So, I just got this game (one of you may have seen my two posts asking for people to roll with) and I have a character for co-op and a character for online/solo play. My main is 20 something (loooow I don't even have a 50) and my mechromancer is 13. I have never, nor will I ever, accept guns (duped or otherwise) for free unless they're stupid rare. I struggle to get my gear, or do fair trades.
Anyway, while I was on my Mechromancer, my buddy and I went to Sanctuary to stock up and I decided to go to the gun vendor and to my utter and absolute surprise, I found a Rapid Infinity.
Granted, it is a Lvl. 13 Rapid Infinity so in a few levels I'll outgrow it and pass it on to my other characters, but I was just curious how rare is this? What is the difference between the Infinity dropped by bosses (besides the Prefix) and the ones in the vendor? Did I just get extremely lucky, or is this just a slightly uncommon bad ass occurrence? I'm always seeing posts about Infinities on this board.
Also, I would be willing to dupe it (I don't know how to dupe) for anybody who would like one. I think it's nice that it's low level, because I can keep giving it to my other characters and on my Mechromancer it's absolutely awesome (Anarchy + Close Enough = aiming?)
tl;dr I found a Lvl 13 Rapid Infinity in a vending machine. What, if any, is the difference between this and the boss drop ones? Is this a rare occurrence? Is a low-level Infinity as rare as a high level Infinity?
I found a shredifier the very first time i was in oasis in the weapon machine, i was so stoked, it's pretty cool when stuff like that happens in this game...it carried me for awhile too still have it for my mid levels...
