Need tips on which packs are best...

#1samedPosted 3/12/2013 12:53:36 PM
In regards to the store packs, I've been buying mainly PSPs and more recently arsenal packs to get some better weapons. I have all the characters I want know so I'm focusing on weapons and mods/gear. What are the best packs to get if I'm only trying to get gold weapons? And whats the best packs for gear alone? What I'm really after is the collector smg, good pistols (paladin, executioner etc) and ultra light/extended barrel mods. Gear would be nice too.

there is no best pack for gear/mods/weapons.

What you get from a pack is based on its rarity... If you are looking for uncommon items, a regular spectre pack may be your best bet.

If what you want is rare/gold, you want PSPs. I regularly got 3 rares per PSP and Arsenal pack until i maxed most of my manifest...

So to answer your question, stick to Arsenal/PSPs for rare(gold) items...

Jumbo is only for Equipment and Consumables.

Would that include ultra light materials and extended barrels? And gear?

I would stock up on SP and Jumbo packs if you're mostly doing gold and plat (esp plat)

wrong type of equipment...
Weapons - self explanatory
Gear - items you can equip and will not get used up during a match (eg geth scanner)
weapon mods - self explanatory (ultra light materials, gun barrels)
equipment - consumable upgrades used up per match (rail amps, ammo powers)
consumables - in game items, (medi-gels, etc)

those jump equipment packs only drop equipment and consumables

That sums it up nicely, thanks man. Is the collector smg rare or ultra rare? I wanted one to put on the collector adept for silver and gold matches
