Just wondering if anyone has had any luck getting some OJ weapons out of Tier 2 boxes as of the last patch? I have been away from the game for awhile. Bought like 1,000,000 salvage worth of Tier 4's the other night and got 2 - OJ's out of approximately 14 Tier 4 boxes. One Magnum pistol and a Nomad Smg. Not really tickled pink about either of those ... but now I am wondering if I would of been better off just buying a ****load of Tier 2 boxes instead.

None from 2's. 1 oj shield and an oj grenade from 3's. Instead of needle in a haystack, it seems more like needle in a hay field after the patch.

I only buy tier 2's. I get OJ weapons, shields and grenades out of them.

The question I have is whether or not you can get ARK shields out of them since I've never gotten one of those.

I have also pulled arks from T2 but at the moment have no luck... A clan mate pulled 2 oranges from one T2 last night!

I was going to post this very thread. Thought it was a bit strange that I've gotten 4 OJs in the past two days from only a hand full of T2 lockboxes. Even got a Respark IV DX (DX, EX, something alone the X lines, forgot the exact thingy.) The thing damn near insta recharges after I'm hit.

T2 are the "best" source for OJs actually. Best relation between price/keys/rewards.

I stick with T2 and T3 but mostly 2's I've pulled an OJ SMG from a 2, although it had crappy rolls. Tonight I was amazed I pulled an OJ shield and frag grenade from the same T3 box. I don't remember that ever happening.

In the last week, I've pulled 2 legendary shields, and a legendary VBI SMG. Have yet to pull an ARK Shield from anything, and haven't seen any oj nades in months.

It has been a long long time since I've seen an OJ drop from a T2 box... however, I have been getting a decent amount of AF from T2 boxes as of late.

And I still need OJ 'nades for my loadouts, now that I think about it...

I'm getting a legendary Gun about once every other night from t2s. I did just get 200 arkforge from about 10 t2 boxes if that matters. Haven't pulled an orange grenade since mid last year...

I can definitely say yes on getting OJs on Tier 2. I've been using those for Arkforge gathering and see an OJ shield or weapon pop up here and there. Nothing to write home about, but an OJ all the same. :)

Since the patch got a OJ pyro (already had one). :(

since you have the same chance of pulling arkforge out of T2, T3, and T4 boxes, I only pull T2's. I'll save the Monolith for my "hopes of getting a Legendary". That being said I have pulled:
(2) FRC ASSAULT CARBINES
(1) TACHYON GRENADIER (non ark)
(1) NORTHSTAR FLARE
(1) SURGE NANO FRAGGER
and some other crap. Most of these are of little use to me, but YES you can get oranges from T2's.
My advice...Save up your keys and buy (8) consecutive T2's.
Good Luck

I pulled an OJ Ironclad and Hatchling Grenade just last night from T2s, so they are definitely dropping OJs still. I personally prefer T3 for equipment, but I always need more Arkforge so I stick to T2s.

This thread has convinced me to switch to tier 2s. I've been wasting my keys on tier 4s getting freaking blues after blues.

Tier 2 hands down is a better buy unless you are hoping for an OJ. The Arkforge is *usually* very generous. I wait until I max my keys and buy them all at once. I've gotten over 150 at times. There are times I haven't gotten any... but that is a rarity.

I do OK on OJ's with T2 boxes. Got 2 flashnades in two consecutive boxes the other day. Used to buy T3's but since the shift to chasing arkforge I've been buying T2 only.

^^This, ark forge is my new orange guns! LOL

Mathematically, you have a better chance at getting an orange from t2's. 16 chances (8 T2) to 4 chances (1 T4).

Since DLC 5 released T2 boxes

Shields: 20 or so
Weaps: 30 or more
Nades: 4
Arkforge: 9000+

It's a rough guesstimate.

The only part I'd change for me is the Nades. I have over 300 items in my storage. Roughly around thirty are daily, weapons and various boxes I'm waiting to open. The rest are Grenades, stims and spikes. Mostly grenades.

Well I bought a couple tier 2s and got nothing. Not even arkforge. Oh well I'll keep trying. At least when I'm over the annoyance of my last crit.

Well , I gave it a shot today and bought approximately 40 Tier 2 boxes. Didn't get anything OJ , but a few decent Purp's. I am starting to get very frustrated with this game again. Starting to remember why I quit playing it for several months. You grind your *** off saving up salvage / script only to get jack **** for it.

Most people I know now only open tier 2's to get decent arkforge/keys ratio. I do myself and most people I know including myself get a fair few ons from tier 2's... Had a couple tonight :)

RNG is still too trion-ish. i got 5 orange guns from events, 1 frag nade and a gun or two from T2 boxes today. now i wonder when i'll see orange next time. in a week? month? year?

also sometimes you get 20 AF from 10-15 T2s in a row, sometimes you pull 150 AF from 4...

I've gotten plenty of arkforge from T2's lately (about 400 to 500 so far in the last few days), and several purple weapons, even a good double crit, double syphon purple wolfhound, but I've yet to pull any oj's from them personally.

Well i pulled an orange Rebel Shield and an Orange VBI shotgun last week out of T2.
I could have sworn they lowered the arkforge rate in the beginning of the week cause in like 30 boxes i got 20 Arkforge.
And yesterday i pulled arkforge out of nearly every box i bought which was about 20 or so.

RNG is RNG and extremely streaky at such low sample sizes.

Probably just superstition, but I never buy T2 boxes from the same place after the first "+20 AF" drops out of one.

Probably just superstition too, but everytime i buy from different places, the drops go down, very low. ;)

I don't buy from Coit. I have pulled OJs from every other vendor, but not Coit. Coit can suck it.

Yup.. that's what I meant.. shooting and melee syphon on a purple wolfhound. Only thing that would have made it better is if it had assassin synergy, but instead it's got the one for reload speed.

I was feeling pretty good about Overpass. Well until recently anyway. I've got shtako.

Edit - Although I did pull an OJ ground splitter from Gunslinger box and a black cowboy hat too.

Now that you've mentioned it, Coit does seem to be the stingiest of all the vendors.

Double syphon? Or do you mean nano & melee are both syphon? Or are you typoing like mad?

Bought approximately 30 Tier 2 boxes last night, got an OJ Bolter,OJ Assault Rifle/Bio,OJ SMG Pulser/Bio,OJ Hatching Gren. and about 170 Ark Forge.Once i got an OJ I would change vendors,don't know if that really changed things but it still gave me more Oj's.

PseudoCool
05-31-2014, 10:30 PM
RNG must hate me.. I did another 41 T2's tonight before logging off.. not a single OJ from any of them. I did rank up about 300 more arkforge tho, but other than that, nothing to write home about at all, and not a single weapon worth keeping. I did mine this evening from Coit, Bug-n-Chug, and Iron Demon.

I've gotten only a small handful of OJs, they all sucked except the Matchlock Boomer and the nades. I've been opening TONS of boxes and get squat for it.

konstantinov
05-31-2014, 11:51 PM
So I've been playing on my low level toon lately and I've pulled a syphon blast rifle, a dbl crit and a dmg QM courier. It seems like they give you more arkforge on low level chars. Has anyone else noticed that? Like every box I buy I get arkforge. I'm not complaining by any means. started at 350 a few days ago and now I'm at like 1700. Still pulling shields from DMs like it's going out of style. I actually gave away a ARK shield the other day.

Since the release of Ark Forge i only buy T2, I get on average 4 legendaries a day out of them and countless Ark Forge.

Not just low tier crap ether - I have pulled a Rhino Berserker V ARK and a Fire/Cannoneer VBI Assault Rifle which i kept over my current one. My curent lucky vendor is overpass, two of my friends have both pulled Berzerker ARKS from the same location out of T2s also (Respark and Tachyon).

T2s seem to give out legendary grenades more frequently also i've noticed.
