high level shottys this weekend?

Can GB even change drop rates without some sort of patch? I didn't think they could alter that stuff without patches. Is there anybody more tech-savvy than I out there who could drop some knowledge? Thanks!

I'm psyched for this if true, I'd like to add to my already ridiculous arsenal of shotguns.

By rares, do they mean Legendary shottys, like the CC, or just much better blues and purples?

Bad Company 2 was able to make minor changes without releasing a full patch, so there's someway it works.

I might end up farming BNK3R today. That expensive security pinata generally drops a handful of blue and purple shotties and only takes a few mins to kill from the save spot.

Only if you connect online on their Shift severs. UNLESS they had anticipated this and written this in the code of the previous patch. Otherwise, much like the Raid Boss lockout, if you are offline, this should be moot.

That's why it says specifically in the post that you have to play in the time specified while "connected to the internet". It was a server-side hotfix definitely.

What I find interesting is the "expiration" of this...it's not a specific time period like 24 hours or a few days, they said they anticipate it to last until that time...this is a strange thing to do
