I think there is an error. I am fighting Sho in tipsy toe on hard on day two, week 2 and he ain't dropping no dark matter. I even lowered my level to increase droprate.

That was so weird. I reset it to easy and then back to hard and now he's dropping them.

Hm, when you fought him before did you make sure your drop rate was 100% for dark matter?
That's the only thing I can think of.

Yeah, I made sure and everything. I think I just forgot to switch it to hard.

I think Rare Metal is easier to farm from the Vulture type noise. sure they get annoying stealing the pins from you but they all drop pins and generally show up in larger numbers and larger numbers of noise symbols.. it's similar to the SoutherFrog trick mentioned for money harvest. i beleive Joshua has the bird bash in the west bus terminal. i think someone else has it in the place between Scramble and AMX.. those are the two locations i remember for birds... and play on normal. i haven't checked other difficulties yet but normal does it so it's fairly simple to do..

Noise #58-60 all have Rare Metal as normal drop
Noise #58 has Tektite for ultimate and hard drops

i only suggest this because they appear in numbers and their locations generally have a lot of their bird symbols flying around and less of the other symbols in which they also appear generally minimum of two birds in the non-bird symbol.

What's up, soniccloud?

Hey durango!
Did you just start playing this game?

In response to SieKensou as for the rare metals, I think the spot I chose was for the convenience factor of being able to farm multiple different drops than just only rare metals. However if you're just gunning for rare metals, your spot may indeed be superior to mine. It's been a while since I've played, so I'll have to take your word for it.
