no syn, no nano)
VBI TACC Auto Shotgun (no syn, no nano)

On one of my 'toons.

No way someone got three oranges from a single T4 box. No chance at all.

Here is the typical T4 box - blue rocket launcher, blue rebound lobber, another blue rocket launcher, and some other blue piece of crap salvage...oh, and don't forget the blue grenade that goes to your claim items.

I think Trion made these worse lately. In exchange for taking greens out of the T4's, they just increased the chance of blues. I have stopped playing this game many times over the past year, usually after spending weeks and weeks of grinding for keycodes only to get absolutely nothing from lockboxes. Trion, why haven't you learned that you need to give players some time of reward every now and then to keep them coming back? This drop rate from T4's is just flat out wrong.

I was just on and watched a friend get 4 Legendary in 1 T4 - I saw them pop on my chat screen - mostly garbage but one VBI SMG in there too.

That is sick. I believe it too. A guy I know who used to play had the 4 OJs in 1 T4 happen to him also. As for myself, I have yet to just get more than one out of a single T4, including jackpots.

Still one orange item on average every 500 to 600k ark salvage from T4 lockboxes for me.

Hint: save up like 5mil ark salvage, then go play the lockbox lottery.

I'm still getting Orange items but with 5 exceptions I've never gotten anything other than shotguns, sniper rifles and rocket launchers. I've also gotten one shield, one cluster grenade, one detonator (VBI), one Rocker AR and one Thunder LMG with no synergies or nano (and it was pre-patch so missing bonus stats on current orange LMG's).

To me Orange items are a bit overrated because of the randomness of the bonus stats. I'll take a Purple item with 3-4 good bonus stats over an Orange item with 3-4 mediocre bonus stats any day of the week.

Oh, you have the shotgun curse as well? I'm confused how these drop so much -- why can't I have VBI ARs or Wolfhounds dropping out of the sky like we have shotguns, now?

On PC, so I can't help with more than advice/hint:

You don't know anyone with a suitable E-# OJ you could borrow for a few minutes?

I know the E-# for the 'nade isn't listed anymore, but it's still there, just hidden.

You'd need to find someone at a lower E-# who has a 'nade they can equip, to know it'd equip for you as well short of trial/error.

Don't bother with T4, I just bought 3 T3 lockboxes back to back....two of them gave me crap, but one of them gave me two OJ in a single T3!!! Been playing since day 1 and I never get this lucky. They are crap weapons, but at least their OJ crap weapons haha.:D

Oh and I got them at Bloodbath Turnout, I don't know why but the lockboxes there has always been good to me.

Edit:

One more thing, I think T4 might be broken, 'cause I've bought at least 10 of them in the past few days and got nothing above blues. Then again, RNG is RNG. =/
