So I have not used any ark salvage at all since day 1 until this am. 6.4 million salvage and 300k scrip all from the overpass. No loot boosts on at all, no personal,clan,etc. Here are the results.

Green - 158
Blue - 212
Purple - 27
Orange - 3

Now I did get an awesome purple saw with syphon, assassin and 2 crit rolls. BUT..... these are the oranges

I know what you mean.

But can you imagine how bad the stupid people that use bits to buy lock boxes feel??

around 340 bits, MS points for a tier IIII lock box, and more often than not they are alll green and blue and completely trash?
so basicly 2000-3500 ark salvage for 4$


i can earn that much salvage ingame in 2 minutes..........

I have purchased bits, but only for inventory slots and clan boosts. Can't see spending them on lockboxes.

It would probably be denied by Trion.... but I am convinced that Bit Purchased lock boxes have a higher orange drop rate. I have bought boxes (Especially during the bits sale) And have 40+ Orange weapons, 30 of them at least came from the purchased boxes. Non-purchased boxes I have opened 100's of all three types and MAYBE scored the other 10 in my collection.

I did pull a ClusterNova from a T2 ;) So I may fall into LUCKY BASTARD category.

i think they nerf the lockbox drop rate lately based on my experience anyway because i grind keys and buy lockboxes everday

ive got over 300 lockboxes in the last 3 weeks... ive yet to get a orange in them and only have gotten 11 purple guns and 22 purple nades, ive pretty much given up on getting leg weapons as there stats are generally worse than most purples and cost a ton to remaster...

orange vbi stingray ego 2600ish.... 126k to remaster

purple vbi stingray ego 3500ish... 4k to remaster

purple has all same stats but also has +1 max links

im currently amassing 3 mil ark salvage to buy and record stats like you just did hopefully itll be up next week

i bought a couple tier two boxes and a tier three the other day and got an orange shield and an orange sniper. my friend spent about 4000 ms points on lockboxes and got squat.

I get on the game and the server is down. Then I come on the forums and the first thing i see is this. Next I read that they are applying last weeks patch. Last weeks patch says they are reducing arkfalls.

I got 4 oranges in 6 boxes on sunday and one of them had 2. Before sunday it had been a very long time since I had got any. They were tier 4's. Also only one of them was worth a damn but it was still pretty cool. I still have 2 mil ark salvage to spend but I just can't sit there and buy box after box.

Loot boost has everything to do with odds on lock boxes, your post and my own personal experience says as much.


I went through 108 tier 3 boxes and 15 tier 4. Boxes and got nothing.

20 tier 3's over loot boost weekend and I wound up with 4 oranges.


Congrats on the 5000 btw you sir are a savage.

I may have to agree with you I have purchased many tier 4 boxes with bits especially when the bit sale is going on I now have 54 orange weapons in my collection I guess I to fall into the LUCKY BASTARD category hahaha!!!

It has nothing to do with real money. I bought 26 T4 lockboxes, which was $50 worth of lockboxes back when they had the double bits sale. Never again will I spend real money with this awful system. 26 T4 lockboxes and I didn't get even one orange weapon. Not one. So to see the OP only get 3 out of 100 seems about "right", and that is one of this game's major issues.

This game has no stats, its random generated trash.

I don't mind the difficulty, if they were easy to get then the fun of it would no longer be there. I think I'm up to 5 that I have been able to get with tier 3 boxes.

Since launch I've been maxing my key codes then dropping them all on Tier 4's, using salvage to buy keys, and repeating. I'm not a basement dweller, so I haven't been opening more than a few a week, but it's still been a decent amount, and I've only gotten one orange, and it was a stinkin' BMG on a bonus loot weekend.

To be honest I was actually expecting no oranges. I have received some fantastic orange guns from boxes as I leveled up.

Also in reply to selling the because they are "leet" I really hope that no 5k players would pay much for either gun. The flash is useable, just not better imho than my Fragnovas.

P.s. so still love this game :cool:
