hey guys just wondering what do you guys find the best lock box to get range weapons from? i have 400 bits so idk whether to buy 3 tier 2 or 1 tier 2 and 1 tier 3 or 1 tier 4
i was thinking 3 tier 2 but idk what do you guys think?

None actually.

6% chance in a T3 and a 8% chance in a T4... 100% chance to get garbage in T2/T3/T4

most ppl buy T3's due to cheaper price..

Save your bits for something you can't earn in game.

I'm at EGO 1600ish and have only bought T4's. I have 3 legendaries. However, some people are lucky with T3's. It's gambling no matter what the chances are, so I'd rather waste in game currency instead of real life currency.

Could someone post a link to where Trion/Defiance stated the percentages for the lock box orange items please.

If you're set on buying lock boxes with the bits, I'd buy T4 but I'm only saying that because that's where my luck was. The results vary wildly from person to person.

If you are playing with friends I recommend getting boosts instead.

The only lock box vendor I remember getting an orange from is Bug 'n' Chug. The magic hasn't repeated since, though...

I got all 3 of my legendary weapons from the vendor at Iron Demon Ranch.

10 teir 4's and 4 Orange items in the past two days. That's 10% of my 40 items.


I wasted a ton of scrip buying loads of tier 3's.

From ego 1000-4000 I bought all tier 3's with very little success in the orange department- although I did get some nice items.

Tier 4's have yielded a much better lot of guns for me. Although you still have a chance to get all greens in a tier 4- gotta love RNG.

I've grabbed three tier four lock boxes tonight, and got a legendary out of two of them. I've never gotten anything good at any of the lower levels.

I only buy tier 2 boxes and those are the ones that I have gotten 8 legendary shields out of. No weapons yet though.

I'm @ level 1600 now and I don't even know how many t4's I've hit, but out of all of them... 1 orange. I'm going to start hitting t3's and t2's.
Just a suggestion... If good weapons are going to be this hard to find, can we make finding the synergy mods a little easier to find?

I kid you not. Last night i pulled 2 legendaries back to back. Bought a tier4 from top notch and got a Vot Swarm Cannon and bought a tier2 from Overpass and got a Pyronova pro grenade. The best luck i have ever had. So its not impossible to get legendaries out of tier2's. believe me, i almost sh4t myself :) Good Luck!!!

I remember awhile back reading the forums and seeing that someone said that if a lockbox hasn't been used in awhile than there is more of a chance to get an orange
With that said I decided, just today, to go to the lock box at coit tower, figuring that no one ever goes there
I bought a tier 3 and BAM!! got a orange ironclad

I use colt tower and overpass all the time and get no more luck there than anywhere else. So your theory is wrong lol :)

Sorry think I stole your luck, last 3 tier 4's all had 1 legendary each. Just stick with them I've had long draughts but then times like the past 2 weeks getting 6.

Not disagreeing with you but I will say the last 5 tier 4 lock boxes I bought w/ bits all had an orange in them; one had 2. Could be my luck or coukd be reparations for the couple hundred t4 boxes I bought with key codes and barely pulled purples lol.

i only buy the lock box's in game, never with bits, never got a legendery in them yet, but I got lucky during a co-op map Cronkhite Bunker at ego 1591 and got a legendery ground pounder with assassin synergy and have never seen another legendery sens but i'v been finding better ground pounders but with no synergy so i use them for resorses. wish i could find assassin synergy mods for my bolt snipper.

Got my first legendary weapon last night, out of a T3 lockbox. Aside from a few T2 lockboxes that I bought in the first few weeks of playing the game, I've stuck with only buying T3 lockboxes after learning more about them.

VOT Meteor Bolter (electric bolt)
Synergy: Assassin
(1) +2% Crit Mult
(2) +4% Crit Mult
(3) +5% DMG on next shot after critical kill (expires after 10 sec.)

Should be right around 1000-1100 like other meteor bolters, I believe.

i'v found meteor bolters in the 1300's so it's a toss up on his level if he gets good damage or not ans snes it has assasin Synergy when he adds assasin mods it can dubbel

Yeah, it's something in this range... 1050-something, if I remember correctly. Late night last night... LOL

Good times... I need to get some Assassin mods for that legendary Bolter, then.

Or if your more solo, and don't mind the grind, you might want to consider inventory slots.

Just as I thought. Seen a low Lvl toon under 400
Ego, rocking all orange items. Orange syphon saw, orange bolt
Sniper orange mass.

Took screen shots of there loadouts cause I smelled bs. It made me start wondering, how does such a low ego have these kind of oranges already? I looked at there achievement scores and sure nuff they are new.

One thing stood out, money, they had bought a few of the 15$ outfits, so I sent them a msg about there lock
Box luck.

Hahahah 'bought em with bits'

Seen thousands of ppl say 'it don't matter'

Well after 1000 hrs in this game and thousand of lock boxes later, oh it matters.

In the first few weeks of games launch we was getting decent drops, then the patches came, ten @defiancegame had the nerve to say "Na servers have toady oranges" & "you all are farming key codes way, way to fast"

Then I noticed a really dry spell, yea ego does effect this. But all in all, after several issues involving
Money and what Trion buts a priority
On, it's all
About money. And this post along with several weeks of research, proves it.

Yea go 'use a diff outfit you earned' while we don't fix the one you earned because its bugged and you didn't pay for it, but BTW, we just added some more 15$ Fourth of July recolors to the in game store.

Oh
Yea, & don't worry we won't add any festivities to holidays, not even some lame fireworks, Na we will wait untill the following Monday to bring back rewind episodes. At least when we do the lights pursuit when they go into the air they go off like fireworks.

Common sense you can't learn from a book. Ain't no college class or degree for it. But yet everyone needs it and not many have it.

Dudes looking like metrosexuals with pony tails and hair lines to the back of there necks will never be able to relate to anything other than?!??

Money. Money up, ppl out, fan boys remain.

I received microsoft points as a birthday present from someone that knows I play Defiance and said, what the heck! I bought 30 tier 3 lockboxes and I got ONE purple out of the 30. No orange, only 1 purple. Two days later I bought a couple of tier 4 boxes and I still did not get a legendary OR PURPLE. I've bought several tier 2, 3, 4 lockboxes and have not got squat. Not even a decent weapon that I have used in combat situations. All those have come from vendors I paid script for. Yet my brother has been able to get 3 oranges from his 6 (yes six) purchases of tier 2 lockboxes. And 4 oranges and 20 purples for his 20 tier 3 lockboxes! 20 tier 3 lockboxes and 6 tier 2 lockboxes have yielded him 7 orange weapons/shields.

I'm 1250 ego and he's 700 ego. I don't understand this. It makes me never want to buy a tier lockbox again!

But what can I do? I have found several purple weapons from vendors that have full synergy like assassin and so forth that I have picked up because I honestly do not think I will ever receive an orange in this game.

It would be nice if there was a vendor that did trades such as you give them weapons and a random calculation of the levels you gave them was implemented and was used to give the player back a different weapon. Like if you gave the vendor 20 purples that is a high enough chance that you will get one orange weapons in the process.

It would reduce game inventory and also morale of losers like myself that will die from scurvy due to no oranges.... ;)

orange might be better, but folks I've asked indicated that their experience is mixed. I'm 2100 and I have no orange weapons. But I've got the idea that "orange" really just creates a market demand (not a slap at vendors, that's an important service for some). The color indicates "rarity" and not "excellence" and of course some of them may well have considerable capability.. BUT apparently not all.

Whats up everybody? Oranges are over raided. People paying outrages prices for weapons/shields/grenades, when i can gaurentee you all of my purples are better than 90 percent of the legendaries. Don't go knocking me because i say that either, i have a legendary grind fragger worth 1mil, i have mazu blast rifle 500-1m script, if i sold them, i have a shield 250k, and a couple others so don't knock me, and don't call me a broke scrub, i may not have 10mil script, but who needs script or oranges. I can out damage most of the people in defiance with my purples. Until people actually start realizing the oranges are junk the prices will keep going up. The color is orange, thats why people pay what they do. Which is stupid. Its like buying a caddy because OMG its a caddy. LOL, screw caddies, and screw oranges. Just saying......

Its only because of the slight advantage in one extra mod roll. Some people will pay for even the slightest advantage. This drives prices to crazy heights.

How would i go about joining this Clan? I'm in one currently but not really that satisfied with how active it is. By the way, a big thank you to whoever has served in the military. Most people just don't get that freedom has a price. That's why i plan on enlisting. Anyway, thanks much.

The boxes are weighted to drop percentages. After that comes the random chance of those items dropping. Same as payouts for slot machines. Winning is random but payouts are not.
