So far after opening many lock boxes, I only have 4 Orange items (all weapons).
I have never seen an Orange Shield or Grenade, which are needed for the Ego pursuit.
Does anyone have an Orange shield or grenade? If so, where/how did you get them?

Interested to see if everyone else is as unlucky as me when it comes to lockboxes :D

I've been playing since launch and I've got a total of 3 orange items, all weapons. Like you I can put orange grenades and shields in the same "Never Seen" category as quartermaster and assassin synergy mods.

I'm almost EGO 3000 and only have 3 oranges. Two BMGs and a shield.

Same here...ego 1000 and two Shorties. I mean two Shotties...wish I had me two shorties right now...damn...Lindsey and Tracey of Nicholas Dorm...now that was an awesome night....but I digress.

How exactly do some people have 10 or more oranges and millions in scrip?...now that is straight up crazy.

well I haven't seen any orange items drop from lock boxes and I started playing a few weeks after the game came out and have bought 100+ boxes mostly being t3 and t4 boxes

I have been playing since launch. Now 1744.

I have not gotten a single orange. But I had been told only tier 4 boxes have them? (and I have bought a lot of them)

Any lock box should have them. I have 3 orange items, all from tier 3 lock boxes.

Ego level 3100. Have spent well over 2m ark salvage on Tier 4 boxes (1.4 mil of that in one ultra long sitting). Have gotten an orange shield from boxes. Got 2 shotguns, 2 rocket launchers, 2 BMGs, 2 infectors, and a SMG from boxes (All but one from tier 4).

I started playing Defiance this past Tuesday. It took me until Saturday to finally get a grasp on the game, but cutting that time I have acquired an orange light machine gun and an orange grenade. I do not bare for the LMG because it is not FTC but the grenade is a blast ... Literally I guess. ;)

I spend most of my time doing arch falls now to receive keys and spend them on Tier 3 lock box items. Works out well for me. Have two side missions left and I am unsure if I want to restart the main story.

Do you lose your pursuits when you restart? I have really done the game solo since not many people use the game chat or link up. I came from Black Ops (terrible) and Borderlands. The social network there seems a little larger but that could just be me.

Found my 1st at ego 800. (rubish rocket launcher) then had like 10+ oranges by time i got 2 ego 1800. Sitting at ego 2700+ now & not found many more DECENT oranges. I ONLY open tier 4s tho as in my experiance they tend to have better stats & synergys. Saying that my friend got a badass saw from a tier 2! And replaying the story does NOT reset all of ur pursuits. Do your side missions b4 repeating story tho.

I started on the 8th. By the 12th I had a orange courier at ego 370 from my very first lockbox. Then 2 days later I got a orange incubator Ego 727. So far I haven't seen another orange from the box. but I have got a slew of epic purples.

EGO 3000+ Playing since day 1. Can't say how many lockboxes I opened. Never seen 1 orange. How's that for lucky?

05-23-2013, 10:33 AM
I feel like kind of a jerk for posting this but I got my first orange at ego 200ish from a t2 lockbox, its a grenade.

05-23-2013, 10:38 AM
EGO - 1550 - 2 oranges from tier 3 boxes. An infector and a rebel shield. I probably only opened 20-30 boxes so far.

i have talked to a few people in game and my own ex. is that on the weekends when more people are on is the best time to try. i did it 6 times and got three weapons last weekend out of tier 4 boxes.

I've been playing for about 2 weeks. My friend, who played since Beta, hasn't gotten a single orange item from the lock box. I did my SECOND tier 4 lock box and I got 2 orange items at the same time. Needless to say, he was pissed. lol.

I have an Orange Double Barrel Death Machine for a shotgun and I have Orange Grenades that are just epic, my buddy had an orange shield but decided it was trash to he broke it down.

I am almost 2k Ego and have gotten two oranges total, and both of them are utterly terrible - a double-firing sawed-off shotgun and a flare gun. They are really awful weapons, I'm trying to level them up but the dps is disastrous even with Single Minded, Overload and Survival Instinct because of the single shot + egregious reload time + terrible aim reticule. God grant me an elemental Votan LMG or an elemental grind fragger.

Also, as a side note to awfulness, who on Earth wants to use a sawed-off or flare gun with Single Minded? I took it so I could pour forth an endless stream of *ranged* dps from an assault rifle or, preferably, a long gun LMG, where you can avoid having to move much. But a shotgun is for close work, particularly a sawed-off one, and a flare gun requires constant movement to aim properly.
