Farming the Warrior (Conference Call)
Anyone else having massive issues in farming the warrior. I've killed him 100+ times over 4 days and I'm yet to get a single orange weapon nevermind conference call. It just seems like the drop rate for orange weapons are rediculously low. I've been lucky to get the bee, but have also been farming several other bosses for up to 50 kills without any luck.

I completely agree with you. I only got an orange grenade when I first killed it in TVHM, then I have killed him over many times and I do not get any orange weapons nor oranges.

That would be amazing butt stallion, what would you like in return? My collection of orange weapons/shields are limited and not at lvl 50, I have heaps of purple one though, but not sure that is a fair exchange :-)

Over the last week or so, killed warrior ~352 times before he dropped an orange that wasn't jacks mask (dropped 3 times)

over the past 5 day all i got was a mahouse and a flakker but no CC

Doesn't killing the Warrior for the first time guarantee an orange item?

A fire leech legendary grenade mod has been my best drop recently. I've seen a couple bounce off into the lava which was gutting. Burn damage is about the same as the one from terra with the added leech makes it great on bigger single target stuff.

Took a long time for the bee to finally drop instead of some rubbish green AR but now I have it the CC tends to be kept for when I need a second wind. The synergy between that gun and that shield is just too OP for my liking in regular play.

You are doing it wrong! The warrior was created by Gearbox so that it only drops orange the first time you fight it. To get it to drop orange nore than once you need to get to the cave as a new character, copy that character to somewhere safe. You then fight Jack and the Warrior. The warrior is almost certain to drop orange; a shield, a volcano, grenade mod, or a CC. To farm the warrior, you have to copy the sav file you backed-up back in to your game files, then you fight Jack and the Warrior again. If you dont do it exactly that way, you are wasting your time. It won't drop an orange no matter how may time you kill it. The orange is designed to fall on the raised section in front of the control panel, so it is nearly always on or close to that.

Agreed. I have all the CC's ( thanks to warrior farmiing, lol ) but I only use them in emergency. they are far too powerful and if you start using them, its very tempting to use them all the time, so best not to use them at all.

then if he dont drop orange anymore then elpain what the madhouse and flakker are doing in my bag?

stallion thanks for sorting me out keep in touch will be happy to return the favor when I have something useful.

Pocahawtness does that count for all the bosses or just the warrior

He doesn't drop 100% orange first time, i have been through him with 2 seperate characters twice and have only gotten an orange after 352 runs.

This is asinine, I've never gotten oranges on any of his first deaths, and I've gotten 3 oranges from him from farming him. Granted they weren't what I wanted, but they still dropped.

Odds are a funny thing, you can go for days and get jack squat, then you can get a lucky streak and get tons. Still find drop rates obnoxiously low for a non MMO game...
