I am okay if there is no duping… in the loot instancing mode.
In instancing mode everyone gets the “boss” weapons but in classic loot mode there will be only one boss weapon drop. In classic mode only one person can have said weapon and that would be terrible for a party after the develops made weapons we can use that the bosses used in the fight.
Only way around one time drops in standard loot mode is by duping or having to run same boss multiple times on different play throughs… or not caring about collecting/playing with the special weapons.
I really like instanced loot and I am trying to convince my friends to run that mode cause it makes more sense to play that way… more weapons and more trading. I am pretty open when I see a loot chest and I am sure I will give a shout out when I find a weapon and ask if anyone wants it before I sell it to Marcus or what not. Maybe once my friends and I beat the story and are level 50 with he weapon loadout we want, we can run classic loot mode in the proving grounds.
I know duping isn’t smiled upon but when there are special weapons that only drop once, it’s better to have a party with 4 of that weapon than one weapon in a party of 4.
edit: totally forgot farming was a thing haha. but in old games bosses had drop rates and from gameplay videos bosses always dropped their weapon first time… never saw someone farm Mouthpiece but seems like a process to help everyone get the one gun in classic mode.
