Well, I think it's me.... with the 2x drop rate I still couldn't find a purple weapon at all... at any level... I just want to ask how players have been when it comes to their finds at level 20.
Here's my inventory:


So, how are your finds with the 2x drop?

Guys...guys...we only just started the increased drops a few minutes ago.

When I said more drops, I meant more drops. As in volume, not better / rarer drops.

So, as con said it's only more drops for Items...

But I still want to see the older player's inventory.. when the there was still a higher chance of finding good weapons and gears...

here's my gear inventory:


So, guys... How Lucky were you guys back then?

Actually, I've been trying to manage the level gap between my survivors and my leader... I always go with a 5 man team (it lessens the gap a bit). also I make sure that all my survivors are at the compound when there's an infected sighting. if half of my survivors are away during infetced sightings I just refresh...

I'm a pretty patient player...

You guys keep a lot of junk :P

The 2 guns highlighted green should be green, there stats are they same as other green weapons, just a bug.
The red highlighted weapons are my comedy guns, I think I junked my 'maintained rusty gun' ?
To keep my survivors equal I send them out as 2 groups of 1 recon, 1 fighter, 1 scavenger and the other : Leader (works as recon), 1 fighter, engineer (melee guard to medic) and medic (acting scavenger)

My purple weapons are lower level and my blue Uzi was purple till the update.

Only Level 20 purple weapon I ever found is this High Capacity Scoped M4A1. Got it before the x2, but after the drop rates were nerfed (I think). Have a ton more purple gear though, but strangely, I found around half of them after the drop rate nerf.



As for the x2 itself, I'm not getting anything useful out of it. Ah well, maybe it's just my luck.

If I could, I'd give this one to you. Not using it for anything, except as inventory decoration.

@Chagtin & Eduardo- Doh! You are correct; I read it wrong (thought it was saying -20% suppression not -20% damage)...did I mention I'm still working on my first cup of coffee this morning? X-P

true, it was said before *can't remember the update exactly* still in real life for supressors you do use a lower speed bullets.... thus probably lower damage.

Not much luck with purple weapons. Ironically, I have at least 5 purple gear now.

Also, the last update change more of my purple items to blue rather than the other way around. Still no sign of a purple shotgun yet.

Item cap is coming after crafting comes out, plus he'll never "lose" anything out of his inventory, he just won't be able to collect any more loot from missions (once the limit is turned on) until he gets his inventory under 500. :)

i do recycle daily... just 3 teams each doing 2-3 missions per day gives too much items... for gear and weapons had to recycle anything not blue and purple below lvl 15.. still too much...

I lift my hat for your luck, i drag around with 50/50 gray/green stuff for my 10 survivor. Good luck with the scavenging people! [2/mission works, 3/team mission is a walk in the park, 4-5/mission is a waste of human resorces]

so i just wanted to point out to everyone in this thread

Con said that when the inv cap comes out
it will be capped at 500
and he said that nothing will be culled however you just wont be able to take any more items in after you reached cap
right so far?

if you are over cap now
and this update comes out and you still are
if you go to try and recycle these items

what makes you think these NEW components will go back into your inventory?

My journey for suppressed weapons is getting better (sorry to rub anyone's noses in finding purples...)
Can you get suppressed M24's?
Not brilliant on the damage, but I have a few purple & blue ammos to compensate.
Now I have enough for a silent (slightly underpowered) squad... (ignoring the first 3 - i have X2 suppressed UMP's)

i find going in suppressed leaves me coming out dead too often. i suppose special ammo helps. and obviously a 5 man team will make it. but i see suppressed guns like a novelty. fun, but not a reliable tactic... i can't say if there are pvp applications or not (wouldn't think so)

It gives me something to do while I wait for the higher level expansion :D

You can't scavenge:
- level 17-20 melee weapons
- level 19-20 SMG's
- level 18-20 pistols
- level 19-20 LMG's

It seems you can find exceptions by opening HERC crates. Ogunther found level 20 XM LMG, so it's possible to find level 20 katanas, level 20 pistols, etc.

Isn`t a level 16 Thumping Longarm,with 174-223 damage good enough?
i never use melee weapons, but min 174 damage sounds heavy enough. or?
