Since there is slow a slow, slow accumulation of keycodes to put towards lockboxes, I think the developers should at least make it so that contracts give some. Maybe just 4 for a contract completed.

It still limits the farming of key codes, but also gives players a way to get them other than ark falls and co op.

Thoughts?

You can already get them from

Arkfalls
Co-op Maps
Pursuits
Lock Boxes

So there are plenty of ways to obtain them, you need to think about the big picture, this is an MMO so if everyone was getting hundreds of keycodes a day like before farming hellbug spawns it would of destroyed the social aspect to the game, this way payers will be more selective with what they spend them on, and in turn will open up more trading as players will not always get what they want when they want, the value of rare items and mods will go up and the economy will flourish, do you really want to get a legendary LMG that only has a value of 8,000 scrip or would you want to open a lockbox and see one knowing its going to be worth 100,000 ?, this is a good thing in the long run, its hard to see it now but it will be, its just going to take time thats all.

Selective with what they spend them on? What? There is only one selection... lock boxes.

While I cant say i've ever gotten them from Lock Boxes or Pursuits (would be interested in seeing proof for this) Arkfalls/Co-Op maps (if they're not bugged at the time and can actually be completed) Take any where from around 20-45 minutes, try getting enough for a T4 on those time limits within a day. They'd need to up the rolls on boxes to make this even remotely "fair"

For now yes, but with a load of DLC coming who knows whats coming in the future, all i know is the way it was before was broken, people need to understand that this will benefit everyone in the end, items will go up in value no end, major arkfalls will draw in more players, clans will grow, friends will be made, and you wont have a select few players dominating the market because they knew something you didnt.
