Default better loot with co-op

if i get my brothers xbox to join my game idle with a three way split screen (all four of us with vault hunters relic) will i get a bit better loot than solo? He wont be playing so it may be difficult but i should get the loot of four people. If i can survive, how good will the loot be? will more guns be dropped from the bosses and invincibles or will it simply be higher chance of purples and rares?

The Vault Hunters Relic doesn't change the drop rates on Purples onward if I recall correctly, but with 4 players the rates will universally be higher. And it should only change the chance of seeing better weaponry, not the amount.

that's cool. i thought the relic had small chance of replacing whites when dropped for greens and possibly above. so with four of them and four people hopefully the loot for will atleast be better for blues and purples and slightly better for legendaries and pearls

It doesn't work for Purple, Legendary, Seraph or Pearl items. It only works for Greens and Blues I believe.

VHR does increase all rarities according to tests, so for a idling character it wouldn't hurt using one I suppose.

Also there is no study done of 1P-4P drop differences, but I am pretty certain that co-op will not dish out "better weaponry" than solo play.

It wouldn't even be plausible; how would the game mechanics know which sight, element, or even parts are better in the eyes of that specific farmer?

I'm thinking there might not even be a difference in the higher end drops with multiple players versus farming alone.

So I guess the old test done back in the day was inconclusive?

Well then.

The VHR one?

Yeah the newer one(s) imply it affects all rarities, but the differences are very diminishing at the higher end of the ladder, so using a relic that actually speeds up the killing process is much more viable option.

i thought 4 people would be a fair bit better loot than 1, especially if one peerson gets to keep all of it

You will get better loot but your game will be really hard if he is not playing.
