Would the recruit or expert be better than the elite if going for forge or grenade drops? Seeing as 99% of it gets vended anyhow. Do the lesser boxes even drop t5 nades? I think the cost to max forge drop ratio goes 8:20, 24:50, 64:100, but does the expert or elite have a higher % chance to drop than the recruit?

So everyone just buys the elites I suppose? Well, that's what I always buy anyway, but I kinda wonder if the others are more cost effective if trying to get forge or t5 nades, although obviously you get (slightly) better weapons from the elite, almost always vend anyway. Chance at a jp too I guess. What is the current elite box jp?

Honestly it used to be better buying lesser key boxes but they adjusted that years ago. The best for what you want are elite boxes.

If you just want replacement stims, spikes and grenades (ie rarity does not matter) than smaller boxes. But you sacrifice AF earnings and possibly (snow balls chance in hell bug hunt) of pulling a perfected gun. Last JP/Perfected pull I have had from that box was Enervator. Which was 2.5-3 years ago.

Please note the max arkforge awarded from each box.

8 KC - 20 AF (40 with PP)
24 KC - 50 AF (100 with PP)
64 KC - 100 AF (200 with PP)

Most people don't know this.

I had researched this and tried it for almost a week. It was terrible pulls no purple / oj anything. But after konstantinov posts I would think if you want af then the 8k with pp might be what I do from now on. The post I found was old I found so Logan's comment definitely is backed up by my results.

If you're going for oj nades then make sure your other owned nades are fully refilled otherwise those oj nades just go to your unfilled nades if you already own oj versions of them. Sucks but what can you do.

So last night I bought 8 box and did not get any af, then tried 64 and the same no af. Can someone confirm they are getting af?

It’s rng based. You’ll either get stun/spikes/AF (may be forgetting something).

The truth is that if you're trying to get more AF then you have to hit missions, coop's, majors..etc. an hour or two of even "lazy" play will get you more AF than buying boxes from the keys that you get in that same time.
