Stats Updated May 28: Hey guys, as you know, I’ve been keeping track of the credits I spend on packs. I thought it might be interesting to compare the actual drop rates for weapons, characters, and ultra rares in the packs (Spectre, Premium Spectre, Arsenal, and Reserve). Here are my results – they may be a little skewed because I’d already maxed out all my Rares and Uncommons before starting to keep track, but for the most part, I think the numbers are pretty true to form.
|Weapon Drop Rate||18.9%||28.4%||9.0%||4.3%|
|Character Drop Rate||39.9%||52.7%||1.2%||12.0%|
|Ultra Rare Drop Rate||1.9%||2.6%||3.0%||4.3%|
|Credits Spent Per Ultra Rare||649,091||760,500||663,300||459,360|
I am not surprised that I’ve had a greater drop rate with the Spectre and Premium Spectre packs for weapons – the last 20 or so Arsenal packs I’ve bought have had no weapons to speak of! It seems the Ultra Rare drop rate has been pretty close for all of the packs, though in terms of credits per ultra rare spent, the Reserve Pack has been the winner.
Of course, results may be skewed because at some point you unlock most of the good stuff and only get crap after, so if I had bought 100 Arsenal Packs first rather than Spectre Packs, maybe I’d have better odds with the Arsenal Packs. Oh well. The point is, I’ve spent way over 65M credits total (including the packs before I started tracking) and I still don’t have a maxed manifest! :)
The most surprising find for me is the success of Reserve packs for UR weapons. From here on out, I plan to only buy Reserve packs … gotta get that Lancer X!
Which packs have you had the most success with? Let me know in comments!
