Trenched: Bling Paint Job & Other Fine Loot.

#1 Posted by Redsand26 (125 posts) -

Here we discuss cool weapons, core mods, and any other enhancements you may find, locations of those dropped items, and shared information on rare drops.  
 
For starters, I've gotten the 'Hot Pants" leg modification as a random drop on the Power Plant mission in the Pacific. 
 
Bling Paint:  Complete the Personal Challenge mission victories level 5.  (50 Victories) to unlock.  This seems to be the only challenge-based paint job.

@Redsand26: For some reason the game glitched out and gave me that paint job on my 4th mission as long as I didn't change my paint job I could keep it. The same thing has been happening with other items such as the glasses, torn shirt, etc.

i played a game with someone wearing that tuxedo, i quit then logged back on, and somehow i had the tuxedo suit on, i havent bought it and as soon as i put another outfit on it was gone, weird.

I had similar things happen to me. I would log out then revisit the game and my trench would be a different color and the weapons would be slightly different.

Yeah I had this happen too, I was inspecting someone else's trench, then it got all crazy so I quit out and when I got back in I was in that person's outfit and with their trench setup (minus weapons, where I guess I had different ones unlocked than they did). Game is super glitchy right now with the online.

yea, anyone notice any improvements since that little update we were required to install?

I think it was mostly to help fix the matchmaking, as now I tend to find more acceptable connections that don't get killed by super lag.

Are there random drops? Where do they come from anyways? I thought loot was set for each level.

I'm at the point where i haven't seen a  new item in a while, 
Really looking forward to some DLC

@The_Laughing_Man: in the multiplayer games for the later stages i've been seeing 2-4 random drops per level

#11 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

With 4 players, the later levels have a lot of minibosses.  And they all drop loot.  So playing co-op, you'll see plenty of items.Probably 5 per level.

@Redsand26: I liked the theory of the Hot Pants, but found them to be really useless :/

I think my favorite drops was when I got two "The King" artillery cannons from one mission. Those things are ridiculous and fun as hell to dual wield.

#13 Posted by AMxKaOtIcDeV (33 posts) -

maybe i havent played enough to unlock everything but so far i only have maybe 2 different weapons that are level 9, still dont have any legs that are level 9 and i beat the game/played online alot.

Ive never seen a random drop. Does it only come from bosses?

All the mini-bosses: Big Willie, Arty, Bertha, and the Volt Dropper all drop a crate when they die.  I fyou pick that up before the level ends you get loot.  I believe the loot table is different for each level (or region).  In co-op everyone gets their own loot.  So everyone gets 1 random roll per loot crate collected by anyone.  I think every level except the boss levels has mini-bosses.

Also, groups of Breakers will sometimes drop loot. The game gives you a pop-up when you or someone in your group recovers the box, and then everyone in the party gets a share at the end.

Got Mr. Pancakes. Liking that. I enjoy the Assault class most of all, so I tote around the Scythe (Machine Gun), the Hedge Trimmer (Machine Gun), and Mr. Pancakes (Artillery).

I prefer MIRV Artillery weapons to Cluster Artillery weapons, but that's a subjective thing, I think, as both are ludicrous.

So I can get random boxes on any level? How rare s it? Ive played the first two levels quite a few times to get money. 
#18 Posted by HistoryInRust (6289 posts) -

@The_Laughing_Man: For the sub-bosses like Big Willie, you should be seeing the loot boxes consistently. Like, every time you kill one.

For the Breaker group thing, that might be contingent on whether you're playing with a group or solo. But it's happened both ways for me.

If I were you, I'd just move on from the first two missions if you haven't already. The levels are scaled somewhat in the loot they drop, so you'd start to breach diminishing returns pretty quickly.

When i have re played the levels ive gotten the exact same stuff over and over. I have not had time to play much. Ill play more tommorow

The other night my friend and I were in a lobby (on the boat) together alone and all of a sudden 3 different people showed up on the players list yet his avatar and name were still on my boat. When we both exited, he had all of my high rank clothes, trench, paint, and equipment and here is the real kicker, I lost everything I had equipped (high rank clothes, trench, and equipment but kept my paint) and my stuff was replaced with some random very low level stuff!!!! I was utterly devastated but luckily I've gotten everything back and I'm glad it didn't happen before I got my Razputin clothes/achievement.

Also, for some reason today my Regiment Challenges stopped updating. I wonder if it is a bug when you complete your personal challenges....

#21 Posted by louiedog (2335 posts) -

Is there a specific place The King is supposed to drop or something you have to do before it will? I have 60+, maybe even 70+, wins spread across every continent. I have every achievement. I've been level 10 forever. I've completed all of the personal challenges and I'm close on the regiment challenges. It's even possible that I finished them, the game stopped showing me the updates for them today. I have not gotten a King yet. Are they just that rare?

#22 Posted by TheH1ppo (64 posts) -

@louiedog: Actually, I'm in the exact same position. When I saw people talking about "The King" I was confused because I've never seen it, even on someone else's trench. Every achievement, level 10, all gold stars,and completed most if not every challenge just as you did with no luck. :/

#23 Posted by JillSammich (105 posts) -

I love my Mr. Pancakes.  I have yet to get a King, although I was playing with someone this morning with one and it is indeed ridiculous.  
 
I'm curious as to whether there are any level 10 cores though.  My level 7 assault core is the strongest one I've found so far.

I've had several glitches...I've gotten the S-2 Ripper as loot in a europe campaign mission which your not supposed to get till one of the pacific missions. I've gotten the Gungnir in one of the Europe missions which your not supposed get till the african missions. The bling paint coat I got when I was about halfway through the campaign with only 20-30 mission victories.
