I was wondering if anybody knew how the drop system from mobs works in this game. From personal experience, at the beginning of the game, I was getting loot from almost every single "powerful" mob (Mutant Grenadiers and Minigunners), but now I rarely see any green or higher drops from enemies. Mostly I see white grenades and shields now. I also went back into Mount Tam and did some testing on enemies, most notably the power station mini-event where the boss enemy always dropped a green or better, and lo and behold no loot at all. So it appears to me that loot may be related to power level, which kinda sucks because I may be a little over-leveled.

Also...has anybody ever seen a purple or greater item drop from something other than a lockbox?

Any input would be much appreciated.

All I've been really seeing is white drops now, they nerfed the grenade launchers, gatling gun blue guys. Highest I've seen drop in game at 421 ego levels is a blue and I've done the co'ops and the like.
