In that, while most guns in the game technically can come from any source (if the wiki is to be trusted), most of the time it’s the same ten or twenty things. It’s like legendaries come with hidden tiers or something, with the crappier ones intentionally dropping more frequently (some have been buffed but still drop as frequently, but still). Not sure if this is deliberate or if the RNG is wonky, or if some weapons have simply been accidentally excluded from most loot pools.
It sucks that there are so many awesome and fun guns in this game, and not only do we have the problem of anything decent being nerfed to hell and back, some gear simply isn’t dropping.
Here are some examples I’ve noticed, excluding dedicated loot.
Common af tier:
The stuff that you will see at least one of when an enemy drops more than one leg.
Woodblocker, ASMD, WTF, Scourge, Ripper, T.K.s Wave, Krakatoa, Nova Berner, Woodblocker, Polybus, Malak’s Bane
dlc: Flama Diddle, Anarchy, Plumage, Cheap Tips, Oldridian
Not as common, but still somewhat regular when farming.
Hellshock, Recursion, Storm, Sickle, Flakker, Firestorm, Alchemist, Dictator (but only after nerf), any of the crappy artifacts that only make slight modifications to slam or slide
dlc: Robin’s Call, any dlc COMs, Nukem
Way less common, but still able to get it as a random drop if you’re lucky.
Lasersploder, Shredifier, basically any decent AR
Practically dedicated gear:
Stuff that seems to only come from one source. If any of this stuff actually is dedicated gear, my apologies, but I’m just going with the information I’ve been given (that they can come from any source, according to the wiki). Some of this stuff I’ve never even seen in the game, so I’ve not got much to go on here.
One Pump Chump, Sitorak, Smart-Gun, Sledge’s Shotgun, 9-volt, The Garcia, Redline, Mind-Killer, Headsplosion, Crossbow, Hive, Quadomiser, Linc, Night Flyer, It’s Piss, Skeksil, Scorpio XL, Psycho Stabber.
DLC: I don’t even know, but I know there are definitely some dlc legs I’ve never seen drop. Hell, I didn’t get an ION LASER until after I switched from ps4 to Steam.
