Hornet drop rate?

#1darktonberryPosted 4/10/2013 12:38:10 AM
I am farming for this weapon and not having great luck. I want this gun because I need a better corrosive weapon for my UVHM playthrough. Is this a super rare drop like anything with bunk3r or am I just been unlucky as of yet?

Been unlucky is my guess. Hornet is one of the lesser rare legendary weapons. I think it's because knuckledragger usually always drops a pistol which significantly raises your odds of the item being dropped is a pistol and whether or not it is a legendary.

Kinda like a cobra would be a little easier to find if all burners dropped were snipers.

Also be sure to check everywhere because after you kill him stuff flies around all over the place.

Yeah I notice that he always drops a white pistol when he dies. Ive also noticed that his loot always shoots back up to the ledge even if he jumps down to the bottom to attack you. Atleast each run doesnt take that long to do...

Yeah it's really not that bad of a run for a solid corrosive weapon. Good luck.

I've actually found that the loot always spreads out over the open lower area, even if he dies on the ramp/ledge, or up above the barge, or inside the barge if you're coming from Southern Shelf.
