Can we please lower the drop rate of the Cannonball Set?

1 : Anonymous2021/04/20 17:04 ID: muv1pa

Maybe I'm just unlucky but I have gotten so many pieces of this set when trying to grind for my class armor. Am I just unlucky or does it seem to have a higher drop rate to extend the grind?

head pieces are the ultimate torture, drop rates are for sure lower than 1%

Wanna hear something funny? I have 12 unique legendary helms on my Deva, and not one of them is the Seismic set...

ID: gv8lirs

I have wayyyyyy more legendary head pieces than any other piece of gear.

ID: gv8henz

100% agree, after like 200 expeditions Ive only had 1 marshal helmet, 1 seismic helmet, 1 deathproof helmet. statue helmet is a bit weirder but around 3 drops total

Oddly I think there is a pity system. I got full sets of everything minus deathproof legs and seismic helmet around 150 clears. I want to say half way from that to 200 clears was the deathproof legs then FINALLY the seismic helmet.

Im convinced that theres a "checklist" of what items you dont have and the game is running down it as you get x # of legendaries

edit: typos

ID: gv8zn76

I've gotten 6 Torrential Downpour helms after about the same number of expeditions, but that's literally the only legendary helmet I've seen so far, and I have yet to get a full set of armour aside from Cannonball about 4 times over.

So I have to politely disagree with the idea of a checklist or pity system.

You have one seismic helmet? After only 200 runs? Yes officer, this man right here

ID: gv9g6ux

Yeah, pity system. That is why after my 400 legendaries, I have 45/46 weapons, except High Roller, which was the only one I actually needed. Some weapon dropped 10 times, some 5. No weapon dropped just 1 time. And I'm still missing this one, so, I guess not, there is no pity system, and you just got lucky. And I am surely done with this pointless farm untill they change something -.-

They put that useless set in the game for this reason unfortunately.

ID: gv81chr

Yea this seems to be on purpose.

ID: gv8be0w

The last 4 legendary drops I have gotten are all cannonball. I did the historian quest and guess what I got... the cannonball helmet to complete the set for my pyro :/

And here I am, just HOPING to get the gloves for the mod. I've gotten idk how many legendaries and have only seen one piece of cannonball.

ID: gv89hce

Here, 11 is enough? I can practically run hunts blindfolded

ID: gv8bhm4

Can you still get leggos when you repeat hunt and wanted quests?

F this set. Seriously.

Get rid of it. It's as useful as malaks bane in Bl3

6 : Anonymous2021/04/20 18:21 ID: gv8bocg

Im just sad the sets not melee focused in a meaningful way, like its 3 piece bonus is a tier 2 mod at best

ID: gv8ewd7

my thoughts exactly... this would be a totally fine set if legendary drops were more frequent and this is something you'd come across early in the game. As something that can also drop late game, it's just not up to par. Even if you boosted melee through mods and skills (if a tree has that option), it's a slow clunky mechanic that requires you to not fire your weapon versus a variety of other methods that replenish your gun's ammo; often without even having to stop firing.

I for one treasure my three cannonball legs pieces

8 : Anonymous2021/04/20 20:54 ID: gv8xwbi

What do you mean? I'm almost at 100k Titanium, still missing like 10 different legendary weapons (including the most OP one, Deathshield), and I've only seen cannonball set roughly 8000 times, that's not too bad.


9 : Anonymous2021/04/20 23:30 ID: gv9ir3k

All the set and legendary drop rates are trash in this game. Considering the relative shit power increase over epics, restricting legendary drops at the level they have has legit pushed me away from the game.

Give me my gear and set, let the stats roll random so there's always the perfect min max piece to chase. Let us not only alter a mod, but if the stats are random, give us the ability to change one of the stats using shards.

ID: gv9klvy

I think the only viable stat combos on armor for expeditions at tier 15 are firepower, close range, cooldown, or firepower, long range, cooldown, and/or anomaly, status, cooldown (Could possibly swap out status for long/close range if you're not using toxic, burn, or bleed.)

Max health is piddling amounts of health, it may as well not exist as a stat. Being able to roll both long and close range on the same item is a slap in the face. What're the other mods that can roll on armor? The leeches? Just need one leech mod on the weapon, either skill or weapon leech.

Edit: Whoops, my point with this was the fact that some legendaries don't have these combos of stats cough almost all class sets cough absolutely sucks, and means the character is gimping themselves with legendaries vs just grabbing a purple with one good mod on it and the 3 perfect stats, modding the other mod slot, and upgrading that purple forever.

ID: gv81tzp

Said no one ever haha. But I agree about globally raising drop rates, this is tough slogging.

ID: gv82x3j

Nah, just lower the drop rates of the ones you have equipped/in bag/stash.

ID: gv81y9x

Half of this reddit said that when the bullet builds got nerfed. 😛

ID: gv8dbva

I actually have a character that uses cannonball, but its a melee techno so probably not a 'normal' build lol

ID: gv8xe2k

I see what you're getting at but that's pretty apples and oranges.

11 : Anonymous2021/04/20 17:35 ID: gv84wig

My first 2 legendary drops were the cannonball helmet.

12 : Anonymous2021/04/20 18:30 ID: gv8czmd

I've only found 3 pieces of armor, and two were Cannonball.

13 : Anonymous2021/04/20 18:56 ID: gv8guxu

They just need to change the Set Bonus to something else like increase in Firepower by 50% or something then it will become useful

14 : Anonymous2021/04/20 19:16 ID: gv8judm

Likely that is exactly the case. Outriders in many ways seems to have been designed as an online live service game like Division or Anthem, and only towards end of development did they decide to change it to not be live service.

15 : Anonymous2021/04/20 19:26 ID: gv8l7d8

🙁 At least the gloves are decent in FP/rounds builds

16 : Anonymous2021/04/20 19:43 ID: gv8np4w

I was pretty happy when I got the gloves as my first legendary armor a few nights ago. I didn’t realize the set was bad.

ID: gv8oh33

Gloves are certainly the best as far as mods go, the set bonus this is not very good.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/20 20:06 ID: gv8qxtr

Ive gotten 4 maws on sunday... the only legos that day lol

18 : Anonymous2021/04/20 20:16 ID: gv8sdjw

I'm at 100 clears gold T14, lacking helm and pants of seismic and the gun with fortress.

Did my first T15 gold clear 1 minute ago, got only purples.

Great way to celebrate yay.

19 : Anonymous2021/04/20 21:00 ID: gv8yq1i

Legendary drop rate is too low for how critical single pieces can be for builds. I would love to try out alternate setups on multiple classes, but because legendaries won't drop, I just can't make any moves.

They should drop more, but have randomized stats. The situation now is just kind of boring.

20 : Anonymous2021/04/20 22:26 ID: gv9aojz

This is the issue for me, this isn't a live service game, they don't need to artificially prolong the game through grind. Give each legendary an equal drop chance.

21 : Anonymous2021/04/20 23:13 ID: gv9gncg

Can we simply get rid of it?

It's bad. It's ugly. It drops too much...

22 : Anonymous2021/04/20 23:15 ID: gv9gwcd

This! Been farming expeditions for 4 hrs 90% of my legendaries are cannonball. 10% was dupes or legendaries I don't need.

23 : Anonymous2021/04/20 23:51 ID: gv9l9z1

The way I see it, the drop rate isn’t technically higher then other drops but it’s more of an oversight.

A legendary drops, It then rolls to see what type. Weapon/Armo

Specific Set/Non Class Specific Set.

Since there’s only a single Non Class Specific Set that gives you a 25% chance of getting a Cannonball piece. It 100% should be lower but I see what they’ve done

24 : Anonymous2021/04/21 00:52 ID: gv9sgwl

My first 3 legendary armor pieces were all the Cannonball Helmet. Not even the set, just the helmet. Then again, it's possible it's just all pure probability playing out.

25 : Anonymous2021/04/20 18:01 ID: gv88r9f

The cannonball set is just a meme at this point.

I feel those are only common when doing quests. Never got a part of that set while on expeditions.

ID: gv84vfl

I have gotten quite a few so maybe I'm unlucky

28 : Anonymous2021/04/20 19:59 ID: gv8pyg3

It’s supposed to be a grind. If the game just gave you every piece of legendary gear, it wouldn’t exactly be a good looter shooter. It’s supposed to be common to go tons of expeditions dry and getting duplicate legendaries.

ID: gv8qge1

I agree with you to a point, but it's arguably bad design to inflate the grind with bad gear that (potentially) drops at a higher rate. Many games solve this problem with targeted drops or even just making it completely even chance of receiving any legendary.

ID: gv8yxx6

Yeah the grind is nuts.

Even if you do the trick to re-roll hunt turn ins, it's still taking hours and hours to even see a class piece drop.

29 : Anonymous2021/04/20 23:34 ID: gv9j6bz

omfg yes, every gorram set drop that I get excited about ends up being cannonball again.
