Placement on a scoreboard has no effect on the quality or rarity of gear. A higher score will net you more XP, Arkforge (above 35k), and Keys, but has no bearing on getting Legendary equipment.

The only "exception" here is for regular Sieges. The only way to get a chance at orange gear is to score high enough for the top tier loot box. To do this, you have to score 20,000 points or more in a Volge Siege, or 27,000 at an Afflicted Siege. This is not to be confused with the Incursion Sieges. Those can grant oranges with any score.

Bottom line, it's random whether or not you get Legendary items from an event that can reward them.

I came 0th place and I didn't even try. Hell, I was playing Watch Dogs at the time.

If first place would grant you anything higher than 10% legendary chance I'd once again be swimming in them (at least ones with the current max rating).

^ This. ^

I've had better "luck" getting OJs when I place somewhere in the range of #10 to #21 at those events.

Who cares how many times you have come in first with your score boost.

This is not to be confused with the Incursion Sieges. Those can grant oranges with any score.Is this based on personal experience? Because my personal experience is that the only reason you can get a Legendary item from an Incursion is because Siege rewards are given out at the end and you still need to reach the score at the Siege to get a roll for the Legendary. I have never gotten the roll otherwise.

Gosh, if you manage to score below 20k (volge) or 27k (afflicted) at incursion seiges... you need more help than orange weapons :D

I've come in 21st (i.e I didn't place) and came out with an OJ VBI SMG. While being the the top 5 I've gotten an OJ ARK shield. So the place doesn't matter.

These are the minimum requirements to get a possible Legendary in sieges, hence me quoting Amack. Even then it's a rarity. I think I've gotten two or three with the ridiculous amount that I've participated in.

Same for me. Place doesn't matter in DM Arkfalls. Not sure if it does at others.

No, no, no, you need to have your score divisible by 1000 points evenly or you don't get an orange.

Yes, from personal experience. I showed up at the tail end of the Kenn Farm Incursion a couple weeks ago and finished with a score somewhere in the range of 10-15k and received a Legendary Sub Carbine.

There has been some of us who have noticed it seems if you keep your score low at the DM Arkfalls your chance of getting orange is higher (as in like less than 50K)...

I've adjusted my behavior by no longer using my wolfy until the arm is fully exposed.

I'm still not getting ojs, and I'm still coming in 1st from time to time.

Maybe I should crawl around on the floor for awhile.
