I’ve been farming Vermivorous for a while trying to get the head for Axton, but the thing is, i’ve been farming him with Maya because it goes a lot faster but so far he only dropped skins for her. It is just RNG or the skins actually have higher chances to drop for the character you’re using? Should i farm him with Axton?
According to the loot system’s creator, the drop chances of class mods, heads, and skins are weighted in favour of, but not exclusively for, your character. So you stand a better chance of getting the one you want if you use that character. It’s still random though - I’ve had streaks of the same character head or skin dropping from a boss regardless of which one I used for the farming run! Just RNG being random.
They’re weighted to the character you’re using, but not by much. When I was farming Terra for Axton’s head using Axton I got the one for Gaige and two for Salvador before getting the one for Axton. Still, I’d say you stand a better chance of getting the one you want by using the right character.
