This question is so open ended. What level are you so what maps do you have access to? If you are high level than the urban warfare vest at empire arena clothing store is a great 1 click item. It also depends on where you are weak. Either create a spreadsheet you can use on your own and look up Lars spreadsheet that he posted here.

You're not giving us much to work with. Just do whatever the people above me said to do. I'm sure they know what they're doing... :)

I just opened up Empire Arena and saw that the clothing store buy in for me is 7 mil +. The info I've seen posted says the drop rate is .31 / 1000 energy. Is this still accurate as far as you know? Just want to make sure the buyin justifies the cost.

The urban warfare doesn't drop very well at all. I get 1 for every couple thousand. The NATO gas mask at the airport drops extremely more often than the vest.

I beg to differ, i have 191 UWV and they drop as they should for me.
usually 2/6 is average but if you farmed M4 then you know how it goes.

* due to ATM event they have dropped less

Hi countersniper... question: would you spend time/energy on the last two bosses to get decent loot every 2.5 days, or would you pound away at like ECB or UWV until you get a decent amount of those?

I was having next to no luck farming MWV, to the point that I got one a day. Really not worth the exp invented. I started doing the BM boss mission and a little over 1 week later I have 3 experimental mech suits (17/33) to show for it and 3million in cash.

Really think the boss missions are worth the time they take to do.

I personally am doing Ma Sheng at the Black Market. It only cost me 455k to buy in and I got a Reinforced Tonfa 24/19 and 1.2 million cash on 1st completion.

I think thats pretty nice.

Kane at Octagon Alley will cost me $4.5 million to buy in so I'm gonna wait a couple days but there is a nice vehicle that can drop there plus approx same cash. Dont recall stats.

You have to decide what you think is best for your particular situation and current equipment needs but its worth it in my book.

To each their own, the money collected sounds good but i have an income of 450k ph so its not that tempting.
in the past 4 days i've farmed 47 giving me 5/6 attk/def, i am glad to take 235/282 added to my stats oppossed
to 36/57 for a weeks worth of farming.

If I was makin that bank I might reconsider. Thats why i said he's gotta weigh his own circumstances.

Plus I have horrible luck farming so I like the guaranteed drop. I mean really horrible luck.

It also depends on your time horizon...if you farm UWV or ECB those will be replaced at some point, while all the drops at Oct Alley are basically top-RP items or better, so won't be replaced in the long-run.

Also, if you expand your argument to how you spend RP instead of energy..I'm sure the 10/2 that NVB's would give you for only 300 RP is a better per RP investment that wherever else you are spending it too.
