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.
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.
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.
