I am looking for your guidanceto help me find (legitimately I might add) a One Shotter, the fabled triple AMP rolled EPIC Purple Shield from Pangolin. After much searching I have few answers, and more questions for the forum…
(Note I would have uploaded a picture, but this item is so rare I haven’t got one)
(Answer) Given this is a purple rarity item (a shield) it should be most efficiently acquired from Dr Zed’s vending machines - running on M4, and using the Spendopticon in Moxxi’s DLC I can cover x4 ZED’s MED’s machines quickly (Save/Quit), and probably get a look at 10-15 purple shields per load. (vs) Running and gunning the Slaughter houses on M4 where I can only get 3-10 purple shields per completed 5 rounds or say the Takedown and again only get 3-8 purple shields in 10-15 mins
Using the above method over the last 2 days I have seen 3 (yes only three) AMP x2 variants in maybe 400 vending machines - maybe 500 I lose count.
(Question) Is it possible to get a One Shotter from the Vending Machines in the DLC?, or would I be better hitting up those in the original game? I can’t see why it would limit me this way, but anybody out there with proof?
(Question) Does luck play any role (*pun) in the vending machine outcomes? Are you more likely to get Purples vs Whites/Greens if your running with some lucky Guardian points, a Mod, or artifact?
(Question) Does anybody know how many variations there are (the odds therefore) of hitting a one shotter? I’m figuring 10,000/1 at a guess but hoping it’s not 50,000/1.
(Question) I have yet to see any other triple effects on one item, but assume there would be a triple Health, or Absorb, or Reflect that are out there? - Anyone, Bueller, anyone…
Your help, thoughts, amusing comments, are always appreciated.
