Lock Box Tiers?

#1kamehamehagoku1Posted 4/12/2013 2:23:20 AM
Ok, once and for all I would like to have some clarification as to what the difference is between each tier. I have looked all over the board and found no hard evidence of actual fact.

I understand each tier level with give you one more item, however is it just as likely to get a legendary gun from a tier 3 lock box as it is to get one form a tier 4 lock box? I have still yet to get any item better than a purple, I understand that orange are good, what colour are legendary items?

But yes my main point is does anyone actually know if it is worth having to save all the way to get a tier 4 box or just getting tier 3 or ever tier 2 boxes and still have a chance of getting legendary items?

Any help with this would be great to clear up once and for all.

I seen a bit of detail about this on the 360 broad which sums it up that cost wise to chances of getting a orange get 8 tier 2's gives just a little less chance than a tier 4 but you get more items.

So it's best to go tier 3/2 for the chance at getting a orange right now.

I'm not sure we're the previous poster got their info, but tier 4 boxes have slightly better chane (read 1%) to drop purples and oranges than a tier 3 box. Your chance gets slightly worse (read 1%) each level you drop down. This explains the cost difference and has even confirmed on the official boards. The difference is so minor it is almost insignificant, but every little bit helps, right?

Yeah hance why cost wise Tier 3/2 is better you can get more of them for just a 1% drop.

Just wondering through have they said if the perk for better drops affect lock boxes? guessing no.

The one legendary I received was from a tier 2. I have received several purples from tier 4 boxes.
