Question Drop Rate of Infinity Pistols

After obtaining a pair of these:

I wondered if a Shock Variant existed.

So I checked the wiki and there is one.
So next, I checked on who is most likely to drop it.
It's Doc Mercy.

But considering I'm looking for a very specific one, identical to the one in the picture (I want the scope) but for Shock, are the odds very low of me getting the one I want via drop?

And how often do they drop anyway?

OP, nobody can specifically answer your questions. All we know is that the drop rate for the Infinity is low.

Also, if people tell you that the drop rate is 0.07%, they are not correct.

The Infinity has one of if not the lowest drop rate in the game. The chance of getting a specific version is even more rare.

Between Pete and the armory, I almost don't bother to pick them up. I would jump at a shock one though.

You would be much better off trading for them. Once you start multiptlying drop rate x prefix x scope type x element the mathematics become ridiculous. Always infinities in the trade forum though.

0 percent from Doc Mercy, case closed. Although he did drop me 2 back to back yesterday in my pistol farming runs. I screamed like a little girl with joy..

OP if you want to find out what the drop rate is then do about 1000 runs and collect the results.

I'm sorry to say that 1000 trials is not even close to being a large enough sample size.

LOL

I must have killed Doc Mercy over a thousand times, (for real) and he never dropped one. . .of any variation.

I've farmed Pete around 200 times total and he's given me two, (plain Jane, no elementals).

That said, since you're looking for a specific variation, I'd strongly recommend trading for it.
