View Full Version : Either these gun safe's are obsure or I'm incredibly unlucky...

Day 1, I found roughly 8 safes, 6 successful within the maps. The L2 days I've been scouring through the maps and fought about 113 people, all of which have resulted in zero drops. Maybe it's my level, though, I've jumped three levels due to this asinine attempt (currently L27), but I may have to call it quits on the gun safe's as I'm leveling wayyyy too fast for my liking. I'm still in need of leveling up buildings before I take the plunge to level up much faster.

Any tricks to yielding these event prizes? Not opening, but finding. I was finding briefcases hand-over-fist last week, but these gun safes are hard to come by.

Big energy missions drops them frequently. Then you have PVPs which can drop up to 2 to 3 cases per 10 to 15 stams in my experience. You'll have to get exp and level one way or another though if you want cases. Once you haven a certain amount and if you're non gold, then you can stop.

For my level, I farm a casino and spends about 600 energy with nearq guaranteed drop of a case at the end.

Teahouse at Chinatown - but mostly just PVP - fighting and/or robbing - you get more from PVP as the event goes on........

kykboxr, read this guide to maximizing your Safe:XP ratio.

OK so Nicholost I re-read that - hadn't read in detail before

Based on your comments - it seems that you subscribe to the "theory" that having a low amount of event items on hand may bring a higher rate of success.
I have proposed this before - as have others - but many disagree.
What is your theory based on?
I'm busted on this one because I accumulated too many and am sitting at around 18 at the moment.

cheers

This has been a good place for me, too. Even got some rustys with the safes.

I subscribe to the theory that the amount you have on-hand has no affect on the likelihood of a successful opening. I keep my numbers low for two reasons: 1) hoarding event objects that you may not open by event end means you're also hoarding XP unnecessarily, and 2) if you get your objects from PvP, you're making enemies who will come back for revenge. This is an important point to consider when no-banking.

Me too, man. I did at least 200 Fights and Robberies, dumb ones, too, with little payout just to try and get a gun safe this weekend. I also did at least 40 PvEs. I got ZERO drops. And I leveled up twice.

We have pretty similar stats and levels, so maybe we're outside of where the action is?

I don't think there is any rhyme or reason with how these events go. I could barely keep enough items to open during the last event; I ended that event with 0 extra.
This event... I have way many more than I need without trying. Go figure.

During all of these events, I have gotten most items from PvE. Restaurant Row has been very good to me.
