View Full Version : EGO Lock Box

Does your EGO level affect the items you get in a lock box? Someone said the little number next to a weapon was the EGO level you need to use it. So does this change the possibilities of what you can get if you can't use it?

That's my point, you cannot get the higher weapons.

You can always use what you get and should always get weapons of the EGO you were at when the box was opened. Always.

Weapons and gear always spawn at or below your current level. The only exceptions to this are vendor items, which will eventually start appearing in tiers that will be ahead of your current level.

Ego level really has no effect on what item types you can use, it does affect how much how much it costs to detach mods or add mod slots to weapons though, oh and if a friend who is a higher ego has a weapon you might like, you'll probably have to wait until your ego value is high enough.

Everything I've ever gotten out of a box matched my current Ego rating. You'll always be able to use what you get. You may not actually want to use it however. I've gotten alot of garbage out of them.

So should I put off buying lock boxes until I get a higher EGO rating to get better weapons????
