No orange weapons on first playthrough...

#1ArathionPosted 11/9/2009 5:25:25 PM
I'm starting to wonder if either I am really unlucky with the drops I get or do orange weapons appear more in the 2nd play through. But I looted pretty much anything I saw, but I'm wondering if my chances would be better in another area? Any tips you guys can give me?

I only found one orange weapon in play through 1 lol. The gun was a combat rifle called Desert Raven with some numbers in front of it and had red text. "2 More Bullets Makes All The Difference". I used it for the rest of play through 1 'cause i couldn't find a better one but it sucked so i used SMGs and shotguns most of the time.

You're just unlucky. I found dozens of Oranges. But I also box hopped New haven for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours.

Yes, many hours.

Run Old haven a few times your bound to find some very good green/blue/purples there which can be better then oranges. Box grinding is exceptionally boring to me so I prefer to play in these areas with other people to up the drop rates/rarity's.

most of the oranges i've found aren't very good anyway. they're really not a big deal.

Think I was about level 22 on Mordecai when I went to one o' them gunshops, and wham, found an orange revolver for level 19, with 49% loading speed, +X% damage, and +11 ammo regen.

I kept using it until I ran Skag Gully a bit on my second playthrough.. Still have it to regen ammo for my new and improved revolver :)

Wow... unlucky. I am on playthrough 1 on a new Lilith game and have found about 15 orange weapons so far. I'm lvl 27.

i didn't find any until Old Haven, and they were all in lockers, none in chests. Old Haven is also the first place I found Eridian weapons.

Its more to do with randomization than lucky... some will find none, others will find dozens and still others, like me, will happen upon a crappy orange in a vending machine that I never should have bought... lol.

correct me if im wrong but i think that orange only appears with 3 or more players.
