He dropped a few legendaries for me last night, most notable was a Hellfire and DP Harold, both of which were a first (and I farm a lot). One kill had 3 drops, the next one had 2.

He did seem to start out really hot, then got really cold.

I got a Razor Hammer Buster from Pete, too. Has to be a conspiracy.

I had an amazing run last night. 10 runs 9 legendaries. Granted most of those are easily farmable? but things like hammer busters and storm fronts and the like are great finds.

Iv found his drops rates to be pretty awesome. Farm for about half hour a day and in the last week iv got 3 legendary siren mods, 4 different grenade mods, a hefty baby maker and a skookum skullmasher. One time he dropped the skullmasher and a pandemic mod on the same kill.

It's random. Last night with a group of four we ran him for about 2 hours and all we got was 1 Leech. Today we ran him again for 2 hours and got a Fastball, 2 Emperors, 3 Impalers, 1 Black Hole, 1 Baby Maker, 3 Legendary Berserker Mods. 1 Legendary Mechromancer, 1 Legendary Soldier, 1 Invader.

Random is random

Granted, he does have the best drop rates in the game, but why is it so hard for me to get a madhous! or shreddifier. What do you guys think about Pete's drop rates?
I'm in the same boat. Christmas eve I went 14 for 16 with 2 double drops, since then I've been getting 1 every 10-15 runs...and always shields or mods. I'm just hoping things swing around again soon.

Update: Just got a Black Hole on run 5 so hopefully the drought is over.

Don't know has happened, but i just killed him first time. I'm solo player and i thought that would be impossible!! Well, i took him down in ten seconds....that didn't bother me that much, but what pissed me off was loot he dropped!! Practically nothing.......Like 3 tokens and one ****** pistol....that was it!!!

So what is that??? I watch videos people killing Pete and room fills with loot, so...Has Gearbox done something that i don't know or is this normal??
