So... Why not buy a ton of Lock Box 2s instead of 4s, reading it seems the only difference is an extra 2 items, but at an alarmingly higher price. Error or is it more likely to get better items out of the 3s + 4s?

higher chance of higher rarity with higher tier boxes.

My suggestion would be to max out your key codes at 75 and only purchase Tier 3 Boxes. Tier 4 has a slightly higher chance to yield orange loot than Tier 3, but if you purchase 3 Tier 3 boxes at once... this yields an even higher chance than a single Tier 4 due to the sheer volume of items coming from them.

Shameless plug :D:
I've been gathering data on what the drop rates are like for the lock boxes are like in the aim of figuring out which one's worth getting the most.

The drop rates for gear of high rarity increases with the tier of lockbox, but initial results are suggesting tier 3 is where you'll get the most for your keycodes.
